“It ain’t nothin’ but a party
The Field Day festival is a single day event that takes place in Victoria Park in Tower Hamlets, London. This event, which takes place in mid June, is loosely based around the concept of an old English village fete giving it a wonderful atmosphere. It was founded in 2007 by Tom Baker who runs a special Field Day radio show in the weeks running up to the party, giving you a taste of what you can expect from this festival.
When it comes to musical reputations, the Field Day is right up there. This party has made a name for itself as somewhere you can catch the next big thing before they break into the mainstream cool. With everything from the most cutting edge names in Dance and Disco through to the New Wave Folk sound that’s never complete without a beard – this is something for everyone, done with a difference.
Expect the hip and happening crowd at the Field Day festival, which has sold out every year since its launch – a true testament to its success. Unlike many other events you can take place in a sack race, a tug of war and other similar old school style events, which can be a great way to meet new faces and friends for the day.
