DJ Deep Fried Fridays - June 27–August 29

Start your weekends off right every Friday as Toronto's hottest DJs are paired up with decadent deep fried goodies for the most sizzling party in town.

Redpath Stage

Curatorial Statement

DJ Deep Fried Fridays returns this summer, bringing with it a different palatable pairing of beats and bites that represent the past, present and future of Toronto’s taste-makers.

In recent times, there have been two rising superstars in our city's cultural landscape: the DJ and the chef. More than ever we turn to these two quick-wristed trendsetters to set the tone and the table for our evenings. As dance floors are filled with the sound of emerging genres and vintage grooves selected by the DJ, the chef is cutting and mixing his or her own creations that are meant to both inspire and delight.

Through The Big IDEA: Legacy we explore the new cultural tradition being forged by these two champions of the city and how their parallel existence helps create our most memorable nights out on the town.

A programme of the complexity and size of this 2014 festival season is only possible with the cooperation, contributions and hard work of every department and all members of the entire Harbourfront Centre staff. We extend our thanks to them all. We would also like to acknowledge and thank the dedicated Harbourfront Centre Volunteer Team who, for the past 35 years, has worked tirelessly to make all our activities possible.
