I am really excited to have Phoenix headline, a great live band and a band that will get you dancing and singing... The rest of the bill is really shaping up, there are so many great albums out in 2010, it feels like an exciting time for music..."
Field Day comes to the east end of London on Saturday 31st July and bringsg together many of London's alternative concert and club promoters (Eat Your Own Ears, Adventures In The Beetroot Field, Bugged Out!) to produce a day of music, dancing and maximum hoopla on multiple music stages with a wide array of acts both bands and DJs.
Also announced today is the return of Village Mentality, the off-the-wall village fete area complete with Brass Band, tug o' war, sack racing and much more. The Village Green area will once again supply festival goers with some bucolic treats away from the hubbub of the main festival.
Inspired by summer sports days and country fetes - Field Day's very own village green will host stalls and activities throughout the daytime, ranging from sack-racing, to whack-the-rat, Bowling for Bacon, a tombola, coconut shy, and tasty homemade treats.
