What are you doing after Field Day?

Once the sun sets on Field Day, you won’t be short of options of where to go next – by the time Sunday rolls around, you could be hearing Four Tet, Romy xx or Warpaint DJ, gearing yourself up for the coolest game of five-a-side football you’ve ever played, or even catching some rest before Applecart, your second festival of the weekend.

The official Field Day after party is taking place in a huge warehouse space in Shoreditch – namely Hearn Street Car Park – and will feature Four Tet, Pearson Sound, James Holden, Caspar C and more.

Other parties going on around town include the Young Turks after party at Basing House, which will see a live set from Koreless, as well as DJ slots from Warpaint, Sampha, Romy xx, Van Rivers and others. Tickets for this one are £5 in advance, and £10 on the door. Eat Your Own Ears are also throwing a post-festival event at the Shacklewell Arms, featuring Ariel Pink live, as well numerous DJ sets, including one from Baio (Vampire Weekend), for £10 in advance.

Elsewhere, the XOYO after-party will keep you going for hours with thumping sets from the likes of Benga, Youngman, Roska and more. Tickets are £9 in advance.

If you fancy something a bit more bracing and traditional, maybe you’d like to head to Boiler Room’s five-a-side football on Sunday. In association with sports giants Umbro, the event, taking place at Haggerston park, will include a barbecue, Boiler Room DJs and a seriously exciting post-footie party for those who stick around (and which will also be streamed live).

There’s more festival fun to be had, though, if you fancy heading back to Victoria Park on Sunday for the wholesome, interactive Applecart festival , which mixes music from the likes of Patrick Wolf and Badly Drawn Boy with magic, cabaret (headlined by Chilly Gonzales) and comedy.

Have you ever wished you could be in two places at once? Or maybe six?

Field Day will take place in Victoria Park on the 6th August.
