The summer of 2013 is primed to be a big one for music festivals in Toronto. Just one day after the announcement of the first batch of NXNE ’13 acts and a month after word about Field Trip, more artists have been named to a brand new festival happening in July at Fort York.
Toronto Ubran Roots Festival (or T.U.R.F.) has bolstered its already impressive lineup of Belle & Sebastian, Neko Case, Joel Plaskett, She & Him, Justin Townes Earle and others.
It was announced Wednesday that The Hold Steady, Frank Turner, Lowest of the Low and Skydiggers are also headed Toronto.
Listen to the mix below to get a sense of what you’ll hear during the three day festival:
