9th Annual Manifesto Festival of Community and Culture
On Wednesday, September 16, 2015 the 9th Annual Manifesto Festival of Community and Culture will showcase Canadian-born and international talent for another year. With a goal of highlighting talent in music, dance and visual arts from across Greater Toronto Area Manifesto launches this year’s festivals under the theme “One-City”, and will have a uniquely Toronto-centric lineup. The festival will take place from Wednesday, September 16 – Sunday, September 20.
This year’s festival brings back the staples that Manifesto has come to be known for, including Live at the Square, the all-day free celebration of music, art, dance and food at Yonge-Dundas Square. Torontonians will be treated to a line-up of some of Canada’s most talented veteran and up-and-coming artists, including Melanie Fiona, a l l i e, Pluto and Junia T. We'll also have several international artists featured throughout the festival including GoldLink, Taj Francis and SOSUPERSAM.
Manifesto will also mix things up this year, introducing Toronto to some of that new new—an evening of future soul and forward thinking hip hop from some of Toronto's most talked about artists. The event promises to shine a light on the talent that exists here in the city and showcase some of the best that Canada has to offer.
