Festival season is fast-approaching. Therefore, Field Day 2015 is fast-approaching. The 'inner' city festival takes place over the weekend of the 6th and 7th of June, and boasts some of the biggest names in alternative music This year the festival boasts a more diverse lineup than ever before, with the likes of internationally recognised acts such as Caribou, Chet Faker and Django Django, to lesser known bands such as Astronomyy and Jagaara, who are looking to make some traction. Set in the East London mecca that is Victoria Park, the festival brings you the best in indie, alternative, house and disco, along with a bit of African, rock, and electro-pop just to make sure. This festival is the epitome of multi-genre ambiguity.
With the Saturday acting as the main attraction (at a price of only around £55), punters have a wide range of acts to choose from. In recent years, the festival has expanded to a weekend format, where the Sunday is focused around a headline act - this year, Ride. However, with a day packed full of artists too (including Mac Demarco, Savages and Diiv to name a few), the weekend is the most attractive package at only £83 a head. You couldn't find a better bargain if you ask me.
Being an annual pilgrim, I seriously advise you to visit Field Day this year, or at least at some point in the near future. Grab a ticket and don't miss out.
Great people, great setting, great vibes, great music.
That's all I have to say for now. But please check out my essential Field Day playlist (for the Saturday) below. It compliments this great weather we are having quite well.
