Also playing are Tink, Ty Dolla $ign, Om, Zola Jesus, Betty Who, and Vince Staples. Predictable with a few intrigues - this is NXNE doing what NXNE does: bringing the Pitchfork blog roll to a wide (but decreased in 2015) range of Toronto stages from Yonge-Dundas Square to the Rivoli.
Enough initial votes on KrowdPop led the site to create a crowdfunding page where fans can purchase tickets to the democratically requested concert, and if enough tickets sell to support the band's performance, the show is officially booked and tickets go on sale to the general public.

The most consistent Wu Tang Clan hero is in the ethereal throes of the best kind of musical journey. Earlier he lewdly professed his admiration for R. Kelly and bellowed, "I feel like Lionel Ritchie in here!" Later he'll cut a rug to the Isley Brothers' "Footsteps in the Dark," the slice of soul Ice Cube rejuvenated with "It Was a Good Day."
The SaveOro website states that a temporary by-law exists allowing for the expansion of Burl's Creek Grounds to accommodate large scale events. Section 7.30.1 states under temporary events "a rock music or heavy metal show is not a permitted special event."

The line up for the Isle of Wight Festival's Toronto version is TBA, but the UK installation's September line up includes some interesting stuff amid the regular fare, from The Chemical Brothers to Dean Blunt. The festival told the New York Times they'll be building a temporary space on the island to hold up to 20,000 people daily.
