New Artists Confirmed For Field Day 2013

Field Day is delighted to announce the next set of acts on the May 2013 bill. Joining recent additions Animal Collective, Bat For Lashes, Ginger Baker and Mulatu Astatke are John Cooper Clarke, Kurt Vile, Mount Kimbie, Seth Troxler and Solange, in her exclusive, first ever London festival appearance.

Entering its seventh year, Field Day will be returning to the leafy green surroundings of Victoria Park with its unique formula of pioneering line-up coupled with village fete mentality, all in the heart of East London. Field Day will take place over the Bank Holiday weekend on Saturday 25th May.

Hosted by forward-thinking promoters Eat Your Own Ears, Bugged Out!, BleeD/ Lanzarote and proudly partnering with The i Paper, The Quietus, FACT Magazine, Last FM, Resident Advisor, The Line of Best Fit and Stool Pigeon, Field Day is a festival that has become synonymous with imaginative and progressive bills hosting the likes of Franz Ferdinand, SBTRKT, Afrocubism, Grimes and Django Django last summer; 2013 is certainly shaping up to be no exception to this rule.
Promoter Tom Baker of Eat Your Own Ears says: "It's always a challenge trying to better the last Field Day line up.  But I think next year's is as thrilling, inspiring and diverse as anything we've ever done. I am personally honoured that Field Day will play host to the brilliant main stage double bill of ground breaking artists Animal Collective and Bat For Lashes. And alongside these, Zimbabwe's Thomas Mapfumo, seminal drummer Ginger Baker and Ethiopiques' legend Mulatu Astatke are true dream bookings for Field Day."

As with years gone by, Field Day will be providing ample entertainment for those looking for respite from the music in the Village Mentality area on The Village Green. Expect traditional side stalls inspired by country pastimes and weird and wonderful fete games, from classic tug of war, sack races and egg and spoon race to more unexpected and fantastic ones like tea bag tossing and the world famous winkle picking contest.

The excellent website Caught By The River, home to excellent writing by first class contributors on music, nature, ale, has carved itself a unique place on the web since its beginnings in 2007 and will be hosting a fine area at
