Toronto pop/R&B singer/songwriter Jessie Reyez is finally releasing her album Before Love Came To Kill Us on March 27, and this outdoor love-in will herald it in her hometown. This is officially Reyez’s debut album, but it’s certainly not her first rodeo – she’s been on her way up for a few years (including a NOW cover story in 2018), and this show is part of a tour that starts at Coachella. Even if her recent single Love In The Dark leaves us a little bit cold, there are big things coming. July 4 at Echo Beach, doors 7 pm, all ages. $30-$70. On sale February 21. TM
Hip-hop and dance festival Veld has also announced the lineup for its 9th year. As usual, the top line is all big-tent EDM acts – Armin Van Buuren, Illenium, Marshmello and Martin Garrix – while slightly lower on the poster brings the hottest young name in rap, DaBaby, and another big hip-hop draw, Tyga. Find the whole poster below.
August 1-2 at Downsview Park. All ages. On sale February 21. $TBA. August 1-2. veldmusicfestival.com.
