Preview: Field Day 2012

By on Monday, 23rd January 2012 at 9:00 am

London’s favourite indie festival, Field Day, is back for another year in Victoria Park this summer (the 2nd of June) and the lineup couldn’t be hotter. Despite only being a 1-day festival, Eat Your Own Ears have crammed in a huge number of bands and artists across the whole day on different-sized stages. Although the exact placing and timings of performers hasn’t yet been announced, headlining the all-day extravaganza are the Scottish indie-rock crowd-pleasers Franz Ferdinand (pictured above, many moons ago). With a new album slated for release later this year, expect a raucous display of fan favourites like ‘Take Me Out’ with a splattering of new material.

But if those album chart-botherers aren’t your thing, don’t despair, there’s something for everyone. The synthesized specialists Metronomy will make a sun-soaked appearance in London, giving their 2011 LP ‘The English Riveira’ a good summertime airing. But of course there’s more. Radio1 favourites the Vaccines, electro wizard Hudson Mohawke, American folkster Andrew Bird, IDM extraordinaire Gold Panda, Californian dream poppers Mazzy Star, indie’s current hot property Spector and many more.

Tickets for Field Day are now on sale via the official Field Day Web site and other ticket outlets. Early bird tickets are currently priced at £39.50 (not including booking charges, etc.) For more information and for further lineup announcements, visit the official Web site.
