The Field Trip Music and Arts Festival is on its way back to take over the lawns of Fort York and Garrison Common for one day only on Saturday, July 9th, 2022.
For a single day, Field Trip will be welcoming a host of diverse performers covering a wide range of different genres. Accompanying the live music will be food trucks serving great local food and a music photography exhibit brought to you by the Analogue Gallery.
This lineup showcases so much of Canada’s greatest music, calling special attention to the featured Indigenous artists who will be bringing their powerful sounds to the festival. The Halluci Nation, for one, is an electronic music duo that incorporates elements of First Nations music with vocal chanting and drumming. In addition to The Halluci Nation, Ombiigizi, a unique indie rock music collaboration between two Anishnaabe artists is going to be kicking off the day with their set. Not only do these groups hold so much cultural importance, but they also put on such utterly exciting kick-ass shows! Neither one of these artists are lacklustre in their performances and would encourage anybody to attend their sets.
After two years apart, Field Trip will be an aid in mending our time apart due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Kevin Drew, a co-founder of Arts & Crafts, Field Trip, and member of Broken Social Scene, who’ve played the festival several times since its launch, said
“I think live music is going to play a major part in helping people recover from the last few years. There’s nothing more incredible than being in a crowd, feeling the pumping thunder of a band, and you all share this common feeling of – they speak to me, I identify with this, I understand this.”
Hi! My name is Maddie and I’m a lover of art and all things rock n’ roll based in Toronto, Canada. I am an artist, writer, photographer, and filmmaker, happily spending my time involved and working hard at each of my passions. When I’m not creating art or films for myself, I’m either listening to music or at local shows using my camera to document the many amazing Toronto artists playing music for crowds of all sizes. I am lucky to spend time shooting, creating videos and taking photos for so many good people playing good Canadian music
