Jimmy Eat World & The New Pornographers Added to TURF


Before today, the list of performers for this year’s Toronto Urban Roots Festival (TURF) was already pretty stacked. In addition to headliners James Bay and Death Cab for Cutie, the festival roster also featured stellar live acts like Barenaked Ladies, Dropkick Murphys, The Hives and a ton of others.

Now, TURF – which runs from September 16-18 at Fort York Garrison Common in Toronto – has added Jimmy Eat World, The New Pornographers, Whitehorse, Margo Price, Dwayne Gretzky (playing The Tragically Hip), The Sadies, Wild Child, The Deslondes, Simone Denny, Lee Harvey Osmond, The Belle Game, Modern Space and Julia Jacklin to its three day, four stage music extravaganza. More bands are to be announced.

Various ticket packages are available and can be purchased here. The daily performer lineup can be seen here.

See you there!
