Festival review: Field Day 2012
Share This Article:
Holy shit someone’s invented a weather machine! Well, that's what it felt like at this year’s Field Day! In that one wonderful day in Victoria Park in London we witnessed every weather possible... The "summer" weather was as diverse as the acts on offer at the fourth installment of a festival that has gained respect for its eclectic mix of break-through acts and established artists that 6Music listeners would approve of. With this years line up, there was something for everyone, even if you hadn't heard of them. Here’s the run down of some highlights of Field Day 2012: Crocodiles Didn't know too much about them but then recognised "Endless Flowers", which is now constantly being played on the radio. And quite rightly too, fantastic band and great set of session musicians. Atmospheric, fun and perfect festival material. Liars Hadn't heard much of these either but these suave Dave Grohl look-a-likes can make a great sound. Hard to describe but its sort of mesmerising... if only they had been on as it was getting dark enabling them to have a light show! Metronomy
