This weekend, one of Toronto’s most beloved music festivals sets up shop at Fork York. Field Trip, now in its 4th year, is put together by Arts & Crafts and Live Nation, has featured everyone from Alabama Shakes to Broken Social Scene to Interpol to the Kills. This year’s lineup is another strong one, with quality headliners in The National and Robyn, and a whole host of great music just waiting to be discovered.

CONFRONT will be back in attendance at Field Trip this year, and we put together a quick list of some of our must-see picks for this weekend!


Holy Fuck

The band with the very controversial name is hitting the stage this weekend in support of their latest album, Congrats, which is their first since 2010’s Latin. On their first album in six years, the electronica band sounds fresher than ever, more immediate, and somehow simultaneously both more intricate and pop-influenced than ever before. Check ’em out on Saturday from 7:15-8:15 at the Fork York Stage.

 

 


Jazz Cartier
One of Toronto’s hottest success stories of late, Jazz Cartier should blow your socks off at Field Trip. He released his debut full-length, Marauding in Paradise, in April 2015 and earned a Polaris Music Prize shortlist nomination. The sophomore effort, Hotel Paranoia, was released in February 2016, and is absolutely blowing up. He plays on Saturday at 8:45-9:45 on the Fort York Stage.
