#BigTicket enters its third year on Aug. 8 [News]

Toronto, ON – It’s that time of the month again, people. Our friends over at EasParkPro are delivering the August edition of the monthly #BigTicket showcase at WrongBar. #BigTicket is a HipHopCanada-sponsored event, by the way. The upcoming showcase goes down on Aug. 8, with doors opening at 10 p.m. and the show kicking off at 10:45 p.m.

As always, Dan-e-o will be hosting. Featured artists on this month’s performance roster include The Kid Famous, SepTo, PinKush ‘n Kidz, BTRO Project, and DJ Craig Brooklyn. Kid Famous is making his Toronto-comeback after successfully hitting the show circuits out in Asia (and releasing his Center Stage project). And DJ Craig Brooklyn will be guest DJing alongside DJ Law. So we’re in for all kinds of fresh tuneage.

It’s also the kick-off date for the event’s third year in business. You may have caught the monster two-year celebration that went down earlier this month. If you missed it, you can catch up on some show coverage (courtesy of Northern Hussle) over here. You can cop advance tickets over here. And head on over here to submit to perform at #BigTicket. You know you wanna. Peep more details after the jump.
