TORONTO, /CNW/ – Waveland Canada is thrilled to announce its first in-person Everbloom music festival, a celebration of performing artists in Canada and a chance to support Black Canadians who are working to create art, music, and culture.
This year’s festival will take place in-person at the Great Hall in Toronto on February 25th 2023, with a focus on celebrating Black performing artists from a variety of backgrounds and genres. The festival has had several successful virtual editions over the past 2 years, and is ready to bring audiences together again via live music. Guests will also have the opportunity to visit a vendors market featuring artisanal products from Black-owned businesses in the GTA.
“The theme for this year’s event is #BlackInCanada, which we hope will ignite conversations about how Black people contribute to the fabric of our country’s arts & culture.” says chief executive director of Waveland Del Mahabadi. “It’s also an opportunity for us as Canadians to come together and celebrate our cultural diversity by supporting Black-owned businesses through our vendor market and enjoying performances from drag kings & queens and musicians from across Canada who are making their voices heard through their work.”
With support from the Canada Arts Presentation Fund, The Canadian Race Relations Foundation, FACTOR Canada, and the City of Toronto, the festival’s official lineup of participating Black-Canadian artists, DJs, drag queens, and drag kings has been announced.
