Toronto is in the big leagues when it comes to spitting out music talent to world. Marcus Graham happens to be a person that recognizes and celebrates the city’s talent before the world does. Utopia Music Festival is an annual event that he created to bring together Toronto’s premier and emerging artists in one room for a series of performances. It’s a chance for people to discover new talent in their own city. On the heels of the third season which goes down at the Mod Club Theatre in Toronto on June 1st, we had a conversation with Marcus Graham about the festival’s early beginnings, the challenges of putting together a festival and its future.
