We are thrilled to welcome the supremely talented Rae Morris to Field Day 2015. Her stunning and critically acclaimed debut album ‘Unguarded’, released last month, has already garnered huge support across the industry, fans and press, making her one of the most relevant, exciting new artists to come out of the UK right now.
Also on board are Field Day alumni Spector, who will bring the modern pop noir sounds of their highly anticipated upcoming second album to Victoria Park; as well as the adventurous New York hip-hop trioRatking, who mix youthful hardcore energy, pure NY beats and rhymes with Cali punk rock and Detroit techno, whilst staying defiantly underground.
Also confirmed for Field Day Saturday are global electronic collective Future Brown with their time-bending, space shrinking, glossy post-human sound, whose highly anticipated new album is out this week on Warp Records; as well as Soundcloud-famous Worcestershire electro-crooner Astronomyy.
Meanwhile, We Are Shining, the British duo who have been in the studio with Kanye, collaborated with FKA Twigs and specialise in apocalyptic atmosphere with foreboding vocals, big beats and frantic electric guitar solos have also been confirmed, alongside hotly-tipped electronic band Hælos with their breathtaking vocal harmonies, and the brilliant radical funkateer Clarence Clarity, a kind of funky Ariel Pink.
We are thrilled to announce new sensational DJ additions to the Field Day Saturday line up. Joining the likes of Nina Kraviz, Madlib, Ben Klock and Marcel Dettman are Norwegian producer Cashmere Cat; Night Slugs co-founder and ‘rhythm & grime’ producer Bok Bok, sublime bedroom composer-programmerMax Tundra, Swedish beatmaker Yung Gud, as well as London’s wildest new club soundtrackerMssingNo. Plus expect epic sets from DJ Barely Legal, Danny L Harle, AG Cook and Shanti Celeste!
Already a Field Day tradition, we are honoured to welcome back the Farnborough Concert Band, who will be, once again, entertaining the Field Day crowds with their exceptional take on anything from Britney Spears to Adele and our very own Patti Smith! The brilliant Hackney Colliery Band, with their tongue-in-cheek nod to the great tradition of British brass bands, are also on board again, mixing rock, afro-beat, hip hop, Balkan beats and contemporary jazz and soul…we absolutely cannot wait to have these two great brass bands at Field Day again!

Leeds punk quintet Eagulls have become synonymous with a discontented, disillusioned kind of anger reflected in their brilliant self-titled critically acclaimed 2014 debut album as well as their chaotic and confrontational live shows, going from early support slots with the likes of Iceage and Fucked up to Jesus and The Mary Chain, Suede, Manic Street Preachers, as well as extensive tours in their own right. We are very excited to have them at Field Day this year!
Also confirmed for Field Day Sunday are Washington DC power trio Ex Hex, who make bold and brash punk meets glam rock, power pop; enigmatic London duo Pale, who have been attracting global attention for their seductive melancholic sound, as well as Liverpudlian band Gulf, creators of a melting pot of pop, psychedelia, disco and anything in between.
