Richie Hawtin, The Field, Modeselektor, Simian Mobile Disco, James Holden and more headline the Field Day in Victoria Park this summer.
Now in its second year, Field Day is a one-day festival which combines dance, electronica, indie with a village fete feel. With different stages programmed by the likes of Eat Your Own Ears, Blogger’s Delight, Bugged Out! and NME, musically the festival is a varied lot, with headliners including Les Savy Fav, Of Montreal and even a DJ set from Helders of the Arctic Monkeys. Dance-wise, the lineup is strong with Simian Mobile Disco, The Emperor Machine, Benga, Modeselektor, and Richie Hawtin all stepping up to the plates. For the nostalgic, Field Day also features village fete-style fun n' games such a coconut shies, welly throwing, and even a tug of war.
