“It’s longevity is testament to the curation“, cites Dave Okumu of The Invisible, summing up Field Day’s continuous ability to showcase the established, the breakthrough, and tomorrow’s artists, whilst acts like Caribou and Metronomy pay tribute to the festival helping them develop and grow into the headline mainstays they’ve become.
Meanwhile Tom Baker, Field Day’s festival co-founder, explains the lineup’s diversity as well as the core values and message that the festival has kept consistent. The film also features incredible live footage from the years gone by with standout performances from the likes of Foals, Caribou and Floating Points to name a few.
Marcus Weedon, festival co-founder, adds: As we enter our second decade, it’s truly amazing to see how far Field Day has come from a pub car park in Shoreditch and what it now means to Londoners and those visiting the capital. It wouldn’t be possible without the ongoing support of everyone we’ve ever worked with so thank you.
Now in it’s 11th year, Field Day has consistently proved itself to be one of the leading festivals in the UK. Exceptional programming over the years have seen the best in upcoming and established acts such as PJ Harvey, Caribou, Skepta, Patti Smith and Pixies grace the Victoria Park stages.
The film was made in association with Clouded Vision and Crack Magazine.
