Field Day 2013: Five to See

13 May 2013, 15:55 | Written by The Line of Best Fit


Every year Field Day delivers an utterly unparalleled line-up and despite threats of rain, the stress of line-up clashes and general madness we can never resist its charms. This year not only promises a headline set from Bat For Lashes but appearances from Chvrches, Clean Bandit, Daphni, Feathers, Guards, Savages and Solange. And on top of all of these we’ve picked our favourites: The five we definitely recommend catching.

Mount Kimbie

With the follow up to 2010′s Crooks & Lovers coming out next month, Dominic Maker and Kai Campos continue to explore all the subtleties electronic music has to offer with their warm, serene and challenging offerings.

Kurt Vile

As if we needed further proof that Kurt Vile was master of all things Americana, this year’s Wakin On A Pretty Daze sealed the deal for the Philadelphia guitarist and we can’t wait to see him prove it all over again in Victoria Park.


We’ve seen Surrey siblings Guy and Howard Lawrence own entire arean’s before, so we expect to see a whole field at the mercy of their fractured beats.

East India Youth

London man William Doyle came to our attention via our friend’s at The Quietus and hasn’t really dropped off our radar since. His work as East India Youth on the at-times euphoric, often-bleak, droning atmospherics of Hostel EP has produced some of the most original tracks we’ve wrapped our ears around this side of the New Year and we don’t want to stop.

Four Tet

What better way to end an evening than with the messed up electronics of Kieran Hebden. Having closed out last year with Gold Panda we’re looking forward to seeing in the wee hours with Four Tet.

Now we’ve whet your appetite for what to expect, how do you fancy winning a pair of tickets?

Simply email with the subject line FIELD DAY BEST FIT along with your name and a contact telephone number. We will pick a name at random and announce the winner on Wednesday 22 May. Good luck!

Field Day takes place on 25 May at Victoria Park in East London. Head here for the full line-up and more info.
