I was pretty excited when I heard that Field Trip was happening again this summer, along with the stunning lineup they’ve put together for this year. It was amazing to see IMF faves Half Moon Run, Lord Huron, Kevin Drew, The Darcys, Broken Social Scene, Constantines, CHVRCHES, Washed Out and Lowell all included in the 2 day festival at Toronto’s Fork York.
My heart absolutely sank when I realized what weekend this show was happening. The June 7th-8th weekend is again not only Field Trip, but the same weekend for the Ride To Conquer Cancer. Like last year, I’ve committed to riding 200+kms from Toronto to Hamilton, then Hamilton to Niagara for Cancer research. And I’ve done the math, there’s really no way for me to do both of these events that weekend.
If I can’t go to Field Trip, I might as well get some of you guys in. Here’s how.
Care of Arts & Crafts, I’ve got one pair of weekend passes to give away to one lucky winner. There is only one way to enter. Email me at chris AT indiemusicfilter.com with “FIELD TRIP” in the subject line with your full name in the body. Deadline is MONDAY, JUNE 2ND at NOON (EST). I’ll notify the winner that day.
Oh, and if you’d like to sponsor me in my ride, you can donate here.
About Field Trip:
Field Trip began in 2013 as a celebration of Arts & Crafts’ 10th anniversary, but in their second year their sights are squarely on establishing it as a world-class, two-day boutique music and arts festival situated in the heart of downtown Toronto. The 2014 edition will unfold across two days, programmed far beyond music to focus on highlighting the community’s best culinary offerings, as well as collaborative explorations on the themes of art, photography, technology, fashion and more.
