Field Day isn’t just a day. It’s a field day. That’s why they call it that. If you like music, and you go along, you’ll be having a field day. It’s a day of great excitement, particularly being so early on in the festival season. We particularly look forward to the first taste of grass in our beer, but by the way the lineup’s looking so far, that’s not all we have to look forward to. In fact, with so many amazing bands and artists on the bill, it looks like clashes will feature this year, perhaps even more than ever. Trust us, that’s saying something — being only a day, Field Day’s lineup’s known for being jam-packed.

Here’s what those lovely people behind the festival have on offer for you so far.

Animal Collective / Bat For Lashes / Amateur Best / Charlie Boyer & The Voyeurs / Connan Mockasin / Chvrches / Daphni / Dark Dark Dark / Daughter / Disclosure / Django Django / Do Make Say Think / Egyptian Hip Hop / Emeralds / Everything Everything / Four Tet / Francois & The Atlas Mountains / F**ked Up / Ginger Baker Jazz Confusion / Hessle Audio DJs: Ben UFO, Pangaea, Pearson Sound / How To Dress Well / Jacques Greene / James Yorkston / John Cooper Clarke / Julio Bashmore / Karenn / Kurt Vile / Mount Kimbie /  Mulatu Astatke / Palma Violets / Savages / Seth Troxler / Shed / Solange / Splashh / Stubborn Heart / Thomas Mapfumo / Tim Burgess / TNGHT / Virals / Vondelpark / Wild Nothing
