25 photos from the weekend rave at Downsview Park

Posted by Staff / August 6, 2013

veld 2013Say what you want about EDM raves vs. rave-raves, but if you weren't at VELD this weekend, you missed Canada's most colourful, positive party of the year. Big names like Deadmau5, Pretty Lights, and Steve Aoki were all at Downsview Park this long weekend, but (like, duh) the real story was the teaming crowds of fans: from homemade props and masks, to fairy costumes and LED lights, VELD was all about Toronto showing off its neon underbelly. While some set time juggling went on on Sunday, the number of people who noticed will be lost to time. You might want to put on sunglasses before clicking through to view our favourite moments.

Check out 25 highlights from the 2013 Veld Music Festival in Toronto.

As a veteran of the Syrous, Dose, Better days etc. era of "raves" in Toronto, I can only laugh at this.

As someone who was actually there, I can say that my fiends and I had a fantastic time! Same goes for every single person I met there.

It's always better "back in your day". But that was your day and this is ours so quit comparing and join in the fun!

" the real story was the teaming crowds of fans: from homemade props and masks, to fairy costumes and LED lights, VELD was all about Toronto showing off its neon underbelly.".

If that's the real story, you're about 20 years too late.

" the number of people who noticed will be lost to time."

It would have been more honest if you just said you were high as **** jus sayin.
