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.

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.

Thanks, thats quiet interesting and explains a lot.

Printworks etc. I can see why it's gone electronica.
