Concert Takes Place, Tory Lanez & Others Perform

The Eyeopener January 18, 2019

The Ryerson Students’ Union hosted Loud Fest at Rebel nightclub on Jan. 19. Performances included Tory Lanez, Pressa, Jordan Solomon, Ramriddlz and Rajan with DJ Databass hyping the crowd in between acts.

There is $470,000 budgeted for the concert, according to the RSU’s 2018-19 budget. “All I’m going to say is that we’re going to be under budget, which is what I’m very happy about,” Ganesh said. (https://theeyeopener.com/2019/01/tory-lanez-to-headline-rsus-loud-festival/)

Concert Pushed to January

The Eyeopener October 16, 2018

The LitFest concert is projected to take place between Jan. 18 and 24, Ganesh said. The event, however, has been pushed back four months since the RSU has been “a little bit under-prepared,” Ganesh said.

“It’s not a concert that we’re doing, we’re not responsible for the operations, or the management or the finances,” said Ganesh. “This concert was always supposed to happen, we just bulk-purchased like 85 per cent of the tickets.”

Campaign Promise

Eyeopener May 01, 2018

a staple event like a concert is subsequently a great opportunity. A grand event never fails to energizes the participants as well as the greater community of Toronto which we are part of. I remember being a high school student hearing the amazing stories of the great artists that came to Ryerson. I want to bring this energy back into the campus once again. Ryerson is one of if not the largest commuter schools in Canada. By providing an immersive experience whereby students can come together in fellowship with each other under the unifying power of music, we will make memories which our fellow students will cherish long after they graduate and flourish
