We’re excited to announce the music lineup for this year’s Collective Arts Festival! The acts, in order of performance are: TRP.P (Toronto, ON), TOBi (Toronto, ON), Caveboy (Montreal, QC) and Wilderado (Los Angeles, CA, USA). Toronto-based DJ Jayemkayem will be spinning in between sets.
Discovery is a major theme of Collective Arts Fest. Just as the festival is an opportunity to sample new beers and take in new art experiences, the music lineup crosses genres, to give attendees a mix of bands they know and new music they’ve yet to discover.

Born in Nigeria, 26 year old TOBi immigrated to Canada with his father at 8 years old. This initial culture shock made TOBi aware intimately of his physical presence and how he was perceived by others. Struggling with this he turned to music to express his thoughts and emotions. In 2016, he released his debut EP, FYi. By 2018, he linked up with Grammy-nominated producer duo Take a Daytrip for the buzzy jam “January December.” In 2019 TOBi went on to release his debut studio album, STILL which received high praises from media such as: i-D, BET, Billboard, Paper & L’Officiel. The album explored the multiple facets of masculinity and also the vulnerability he went through shortly after immigration. He continued the momentum performing an original song, “Beige” on COLORS, as well as having his single, “Ride” featured in the 2019 season of HBO’s Ballers. Not stopping anytime soon, TOBi kicked off the new decade with a “City Blues” remix featuring The Game.
Formed in the California mountains, but originally hailing from Tulsa, OK, Wilderado have been steadily building a passionate fan base and defining who they are since 2015. When they first came together, Max Rainer (lead vocals, guitar), Tyler Wimpee (guitar, vocals), Colton Dearing (bass, vocals) and Justin Kila (drums) spent a summer in Latigo Canyon, a secluded part of Malibu, with longtime Sufjan Stevens collaborator James McAlister, immersing themselves in writing and recording. Those songs went on to form early EP releases with tastemaker indie labels IAMSOUND and National Anthem, which garnered 35 million streams, but more crucially provided the backbone to years of touring.
TRP.P (pronounced “trippy”) is a Toronto band breaking barriers on the Hip-Hop/R&B scene. Composed of Truss (producer, singer/songwriter) and Phoenix Pagliacci (singer/songwriter), the dynamic duo began their collective artistry in the summer of 2017. In October of the same year, they released their self-titled debut EP. Since then, they have been unstoppable. TRP.P has made their mark in Toronto as a group to know. In 2018, NOWMagazine listed them among the list of Must See acts performing at Toronto Pride. Dubbing themselves “The Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth of R&B”, Truss and Phoenix have an undeniable chemistry that is both relatable and infectious. The two have performed across North America, opening for heavy hitters like Oakland songstress Kehlani and Baltimore soulbird Mumu Fresh. Their new EP, 2TRP.P, is set for release in September 2019.
Since releasing their debut EP in 2015, Caveboy has seen huge growth within Canada’s indie music scene. Their songs have charted among the Top 20 on CBC Music; they’ve played some super memorable shows at major festivals and conferences such as SXSW, Osheaga, Pride Toronto, Halifax Pop Explosion; they had some sweet syncs in The New Romantic, Orange is the New Black, Killjoys; we won the 2017 Allan Slaight Juno Master Class; and they’ve supported some of the best artists such as Japanese Breakfast, Tash Sultana, Tom Walker, Ria Mae, Cub Sport, and Wintersleep.
