Broken Social Scene to come out of musical limbo for one night to celebrate its label
Broken Social Scene will come out of its musical hiatus for one night only to celebrate the tenth anniversary of its label, Arts & Crafts. Along with group member Feist, the band will co-headline the brand new Field Trip Music & Arts Festival Saturday, June 8 in Toronto. Other acts include Bloc Party, Timber Timbre, Hayden, Cold Specks, Ra Ra Riot, and Trust. Tickets, including a limited number of early-bird passes priced at $55, are available now.
The fest is part of AC10, a series of events being thrown by the label to commemorate its anniversary. A full slate of the festivities has yet to be announced, but they will include various things steeped in the worlds of fashion, art, photography, and fiction. Arts & Crafts will also be releasing two special commemorative albums: 2003-2012, a four-LP box set made up of some of the label’s biggest hits and rarest rarities; and X, which is billed as “an entirely original collection of collaborative recordings by artist pairings” from the label’s roster.
