Field Day announce second wave of acts for 2016 festival

Field Day, arguably London's premier summer festival, takes place in Victoria Park every year - where it grows in size and popularity, but still maintains it's alternative roots and integrity. This year's festival takes takes place on the weekend of the 11-12th June, and is shaping up to be as big and as diverse as ever.

This year's line-up so far includes a UK exclusive from PJ Harvey, who will bring a close to the weekend on Sunday evening with her political art and superior song-writing. Alongside her back catalogue, Harvey will showcase her ninth studio album 'The Hope Six Demolition Project' (released on April 15th via Island records), which has been rumoured to follow in a similar style to the critically acclaimed and award-winning 'Let England Shake'. This performance is one we've been waiting for for a while; it's not to be missed.
Check out the brand new PJ Harvey track, which was premiered on Steve Lamacq's show on 6 Music. Listen [HERE].
