Field Day is delighted to announce the first set of acts for Field Day Saturday 7th June.
To headline the main stage on the Saturday, Field Day will be warmly welcoming back melancholic electronica masters Metronomy. Spring 2014 sees their highly awaited return with their brilliant new album ‘Love Letters’. Two years have passed since they last played Field Day and since we heard any new music, and we literally can’t wait to have them at Field Day again!
Metronomy’s Joe Mount says: "I’m very, very excited (about playing Field Day). It"s the first time we’ve officially headlined a festival so it"s a big deal for us...It was a really, really nice experience last time so we are very much looking forward to it”
Metronomy will be joined by an eclectic line up which includes LA four piece Warpaint, who’s new, highly-anticipated self-titled album will be released in January. Also on board are pop starlet Sky Ferreira in an exclusive London festival appearance, Detroit rapper Danny Brown, the brilliance of Melbourne rock foursome The Temper Trap, ethereal rockers Money, and South-African band John Wizards, who are praised for their magical sound of 1970s Lagos psych-funk meets Brooklynite chillwave and indie R&B.
Also confirmed are Syrian wedding-singer-turned-dance music-idol Omar Souleyman, 2013 Mercury prize nominee Jon Hopkins, Brooklyn-based electronic innovator Oneohtrix Point Never, Hyperdub’s seductive R&B singer Jessy Lanza, and rising producer and Hotflush/Aus regular George Fitzgerald. We are thrilled to welcome Fabric resident and purveyor of electronic psychedelic sounds Daniel Avery, as well as cosmic creative head of Border Community James Holden, who will be playing a live set at Field Day.
More exciting news coming very soon…!
