Festival Profile: Field Day 2018

Name:  Field Day 

Where:  London, England 

When:  1&2nd June 

Playing host to some of the finest alternative and rap acts on the globe, Field Day has grown over the past eleven years, seeing some of the biggest up and coming names in indie and electro music grace its stages, as well as some true legends. Having lived in Tower Hamlets’ Victora Park since 2007, 2018 will see Field Day find a new home. Although details for 2018 have not been announced, we’re sure 2018’s edition will be one not to be missed.


Re-expanding to two days, this year’s field day will see Erykah Badu headline day one of the festival. Undoubtedly one of the finest contemporary artists around, she’ll be accompanied by the likes of Jordan Rakei, Madlib, Four Tet, Thundercat, Fever Ray, Princess Nokia, AJ Tracey, Mount Kimbie, Nils Farham, Floating Points and many more

Former Glories:

Since its inauguration in 2007, Field Day has sustained an independent ethos, featuring a variety of different genres – and housing some absolute icons unsurprisingly. Victoria Park has seen the likes of Run The Jewels, Aphen Twin, PJ Harvey, King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard, Mura Masa, Loyle Carner, Ride, Pixies, Metronomy, Mac DeMarco, Jamie xx, Disclosure, and many, many more.

Also Look Out For:

Field Day plays host to ‘Village Mentality’, where you can go and enjoy a good ol’ Tug-of-War, 3-legged racing, and a whole array of fête-esque games if you need a break from the music. Food and drinks wise, Field Day has a number of options available, so take a gander down to the London Brewer’s Market, and the Venn Street Market on the day!

Everything Else:

Field Day is a strict over 18s festival. Tickets for this year’s festival are on sale now starting at £79.95 for weekend tickets. For more info, tickets and a full lineup head over to the Field Day website.
