Since 2013, Field Trip has brought art, comedy, and music to Toronto’s Fort York and Garrison Common, standing tall as the kickoff of Canadian music festival season, and a summer highlight we look forward to every year. This year, the only thing that stood in the way of headliners The National, Robyn, of Montreal, and Santigold serving up guaranteed good times on two festival stages was the foreboding weather report. Electrical activity ended up throwing a wrench into Sunday’s plans, forcing an early evacuation of the Field Trip grounds. Organizers handled the setback as promptly and professionally as possible, and with a hope and a prayer hands emoji, a modified schedule resumed later that evening.
Read on for our reviews of Field Trip sets by Santigold, Holy Fuck, Jazz Cartier, Charlotte Day Wilson, and Robyn.
