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. The lineup also includes Bloc Party, Timber Timbre, Hayden, Cold Specks, Ra Ra Riot, Trust, The Darcys, Jason Collett, Zeus, Gold & Youth, and Still Life Still.
“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 Jeffrey Remedios, co-founder and president of Arts & Crafts. “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.”
