Preview: Field Trip 2022: Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Peach Pit, Kurt Vile & The Violators, Lucy Dacus, The Halluci Nation, Valley, Busty and The Bass, Rheostatics, The Rural Alberta Advantage, Pierre Kwenders and many more

Field Trip is back for the first time since 2018! Field Trip is a fixture of the Toronto music festival season and it's good to see the festival back in action for 2022. They had taken a hiatus for 2019 and of course couldn't come back in 2020 or 2021 due to covid. 

Field Trip returns for 2022 with a one-day festival, taking place on July 9 at Fort York Garrison Commons. I'm looking forward to the full Field Trip experience including a beautiful downtown Toronto venue, a great crowd, good food, lots to experience when not taking in live music, activities for the whole family, including the little ones, and, of course, some of the best artists from Canada and beyond.

It’s a pretty stacked line up with:

Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats

Peach Pit

Kurt Vile & The Violators

Lucy Dacus

The Halluci Nation


Busty and The Bass


The Rural Alberta Advantage

Pierre Kwenders

Daisy the Great

Georgia Harmer


Get all your ticket information and other details about the festival at the Field Trip official web site. It's sure to be a great return for a Toronto-favourite festival. Grab your tickets, see you there, and watch this space for coverage after the festival.

Here's this year's schedule:

I caught an opening set by now-headliner Nathaniel Rateliff at The Horseshoe Tavern back in 2014.

The Halluci Nation, formerly A Tribe Called Red, performed at Riverfest Elora, Hillside and Field Trip.

Busty and The Bass brought the funk to Hillside and Riverfest Elora.

The Rural Alberta Advantage performed at Riverfest Elora and The Wolf Island Winter Ball.

I've captured intense sets from Haviah Mighty at Royal Mountain Records and Riverfest Elora.

Pierre Kwenders was at Field Trip 2018.
