Toronto’s downtown music and arts festival is celebrating five years this summer and today, Field Trip (held from Saturday June 3 to Sunday June 4) has unveiled an impressive lineup featuring Broken Social Scene, Phoenix, Feist, and more.
Field Trip has become the unofficial kick off to the city’s busy summer festival season and this year’s bill continues a tradition of curating a boutique music event inside the intimate confines of the city’s Historic Fort York & Garrison Common. Driven by a love of community and discovery, Field Trip 2017 welcomes a rich program of not only music, but family-friendly events, comedy and a taste of Toronto’s culinary scene. All of the music, food, drink and activities integrate with collaborative explorations on themes of visual art, technology, fashion and more.
Saturday June 2 will be headlined by Arts & Crafts’ own and Field Trip I headliner Broken Social Scene. BSS will be supported by indigenous electronic trio A Tribe Called Red, who released their latest effort We Are The Halluci Nation in 2016. Other highlights include Alaska rock band Portugal. The Man, and a rare appearance by California rappers The Pharcyde, celebrating 25 years since their debut Bizarre Ride II The Pharcyde.
On Sunday June 3, French act Phoenix will co-headline alongside Toronto’s Feist, who returns to Field Trip for the first time since 2013. Other Day 2 highlights feature the singular, jazz influenced sounds of BADBADNOTGOOD and Thundercat and Irish songwriter James Vincent McMorrow. As with every Field Trip, children under the age of 12 can attend for free.
Field Trip V also includes a full, to-be-announced lineup inside the Laugh Barracks, an indoor comedy showcase stage with performances from some of Toronto’s funniest. “Toronto is truly one of the world’s great homes to diversity and the intersection of creativity and community is alive in countless forms,” says Field Trip Co-Director Aaron Miller. “The last five years have been a steady reminder of the festival’s opportunity to bring people together. We take great pride in the intimacy and variety of Field Trip and a deep connection with the City of Toronto.”
“Field Trip holds a special place in the hearts of the many contributors who work on the festival every year,” adds Erik Hoffman, Live Nation’s Toronto president. “Celebrating its fifth edition, the festival’s lineup tips its hat to founding artists who graced our stage in Year One while highlighting some of this year’s most exciting new artists from around the planet. A true urban event, Field Trip has grown into one of Toronto’s flagship festivals and we couldn’t be more proud of it.”
