The Field Day 2018 lineup is here and it looks incredible

05 February 2018, 09:31 | Written by Laurence Day

Field Day 2018 has announced a huge wave of artists, with UK exclusives Erykah Badu and Fever Ray leading the way.

Four Tet, Nils Frahm, Thundercat, Tony Allen, Floating Points, Princess Nokia, Mount Kimbie, Loyle Carner, and lots more have also been announced in the 70-strong list of names.

Field Day takes place at a new home in Brockwell Park this year, expanding from last year's one-dayer back up to a two-day bash. The Barn, launched at 2017's fest, returns for the Saturday.

"I'm excited about our move south to Brixton and having the historic Brockwell Park as our new home," says the festival's co-founder Tom Baker. "As lots of Londoners know moving on can be a wrench but is also just a part of life in this amazing city, and we know there's so much musical history to build on in our new place. Since Field Day started in 2007, some might say that London has become festival crazy, there is just so much amazing live music to see, but for us, now more than ever, it's really key to cut above those that ape you. I feel the Field Day 2018 lineup is one of the best yet, it's fresh and exciting, cutting edge but has some absolute legends and returning Field Day veterans, its 'Field Day’… through and through."
