Caribou, Ride and Patti Smith are the biggest names at this ace leftfield music festival
Ride, Caribou, Patti Smith, FKA Twigs, Mac DeMarco, Run The Jewels, Savages, Kindness, Owen Pallett, Chet Faker, Diiv, Hookworms, Madlib, Django Django + more.
Since 2007 Field Day has slowly become one of London’s very best music festivals, with a consistently excellent booking policy covering the world’s finest alternative acts. The bill regularly incorporates everything from weird pop and indie up-and-comers to underground dance producers and folk musicians.
So far, the 2015 line-up is cracking. Recently reunited shoegaze legends Ride headline on Sunday, with iconic punk poet Patti Smith playing the whole of her classic album ‘Horses’ beforehand and more guitar-bending action by Mac DeMarco, Savages, Hookworms, Diiv and Eagulls. Floor-filling electropop maestro Caribou tops the bill on Saturday, leading a host of envelope-pushing artists including FKA Twigs, Todd Terje, Kindness, Tune-Yards, Chet Faker and Owen Pallett.
The rest of this year’s two-day line-up is just as solid. If the weather lives up to last year’s, this’ll be incredible.
