The fourth annual Veld Music Festival will be held Saturday, August 1st and Sunday, August 2nd. Veld is an all ages, non-camping electronic festival in Downsview Park, Toronto. Popular mainstream electronic headliners drawing crowds include Deadmau5, Kaskade, Hardwell, Above & Beyond, and Steve Aoki. Pretty Lights will be playing the smaller of the two stages on the first day. Aside from the huge names, there will also be some up-and-coming artists featured like Carnage, ILoveMakonnen, The Chainsmokers, and Kill the Noise.

 

 

Two-day GA passes are $244; VIP admission for the weekend is available at around $300 up front, or for three payments of $137. The VIP perks are limited to shorter lines upon entry, shorter lines at the bars, shorter lines at the bathrooms, somewhat nicer bathrooms, a tent full of seats to rest in, and more manageable crowds at the water stations. Free water refill stations available to GA ticket-holders are known to be so crowded that buying overpriced water is almost a necessity. Parking is included with the VIP ticket, but designate a driver because guests are not allowed to leave their cars overnight. There is no age limit for the festival, but VIP tickets are only available to people age 19 or older.

Last year’s festival resulted in numerous drug-related hospitalizations, two of which resulted in death. As a response to these incidents, this year Veld is distributing health and safety kits, a list of festival tips, and maps showing stations for water, medical attention, and food. Though there is no guarantee that these efforts  Veld is a viable option for anyone who loves the lineup and prefers staying in a hotel room. Check out the video below to get a glimpse of the high energy culture that will be carried into 2015.
