Published Feb 18, 2014Plans have been announced for the second annual Field Trip Music & Arts Festival this summer, with organizers revealing today (February 18) that the Toronto event will be headlined by Broken Social Scene and Interpol.
The event takes place June 7 and 8 at Toronto's Fort York and Garrison Common, with A&C indie rock vets Broken Social Scene taking top billing at the fest. This will be the collective's only show of the year.
While the inaugural edition highlighted the 10th anniversary of the Arts & Crafts label, this year organizers are fleshing out the focus by adding international talent like New York post-punks Interpol, the Kills, Scottish trio CHVRCHES, Washed Out and more.
The Canadian element includes a performance from the recently reformed Constantines and a collaborative set from Gord Downie and the Sadies. Plus, the fest will feature Shad, A Tribe Called Red, supergroup Hydra (comprising AroarA, Feist and Snowblink), Fucked Up, Badbadnotgood, Kevin Drew, Do Make Say Think, Austra, the Darcys and more.
A limited amount of pre-sale two-day passes go on sale tomorrow (February 19) for $99.50, but after those are gone, you can grab a standard pass for $125 come Friday (February 21). VIP passes will run you $200, while $75 single tickets will go on sale at a later date. If you're 12 or under, we've got some good news for you: you're getting in for free.
