VELD Music Festival is hitting Toronto on August 4th, 5th, and 6th, bringing talented artists from a range of electronic genres to Downsview Park. With three stages focused on different genres like house, dubstep, bass, and rap, VELD has an act for everyone regardless of the time. 

Multi-instrumentalist duo MXJ is kicking off the first day on the main stage. House producers Manzone and Strong, Matroda, Jauz, and Two Friends are following before Zedd brings his electro-pop and Illenium closes the night out. Friday includes a UK Rap Stage, bringing in a different style while the Sirkus Stage is going through house and techno with Kevin Faria, SOSA, Eli Brown, Solardo, and Gorgon City in that order.

The lineup caused a stir when it dropped with a Rezz and deadmau5 (Rezzmau5) set, who are headlining after Above & Beyond, Don Diablo, and Lost Frequencies. Distant Matter is opening followed by Disco Lines and Gareth Emery. Saturday debuts the Bass Stage with Luklab, Steller, Funtcase, Wooli, SVDDEN DEATH, and Slander to close. 

Contagious beats are hitting the Sirkus Stage with sets from Chiara Manchia, J. Worra, and Jauz, who is playing his second set of the weekend. Dom Dolla and Bob Moses are closing the stage out. Starting off with DeeCee, Twinsick, Timmy Trumpet before a Sofi Tukker DJ set and Loud Luxury, the VELD Main Stage is ending the festival on a high note. 

Sunday’s Bass Stage is packed with experimental bass and heavy dubstep with Lukav, Zingara, Kaivon, Sullivan King, and Liquid Stranger. Akwa, CID, Korolova, and Meduza are taking over the Sirkus Stage. Tiesto, Subtronics, and James Hype are bringing the festival to an end on August 6th. VELD confirmed that the shows will end promptly at 11 pm. 

The 10th anniversary of VELD Music Festival is going to be one to remember. Now that stage lineups have been released, attendees are able to curate their own experience. Tickets for the festival are still available on their official website.
