2nd best live act i was this year - they are stupendous live at the moment.

That's good to hear! I've never got the chance to see them. Sadly there has always seemed to be someone clashing with them, like at Primavera this year. Will finally be putting that right at Field Day though :D

Thee Oh Sees were one the best bands I saw at EOTR this year. This is an awesome addition!

I believe it's a whole new band personnel to the one that toured a few years ago.

Richard James is probably glad he's playing inside with the weather conditions at Day for Night in America but looked like a fantastic Aphex Twin show. Looking forward to Field Day!

ticket bought for third year in a row. Looking forward to more line up additions although there is already enough there for me to make the ticket worth the money!

Great news! Do we think they'll be headlining?

Nah, just posted this in the Glastonbury section but there's no way they're headlining over Aphex Twin. Aphex Twin being on the second stage leads me to believe they'll have a pretty big (in comparison to previous years) headliner to make up for the loss of a day, and RTJ ain't that (although still a great booking on what's looking to be a phenomenal lineup)

edit: although this http://thequietus.com/articles/21622-run-the-jewels-field-day says they're closing the main stage, so either there's a headliner on before them or I'm talking out of my arse

Field Day's post on facebook and Instagram says that Run The Jewels are closing the Eat Your Own Ears Stage, which is the main stage

So on that basis Run the Jewels are headlining? And clashing with Aphex? I'm going for Aphex, so not particularly bothered, although I would have given RTJ  a go.

That'd suit me. I like the idea of seeing Aphex Twin live but watching back his live sets on YouTube, I couldn't imagine enjoying it for more than fifteen mins. Love his music but I guess I'd have to admit I'm a rock-head when it comes to live music.

Great addition but I was still hoping for Bon Iver to headline, maybe they're doing the Coachella thing of having the main act second last?

Could possibly be something a bit more low key (like Bon Iver) and they're having Run the Jewels finish the night with a bang

...

Or maybe it's just Run the Jewels headlining :lol:

Aphex Twin
Nina Kraviz
Jon Hopkins (DJ)
Moderat
Marcel Dettmann
Dekmantel Soundsystem

 

That's the Barn Lineup

 

happy with Moderat being faily low, reduces risk of some clashes

The other weekend 6Music said Aphex Twin is headlining, so maybe the Barn is the "main stage" over EYOE stage this year.

Aphex Twin definitely seems like the bigger deal of the two - maybe that stage is just more suitable for his show despite being smaller.

Yeah I'm in the same position as you, despite my best efforts!  Quite content with doing the whole thing by myself as it's only a day festival but company is always better - feel free to drop me a message :)
