Another Monday morning rolled around, but it wasn't all doom and gloom, as the latest batch of acts were announced for Field Day 2015. Set to take place in Victoria Park on the 6th & 7th June, the new additions make it even tougher not to buy a ticket.
Following the huge release of Our Love last year, Caribou is set to headline the Saturday, while Chet Faker will make his way from Australia, Madlib will be DJing, and Kindness will hope to bring the same fun vibe his good friend Dev Hynes brought to the proceedings last year. Also previously announced are Jagaara, who I had the pleasure to catch live before Christmas. These three sisters from North London look to be making movements, and should definitely be on your radar.
It may have been the worst kept secret that Run The Jewels were set to make an appearance at the two day festival, but the official confirmation still pleased me. Also announced on the Saturday was critics' darling FKA Twigs, Todd Terje & The Olsens (Full Live Band), Philip Selway (of Radiohead), Fryars, John Talabot, Tune-Yards, Hudson Mohawke, Floating Points (DJ), and Elijah & Skilliam, who are set to bring a little bit of grime to the party.
The Sunday is shaping up nicely too, with Mac DeMarco, Savages, Viet Cong and Hookworms amongst others joining reformed Shoegaze legends Ride, and Patti Smith, who will be performing her seminal album Horses in full on it's 40th anniversary.
The full line up and tickets can be found at Field Day's website here. I know I'm purchasing my ticket for ticket for the Saturday, will anybody be joining me?
