Kaytranada Announces North American Tour Dates

By Kerry Doole

Grammy-winning Montreal producer Kaytranada has just announced an extensive North American tour, beginning on Sept. 4 (Seattle’s Day In Day Out fest) and continuing into Dec., closing out at new Toronto venue History on Dec. 30. He also plays Montreal on Oct. 8 (Piknic Electronik), and Vancouver’s PNE Forum on Nov. 13. Tickets for the shows go on sale tomorrow (Aug. 13) here. Supporting acts are yet to be announced.

This will be Kaytranada's first tour since the 2020 release of an instrumental version of his 2019 Polaris-nominated and Grammy-winning album Bubba. The original version of Bubba featured contributions from a star-studded guest list, including Kali Uchis, Mick Jenkins, Masego, Estelle, Charlotte Day Wilson, GoldLink, Tinashe and Pharrell Williams. That album landed at No. 1 on the Billboard Electronic Albums chart and No. 3 on the  R&B Albums chart.


Earlier in 2021, Kaytranada won two Grammys -  for Best Dance Recording for 10%, feat. Kali Uchis, and Best Dance/Electronic Album, for Bubba.

He won the 2016 Polaris Music Prize for the album 99.9%.
