The one-day festival of musical delight Field Day is making its return to Victoria Park.

The festival, which kicks off at 11.30am on Saturday, June 3, will see the return of the ever-popular Village Mentality. The quirky fete will be themed around the idea of doubles this year, so get ready for a mirrored relay race, becoming a human double decker and plenty of other weird and wonderful amusements.

The festival will also be introducing a brand new indoor main stage area called The Barn, which will see shows from Aphex Twin, Nina Kraviz, Nicholas Jaar and more.


There are still some tickets available for Field Day. The remaining tickets are priced at £71.95 and you must be 18 or over to buy them. Last entry to the park is 8.30pm and the festival finishes at 11pm.


The Field Day organisers are fitting a whole lot of music into just one day, with performances from acts including headliner Aphex Twin, poet Dr John Cooper Clarke, Run the Jewels, Rae Morris, King Glizzard and the Lizard Wizard and many, many more.

The Weather

The good news is that the weather for Saturday, June 3, is set to be sunny and dry, with temperatures reaching a maximum of 20 degrees and keeping warm into the evening.

The bad news is that a yellow warning for rain has been issued by the Met Office for Friday, June 2, with torrential rain and thunderstorms predicted in London and the surrounding areas between 1pm and 11pm.

So although it may stay dry on the day itself, wellies are likely to come in handy.
