Headliner Set Times Announced

We have just announced our TURF headliner set times! For times, dates, and headline set lengths, check out the schedule page!

TIER TWO pricing is in effect until midnight of Wednesday July 29th until the price goes up again.

This year, we’re focusing on Toronto programming, with local artists from the greater Toronto area kicking off the festival each day; Fridays begins with performances by locals COLD SPECKS, GRAND ANALOG on the main stages, as well as CATL and THE SADIES co-headlining the South Stage.
Meanwhile, Saturday of TURF begins with performances by UNION DUKE, JULIAN TAYOR, THE ELWINS on the main stages, and the award winning STRUMBELLA’s and SKYDIGGERS co-headlining the South Stage. Sunday will commences with the BIRDS OF BELLWOODS, SATE, Lowest of the Low’s RON HAWKINS, and RON SEXSMITH on the main stage, with ELLIOTT BROOD headlining our South Stage

As 55% of all TURF ticket holders are from outside the GREATER TORONTO AREA, we are thrilled to introduce some of our incredible TORONTO based alternative roots music artists to those who reside outside our wonderful city and can’t wait for TURF festival goers to discover our amazing local music scene.

Our TURF Club Bonus Series shows run September 16th – 23, and we’ll be announcing our first round of shows on Tuesday, July 7th. This is a great opportunity to catch rising roots artists in a small club and see your favourite band twice during the weekend!
