Canada’s largest South Asian music concert desiFEST (presented
by Rogers) celebrated a milestone 5 year anniversary on Saturday May 28, 2011 with record
numbers of fans at Yonge-Dundas Square in Toronto, Ontario.
Over 35,000 visitors danced and enjoyed live entertainment over 12 hours. Canadian and
International artists came together with host SatsB to celebrate five years of desiFEST. It is the
only festival in North America that provides a platform to showcase South Asian music and its best
to mainstream audiences.
Taz and Stereo Nation closed the evening with an electrifying performance with the crowd singing along word for word. Special guest, Toronto’s very own Roach Killa, returned after his own performance to sing with the band.
Navin Kundra made his 2nd debut, wowing the crowd with a remix of Bruno Mars “Nothin’ on You”. As the organizing team always has surprises, the crowd was shocked by Anita Lerche, a Caucasian lady from Denmark singing in Punjabi. This was her very first appearance in Toronto and desiFEST.
Canadian artists performances included: Swaras, Prita Chhabra, Raju Johal, Kateyez, Indy Sagu, Rebecca Nazz, Parichay, and The Bilz & Kashif to name a few. Checkout www.desifest.ca for full line-up.
Guest MC’s and SatsB had the audience screaming for more and more as each artist performed. A thank you to them, all partners and the desiFEST team for their continued support on making desiFEST bigger and better every year.
