Super Cat Will Be In Toronto For “SOS Fest”

Summer of Soca Festival, one of the biggest Caribbean events in Ontario, is all set for August 4th through 6th, at Markham Fairgrounds (10801 Mccowan Road in Markham). It will be massive, with a lineup that includes several trending reggae-dancehall and soca artists; plus one very elusive act.

Super Cat, the Cockburn Pen deejay who achieved widespread popularity in the late 80s and early 90s, is confirmed for SOS. This is a big deal because Cat seldom performs live. The show will also feature Bunji Garlin, Nailah Blackman, Alison Hinds, Wayne Wonder, Olatunji, and many more top-tier performers. Get additional info on their website.
