Summer time means music festival time! This year sees Field Trip kick off the festivities with a weekend full of good tunes, good food and good times.

Here’s the bands we are most excited to see

Yeah Yeah Yeahs

No doubt the main eventer for this festival. Yeah Yeah Yeahs are returning to touring after a brief hiatus. Their last show at Echo Beach was amazing and there is no doubt in my mind that the trio will blow the proverbial roof off the place on Sunday. Surely by now, most people have read the NY music scene book Meet Me in the Bathroom and just hearing the story of the trio will lend a bit extra to the show. But let’s be real, we are all here to hear these songs live again

- Date with the Night
– Maps
– Y-Control
– Gold Lion
– Cheated Hearts
– Heads Will Roll
– Zero

It gonna be good.

Alvvays

I don’t know how they did it, but Alvvays released a second record that was even better then their first. Their songs are made for summertime festivals and this weekend will see that realized.

Japandroids

Speaking of bands with festival ready songs, the hard rockin duo that make up Japandroids are ready to bring their anthemic rock songs to the crowd at Fort York. Don’t miss the beginning of the set, as they seem to like starting with Near to the Wild Heart of Life

Allie X

Those who have been around the Toronto music scene have seen many different interpretations of Allie X and her music. A few years ago, she moved to LA I think, and developed the latest reinvention and it’s great. We’ll get a heavy dose of slick pop music to bop our heads to.

NoName

Noname gain famed a few years ago as part of Chance the Rapper’s track Lost but has since delivered a stellar debut album named Telefone. I saw her last year at SXSW and she put on a lovely show that will play as a nice chill contrast to whatever the heck is going on at the Metric stage.

These are some of the artists we are excited to see! See you there
