It will be a homecoming for Field Day which started its evolution in Victoria Park before moving to south London’s Brockwell Park ahead of a year at The Drumsheds north of the river. Saturday’s APE Presents show will be headlined by Jamie xx and Kano with more shows plus a community-focused event, In The Neighbourhood, to be revealed.
Field Day Co-Owner, Gareth Cooper said “We couldn’t be more excited to be bringing Field Day back to its spiritual home of Victoria Park, where it all started 14 years ago. We are going to deliver the best day out of the summer, in one of London’s best parks, with an amazing crowd, a top top music lineup led from the front by the brilliant Bicep. It’s gonna be ace. We cannot wait to partner up with APE on presenting this show and provide some hope and excitement to finish off what’s been an awful 12 months. The future starts today!”
Jim King, CEO of European Festivals at AEG Presents, added: “Field Day have been friends of ours for many years and coming together and working with them on APE Present Field Day stands for everything good that is emerging from these challenging times. We respect what they do and we align so closely with what they stand for and so it’s a great feeling to be able to welcome them back to Victoria Park where they delivered so many amazing shows. They have a great line up headlined by the incredible Bicep and the larger capacity that APE offers means more fans will be able to see Field Day deliver what they do so well.”
