They're all DJs and producers. If they're new additions then it's pretty clear they're fully leaning into the electronic thing this year.

they've already said they're doing the electronic thing.

Which surely just makes it a normal night at a normal London venue.

Some people might know Paul Woolford as Special Request.

If the lineup mentioned is true, overall it's quite disappointing. I live really near to the venue so I might just try and pick up a really cheap ticket nearer the time.

Biggest problem for Field Day is that it has no USP.

I should hope so. He's been around for 20+ years. ;)

It's such a shame that they've just been pummelled into the ground by other festivals sucking up their bookings: All Points East, Lovebox and Junction 2 are all elbowing in on Field Day's turf and I can't really see much of a future for the festival unless it really downsizes.

The last couple at Victoria Park were fantastic fun and a great, mixed lineup.

Yeah, I think its lost its way a bit and they were unlucky last year with the weather causing them problems. I'm surprised they stayed at the Drumsheds as I thought they would want to erase the bad PR from last year and have a fresh start at a new venue.

As you say, there is no shortege of alternative festivals and so some will naturally run their course and be replaced with new brands. Citadel springs to mind. Although, Lovebox seems to have done ok after moving on from Vicky Park.

The above sums it up nicely, it just sounds like another night at any  number of night clubs in London.

I presume they have some sort of deal with the local council or developers around that site – they're actively regenerating Meridian Water, so I imagine they get a great deal (and probably some funding) to keep it there. Certainly a lot easier and cheaper than putting it in a park further into town.

Very good point.

They own the venue. 

Broadwick Live own the festival and the venue (after their  divorce from Global last year )

Primavera Sound was going to take place at Broadwick's Drumsheds. The Field Day founder had the idea to merge the two events then shit hit and fan, he stepped down.

Bicep, have 2 sold out shows at the Brixton Academy in March. So are popular in London and so could be a big draw as headliner in an indoor venue. Having Bicep alone should ensure they shift some tickets.

Not sure what the capacity is going to for this one, looking like it's just going to be a multi-room indoor set up, which will basically just be for people who want to go to a daytime rave that finishes at 3am, not got enough on the bill to tempt me up there this time around I wouldn't think, when you compare it to something like Junction 2 anyway.

Anyone go to this last year? Just wondering how the line-up normally works in terms of scheduling. I really fancy Bicep, Floating Points and George Fitzgerald but wondering if they will all clash :D

Difficult to say, really.  Last year they had the likes of Skepta, Earl Sweatshirt, Death Grips etc. outdoors on a sort of 'main stage' and the more electronic stuff in a warehouse sort of thing.  Looking at this year's line up, I wouldn't be surprised if the whole thing was indoors on a handful of stages?

Thanks. Sounds like to me that Floating Points and Bicep will probably clash then, which would make it not worth it for me. The setup doesn't really appeal, particularly if there's no outdoor aspect.

Not having some outdoor element but still having the festival in the height of summer feels a bit of a weird one to me. If you are going to run an entirely indoor festival, do it at Easter or something when you are not competing with another 10 festivals in London alone.

Yeah I must admit it's a bit off-putting. If it's a sweltering day, which July often does provide, it's going to be pretty unpleasant being indoors all day.

In fairness, the main Drumsheds building is huge, don't recall there being too many issues with heat etc last year. As people have said though, there were was a main outdoor stage, and then 2 stages in the Drumsheds venue, and then 3 or so smaller outdoor stages, would be surprised if there wasn't some sort of outdoor element.

Weather was rubbish last year though – or was on the day I went, at least – so it wouldn’t have been...
