Multi-award winning rapper, DJ, producer, and music executive Kardinal Offishall‘s new concert series Free The City will blend philanthropy with entertainment on June 30th – as some of Toronto’s best talent and friends come together for an event that bridges generations, area codes and genres.
With most of the world’s performers and DJ’s not having opportunity to work amidst the pandemic, all the profits from Free The City will go directly towards the entertainers with the goal being to lift the spirits of creatives and fans. “My city has been hurting for a long time and I wanted to create an event that allowed us all to come together safely and finally be able to celebrate, heal, and enjoy while rocking to a beautiful sonic backdrop of the sounds of Toronto,” says the Canadian legend. “Many of us have suffered during the pandemic. Being physically distant and trying to remain socially connected has taken its toll on the City of Toronto and the world at large. We haven’t gotten to celebrate together, grieve together, or take part in the everyday joys of life”
Hosted by the voice of Toronto Raptors’ Mark Strong with the support by RX Music and Slaight Music – Free The City will be featuring some fresh faces and legendary entertainers, including Dave Chappelle, Notifi, Michael Che (SNL), Donnell Rawlings, Glenn Lewis, Karl Wolf, Shantel May, Michie Mee, Jamar McNeil (Chum FM), DJ 4 Korners from the Raptors, Swagger Rite, Dr. Jay de Soca Prince, Jester, Blessed, Agile, Asun Eastwood, Golde London and many more! The event will be held at the CityView Drive-In in Toronto on Wednesday June 30th, 2021. Doors open at 6PM — for more information visit https://cityviewdrivein.com
