20 rainy memories of Toronto's newest outdoor festival

Posted by Roger Cullman / July 9, 2013

Toronto Urban Roots FestivalAs the weather hinted at big things to come, Lee's Palace co-owner Jeff Cohen kicked off something big of his own this weekend: the inaugural edition of the Toronto Urban Roots Festival, more succinctly known as TURF, held from Thursday through Sunday at the Fort York Garrison Commons. Fans got wet, shoes got muddy, but complaints were drowned (heh, heh) out by fans overjoyed to see the likes of Belle and Sebastian, Yo La Tengo, and She & Him. Oh, and there were baby bunnies!

Check out this slideshow for a visual recap of the waterlogged festival.

Why do the photos look cut off? So far, these slideshows are less than impressive and I don't think the photographers would appreciate the way you crop the photos to fit within the frame....

Hi PL, unfortunately that's a kink we're still working through with our slideshows. For now, if you decrease the width of your browser size a bit you'll be able to see the full photo without the crop.
