TORONTO, July 7 /CNW/ - IRIE Music Festival is pleased to announce TD Canada Trust is returning as title sponsor for the 2009 TD Canada Trust IRIE Music Festival, a unifying celebration of Toronto's diversity designed to promote a greater understanding between the many cultures and traditions of our world class city. "The IRIE Music Festival has become an integral part of the summer experience and we're excited to again be partnering with TD Canada Trust," said Phil Vassell, executive director, Toronto Urban Music Festival which produces the TD Canada Trust IRIE Music Festival.
