TURF 2016 – September 16, 17, 18, 2016
It felt like it was a long time coming, and maybe that’s because the folks at TURF were so good at teasing us. Today we got the first lineup announcement and it was worth the wait!
We’ve included a complete list of the announced artists, and TURF wants you to know there are 19 more acts to come, including a headliner. That’s a whopping total of 44 bands.
Heading into year five you’ll notice some pretty big changes. There will be four stages, including a partially tented stage named Battle of York and there will be an indoor stage, inside the museum, named the Rebellion Stage. They’ve also shaken up the VIP experience.
“In past years, TURF artist guests, sponsors and upgrades got the same VIP amenities. In 2016 these folks will get their own VIP but not any front of house privilege. This means in 2016 the VIP area will be smaller and more exclusive to actual VIP ticket holders.” -http://torontourbanrootsfest.com
