Extreme cold weather alerts? Poor driving conditions? Conflicting winter-length predictions via non-committal groundhogs? Forget about it.

Thanks to Field Trip, you now can: The first of the city’s summer festivals, slated for the weekend of June 4, just announced its lineup—and it’s hot.

The National and (brace yourself) Robyn are among headliners of the event, which returns to its home at the Historic Fort York & Garrison Common. Other musicians playing the festival this year include Santigold, Of Montreal, Charlotte Day Wilson, Holy Fuck, Ra Ra Riot, and Jazz Cartier. (The full list of performers can be found here.)

If music’s not your thing, Field Trip will also feature Laugh Barracks, an indoor comedy show; several artists-in-residence to spice up the venue; and a curious-sounding virtual reality experience. For the kids, there’s Day Camp programming, tailored especially for tots (yay for family-friendly events!).

Tickets for Field Trip go on sale Feb. 22 at 10 a.m., via Ticketmaster and FieldTripLife.com, or at the brick-and-mortar Rotate This and Soundscapes.
