Statement From Sandz Caribbean Music Festival

The organizers of SANDZ Toronto would like to take this opportunity to address and put to rest any rumours that may be circulating in regards to the incident that took place at the Sandz Caribbean Music Festival in Toronto this past Sunday. As many of you may have seen on social media, a gentleman was injured due to an act of violence that had no place in our event. He sustained injuries from an altercation with another patron and was taken to the hospital for treatment.

STATEMENT From Sandz Caribbean Music Festival

It has been confirmed by Toronto Police spokesperson, David Hopkins that there were no gunshots fired at the event and no one was injured due to gun violence. Security & Safety of our patrons is a primary focus at all our worldwide events, as all the directors of Sandz Caribbean Music Festival ensures the primary protection of our supporters who continue to make Sandz a success worldwide.

There were minor injuries reported as a result of the crowd dispersing, people running and broken glass. Significant focus has been placed on ensuring that all individuals with injuries receive the medical attention needed.

Sandz Toronto was planned to be an unforgettable and positive experience. It’s very unfortunate that the selfish and senseless altercation between a few patrons jeopardized the safety and well-being of many.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding. We accept all feedback and will continue to work assiduously in ensuring all our events provide a safe and fun environment for our patrons.
