Toronto-based record label Arts & Crafts present their 2015 Field Trip music festival lineup. Rooted in the heart of downtown Toronto, within the gorgeous confines of the city’s Historic Fort York & Garrison Common, the two day music and arts event will take place on Saturday, June 6 and Sunday, June 7.
One of the real charms of Field Trip is its dedication and commitment to the community as well as discovery, and this year’s edition will again be programmed beyond music to focus on highlighting Toronto’s best culinary offerings, as well as collaborative explorations on the themes of food, drink, art, photography, technology, fashion and more.
Field Trip 2015 will be headlined by Alabama Shakes and My Morning Jacket, with other highlights from the carefully curated mixture of international and domestic talent including UK pop sensation Marina & The Diamonds, indie favourites The War On Drugs and Father John Misty, the dark synths of Purity Ring, the alluring R&B of Rhye, hip hop hall of famers De La Soul, the feel good soul of Lee Fields & The Expressions, UK psych upstarts Temples, and many more. One of them being our personal favourites, Fake Art Records own hip-hop/R&B vocalist Brendan Philip and up and coming Mississauga rapper/producer Keita Juma.
Oh and for all the young at heart folks out their, Field Trip will also feature some performances from Toronto children’s music pioneers Sharon & Bram and From Jamaica To Toronto. Cool right? Well, hopefully. Either way, if you actually have kids, they will be thrilled, and if not, you can toss them into the Field Trip ‘Day Camp’ programming, where children under 12-years-of-age are admitted for free to enjoy a wealth of youth-focused activities and performances.
You definitely have to give it up to Field Trip, they are dedicated to making sure that their festival experience is like no other in the city. Get excited and start allocating your funds because tickets go on sale this Friday, February 6 at 10am here.
