Just beginning in 2013, Field Trip is back for a third year! It began as a celebration of “Arts and Crafts” 10th anniversary, until it expanded in 2014 to a two day arts and music festival. This year, it will take place on Saturday June 6th-Sunday June 7th.
It is located in Downtown Toronto at the Historic Fort York and Garrison Common. The actual event is at the front of Bathurst Street.
This year’s lineup is absolutely incredible. At some festivals, sometimes you may find that one day is significantly better than another in terms of lineup however, you will not find this with Field Trip’s 2015 lineup! Both days are equally as amazing with artists such as Arkells, Rhye, The War on Drugs, Marina & The Diamonds, and way more. Take a look.
