Show your true colors at Canada’s 2012 Prism Festival
24 April 2012

Toronto’s Prism Festival 2012 is already taking our mind off raincoats and tantalizing us with visions of Sugar Beach park.

Well-known DJs including Tony Moran, Manny Lehman and Hector Fonseca will work the turn-tables at this year’s theme-heavy parties.

The weekend schedule below will tell you what outfits to bring and how much sunblock to apply. The summer circuit event will take place the weekend of 28 June to 1 July.

School’s Out
Thursday night kicks off at Fly Nightclub with Prism College, the weekend’s varsity-themed party, with Sweden’s DJ Micke Hi serving his education on the turntables.

Battle of the Beats
The main room of The Guvernment entertainment complex will house DJs Tony Moran and Hector Fonseca for Friday night’s Bootcamp party.

The Main Event
Saturday will be so big it needs two parties. Jessica Sutta of The Pussycat Dolls is set to perform at the marine-themed Aqua party. DJs Manny Lehman, Honey Dijon and DJ Aron will also take to spinning at the daytime event held at Toronto’s Sugar Beach.

The sunset will beckon performers Erika Jayne, DJs Chus & Cheballos, Micky Friedmann and DJ Paulo to Koolhaus for the weekend’s main event.

The closing show will unite everyone under an open sky for Revival at Skybar patio lounge. DJ Peter Rauhofer, DJ Dave and Gerardo and Javier Medina will keep the beats going until the sun comes back up.
