Field Trip will take place at Fort York Garrison, Toronto – a space that is becoming increasingly popular for summer concerts and festivals, including Riot Fest last September. Field Trip will commence at 12 p.m. on Saturday, 8 June with music starting at 1 p.m. and ending by 11p.m. Families are welcome, and kids go free.

Field Trip was built around the themes of discovery and community. In addition to world-class musical performances, the festival will incorporate local art, gourmet food and unique elements of Toronto’s proud culture,” said Jeffrey Remedios, co-founder and president of Arts & Crafts. “Field Trip is a celebration – not just of Arts & Crafts’ 10-year anniversary and our artists – but of Toronto, of community and perhaps above all else, of the collaborative spirit.”
