Deadmau5 To Headline and Help Organize Toronto’s Veld Music Festival
On August 1, Veld Music Festival will be returning to Downsview Park in Toronto for another installment of their annual event. This year, the festival is turning to one of its frequent headliners to assist with organizing the event.
Deadmau5 headlined the festival's inaugural year in 2012 and would perform again in 2013. Now, event organizers Live Nation and INK Entertainment have recruited him to not only headline the event once again, but also to help put the massive festival in his home city together.
So far, the only artists announced have been Deadmau5 and Hardwell. Rumors have been swirling that the festival leaked on Twitter that Skrillex will also be joining the lineup before promptly deleting the tweet. This comes shortly after Skrillex accidentally leaked the fact that would be joining the Electric Forest lineup on Twitter, stating "So excited to be playing Electric Forest this year... I haven't been since the first one in 2011!" Whoops. Regardless, Electric Forest tickets sold out faster than in any other year, so all is most likely forgiven by festival organizer Insomniac.
With the Veld Music Festival boasting all-star lineups in previous years, you can expect the 2015 festival to bring the same kind of star power. In 2014, Calvin Harris, Above & Beyond, Nero, Zedd, Ingrosso and Knife Party are a few of the artists who performed at what was the festival's biggest year to date. Watch for the Veld Music Festival to put together its biggest and best year yet.
Tickets are on sale February 19 at noon EST. Buy your tickets on the official Veld Music Festival website.
