Field Day line-up bolstered by new additions

Field Day have just announced a new batch of names for the line-up – further bolstering the likelihood of this being the festival’s biggest year to date. The festival – which Dummy recently became official media partners with – will return to Victoria Park on the 25th May.

Perhaps the biggest draw among the new names is Solange, who will join headliners Animal Collective and Bat For Lashes on the bill. Other announcements include Dummy favourites Mount Kimbie, comic book artist and nuanced pop crafter Amateur Best, psychedelic New Zealander Connan Mockasin, and post-punk poet legend John Cooper Clarke.

Head to Soundcloud for episode 6 of Field Day Radio, including tracks from the new acquisitions. Episode 7 is due next week, and will feature interviews with confirmed acts Chvrches and Mulatu Astatke. See how the bill is now shaping up below, and head to Ticketweb to book your ticket.
