Indie Fridays are Back!
Free Music in the Heart of the City
June 24 – September 2
 
 
YONGE-DUNDAS SQUARE (YDS) is proud to present Indie Fridays, the free concert series that will kickstart the weekends in the heart of the city from June 24 – September 2 starting at 8pm

Join the summer fun every Friday night (with a break on Canada Day) at YDS for an eclectic mix of live performances curated by the programming team at Massey Hall, covering diverse musical genres from reggae to hip-hop and sultry soul to Latin world beats.

On Friday, June 24, with support from Canadian Reggae World, the legendary Canadian reggae band Messenjah opens Indie Fridays with their progressive roots sound; with special guest Exco Levi, winner of four consecutive JUNO Awards for Best Reggae Recording.

On Friday, July 8, Halifax indie-rocker AA Wallace instills wicked wit into his lo-fi electro-pop songs; with special guest vocalists, Liz Loughrey whose voice belies her youth and channels soul and jazz masters, and Jordan Alexander performing heartfelt and catchy tracks from her debut album.

On Friday, July 15, in association with Franco-Fête de Toronto, Mehdi Cayenne brings his funky, melodic francophone pop to the stage; with special guest Mélanie Brulée, whose voice dances on the lines between sultry pop star and classic cabaret singer.

On Friday, July 22, with support from Good Kind Productions, Radio Radio, the Montreal-based electro hip-hop band, break down language barriers with their eclectic French-Acadian lyrics and contagious hip-hop beats; with special guests Herencia de Timbiquí who mesh the musical traditions of their tiny home village on Colombia’s Pacific coast with the sounds of the city they now inhabit.

On Friday, July 29, JUNO Award-winning vocalist/producer Boogat unleashes his world beat and tropical bass vibe; with special guests hip-hop crew Los Poetas, who make it their duty to preserve their Latin roots through beats and rhymes.

Indie Fridays continue through September 2 with Ben Caplan (Aug 5), The Heavyweights Brass Band (Aug 12), The Massey Hall Band (Aug 19), Pierre Kwenders (Aug 26), and more!
