To kick-off September, Toronto’s annual music festival, TDOT Fest returned to Dundas Square. Sponsored by Canadian Urban Music Week, Lost Craft Beer and SYLK Vodka, the popular music festival included performances from a multitude of talented artists with different backgrounds ranging from R&B, hip-hop and rock.
Artists on the bill included Dutchess, Blacka Tha Don, Surauchie, JRDN, Thrust, Tony James, DT The Artist, BrYonge, and more. TDOT Fest not only gives artists – both established and emerging – an opportunity to showcase themselves on a festival stage but also gives, hip-hop dance crews a chance to show off their skills; like Fresh Factory (also known as Simply Swagg), and Renegades.
“It definitely forces artists to step up because for a lot of artists, it’s their first time on a festival size stage, where you’re getting between 1,000 to 2,500 people looking at you.” – DT The Artist, Co-Host of TDOT Fest
One of the festival’s performers, Tony James, let us know what it felt like to hit the TDOT Fest stage:
“It’s been a lot of trial and error, but it all makes moments like this worth it.”
