Toronto, Canada -- The Field Trip Music and Arts Festival is back for 2014, with a lineup that includes Broken Social Scene, Interpol, The Kills, Constantines, and CHVRCHES. The festival will be held on June 7 and 8 at Fort York and Garrison Common in Toronto.


Field Trip, which began last year as a one-day 10th anniversary celebration of Toronto-based record label and artist services company Arts and Crafts Productions, will expand this year into a two-day music, arts, and culinary festival, highlighting Toronto-based artists.


Broken Social Scene, who have technically been on hiatus since 2011, are headlining the festival for the second year in a row. Kevin Drew, co-founder of the band, is also a founder of Arts and Crafts Productions, explaining the band's returning headlining spot at the festival. As was the case last year, Field Trip will likely be the only chance fans will have to see them in 2014.


While 2013's roster comprised entirely artists signed to Arts and Crafts, this year's will expand outside their own ranks - only four on the lineup are on the label (Broken Social Scene, Kevin Drew, Reuben and the Dark, and Lowell), while the rest are local and international talent.


Marketed as more than just a music festival, Field Trip will include artist boutiques, family-friendly events (children under 12 get in free), and food vendors. VIP tickets will even include "exclusive Field Trip inspired snacks."


VIP and general admission weekend tickets are already on sale, with single-day lineup information and tickets to be announced soon.


Full Lineup: Broken Social Scene, Interpol, The Kills, Chvrches, Constantines, Washed Out, Lord Huron, Gord Downie & the Sadies, Kevin Drew, Hydra, Half Moon Run, Shad, Austra, Fucked Up, Do Make Say Think, A Tribe Called Red, Badbadnotgood, The Darcys, Vance Joy, Reuben and the Dark, and Lowell.
