Pack your blankets, flasks and one hitters because this weekend kicks off the 3rd annual Field Trip festival at Toronto’s historical Fort York Commons. And can we just say, no other festival uses the grounds as efficiently as the folks at Arts and Crafts. You can tell every details is finely curated to not only feel and support Toronto, but also to be as convenient as possible. So, thanks for the effort guys.
Day one packed a punch with not only a stellar line up, but also a fair bit of sunshine. We kicked things off with legendary hip hop trio De La Soul, who proved that even a quarter century later they still know how to have a blast. Adam Granduciel and his War On Drugs jammed through a set which bounced back and forth between Slave Ambient and Lost in a Dream, while Max from The Arkells (admiringly hopped up on cold brew) brought the energy. But Britney and her Alabama Shakes proved that they deserved the headlining spot, putting on probably one of the strongest sets we’ve seen. period.
Check out our photos from day 1 below and stay tuned for day 2 coverage tomorrow!
