Field Trip 2015 builds up Toronto summer fest mania
Hark, frigid Peter Pans and Wendys of Toronto, your toes curled all the way upwards in your elfin boots and your bangs frosted with ice: Arts & Crafts' indie Field Trip Festival will be warming your bodies with mud, song, and bouncy castles in a few short months, and today's line up announcement will have you salivating into your fuzzy plaid scarves. Try to peel the fabric off gently after it freezes to your lip.
Predictable slot-fillers include Polaris nominees Purity Ring, plus Calvin Love, Absolutely Free, Dan Mangan + Blacksmith, Hayden, Young Empires, and the Arkells. Then there's Marina & the Diamonds, Alabama Shakes, The War on Drugs, Rhye, Father John Misty, and My Morning Jacket, plus less expected acts like De La Soul, Kieta Juma & Brendan Philip, and Jacques Green. And Sharon & Bram.
Notably absent are Broken Social Scene - maybe they're worried that BSS tribute set at Wavelength 15 will outdo them - or they're busy. You'll have Kevin Drew & Andy Kim though. See the full line up here, and live last year's memories in our photo gallery.
Field Trip 2015 will bring the hugs back to Fort York Garrison Common June 6-7. Passes go on sale Friday, February 6th but starting tomorrow (February 5th) you can get in on an exclusive pre-sale only available via this link. Buy your passes 24 hours before the general public by using the password blogTO (not case-sensitive). Enjoy!
