Field Day Festival 2016 | First Wave of Acts

On 11th and 12th of June 2016, Field Day Festival returns to Victoria Park for its tenth year, with Dusky, DJ Koze, Floating Points, Four Tet, KiNK, Skepta, Mount Kimble and more.

From its early inception back in 2007, Field Day has evolved across two days, heightened its levels of production, expanded its culinary and extra-curricular activities, yet always remained true to its core values – impeccably curated music at the heart of everything it does is.

Long time friend of the festival Four Tet play a key slot on the Eat Your Own Ears Main Stage.One of the UK’s most dedicated club DJs, capable of holding a room in sweaty excelsis for eight hours without pause. Floating Points has won over crowds around the world with his strictly vinyl club sessions, spanning, house, techno, soul and disco, steadily climbing the ranks of the globes most impressive DJ’s.

Renowned for their beautifully blissed out sound, London duo Mount Kimbie come to Field Day on the Saturday and will be joining DJ Koze who was recently selected to mix the 50th edition of !K7’s seminal DJ Kicks series. Also joining Saturday’s bill will be the dynamic house duo Dusky, who in just three years have asserted themselves as leaders of the UK underground.

One of the biggest names in the German electronic music scene and part of the Robert Johnson family, Roman Flügel is also on Saturday’s line-up. A chameleon visiting many styles from ambient to house, techno, electro and left field. Hailing from Sofia, Bulgaria, Kink’s an enigma in many different forms and will perform one of his much-lauded live sets at Field Day.

Special Request, the rugged alias for house and techno stalwart Paul Woolford is inspired by the unruly conventions of UK pirate radio stations, with productions span from murky house through darkside techno to chaotic eye-of-the-storm hardcore/jungle tear-outs.

All-conquering grime superstar Skepta graces Victoria Park with his presence as he continues to bring grime kicking and screaming into 2016. A new album imminent with a reportedly all star cast of collaborators, his ascendancy continues at pace.
