Bestival Toronto’s Full Line Up Revealed — And It’s Killer
#BestivalTO is back — with a brand new venue (thank God, because we all know how well the transportation for last’s year’s festival turned out) and a stellar line up. While we were made aware of the big headliners — The Cure and Tame Impala — last week, the festival bill was released yesterday, and it didn’t disappoint.
