Field 05 - Celebration in a Hemp Field 

Field 05 to be held at Craik, Saskatchewan, Canada on August 20-21, 2005.

     It is now official; Craik, Saskatchewan has been selected as the site for Field 05. This innovative event combines music and performance with sustainable agriculture and renewable energy. It will all take place right in the middle of a field of hemp grown and sculpted specifically for Field 05.

     "We approached Craik because of their commitment, through their eco-centre and other initiatives, to a sustainable and green future", states Patrick McAuley, Event Coordinator for Field 05.

     Field 05, to be held August 20 through the 21st, brings together diverse groups from across Saskatchewan and the Canadian prairies to celebrate Industrial Hemp and all its wide-ranging uses as a sustainable crop. Along with Hemp workshops for farmers and the general public there will be a number of exhibits and opportunities for the public to purchase the varied amount of industrial hemp products that have proliferated since legalization in March of 1998.

     Along with the hemp, Field 05 will be a showcase of the best in contemporary Saskatchewan and Prairie music. Music will start in the early afternoon of August 20th and will continue until early Sunday morning. Roots, reggae, rock, funk, hip hop and electronica from some of the Prairies most progress groups will provide for a high energy event. Fada Dance performances and Fire dancing will round out the great list of performers.

     There will also be a beer garden on site as well as vendors selling non-alcoholic refreshments. Certified organic bison and certified organic vegetarian dishes will be available for hungry concert goers.

     Field 05 is sure to be an exciting and unique event that is not to be missed! Please mark it on your calendars now and plan to get involved.

     Sponsors include: Hemptown Clothing, Farmer Direct Co-operative, fairDeal food non-profit, and the Saskatchewan Hemp Association.
