After another hugely successful and unforgettable event last summer Field Day will be expanding to a two day event in 2014, held on Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th of June 2014 at its home in Victoria Park in the heart of East London. Headliners Pixies and Metronomy will be joined by a variety of acts including Drenge, Blood Orange, Danny Brown, East India Youth, George Fitzgerald, Ghostpoet, Jagwar Ma, Sky Ferreira, Tim Burgess and Warpaint.
As with years gone by, Field Day provides entertainment for those looking for respite from the music in the Village Mentality area on The Village Green. Expect traditional side stalls inspired by country pastimes and weird and wonderful fete games such as sack racing, tug-o-war, tea bag tossing, winkle picking competition and last year’s highlight: the Nettle Eating Competition.
