Bestival Toronto

Bestival brings a wacky and massive party to Toronto

Bestival was bonkers. It's the new kid on the block and Toronto was hella friendly this weekend to this UK beast that just pond-hopped right onto our humble Islands. Although, attendance seemed a bit sparse for a festival of this size considering the crowds that descend on, say, VELD, that really lent itself to the intimate, hippie vibe that Bestival was going for.

If Bestival comes back next year, you can bet it will be to an even warmer reception now that it's shown our city its unusual combo of music and mayhem, complete with costume parades, wacky weddings and beach raves. Among the stellar lineup were Florence & The Machine, Nas and Caribou. While it was mostly a dance party, it's the quality, not the genre that's the basis of Bestival's curation.

Check out all the wacky highlights from Bestival's first year in Toronto.
