First names for Field Day festival

Entering into its sixth year, Field Day will be returning to Victoria Park with its 'unique formula of pioneering line up coupled with village fete mentality', all in the heart of east London. Due to the London 2012 Olympics, Field Day will now take place over the Diamond Jubilee June Bank Holiday weekend on Saturday 2nd June.

First artists announced:

Afrocubism / Andrew Bird / Baxter Dury / Beirut / Com Truise

Errors / Fennesz / Franz Ferdinand / Gold Panda / Here We Go Magic

Hudson Mohawke – Live / Jeffrey Lewis & The Junkyard / Julio Bashmore / Metronomy / Outfit

Maya Jane Coles / Papa M / Peaking Lights

R. Stevie Moore / Revere / Rocketnumbernine / Rustie / SBTRKT

Tortoise / To Kill a King / The Vaccines / Zulu Winter

Franz Ferdinand geezer Alex Kapranos says: “I'm looking forward to Field Day this coming summer. I've been the last couple of years and the line-up's always been excellent. Electrelane playing Small Town Boy and Martin Creed's set were last year’s highlights for me. This year's line-up is already shaping up well with Metronomy and R Stevie Moore on the bill. Being in walking distance of a good pub at the end of the night works well for me too...”
