With Saturday quickly approaching for the much anticipated Field Trip Music Festival, which will celebrate the 10th anniversary of Arts & Crafts, which has become a part of the life blood of Toronto and much of Canada’s music scene, Toronto is buzzing with excitement for the return of Broken Social Scene, who will be performing their critically acclaimed album You Forgot It In People it its entirety.
The inaugural one-day event will feature two stages curated entirely from Arts & Crafts’ diverse artist roster, co-headlined by a one-night-only return from hiatus for flagship collective Broken Social Scene and 11-time JUNO Award and 2012 Polaris Music Prize winner Feist.
Field Trip will commence at 12 p.m. on Saturday, June 8 with music starting at 1 p.m. and wrapping at 11 p.m.
“Field Trip was built around the themes of discovery and community. In addition to world-class musical performances, the festival will incorporate local art, gourmet food and unique elements of Toronto’s proud culture,” said A&C president Jeffrey Remedios in a statement. “Field Trip is a celebration — not just of Arts & Crafts’ 10-year anniversary and our artists — but of Toronto, of community and perhaps above all else, of the collaborative spirit.”
If you can’t make it to Osheaga this year, or if NXNE doesn’t satisfy you, Field Trip is the quintessential Canadian music festival.
