Toronto – Downtown Toronto’s newest outdoor, multi-day music festival, TURF (Toronto Urban Roots Festival) is set to return to Fort York’s Garrison Common on July 4th, 5th & 6th. This year the festival will be expanding to three stages, forty-four artists over three full days of programming. Three day early-bird tickets will be available for $119.50 plus service charge and three day early-bird VIP at $199.50 plus service charge. On sale dates will be announced soon. TURF’s first 2014 line-up announcement will be made on February 14th.
TURF is brought to you by Toronto’s leading concert promoters Collective Concerts, Eggplant Entertainment, and Buffalo’s Funtime Presents.
This year’s festival boasts expanded programming. The inaugural festival began programming at 6:00PM on Thursday and Friday. This year the festival will kick-off at 2:30 PM on July 4th which will triple the number of Friday performers. The after-hour’s bonus club series also expands and will feature a pre-TURF festival opening party on Thursday, July 3rd and post-TURF club shows on Monday, July 7th. Finally, the overall pace of this year’s festival will change.
“At last year’s fest we were obsessed with the notion that once an artist completed their set the other stage had to start up right away,” explains TURF Artistic Director Jeff Cohen. “The feedback we got from last year’s patrons was they could have used a little breather in between sets to get some food, a beer, or just walk the grounds. This year there will be ten minute breaks between the two main stages and a full change over break on the third stage.”
