As part of a series of events, releases and collaborations throughout 2013 in spirit of celebrating Arts & Crafts’ 10th anniversary (dubbed AC10), the Toronto-based independent music company is teaming up with Jeremy Laing. The young designer, whose organic approach to construction have earned him a name in Canadian fashion, will help select musicians from Arts & Crafts diverse artist roster to create a compilation.

While complete details surrounding the collaboration have not yet been released — which admittedly makes the partnership hard to understand — preparations for the Field Trip Festival are in full swing, to no surprise.

AC10 aims to promote creativity and community, but lest we forget the company’s roots are founded in music. A Norman Wong black and white portrait series, and a pop up shop are nice additions to the festivities (just to name a couple), but fans will be elated to celebrate a decade of good music with a full day of tunes performed by artists of the respected Canadian indie outlet.

Feist, The Darcys, Bloc Party, among many more, will gather on June 8 at Fort York and Garrison Common in Toronto, as an introduction to Broken Social Scene, who will reunite after their indefinite hiatus almost two years ago for just one show. Better get your tickets now.
