Field Day are announcing even more names to an already awe-inspiring line-up! The line-up already include the likes of Animal Collective, Bat For Lashes, Disclosure, Seth Troxler, Four Tet, Mulatu Astatke, Kurt Vile, Mount Kimbie and many more.
Confirmed for 2013 is legendary house and garage producer Todd Edwards, whose vocal reconstruction techniques and canon of classics from the early nineties has influenced many. Rising UK house stars Waze & Odyssey have taken Todd’s baton and run with it with the likes of ‘Love Attack’ which become an instant classic. Psychemagik have become known for their sensational disco re-edits, vast record collections and transcendent mix tapes. Last seen together in the Boiler Room also invited are Lil Silva and Mele to play a back-to-back set of carnivalistic beats. Elsewhere, deep-house giant Ben Pearce, synonymous with his oddly anthemic deep-house debut ‘What I Might Do’ that dominated club floors across the world in 2012 and went platinum, will take the decks and showcase his vast musical knowledge and ability to play across a wide range of musical genres. Meanwhile Feathers, the first all-female synth pop band in the world according to The Guardian, will hypnotize us with their swirling, harmonic vocals and brilliant use of MIDI. Also on board is regular 6 Music, XFM presenter and All Back No Front podcaster Jon Hillcock, while Field Day veteran Jen Long will be back again this year to grace Victoria Park with one of her superb DJ sets.
Entering its seventh year, Field Day is returning to the leafy green surroundings of London’s Victoria Park on Saturday 25th May. Known for its eclectic and imaginative line-ups, Field Days dance side is as strong as ever. Taking things in all musical directions are an army of talent including the sonic free form experimentalists Animal Collective, the cerebral and melodic Four Tet, hip hop hero Oneman, and rising stars Jagwar Ma showcase their sweet, seditious chant-rock melodies alongside London’s most notorious electronic duo Mount Kimbie. Also on the agenda are band of brothers Disclosure, performing their unique breed of garage-house that has catapulted them to dizzying heights and chart success. First-class aural delights are ahead from Daphni, Seth Troxler recently voted number 1 DJ by Resident Advisor, Bristol’s original bass hero Julio Bashmore, and Montreal producer Jacques Greene, who will be playing LIVE and showcasing his modern combination of house and 2step.
As with years gone by, Field Day will be providing ample entertainment for those looking for respite from the music in the Village Mentality area on The Village Green. Expect traditional side stalls inspired by country pastimes and weird and wonderful fete games, from classic tug of war, sack races and egg and spoon race to more unexpected and fantastic ones like tea bag tossing and the world famous winkle picking contest. So with all of this be sure to get your tickets now.
