Field Day 2017 - Festival Review


Field Day is a yearly London festival, which is on its 10th year now. The festival specialises in electronic music, hip-hop, pop, indie and some other things here and there. This year the festival has some of the best artists from yesteryear, some of the best artists of recent years and some newbies who have all the potential to be greats. Naturally today was a great time. 

Field Day 2017 - Festival Review

Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith kicks off today with ethereal, otherworldly synth music. These songs are hypnotic and coma inducing with mystical textures. When Smith brings her own vocals into play, they sound tribal, making it feel even more like we're in a fantasy forest.

Watching Abra feels like watching a star in the making. Despite only being second on the bill on one of today's smaller stages, there's a ton of people filling this tent up, dancing and singing along to her lush, bare and honest alternative R&B. Abra herself has shining stage presence, pulling funky moves and having a blast to her jams just like anyone else.

Field Day - 2016 Live Review


"Don't forget your wellies" read the message on the Field Day Twitter account. Of course it did. Welcome to your British summer of music. And rain. And mud.

Field Day - 2016 Live Review

Wellington boots and waterproofs; it's a familiar tale at festivals across the country and there was a fine selection on show at this year's Field Day. But it wasn't just east London's finest array of ponchos that caught the eye this weekend. Oh no.

Field Day, celebrating its tenth year, managed to upstage the weather gods and put on a festival masterclass. Boasting one of the most eclectic and exciting line-ups at any UK festival this summer this was a proper birthday bash and undoubtedly the best Field Day to date.

There are some genuinely huge and historic festivals cemented in the June festival calendar and London's Field Day continues to prove that it's worthy of cement-status. There's a lot to be praised when it comes to this festival; the organisation, the food, the drink and the atmosphere are all brilliant, but it all comes down to the line-up. There aren't any safe bets and no scheduling based on labels and budgets. This is a line up built on talent and potential.

Keep Calm And Party On! London's Ten Most Exciting Festivals For 2014


Field Day LoveBox The Pixies Metronomy Neutral Milk Hotel James Blake Camden Crawl Atari Teenage Riot Ghetts Chase and Status Mia Wireless Festival Kanye West Drake The Subways Somerset House Kodaline Calling Festival Aerosmith McBusted Black Sabbath Eagulls Polica LeeFest The Great Escape

If you want a unique festival experience this year, London could be the place for you. Featuring a diverse range of events from the independent ethics of Jabberwocky to the mainstream attitude of Wireless, 2014 is not all about the States.

The UK is home to some incredible, highly respected music festivals such as Isle of Wight Festival, Leeds and Reading Festival and, of course, Glastonbury - but just what do we have in store from the nation's capital? London is unquestionably the UK's most vibrant city and, when it comes to music, there's really no denying that. The rest of the world may have SXSW, Coachella, Ultra and Exit (to name but a very small few), but London has a plethora of unique local events with line-ups and atmospheres that really prove their worth - and we're here to share them with you.

Jabberwocky 2014 logoJabberwocky (August 15th-16th)
All Tomorrow's Parties present this brand new festival for 2014, co-hosted by Pitchfork and Primavera Sound and set to take place at The Excel Centre this August. For its inaugural event, Jabberwocky will see headline acts from Neutral Milk Hotel, James Blake, Darkside and Caribou, not to mention support from Kurt Vile & The Violators, Hookworms and Electric Wizard. Like many of the best festivals, it's not all about the music as Jabberwocky will be hosting some film events and, as the name suggests, there'll be plenty of art to enjoy too. Tickets are priced at £38.50 per day.

Field Day 2013 - Preview


With Field Day 2013 less than two weeks away, now seems like a good time to look at the 5 must-see bands of the festival. 

Field Day 2013 - Preview

After the success of the festival last year it was difficult to see how it could possibly be improved. As the line up announcements filtered through from Field Day HQ, it became clear just how special this year is going to be. A quite astonishing array of artists all playing in one field, on one day - what could possibly go wrong? Clashes, of course. The chances of you catching every artist you intended on seeing are slim, so here are the 5 must-see acts this year.

Savages
Arguably the most exciting band of 2013. Renowned for their extraordinary live performances, as demonstrated on Jools Holland a few months ago, Savages are one band you will not want to miss this summer. With their debut album having come out a few weeks ago, now's the time to catch them live. It will be an "I was there" moment.
