Field Day Festival 2013

By Luke Sillett.

Since its inception in 2007, Field Day Festival has come back stronger year after year, cementing itself as one of the most dynamic, coolest and pioneering festivals London has the pleasure of hosting. Annually attracting the city’s hippest and influential; Field Day is the ultimate adult playground featuring fairground rides, 7 stages and an alternative village fete.

Showcasing a strong mix of Alternative, Folk and Electonic music, Field Day is renowned for its eclectic and ever creative line-up. The Festival is located in Hackney’s Victoria Park with the official (and unofficial) after parties dotted around various sites in East London. Among many others, last year saw heavyweights such as Andrew Bird, Beirut, Metronomy, Hudson Mohawke, Julio Bashmore, Django Django and Grimes command the Field Day crowds.
