Situated in London’s East End, Victoria Park plays host to Field Day Festival this coming Saturday June 2nd, a celebration of the best alternative music around today, now in its fifth year.
Spread across seven stages the fantastic line-up features a mixture of well-known musicians such as Franz Ferdinand and The Vaccines with new up-and-coming talent, Toy who are quickly gaining popularity all over the country. There are also various DJ sets spread around the stages including Radio 1’s very own Huw Stephens.
Bands that are a must see are London’s indie rockers Zulu Winter, the brilliant Spector and Scottish electro band Errors. Possibly one of the best value festivals around, costing only £45 a ticket for a day crammed full of great music, the perfect ‘adult only’ event to kick off any Jubilee celebrations.
Field Day’s sister festival, The Apple Cart takes place the following day in the same park, a more family friendly affair with arts, craft, comedy, and of course an abundance of great music. The phenomenal Adam Ant takes to the stage alongside his band, The Good, The Mad and The Lovely Posse. Other acts are Inner City, Billy Bragg, Jamie N Commons and the melodic sounds of Noah & The Whale.
It’s festival time!
