Festival season is so close we can almost hear the music and feel the sun on our skin. But while the winter still has us shivering and shaking, Field Trip has announced a lineup for the 2017 festival that will melt the ice in your hearts.
Featuring headliners Broken Social Scene, Phoenix, and Feist, the festival has packed a diverse mix of music for all festival attendees to appreciate. Other artists appearing on the lineup include A Tribe Called Red, BADBADNOTGOOD, Timber Timbre, Hannah Georgas, Jaunt, Royal Canoe, and more!
Alongside the music, the festival has programmed a number of activities to keep you busy on your weekend long field trip. The festival grounds at Fort York & Garrison Common will come alive with eye-catching art installations created by the festival’s artists in residence.
While parents admire the art, kids can play to their heart’s desire in the family friendly Day Camp space, which includes a variety of fun activities and kid-friendly performances. Past Day Camp performers include Sharon & Bram, Torquil Campbell (Stars), Kevin Drew & Andy Kim, Max Kerman (Arkells), Girls Rock Camp, Toronto Music Camp, and many more. Kids under the age of 12 can enjoy the festival for free!
This year, the festival will be bringing back the Laugh Barracks, the indoor comedy stage that features local comedians that are sure to have you laughing out of your seat. Looking for a more interactive experience? Mess Hall will be back this year with with fun games and activities for everyone to enjoy!

I’ve been involved in music my whole life and have developed a passion for helping out or working in the industry any way I can. I’m interested in helping talented artists gain the recognition they deserve in this crazy business. I am currently studying Communication Studies at York University in Toronto, and working at a local theatre doing marketing and communications, as well as helping out a local festival called Rock the Coliseum. Indie, alt-rock/pop, and metal are my favourites but I’m open to all music genres! If I’m not at a show, I’m doing yoga, grabbing coffee, or looking for some craft beer.
