On Friday, June 15, Brampton culture will take to the stage at This Is Brampton, a first-ever partnership with North by Northeast (NXNE), to spotlight some of the most exciting and emerging artists who call Brampton home. The date also coincides with the highly anticipated world premiere of SuperFly – a remake of the 1972 classic by one of Brampton’s finest, and 2018 inductee to the Brampton Arts Walk of Fame, Director X.
A special announcement will be made by the City of Brampton regarding Director X’s induction, along with a surprise message (and possible appearance) by the renowned director, filmmaker and hometown star during the This is Brampton takeover at the Rivoli (334 Queen Street West).
The music showcase will be hosted by multi-platinum music producer EestBound, who has produced tracks with Travis Scott, Young Thug and many more, and will feature live performances by Brampton’s most exciting, yet-to-be-signed talent including Vaz, Selena Dhillon, Phab and EverythingOShauN.
On the heels of Alessia Cara’s Grammy win, Jessie Reyez’s JUNO Award and Rupi Kaur’s sold-out global tour, the City of Brampton has emerged as a bona fide cultural hub that is fostering some of the world’s most creative and authentic talent.
You can watch the trailer for Director X’s SuperFly below via YouTube.
