Festival Preview: Field Day

With London being such a hotbed for festivals in the summer, it can be almost impossible to decide which to go to. However, if grooving to beats from electronic powerhouses is your thing, Field Day might well be the festival for you.

Taking place on Saturday 19th August in East London’s glorious Victoria Park, the festival will be returning for its sixteenth year showcasing an eclectic mix of some of electronic music’s most revered artists as part of the Luno presents APE programme. At the top of the bill is the prodigious yet elusive Aphex Twin for what will be his first live performance since 2019, as well as co-headliner Bonobo, who’s internationally renowned for his genre-defying sound and inventive live performances.

The line-up also features appearances from powerhouses such as the explosive Arca, a Venezuelan artist whose music is some of the most sonically inventive and transformative I’ve ever heard. The avant-garde Sudan Archives will also be there whose album ‘Natural Brown Prom Queen’ was one of my favourites of last year, as well as the insanely inventive Actress, Jayda G, Jon Hopkins, Kelela, Moderat, SBTRKT, TSHA, Desire, Giulia Tess, Hagop Tchaparian, Mount Kimbie’s Kai Campos, LSDXOXO, Juliana Huxtable, MAFRO, and Surusinghe – with more TBA.

Field Day is an important festival central to the electronic scene, celebrating some of today’s most cutting-edge experimental electronic music from world famous acts to the underground. With endless sonic experiences, visual displays and colourful productions on offer, there will be much to feast one’s eyes and ears on throughout the day; and Joyzine will be on the ground to provide a round up of all the best sights and sounds.
