Big news Toronto, Field Trip Music & Arts Festival will return to Fort York and Garrison Common on Saturday, July 9th for a full day of live music, art, and local cuisine.
Originally launched as a part of record label Arts & Crafts’ 10th-anniversary celebrations in 2013 the festival has quickly become a people favourite. The kind of festival you can come with your family to and enjoy a wide range of bands and performers across a mix of genres, a contrast to the city’s many electronic festivals.
“This is the perfect time for Field Trip to return. At its core, Field Trip has always been about community and we need to reconnect with our communities now more than ever,” commented Kieran Roy, President of Arts & Crafts, co-founder of the festival in a press release. “We can’t wait to welcome people back to Field Trip to celebrate, be together again, discover their favourite new band, see their kids hula hoop, and be reminded of all the things we love about our city and about being with others.”
For this instalment of the festival, there will be two stages, Garrison Common and Fort York. The shared lineup will showcase artists such as Haviah Mighty, Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats, Peach Pit, Kurt Vile and the Violators, Lucy Dacus, The Halluci Nation, Valley, Busty and the Bass, The Rheostatics, The Rural Alberta Advantage, Daisy the Great, Pierre Kwenders, Georgia Harmer and Ombiigizi.
