FESTIVAL REVIEW: Field Trip Arts & Music Festival 2015 [Day 1]

Arts & Crafts Field Trip Arts & Music Festival 2015 kicked off day one with sunny skies and warm weather. Though the second day called for rain, it was still a distant thought.

 

The Wayo eased the day in with some saxophone-infused jams on the main Field Trip stage. Over on the Fort York stage, Andy Shauf turned a green field into an intimate space with his soothing sounds.

Sharon and Bram were a definite highlight to the day and their much-anticipated performance an audience of all ages. Those who grew up watching Sharon, Lois, and Bram brought their children and those who grew up with Skinnamarink TV closed the age gap to bring together generations of nostalgia.

Calvin Love played a fantastic set while moving around on stage in a scruffy suit. He is one to watch – his composure is effortless and if we’re really being honest, he’s truly a rockstar.

De La Soul rocked the crowd on the Field Trip stage, even getting the security guards to put their hands up during their act. They had the most fun set of the day and had the crowd nodding their heads in unison.

Arkells have come a long way – they’re exponentially rising as indie-alternative rock gods and they know this. The way frontman Max Kerman controlled the crowd was impressive and they had everyone singing along to radio hit “Leather Jacket.”

 

Purity Ring closed the Fort York stage while Alabama Shakes ended day one on the Field Trip stage. Purity Ring electrified and captivated with their intense light show and vocalist Megan James’ vocals soared through the audience in the dark.

 

Brittany Howard radiated and dazzled Field Trippers with her jaw-dropping, soulful performance as soon as she let a peep out. There couldn’t have been a better way to end day one than with Alabama Shakes.
