FIELD TRIP MUSIC AND ARTS FESTIVAL CANCELLED FOR SUMMER 2019

The organizers of Toronto's Field Trip Music & Arts Festival say the event is going on a temporary hiatus with the goal of returning in 2020, but the reason for the hiatus is still something of a mystery.

It was revealed on Wednesday that the annual Field Trip Music & Arts Festival is cancelled for the summer of 2019.

The popular alternative music festival was launched in 2013 by Canadian independent music label, Arts & Crafts, to celebrate their 10th anniversary.

Since then, it has run annually at Toronto’s historic Fort York grounds, welcoming iconic Canadian bands and artists such as Metric, The National, Broken Social Scene and July Talk, among many others.

An official statement was posted to the official Field Trip website in the morning. The organizers detailed that it was a “difficult decision” to make and that the festival “will go on hiatus with the goal of returning in 2020.”
