Toronto Urban Roots Festival has descended upon Fort York’s integral grounds once more, the city’s staple sign-off to summer festivals. With this years lineup boasting headlining acts courtesy of James Bay, Death Cab for Cutie, and Ween, as well as incredible sets from the likes of Julien Baker, Lush, Guided By Voices, Modern Baseball, The Hives, The New Pornographers and more, it was safe to say that TURF 2016 would have no problem drawing crowds.
Check out our photo gallery of some exemplary acts from Friday September 16, the first day of the festival, below. All photos by Benjamin Bush. Visit TURF’s website for more information on the festival including set times, tickets, and more.
