More sterling names for Field Day 2013.
US garage bigwig Todd Edwards is the biggest of the new acts. The New Jersey producer, known for his vocal cut-ups and ear for swing, is a one-man institution, and should prove a stand-out on the day. Two of Night Slugs’ biggest stars, Bok Bok & Girl Unit, will be teaming up for a live session. The former is one of the most reliable genre-melders in the game; the latter, last heard on the corking Club Rez EP, manages to combine dancefloor muscle with a pop sensibility. Fans of the above will be cheered by the news that Oneman – Rinse FM regular and all-round party catalyst – will also be stopping by, and UK funky luminary Lil Silva will be bringing his armoury of ruff, tuff sounds. Further additions include Ben Pearce, buzzy combo Clean Bandit, Feathers, Psychemagik, Jen Long, Jon Hillcok and Waze & Odyssey.
They join the likes of Objekt, Throwing Snow, Lee Gamble, Koreless, TNGHT, Disclosure, Animal Collective, Jacques Greene, Julio Bashmore, How To Dress Well and Karenn. Field Day takes place on May 25 at London’s Victoria Park – head here for tickets and further information.
