2017’s Field Day Festival is just on the horizon. And on top of that, it’s their 10-year anniversary! On Saturday 3rd June a wide array of genres will all intertwine at Victoria Park in London. Here are five acts you must see next month.
Kite Base is a project featuring Ayse Hassan, bass player in Savages and fellow bassist Kendra Frost. Together they create electronic brilliance with two basses, vocals and electronics, all melding together to form a craft of pop with organic noise. You can catch them on the Crack Magazine stage, hopefully with a cheeky preview of their debut album.
After her stunning 2015 debut album ‘Unguarded’ and having been gone for a couple of years, Rae Morris is back to play Victoria Park this June. She’s even got her sophomore LP due out soon with the help of Fryars, Ariel Rechtshaid (Haim, Adele), Fred Gibson (Raye, Brian Eno) to name a few.
Combining electronic sounds with acoustics is Esther Joy‘s forté, accompanied by her haunting vocals. You can expect to hear tracks from her forthcoming EP which she’s been working on alongside her nomadic lifestyle, “I’ve wandered quite a bit, lived in a number of cities and towns, put down roots and dug ’em straight back up.”
After parting ways with Franz Ferdinand, it didn’t take long for Nick McCarthy to announce his new project Manuela, working with his wife, Manuela Gernedel. It’s something that’s a polar opposite to what he’s worked on before, and the uniqueness of the sound will make them an intriguing watch at Field Day Festival.
The collaboration of duo Modeselektor and Apparat form Moderat. Twelve years since their first meeting the trio have parted ways and reconvened on multiple occasions. Their pioneering spirit and bass music brilliance will be quite the sight to behold at Victoria Park.
Field Day Festival takes place on June 3, 2017 at Victoria Park in London.
