This is your two week warning!

June the 6th is two weeks away, and that means that 2015’s instalment of Field Day is two weeks away too. If you’re based in London then, given the quality of the last few iterations, Field Day is really somewhere you should be this year.

If you haven’t been, essentially Field Day feels like a big messy village fair, right down to the Women’s Institute cake stand (run by the Dalston Darlings) and daft village fete style entertainment running through the festival.

This is coupled with some serious musical talent, and amplified by the fact that Field Day seems to be growing every year. It’s pretty amazing that the organisers manage to fit as much as they do into the finite boundaries of Victoria Park, and the space constraints mean that everything you find in the festival grounds is of the highest quality. No fluff here.

If you’re a dance fan head down on the Saturday and get down in a tent to the likes of Caribou, HudMo and Leon Vynehall. If you’re more into your guitar music and chilled vibes get yourself down on the Sunday, and be sure to catch Errors and Hælos.

One of the quirks of Field Day is that it’s very much a day-time festival, which is a big part of its charm. Don’t worry if you want to keep partying though – after-parties abound at Lock Tavern, The Shacklewell Arms, Oval Space…

Get yourself in the mood with the ever-growing official Spotify playlist and grab yourself a final-run ticket before they vanish and you feel horribly left out; imagine it now – your friends all partying in the sun while you sit in your lonely room, weeping, in front of the mirror.
