EXPOSURES captures the moods and experiences of fans and artists, both onstage and off.
Here we go, the unofficial beginning of Canada's summer festival season and the first edition of Exposures this year.
This past weekend we sent Ryan Parker out to Toronto's Field Trip Music & Arts Festival with his mom's camera, a couple rolls of film and a wallet big enough to buy himself half a beer. If you weren't there you missed some amazing sets at the kid's stage from both actual children's performers (Sharon and Bram) and moonlighters (Max Kerman, Dan Mangan, Kevin Drew), a lot of roots rock, and some big-stage pop that the big stage couldn't quite handle. We learned a lot.
While we were out roaming, Ryan was out catching the vibes, from hoagie making contests to CanRock celebs with their families. It's the most heartwarming festival photo gallery you'll see all... week.
Sharon and Bram, the most family friendly act of the festival playing at the kid's stage.
