The Bentway's Block Party is set to return to Toronto on August 13, and organizers have unveiled the event's lineup of artists and programming.

Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter BAYLI, Toronto party-starters Tush, queer dance floor mainstay DJ Sofia Fly and Toronto-based Afro-Brazilian percussion group Maracatu Mar Aberto are set to perform, in addition to an ISO Radio-curated roster of DJs, including Jelz, Beat Sampras and dj miss. Toronto-based artist Jillian Jerat, cheer group PCT Cheer & Tumble and dance community collective T.O. Waacking will also join the festivities.

Taking place from noon to 9 p.m. under the Gardiner Expressway at 250 Fort York Blvd., the Block Party will also host family-friendly activities, art workshops, street food and more.

This year's festivities will also include an artist's market with over 80 artists and artisans selling photography, sculptures, jewellery, fashion, home decor, and one-of-a-kind items — in partnership with Toronto Art Crawl.
