Central Cee is leading the charge among UK rappers set to perform at this year’s Veld Music Festival scheduled for Aug. 4-6 at Downsview Park in Toronto.
The other British rappers appearing on the billing include Aitch, K-Trap, Krept & Konan, Lancey Foux, and Unknown T, who collaborated with Toronto rapper Northsidebenji on “One In The Chamber.”
While Veld is typically known for its EDM-heavy lineups with a few rappers sprinkled onto them, the 2023 edition marks the first time the rappers come from primarily the United Kingdom. The electronic music headliners are Above & Beyond, Ilenium, Tiësto, Zedd, and Canadians Loud Luxury and Rezzmau5.
The 2022 edition of Veld featured Gunna and Polo G as the headliners in the rap section, but the 2023 poster puts the EDM headliners front and centre.
The pre-sale begins on Wednesday, Feb. 1 at 9 a.m. with sales to the general public beginning the next day at 8 a.m.
