With just a fortnight to go, Field Day have unveiled a bundle of pre- and after-parties.
The East London festival has teamed up with Red Stripe to present a string of gigs in the week leading up to the two-day event, kicking off this Sunday, June 1, with Houndstooth producer Throwing Snow and his side project Vellico at Shoreditch’s Ace Hotel.
West London kids Only Real and My Sad Captains are booked into the same venue next Tuesday, while Neneh Cherry’s daughter and her group PANES will perform on Thursday.
Up the road at The Shacklewell Arms, electronic pop conceptualist Glasser is joined by Off Love and Summer Ghost on Wednesday, with Groves and Formation DJs on Friday.
The afterparties kick off on Saturday night with a belting line-up at Oval Space led by Innervisions duo Âme with Jackmaster, Daniel Avery, Gerd Janson and Moxie.
Brixton filthmongers Fat White Family will be joined by special guests up at the Shacklewell Arms, and there are more afterparties yet to be announced.
Red Stripe have also just unveiled their Bandstand line-up at the festival, which includes Charli Avery, Jonjo Jury and the Desperate Soundsystem with Steve Mackey of Pulp. For tickets and more information, head to Field Day’s website.
