Field Day festival returns with another stellar line up
Field Day festival is returning with yet another stellar line up of established and cutting-edge artists.
Now in it's seventh year at Victoria Park, organisers have announced the second wave of acts to join headliners Animal Collective and Bat For Lashes.
Veteran punk-poet John Cooper Clarke, as well as Kurt Vile and the hotly-tipped Savages will all be performing at the East London day festival.
Solange Knowles, Beyonce's little sister, will be making her first ever London festival appearance.
The soul singer has been piped for big things since releasing her single 'Losing You' in October, while her recent gig at XOYO received rave reviews.
Dreamy pop act Wild Nothing will be bringing their orchestrated synths and 80's style indie-pop to the stage.
Added to the mix are headliners Animal Collective, hailing from Baltimore, who released their first album in 2000.
It is the first time the collective have performed on the main stage at Field Day with audiences in for a treat of inventive sounds and lush melodies.
Joining them is Bat For Lashes, headed by the majestic Natasha Khan, with audiences promised a haunting and magical performance.
Dance music fans will also be pleased to find a host of DJs added to the line up including garage-house duo Disclosure, Julio Bashmore and Seth Troxler.
The festival is curated by promoters Eat Your Own Ears, alongside a village festival mentality combined with pioneering music.
Expect to see sack races, tug of war and the world famous winkle picking contest if you fancy a break from the music.
Book it now as this is sure to sell out.
