Over the past weekend, I had the pleasure of experiencing the first ever Field Trip Festival, held in Toronto. The festival was a celebration of Canadian label Arts & Crafts’ 10-year anniversary, featuring amazing acts like Broken Social Scene, Feist, Stars, Bloc Party and Ra Ra Riot, all of whom got their start on the indie label.

The festival, like the label’s name would suggest, was a meld of art, music and delicious local food. Food trucks and vendors lined the grounds, offering up everything from meatballs to vegan paella. Throughout the day, an amazing plywood-based art installation was being built by artist LI-HILL, which was then lit up at night for a magical effect.

And then, of course, there was the music. Broken Social Scene played their classic album You Forgot It In People from start to finish, making for an electric show. The crowd was vocal in their appreciation of the band, singing along to every word. Earlier in the night, Feist also gave a great performance, playing songs off her last album Metals and doing inspired remixes of some of her classic songs like Mushaboom, My Moon My Man and 1234.

At night, string lights were hung carefully in the trees that lit up oh-so-beautifully to create a dreamlike appearance. The overall atmosphere of the festival was casual and inviting; almost like you were just listening to some great tunes in your friend’s backyard.  This was definitely one of my favourite festivals I’ve ever taken part of and already can’t wait for next year’s installment!
