Field trip Concert - A whole Lotta Hipster Family Fun






As close to perfect as festivals get.” - Toronto Star
Toronto’s coolest music festival.” - Flare“It’s a family affair, and the audience and Toronto in general is a part of it.” - Exclaim!“The closest thing Toronto has to Coachella.” - Toronto Life“What is celebrated is the city’s thriving music scene and the city itself.” - Globe & Mail
We’ve already unveiled a 2015 lineup packed with surefire amazing performances from world class artists including Alabama Shakes, My Morning Jacket, The War On Drugs, Arkells, Father John Misty, De La Soul, Purity Ring and so many more. Sure, those alone are worth the price of admission, but anyone who’s attended Field Trip knows the event is an extension of the artistic community at large with a family vibe that’s solidified it as Toronto’s essential downtown community music and arts event.
Our annual love letter to Toronto recognizes music as the great passion play, but we aim to celebrate artistry, creativity and community in many forms. Here are a few of the ways Field Trip 2015 will create a unique, lasting impression for all music lovers and families that take part. Take a look at the insane amount of fun we’re going to have below or over on our official site. And get your tickets here, now.
THE FOOD
Few things are better than great food… and Toronto’s thriving culinary community will seriously shine at Field Trip 2015.
Our selection of vendors includes an amazing cross section of the city’s food pioneers, showcasing original creations that range artisanal sausages to maple beef-bacon donuts. There will truly be something for everyone’s taste - we’ll feature select kid-focused stations and numerous vegetarian and vegan options. We’ll have some kitchen celebs in the mix too, like Anthony Rose dishing out the finest in the VIP to Zane Caplansky’s Thunderin’ Thelma rolling on site. Bottom line: if the list here (and below) doesn’t get you salivating, something is wrong.
ART & DESIGN
In the warmth of early June, Historic Fort York & Garrison Common will come alive, transformed into a diverse and colourful retreat in the heart of the city thanks to installations from Heather Goodchild, Young Offenders, Golden Age Botanicals and several other emergent Toronto visual creators. Fans and families can explore the amazing green space and be immersed within Fort York like never before. We’ve also got a few surprises, it’s going to be amazing.
DAY CAMP
2015 means a bigger and better ‘Day Camp’, where we’ll present kids (who can come to the fest for free if they’re under 12) with an embarrassment of activity riches. We’re doubling down with intimate mini sets from Sharon & Bram, Girls Rock Camp and children’s sets from other Field Trip performers, all within ear shot of the popular bouncy castle, hula hoops, temporary tattoo stations, kids haircuts, ping pong tables and more. Day Camp is a huge element of what sets Field Trip apart… the only problem might be pulling the kids away to go and hear some music.
OCULUS RIFT VIRTUAL REALITY
This is a big one! Soar high above Fort York and defy your very reality inside this mind-blowing virtual experience. We’re thrilled to be able to offer Field Trippers a custom festival experience created just for our weekend and never before presented to the Canadian public.
LAUGH BARRACKS PRESENTED BY MAILCHIMP
Step inside this hilarious new addition to Field Trip and enjoy daily performances from two of Comedy Bar’s most popular shows, Laugh Sabbath and Chuckle Co. In between be sure to take in an annual favourite, the acclaimed Analogue Gallery Sound Image exhibition, showcasing this year’s best in Canadian music photography.
DISCOVERY ARTISTS 
It’s one of our pillars - sure we love bringing international favourites to TO, but introducing our patrons to new artists is also a huge part of our promise. As we did in 2014, we welcome four discovery artists - new additions to the lineup carefully picked and and ready to be revelations for the open-minded listener. These include Mali guitar mania of Songhoy Blues, the lofty folk of Andy Shauf, Vancouver shimmering pop quartet The Belle Game and Toronto R&B / jazz newcomers The Wayo. We’re also partnering with ManifestoRed Bull Sound Select and local all ages promoter Johnnyland to make sure the Toronto music community is represented at several levels. Prepare to find a new favourite.
SHOP IN STYLE 
We’re deeply committed to improving the Field Trip experience each year, and we’ve been listening. This year we’ll be opening up the first full Field Trip store on site (with Fort York Stage satellite), working with our artists and designers to create a hub where fans can browse an amazing selection of exclusive and premium Field Trip, A&C and performing artist merchandise as well as rare wares from close friends and collaborators across the grounds. There will also probably be a few artists dropping by…
