Toronto’s favourite weekend music event and the unofficial kickoff to the city’s bustling summer festival season is back with its most diverse lineup yet, Saturday, June 4 and Sunday, June 5, 2016.
Four years into creating a world-class, boutique music event inside the gorgeous confines of the city’s Historic Fort York & Garrison Common, Field Trip is driven by the same themes of community and discovery. This year’s edition will again be programmed far beyond music to focus on highlighting Toronto’s best culinary offerings, as well as collaborative explorations on the themes of visual art, technology, fashion and more.
Saturday’s musical performances will be headlined by indie institution The National, JUNO-Award winning rockers July Talk, the amazing energy of Santigold, Australia’s Boy & Bear, rising Toronto rapper Jazz Cartier, the progressive noise of Holy Fuck, Nashville’s Bully and many more.
On Sunday, Swedish pop queen Robyn will close the festival, supported by Athens, Georgia eccentrics of Montreal, soul legend Charles Bradley, Brooklyn shoegazers DIIV, A&C luminary Jason Collett and a mixture of Canada’s best indie that includes Plants & Animals, Basia Bulat, Dear Rouge and more.
2016 also brings another exciting year of expansion of Field Trip’s ‘Day Camp’ programming, where children 12 years old and under are admitted for free to enjoy a wealth of youth-focused activities and performances. Over the coming months we’ll be making several announcements about the full run of incredible programming on the Day Camp stage, where music, education, discovery and charity come like nowhere else.
Past TD Day Camp performances have included: Kevin Drew & Andy Kim, Max Kerman (Arkells), Torquil Campbell (Stars), Sharon & Bram, Emilie Mover, Girls Rock Camp, Toronto Music Camp and many more.
As well, 2016 promises the return of the Laugh Barracks, our indoor comedy showcase featuring performances from some of Toronto’s newest and best loved joke tellers.
And there’s more… Field Trip 2016 will include numerous artists in residence, each helping to transform the Fort York & Garrison Common site into an unforgettable visual exploration. Adding to that experience will be Field Trip’s second custom virtual reality experience, inspired by one of the festival’s performers and free for all attendees to try.
Add all of this to the collection of amazing food and drink vendors fans have come to expect from Field Trip and you can be sure the many diverse tastes and culinary styles alive in our great city will be well represented.
“There are many amazing festival experiences available to people these days, but we take great pride in the intimacy and diversity of Field Trip, and the deep connection we have with the City of Toronto,” said Aaron Miller, Manager of Events at Arts & Crafts. “Field Trip guarantees something for all of us, and something new each and every year.”
