    Field Day announced their early line-up for this year's festival yesterday Line-up | Field Day Festival | Weekend of Saturday 2nd June 2018
    I was a bit surprised to see that it's reverting back to a 2 day festival this year. Last year it was just one day, as it was for its first few years, but before that for a couple of years or more it had been held over 2 days. Apart from the fact they want to sell more tickets, I guess the reduced size of the festival site at Brockwell Park means that they'll have too many acts and not enough stages for them all to play on the same day.

    I went last year, mainly because Aphex Twin was on, but there were plenty of other acts I wanted to see too. I thought it worked well last year, although for me the site was a little too spread out end to end (took about 10 mins to walk) but that did help to spread the crowds out, which was nice. I can't see that happening in Brockwell.

    I'd already made my mind up that I won't go to it this year, even before they announced it was moving from Victoria Park, but the fact it's moving to Brockwell would be enough to put me off anyway, as I don't think it's suitable for it (especially in view of what I read about Sunfall last year). I also think the line-up (so far at least) is pretty uninspiring compared to last year, but no doubt the kiddies will flock to it.

    I'd have thought Field Day would be more suited to Clapham Common, which is pretty much the same size as Victoria Park. Can anyone think of any reason why it couldn't be held there? - there's been plenty of big music events there before.

    I'm sorry I'm baffled.
    the license application clearly says
    but there are 4 Event Days applied for, with two separate events: FD on the Friday & Saturday and Mighty Hoopla on the Sunday. So why is there a Thursday application when there's 'up to' 3 Event Days? How come the MH can take place when it doesn't include a Saturday, how can there be two (or more) Events when there is a maximum of 1?

    Reading the FD website I notice that they're saying Herne Hill station will be open. We were told at the public meeting it would be shut :confused:

    The Lovebox line-up has been announced:

    Friday’s lineup includes Skepta, Anderson .Paak, Mabel, DAVE, Jacob Banks, Vince Staples, Bicep, Floorplan, Jackmaster, Peggy Gou, Kerri Chandler, Motor City Drum Ensemble and Moxie.

    Saturday sees Childish Gambino, Pharrell Williams with N*E*R*D, The Internet, Big Boi, Mura Masa, Action Bronson, Jon Hopkins, Denis Sulta, Solardo, Mall Grab, Camelphat and Green Velvet perform. ​

    Pity, it's a cracking line-up. I think it would have gone down far better with the Brixton crowd than the Field Day one.
