Field Day festival has announced it's moving to a new site - to Meridian Water, Enfield in North London, next to Tottenham Marshes at an old gas works.
With ten acres of outdoor space, the new site also has four giant interlinked warehouses, with the largest being the biggest warehouse venue in London, with a 7,500 capacity. The move indoors will allow Field Day to run later than any other London festival.
Luke Huxham, Festival Director, Field Day said: "2019 will mark the start of a new chapter for Field Day and a completely new type of festival for London. This new site will allow us to break down the restrictions that London festivals are normally faced with and deliver an unrivalled experience. It's hugely exciting to be working with such a pioneering council, who support our ideas and are focused on creating a new cultural hub for London. We can't wait to unveil more of our plans in the coming weeks."
Cllr Nesil Caliskan, Leader of Enfield Council said: "Enfield Council is hugely ambitious for Meridian Water - a major £6bn, 20-year London regeneration programme led by Enfield Council, which will bring 10,000 homes and thousands of jobs to Enfield, north London. Meridian Water will be a truly vibrant neighbourhood and new destination to enjoy nightlife, music, theatre, cinema and much more, all year round. Bringing the sheds back into use to deliver high quality leisure, arts and cultural facilities and events is part of our drive to bring life and activity into the area and create a new 24-hour London destination. It also reflects the Council’s commitment to pursue meanwhile use for some sites on Meridian Water so that we generate income for the Council."
Field Day festival will take place at Meridian Water, North London, on Friday 7th and Saturday 8th June 2019. Tickets will go on sale later this month.
