Field Trip 2017: Day 2 - Concert Photos

Another Field Trip has come to an end and what an amazing festival it was. These are my photos from Day 2. Click here to check out my pics from Day 1.

Phoenix brought their perfectly crafted and studio-quality sound to the main stage to headline the festival. They mixed in some brand new tunes along with their classics.

Feist was my main attraction for Sunday. She and the band played lots of songs from her new album Pleasure. Besides the new tunes, highlights for me included a solo acoustic "Mushaboom", along with "How Come You Never Go There", "My Moon My Man", "Sealion", "I Feel It All and "1234".

Badbadnotgood do what they do better than anyone; bring jazz to an indie rock festival.

Thundercat brought us all on his bass-led jazz odyssey.

James Vincent McMorrow and his band played us his emotive and soulful tunes.

Timber Timbre don't want photos of them playing their dark adventurous songs.

Hannah Georgas performed beautiful tunes from a fan of the fest who was honoured to be on stage for this one.

LP is that artist that most people proclaimed as a huge star in the making that we shouldn't miss. Well, she and the band lived up to the hype did not disappoint. LP plays solid, well-crafted rock that allows her voice and message to take centre stage. She attracted a really big side stage crowd.

I don't even know what to call the music that the duo called Tennyson produces. It's got tons of 70s rock and yacht rock sonic touchpoints with some 80s and 90s fusion thrown in, but the jam-heavy grooves and overall vibe is truly original. I loved listening to this cool set as the sun shone and the puddles tried to dry up.

Tobi entertained with a set that varied from chill hip-hop vibes to full on dance jams.

Nefe and her band played roots/bluesey soulful rock tunes with good grooves and emotional ballads.

Jaunt got things started with mellow sounds with big choruses and guitars.

Field Trip 2017: Day 1 - Concert Photos

Another Field Trip has come to an end and what an amazing festival it was. These are my photos from Day 1. Click here to check out my pics from Day 2.

Broken Social Scene headlined the first day of this year's Field Trip with an awesome set featuring so many of my favourites, "Cause=Time", "7/4 Shoreline", "Ibi Dreams Of Pavement (A Better Day)", "Superconnected" and set closer "KC Accidental". Of course, the stage was littered with special guests including Feist, Emily Haines, Torquil Campbell, Amy Millan, and James Shaw. Always a heartwarming, uplifting and joyful experience!

I love the music of Cloud Nothings so I loved hearing a bit of their set including "I'm Not Part of Me".

Portugal. The Man started off with some of "For Whom the Bell Tolls" and continued with a heavier live sound than I would have expected. They successfully rode the line of danceable and rock and delivered a very impressive set.

Tei Shi brought an energetic set of danceable fun tunes.

Matt Mays is a definite favourite with his hard rocking power pop tunes. I love his music, especially hits like "Indio" and "Take It On Faith".

Royal Canoe delivered their unique and intricate soundscapes.

Joseph played high energy, countrified and slide guitar infused tunes highlighting the vocal melodic and harmonious talents of the three sisters/singers from Portland Oregon.

Bernice played soothing and ethereal tunes.

Overcoats had great harmonies and strong melodies.

Yoke Lore have a big sound and tunes with big catchy choruses perfect for shouting along.

Harrison dealt out his cool vibes and Walrus from Halifax got things going with powerful but melodic songs.
