TURF Toronto lineup

TURF releases initial 2016 festival lineup

The Toronto Urban Roots Festival (TURF) returns to Fort York from September 16 to 18 bringing with it a predictably stellar lineup. This year's headliners are James Bay and Death Cab for Cutie as well as a mystery band/artist that TURF has yet to announce.

Unlike many similar events in-and-around the GTA, TURF is usually laid-back. And despite rainy weather, last year's festival was no exception.

Along with the headliners, the lineup includes Barenaked Ladies, Dropkick Murphys, Explosions in the Sky, Matthew Good and the Sheepdogs. TURF will add an additional 19 artists to the roster.
