Festival Line-Up Update: Field Day, Festival No 6, Beatherder and more

By | Published on Thursday 6 March 2014

Field Day

First in the FLUU line this fine day is Field Day, which is really a weekend in a park. The newly extended inner-city festival, which this year is headlined by Metronomy and Pixies, has named its latest hired acts as Jamie xx, and tipped freshers Jamie Isaac, Eyedress and Tourist.

Giving a brief history of Jamie xx’s relationship with the event, Field Day founder Tom Baker says: “I’m really pleased to add another wave of acts to Field Day; Jamie xx has been a Field Day favourite over the years, he played back in 2011, and some of you might remember an early afternoon, small stage set with The xx back in 2009 before they shot to fame”.

More on Field Day’s latest crop, plus details of the first phase of acts added to Wales’s Beck/London Grammar-headlined Festival No 6, not to mention updates to the line-ups at Lancashire rave Beatherder, Irish indie destination Longitude, roving punk parties Hit The Deck and Slam Dunk, and Oxfordshire’s super-good Supernormal fest is all still to follow…
