Field Day Announce Central Saint Martins Partnership
Field Day are delighted to reveal the new line-up additions that will be joining headliners James Blake and PJ Harvey, and previously announced artists including Yeasayer, The Avalanches, Beach House, Daphni, Motor City Drum Ensemble, Skepta, NAO, Mura Masa, Roman Flügel, GOAT, John Grant and Air on Field Day Saturday 11th & Sunday 12th June.
Field Day Saturday 11th June
Field Day are excited to welcome the extremely talented singer/song-writer Astronomyy to the Field Day Saturday line-up. Describing his sound as 'surf rock', the mysterious producer's debut, 'Don't Need U' is filled with spine-tingling beats entwine with nocturnal slide-guitars and nullifying percussion.
Also appearing on Field Day Saturday 11th June will be Doug Hream Blunt. Doug learnt to play music at the age of 35, by taking an evening class in the Golden Gate neighbourhood of San Francisco in the late 1980s. In the years to come, Doug wrote and self-pressed an album called "Gentle Persuasion". The funk outsider has since been championed by the likes of Ariel Pink and previously announced Field Day Saturday artist Dean Blunt, who also took his name.
Incredible new UK duo Let's Eat Grandma made up of Rosa and Jenny will also be on board. Backed by BBC Introducing, the barely out of school pair have been best friends since they were 4 years old. Snapped up by Transgressive, the duo will release their debut album this summer, despite their menacing moniker, Let's Eat Grandma have a rather soothing, palatial sound.
We are delighted to welcome back BBC Radio 1's Huw Stephens and BBC 6 Music's Tom Ravenscroft to play mesmerisingly eclectic sets over the weekend.
Field Day Sunday 12th June
Field Day Sunday 12th June welcomes London based pop trio Kero Kero Bonito, who's name comes from the Japanese words for frog onomatopoeia and a type of fish. With their sound largely influenced by J-pop, dancehall, and video game music, they write many of their songs using a Casio SA-45 mini-keyboard, with lead vocalist Perry rapping in both Japanese and English.
Following their debut track 'Living Alone' which received radio spins from Zane Low, Phil and Alice and Huw Stephens at Radio 1 last year, 5 piece band from Bath Bad Sounds make their Field Day debut. Hailing from Sheffield, the rising three piece band Baba Naga will also be on board, with their first release already being supported by 6 Music and Radio X.
Field Day will also welcome London based quartet Arthur Beatrice, who'll bring their bold and radiant pop sound to Victoria Park this June, in addition to former tribes frontman Johnny Lloyd. Johnny's new EP is due to drop in May, featuring new song 'Hello Death', which was produced by Jamie T at his studio in Hoxton.
Field Day are also excited to announce Psychemagik, the UK duo known for their beautiful production work, prolific remixing skills, obscenely vast record collections and transcendent mixtape journeys. Moxie, the DJ who has played an integral part in the evolution of NTS Radio will also be present on Field Day Sunday 12th June, in addition to London DJ and Producer Kiwi.
The ever cool singer, songwriter, producer and musician Royce Wood Junior will also be play a special DJ Set at the event, whilst maverick funketeer Doug Hream Blunt returns for day two of the Festival. DJ's Harry James and BBC 6 Music's Georgie Rogers will also be on board.
The tenth addition of Field Day will also see a new dance stage added to Sunday 12th June. – SNAP, CRACKLE & POP – will be headed up by the previously announced Daphni and Optimo, they'll also be be joined on the stage by Harry Love, Kiwi, Moxie and Psychemagik.
