Saturday June 17th – Red Bull Sound Select threw quite the block party this past Saturday at the Drake Commissary in Toronto. The day party was scheduled to start at 3PM, however Toronto’s weather had something else planned for the city. There was an issued tornado warning for about two hours over the city but thankfully the Red Bull gods came through and brought some sun over the 6ix, with only a couple hours of the block party being delayed.

As the rain clouds began to part and the sun started to shine through, more and more guests started to arrive, ready to get their groove on to some great local acts and performances. Collectif Nude curated the event and they did a great job with all of the decorations, merchandise on site, and bringing their own style to the party.
There were featured performances by MADDEE, Shagabond, Ralph, and Young Clancy. All of these artists brought a great crowd in front of their stage and brought some wicked vibes to the block party filled with positive energy and created a chill atmosphere with their upbeat pop and synth rhythms. There were also three DJ’s Jayemkayem, Max Melanin, and Ganbei, who brought some great hip-hop and deep house tunes for the crowd in between sets.
Towards the evening, more and more guests started to show up and the entire lot was filled with smiling faces and happy dancers. This Red Bull Sound Select show was a complete success and we’re glad that we got to be a part of it! We’re hoping Red Bull Sound Select visits our city more often, they sure know how to throw a party.
