SPILL NEWS: FIELD TRIP ANNOUNCES FULL PROGRAMMING
INCLUDING FAMILY-FRIENDLY DAY CAMP AND COMEDY
Arts & Crafts today announced the full programming lineup for the 2016 Field Trip Music & Arts Festival on Saturday, June 4 and Sunday, June 5 at Fort York and Garrison Common. With something for everyone, schedule highlights include expanded family-friendly Day Camp featuring artists from the official lineup partaking in intimate sing-a-longs, comedians raising the roof on the Laugh Barracks indoor stage and a curated collection of the city’s best and brightest bespoke craft vendors.
This year’s Field Trip welcomes a diverse range of over 20 top food vendors, with the return of Toronto food writer and curator Ivy Knight hosting The Mess Hall for a day of laughing, cheering and playing with food. Other community programming includes the Analogue Gallery Sound Image Exhibition showcasing the best in Canadian music photography; art and design exhibit by Toronto’s emergent visual creators; and a marketplace of local vendors selling rare wares.
“The range of interactive community-driven programming is one of the things that makes the Field Trip festival experience so unique – one of the things we’re very proud of,” says Arts & Crafts programming director, Aaron Miller. “A major focus for 2016 was upping the family-friendly activities and really making sure there is something for everyone to enjoy. On top of all the amazing musicians we have coming this year, think of Field Trip as a choose your own adventure celebration of summer.”
Field Trip Music & Arts Festival received three CMW Live Industry Awards nominations in 2016, for New Kid On The Block (Best New Festival), Best Family Program at a Festival and Medium Festival of the Year. This year’s music lineup features headliners The National and Robyn, as well as local favourites July Talk, Basia Bulat, Jazz Cartier and more.
