In a couple of weeks I’m off to Field Day (along with most of the people i know it seems), which is located in the very same park as LED Festival last year, for which you can read my review here:
Its got a very impressive looking line up for a festival priced at only about £45. Acts I’d particularly like to see include:
Four Tet b2b James Holden
Oneohetrix Point Never
Sun Ra Arekestra
Not bad eh? Thats more than I’ll be able to see, even if none of them clash, which i’m sure some of them will. Plus plenty of unknown bands too, which may appeal to the ears throughout the day. So yeah, looks like great stuff!
I have heard bad things about the organisation of Field Day (long queues for toilets, bad sound and that sort of thing), but its been around a few years now, so hopefully should have sorted itself out by now. And even if not, all these bands and all these friends ought to make it a fine old day out. Come all ye, and dance to Souleyman!
