Preview: Field Day @ Victoria Park [London, 3rd June 2017]

FD17_web-square_170424_full23b

Field Day Festival returns for its 11th year this coming June. Held in Victoria Park, East London as has become its tradition, this time however it will take place on the Saturday only, rather than lasting for two days as it has in the past.

Fear not though, as despite the festival being shorter, a brand new stage has been added to the roster this year. Called ‘The Barn’, it is a gigantic indoor stage that will concur with the main one, having state of the art lighting rigs and a high-powered sound system. And if that is not enough, it will be headlined by Aphex Twin, for one of his very rare live performances, as well as hosting an electronic only line-up with acts such as Nicolas Jaar and Nina Kraviz.

There is something for every taste this year: from Syrian dance sensation Omar Souleyman to the rock of Slowdive, from Algerian Imarhan to Londoners Loyle Carner, Gaika and Mura Masa, from hip hop to pop and experimental, and as always; a very good food selection to enjoy between performances.

Interview: Sinkane (February 2017)

There is this trademark groovy, danceable, lightness to Sinkane’s songs that make them either deeply political music, in the same vein as Fela Kuti for example, or the music of a Mozart of our times, a bourgeois genius producing songs that amaze those who are both refined and style savvy….
