To commemorate this milestone, Toronto’s renowned independent music company presents AC10, a series of events, releases and collaborations in music, fashion, photography and literature highlighting a decade of creativity and community.
First to be unveiled is the Field Trip Music & Arts Festival, held in Toronto on Saturday, June 8 at Fort York and Garrison Common.
The inaugural one-day event will feature two stages curated entirely from Arts & Crafts’ diverse artist roster, co-headlined by a one-night-only return from hiatus for flagship collective Broken Social Scene and 11-time JUNO Award and 2012 Polaris Music Prize winner Feist. Lineup also includes Bloc Party, Timber Timbre, Hayden, Cold Specks, Ra Ra Riot, Trust, The Darcys, Jason Collett, Zeus, Gold & Youth, Still Life Still and more
“Field Trip was built around the themes of discovery and community. In addition to world-class musical performances, the festival will incorporate local art, gourmet food and unique elements of Toronto’s proud culture,” said Jeffrey Remedios, co-founder and president of Arts & Crafts. “Field Trip is a celebration – not just of Arts & Crafts’ 10-year anniversary and our artists – but of Toronto, of community and perhaps above all else, of the collaborative spirit.”
Field Trip will commence at 12 p.m. on Saturday, June 8 with music starting at 1 p.m. and wrapping at 11 p.m. Families welcome. Kids are free.
