Organizing events for over 7 years now, Shakti Collective has had the opportunity to bring plenty of artists and names. As someone mentioned above, while in the beginning we devoted ourselves to bringing mostly Psy-Prog artists, in the past few years we have expanded on bringing also acts from other genres of music that in my opinion do not get enough recognition and attention in our city. We had the pleasure to host acts such as Atmos, Fiord, Beckers, Ticon, Sensient, James Harcourt, Shades of Grey, Simon Baring, Johnson (Fusi and Johnson, True Lies), La Baaz, Solead, Freq, Fitalic, Brisker and Magitman, Animaltek, Solid Snake and other interesting and passionate artists, and we are not stopping there! The biggest problem in bringing small-time act to our beloved city is lack of venues. I think that our local crowd (not to offend, but we are very choosy and spoiled) always thinks twice about where a certain party is being held. Our folks always try to go party in places that are big and spacey, within a certain distance of the downtown core and always keep cover prices in check. Unfortunately, due to limited venue choices in Toronto, it is not always easy to accommodate our patrons. We try to keep our party experiences as pleasant and as affordable as possible. In order to do that, we must always rely on your support. Please stay respectful, understanding and keep the vibe alive . We have another great year ahead of us with many great artists to visit our city (and even a few surprises!). We hope to see all of you on our dancefloors.
