Field Day Add New Names
Field Day are delighted to reveal the new line-up additions that will be joining headliner PJ Harvey, and previously announced artists including Beach House, Daphni, GOAT, John Grant and Thurston Moore Band on Sunday 12th June.
First up are Air, the French outfit whose sound has been influenced by the psychedelic and progressive rock pioneers Pink Floyd. With a string of hits under their belt, the duo will treat fans to a special set of their classics, demonstrating their seminal signature sound. They're perhaps best known for their 1998 debut Moon Safari which went platinum in the UK and for a short while seemed to define the musical zeitgeist. They’ve also composed elegant soundtracks for Sofia Coppola’s Lost in Translation and The Virgin Suicides.
Joining Air will be the hugely successful Australian rock band The Temper Trap. With the band’s third album on the horizon, they'll be showcasing new material at the festival. It’s been ten years since the recently announced Mystery Jets broke surface with their debut album, Making Dens. What’s kept the band consistently fascinating over the last decade has been an itchy-footed desire to keep trying new things. Given the strength of their new album Curve Of The Earth, the next ten years looks set to be as exciting for listeners as the last.
Field Day have also announced New York native sing-songwriter and filmmaker Adam Green. With his new hyper-sensory, poetic and humorously subversive Aladdin project currently making waves, Green will perform new tracks from the album at Field Day.
Hair-raising and pulse-quickening, indie punk rockers Fat White Family will also be on board this Field Day Sunday 12th June. Formed in a Peckham squat, the band have now released their second album Songs For Our Mothers, hailed as rich and fascinating both lyrically and musically.
Brooklyn-dwelling singer-producer Empress Of will bring her deconstructed R&B rhythms and skittering, minimalist beats; whilst fresh off new album Meet The Humans, Steve Mason brings his dance, pop, folk, dub, and deep house influences.
Finnish accordionist Kimmo Pohjonen Skin will also be on board, known for his avant garde and experimental work with his custom-made electrified and modified instrument. Kimmo proudly counted the late David Bowie as one of his fans, who invited the artist to his 2002 Meltdown Festival in London. Finally, Field Day are excited to welcome the astonishing voice, thunderous rhythm and euphoric drone of D.D Dumbo and Italy’s Mind Enterprises who will bring his vibrant take on dance to Field Day Sunday.
