Field Day is a summer event bringing together many of London's alternative concert and club promoters (Eat Your Own Ears, Bugged Out!, Bleed, Lanzarote) to produce a day of music, dancing and maximum hoopla set in London's heartland at Victoria Park. Music is the main driver but it also aims to have the charm of a village fete. There's multiple music stages and fete activities with a twist.
