If you’re a singer, musician or dancer, this returning Brampton festival wants to see you perform.

Vibrant Brampton Festival, an annual event celebrating the city’s South Asian arts, culture and heritage, returns this summer (July 21-22) at Brampton’s Garden Square.

Part of the festival is the Vstar Talent Hunt, where performers are invited to show their stuff for a chance to win prizes and perform on the big stage.

Similar to last year, the competition will happen in a hybrid format: The first audition round will be done in a virtual format on June 14, 15, 28 and 29, followed by an in-person semi-final and final round on July 15 at the Cyril Clark auditorium in Brampton.

“Last year, we received over 100 entries, out of which the top 30 performed in the auditions rounds, finally coming down to 9 talents which emerged as winners,” says the team behind Vibrant Brampton Festival.


The festival organizers say the 2023 winners will have an even bigger platform to perform on, alongside the professional artists on the main stage of the festival.

The winners will also be given an opportunity to network with other professional artists and get access to mentorship, entrepreneurship and self-marketing.

Submissions for the talent hunt are now open.

This is Vibrant Brampton’s eighth year in the city and its fourth running the Vstar Talent Hunt.

Last year, the festival featured headlining performances from Bollywood composer and Indian pop and rock group Bombay Vikings former vocalist Neeraj Shridhar, as well as Punjabi Pop Singer from Jaz Dhami and Canadian Folk Bhangra Artist Geeta Zaildar.

The headlining performers at this year’s festival are expected to be announced closer to the date.
