Field Day 2014 – festival previewField Day 2014

Victoria Park, London

June 7th – 8th 

Field Day festival’s just round the corner and again it’s boasting a stellar lineup. Via a dozen videos of artists performing there, all chosen by Louder Than War’s Keith Goldhanger, we attempt the scratch the surface of some of the bands taking part. A full written preview will be forthcoming soon.

A festival, in a field, down the bloody road so some of us can actually sleep in our own beds … yeah!!!!!!!!! – (Although sitting in the Garden talking bollocks all night and limping in for the second day is a more realistic reality).

Field day is back and there’s loads of our favourite bands playing (here’s a tip – arrive early, don’t just turn up late afternoon ‘cos this line up, as was last year’s line up, is a strong one) on loads of stages collated by some of our favourite promoters in the capital that over the past few years have been trusted to know their shit when it comes to getting events like this together.

Metronomy, East India Youth Pixies, Horrors … oh look I could go on for pages … here’s their web site … it looks ace:

And here’s a dozen artists that you know already we will be drooling over and watching for maybe the first time, maybe not the last time and definitely for the second third or forth time (this year, even) in some cases. — Hit play, get your oyster cards topped up and scratch your heads wondering where the camp site is (there isn’t one).














That Field Day website once again: Also check them out on Facebook and they tweet as @fielddaylondon.

Keith Goldhanger -- Spent the 90's as a frontman with London noisemerchants HEADBUTT - spent the 80's in "Peel favourites" BASTARD KESTREL. Spent a few years mashing up tunes and remixing bands as HIDEOUS WHEEL INVENTION. Is often out and about getting in the way of things and bumping his head on low ceilings - drinks real ale, takes photo's has made a few short films. Will give your band the time of day but will dislike any band that balances full pints of alcohol on the top of guitar amps (Not keen on lead singers that wear hats either).
