Field Trip is always a highlight of the summer festival season. This 2018 edition was extra special. There were so many of my favourite acts that I was either seeing for the first time or was seeing put on some amazing performances. This was my first time seeing Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Damian 'Jr. Gong' Marley, Bahamas, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, Haerts, Allan Rayman and more. I experienced great performances from bands I'd already seen before including Metric, Japandroids, Partner, Dizzy and Ellevator.

There were also a number of new discoveries for me; artists I wasn't familiar with going in that I walked away a fan of. These included Middle Kids, Allie X, Liza Anne, Jacob Banks, Pierre Kwenders and Charlotte Cardin. This is absolutely one of my favourite things about music festivals; discovering great new artists.

Please click through on the links below to check out photos of each artist, my thoughts on each performance and music from each artist.

I've loved Yeah Yeah Yeahs for a long time. Probably since I first heard tunes from Fever to Tell. I seem to have a memory of a video of a rather unhinged daylight performance by the band that had me captivated.

For whatever reason, I've never seen the band live before. So I was looking forward to Field Trip to not only get to see and hear the band live, but also to get to photograph these legends of the alternative music genre.

Well, as I'm fond of saying, they did not disappoint. They played amazing tunes from across their catalogue and sounded amazing doing it. Now I'm down to looking forward to seeing the band at Osheaga.

Here are my favourites from their killer set.

"Gold Lion"

"Zero"

"Sacrilege"

"Maps"

"Y Control"

"Heads Will Roll"

"Cheated Hearts"

"Date With The Night"

Allan Rayman roamed the Field Trip stage like a modern-day Jim Morrison. Or, at least, how I would imagine a modern-day Jim Morrison would roam a stage in 2018.

Anyway.

Allan Rayman exudes presence and magnetism. All eyes just followed him as he danced and sang. His music is danceable, and soulful, and catchy. Taken together, there's quite a performance package in an Allan Rayman show.

Give him a listen:

"Word of Mouth"

"Verona's Obsession"

"Go My Way"

"The Cage"

I've seen and photographed Alvvays many times over the years. In my early days of concert photography, they seemed to be at a number of the same shows as I was.

And the indie pop darlings were at Field Trip, too. They put on a crowd-pleasing set of tunes from across their self-titled debut and Antisocialites.

Some tunes:

"Adult Diversion"

"In Undertow"

"Archie, Marry Me"

"Dreams Tonight"

"Next of Kin"

Providence, Rhode Island's Deer Tick put on a show of great rock and roots-rock tunes for the Field Trip crowd. I caught the band for the first time back in 2014 at TURF. Check out those photos, and my thoughts on that show here.

Check out a bunch of tunes from their solid setlist.

"Don't Hurt"

"The Dream's In The Ditch"

"Wants/Needs"

"Hope is Big"

"Card House"

"Jumpstarting"
