Field Trip is about so much more than just great, world-class music.
Food, art, comedy, family, fashion and a spirit of discovery are among our many inspirations, and each year’s Field Trip is dedicated to collaborative explorations of these themes. Here’s a look at a few of the amazing things you can expect at the Field Trip Fifth Anniversary.
As it has each and every year, Toronto’s thriving culinary community will shine at Field Trip 2017. Our selection of vendors includes an amazing cross section of the city’s fine food purveyors, showcasing original creations that include something for everyone. This year we are taking it a step further by giving you more of what you love and asking each of our vendors to offer at least 1 plant based menu offering. Check out all our food vendors and their menus HERE!
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 this year’s festival artists in residence. Past Field Trip installations have come courtesy of Heather Goodchild, Lido Pimiento, Justin Cozens, Young Offenders, SPAZZ, Golden Age Botanicals and many more. 2017 will bring a new crop of Toronto’s emergent visual creators to the Field Trip foreground including the sublime work of Rajni Perera which will be showcased throughout the grounds.. Fans and families will be able to explore the festival’s amazing green space and be immersed within the site like never before.
Field Trip was conceived as a family friendly event and every year we work hard to expand and refine our ‘Day Camp’ space, where we bring parents and kids (who can come to the fest for free if they’re under 12) together for a wide range of activity and intimate performances. This year’s Day Camp space will be our best one yet… a fully immersive experience with something for children of all ages. Check out the lineup HERE!
Oh we’re definitely bringing back the Laugh Barracks, the indoor comedy stage that features up and coming local comedians as well as a handful of the city’s more established funny people has become one of our most popular side shows. Check out the lineup HERE!
ANALOGUE GALLERY SOUND IMAGE EXHIBITION
Also housed inside the Fort’s historic barracks buildings is one of Field Trip’s longest standing fixtures, the Analogue Gallery Sound Image Exhibition, which showcases the best in Canadian music photography. 2017’s curation will also include some shots commemorating some of the best moments from all Field Trips past! See more about the Analogue Gallery Sound Image Exhibition HERE.
FIELD TRIP MARKETPLACE
Working with our artists, designers and partners of the festival, the Field Trip Marketplace will be a hub where fans can browse an amazing selection of exclusive and premium merchandise as well as rare wares from close friends and collaborators.
MESS HALL WITH IVY KNIGHT
A Field Trip favourite, Mess Hall will be back this year with more fun and games for the entire family to enjoy! Join our host Ivy Knight for a day of laughing, cheering and playing with food. Set up to run in between musical acts, Mess Hall is your one stop during the break with fun food programming for kids and adults.
