Who is ready for Field Trip this weekend? I am!
If you enjoyed last year’s one day party – this year’s Field Trip two day jam is going to kill it. With the likes of the Interpol, The Kills, Chvrches, Constantines and Broken Social Scene; Arts & Crafts (the music label) are set to musically satiate you for the summer.
Last year the brews and food were off the hook and this year promises more of the same. Come hungry and parched. I recommend Buster’s Seacove, Gourmet Gringos and Feisty Jack. The beer – are we fussy? There will be beer and Summertime Lemonade, Detour Coffee, Augie’s Ice Pops, Boreal Gelato and Penny Lou Sweets to get lost in.
The online global marketplace of handmade and vintage goods, Etsy will pop-up at Field Trip again this year with a marketplace featuring six Toronto-based sellers.
Shop festival fashion such as southwestern inspired leather handbags from Grace Designs, whimsical halo floral crowns from Jordan de Ruiter, and stylish deadstock plus one-of-a-kind vintage sunglasses from Meister Shades. The vendor booth will also feature Team Art colouring books for grown-ups, including colour-in-the-lines Paul Rudd and John Hamm, as well as Fitzy’s leather bowties and necklaces and jewelry from Foxy Originals.
Ranging from art to furniture to vintage fashion, and everything in between, Etsy.com boasts over 25 million items listed on 1 million active shops from around the world. It is a great place to discover unique and edgy finds, and has a fantastic shop local search option that promotes supporting your local creative community.
So indeed come with some dollars in your purse, a decent sun hat, sunscreen and ready to rock. Field Trip is going to be where it’s at this summer in Toronto. See you there!
