For the first time ever we are giving you more Blocko, and going later than ever before!
There are so many amazing artists in Toronto, too many to book on one day, so we asked for more time!
Blockorama After Dark is our chance to highlight more artists, get sexier, dance later and close out the biggest club in town at Wellesley Parking Lot.
Are you ready?
