The first acts have been revealed for Field Day, which takes place on a new site at Meridian Water, Enfield, North London, on Friday 7th and Saturday 8th June 2019.
headlining on the Friday and making his only London appearance of the summer is Skepta, while the Saturday headliner is Jorja Smith.
Featured across the weekend are acts including Diplo, London soulsters Jungle, hip-hop heavyweight Pusha T, cult rap hero Earl Sweatshirt, master producer Leon Vynehall, the genre-bending Deerhunter, and multi-talented dreampop composer Julia Holter. Within the new warehouse stages will be Bonobo curating his Outlier project, German electronic stalwarts Modeselektor, The Black Madonna, BBC Essential Mix 2018 winner HAAi, George Fitzgerald (live), and Seth Troxler.
Friday includes new indie favourites Pip Blom, Boy Azooga, and Australian art rockers Methyl Ethel, while on the Saturday are BBC Sound of 2019 winner Octavian, and political commentator and rap powerhouse JPEGMAFIA. Others across the weekend are Denis Sulta, and Erol Alkan.
Speaking about her first-ever Field Day and festival headline performance, Jorja Smith said: "So amazing to be playing Field Day this year. I can't wait to play my first festival headline slot. It's going to be so much fun!"
Speaking about the line-up, Field Day co-founder Tom Baker said: "This really is a new and exciting chapter for Field Day, our new home is arguably one of the most dynamic sites in the country, with a line up that is typically eclectic and diverse as ever before. I'm thrilled about the return of Skepta who back in 2016 played to one of the biggest crowds we've ever had at Field Day, Saturday's headliner the brilliant Jorja Smith will be truly sensational, Diplo's sets are just absolute dance frenzied seamless brilliance, alongside rising artists Pip Blom, MorMor, Boy Azooga and the return of Deerhunter with an excellent new album…. Working with purpose-built indoor venues with generous sound levels and early morning curfews is what London truly deserves."
Tickets are sold as 'day and night' tickets which give access to the warehouse parties until 3am, or as 'Day' tickets which are until 10.30pm. It would be useful to know which of these the acts are playing, eh? They're not saying, yet.
