Bollywood Monster Mashup (BMM), the largest South Asian festival in Canada, is known for bringing never before seen cultural fusion acts to the GTA. The festival takes over not one, but two stages at Mississauga Celebration Square on Saturday July 23rd for free, family-friendly fun. Bollywood Monster Mashup is proud to announce Culture Shock Toronto and Bollywood Monster Orchestra: Symphony Nights, which will perform exclusive acts created specifically for the festival.
