TURF 2016

by

Jimmy Eat World at TURF
Toronto Urban Roots Fest (aka TURF) rounded out the end of a busy summer music festival season. From Sept 16-18 2016, the country/rock/folk/alternative festival took over Fort York. This year’s festival was a throwback to my teenage years. It brought up a lot of nostalgia with popular bands from the 90s and 2000s like The Barenaked Ladies, Jimmy Eat World, Matthew Good, and Death Cab for Cutie.

Although Saturday’s weather was a bit rainy, the clouds cleared out by the end of the evening, imparting a rainbow in it’s wake. There were many standout performances over the weekend — most notably Julien Baker, Whitehorse, Matthew Good, Julia Jacklin, and Death Cab for Cutie.

Relive Saturday in all its muddy glory below:
