London Field Day 2012 – Melodic heaven of an alternative nature at Victoria Park.
If you live in London or will be visiting the capital in early June, be sure to leave the 2nd of June free in your calendar free with the intention of attending London Field Day 2012.
Held at Victoria Park in Tower Hamlets, London Field Day is dedicated to filling the park’s 86 hectares of open space with blissful melodies coming from of the most pioneering of contemporary musicians and DJ’s, playing music of an alternative and imaginative nature.
Starting its life as a village fete in 2006, the London Field Day has grown immensely in such a short timeframe and now attracts a crowd of more than 20,000 alternative music enthusiasts to celebrate collectively in one of London’s best kept secrets.
This year’s line-up for London Field Day 2012 promises to be more sensational and alternative than ever, with Com Truise, Beirut, Franz Ferdinand, The Vaccines, Papa M, Tortoise, THE MEN, Outfit, Revere and Peaking Lights – to mention just a few – gracing the grassy banks of Victoria Park with their mystical melodic charms on June the 2nd!
Of course not even the most ‘hard-core’ of music festival attendees could possibly last a whole day engrossed in watching their favourite artists perform live under the (usually) warm June sun in London without taking some ‘time out’ for a gastric refreshment.
Also in attendance at the London Field Day 2012 festival will be Clapham Common’s delightful Venn Street Market, providing Field Day revellers with some truly delicious cuisine. From a Hog Roast from the award-winning butcher Moen & Sons, to authentic Creole Fish Cakes and Banana Fritters from Yam the Cassava, this year’s Field Day Festival’s culinary delights really will complement the harmonious sounds drifting from Victoria Park’s stages.
Organised by Eat Your Own Ears, Bugged Out!, Bloggers Delight, and Lanzarote and Village Mentality, London Field Day is a celebration of all that is “bold, daring, innovative and imaginative, in the world of alternative music.”
