Field Day 2019 Preview
This year, Field Day has moved to its new home in North London, The Drumfields. It features 10 acres of outdoor space and four gigantic interlinking warehouses just a few minute’s walk from the new Meridian Water train station.
Open until 3am, yes you read that right a festival in London going to 3am at the biggest music warehouse venue in London. Field Day have claimed they will be putting on London’s loudest festival with state-of-the art production and sound quality. As festival-goers we can expect a metropolitan festival experience like no other. With its immense scale and dynamic format, The Drumsheds will break the mould of traditional London venues, bringing a truly unique new destination to the city and offering festival-goers an experience to rival Europe’s most revered music arenas, but with the option of getting the tube or night bus home. Developed in partnership with Enfield and Meridian Water, the UK’s largest regeneration project, a £6bn investment will transform the site into a thriving hub of creativity – you’ve still got to pay for your Field Day ticket.
Lined-up for Friday, man like Skepta headlines the main stage for the only London festival performance of his new album, Ignorance is Bliss. Have you heard it yet? If not, why no? It’s lit! Another big name, Bonobo takes over the Printworks stage with his critically acclaimed Outlier show. Crack host Berlin techno-duo Modeselektor live, and Erol Alkan delivers the goods for BULLDOG Gin Yard. After-hours, Maya Jones Coles presents Nocturnal Sunshine to close day 1.
Saturday at Field Day looks just as good as day 1 with Jorja Smith headlining the main stage with her debut London festival headline performance – big tings! The Black Madonna takes on the Printworks stage while Boiler Room welcomes Octavian, JPEGMAFIA and Flohio for their first London show. BULLDOG Gin Yard in association with Bugged Out! hosts Todd Terje and team before Mella Dee is joined by Denis Sulta, Tiga and HAAi to close off Field Day 2019 at the Late Night after party.
