ryerson concert

Ryerson throwing huge 6-themed concert this weekend

As students in Toronto wrap up their final exams, Ryerson University is getting ready to celebrate with a massive on-campus concert on Sunday, May 1. And unlike the last one, which famously featured Drake, this upcoming outdoor festival is open to the public.

So far, DJ Esco - Future's official DJ - is scheduled to play, as is a surprise special guest. There's no word on the Drake front, but one of the RSU (Ryerson Student Union) organizers assures that this secret artist is "up there." What a time to be alive.

Tickets for this "6 ¢ Concert" are on sale now - you have to buy them in advance because there won't be any available at the door. And yes, they're actually only six cents each.

Along with the music, the daytime festival will take over the pedestrian-only Gould Street with inflatables, food trucks and a shisha lounge. Even though I graduated last year, this alumna kind of wants to head back to campus for a homecoming of sorts this weekend.
