London's finest one-day festival that is Field Day has unloaded the first batch of artists to grace its line-up for 2010, including the most-excellent French electronic-rock combo Phoenix - who are the first headliners to be announced - and the, arguably, even more excellent Dan Snaith, alias Caribou.
The initial bill includes the following 'acts':
Beth Jeans Houghton
Corsano And Flowers
Esben & The Witch
Hypnotic Brass Ensemble
Joker & MC Nomad
Mouse On Mars
Pantha Du Prince
This year's Field Day takes place on Saturday July 31 in the same place it did the previous three years - London's Victoria Park. Tickets, currently, are on sale for £33.33 plus that all important booking fee. Tickets and more info are available from here.
Tom Baker (no, not that one) of Eat Your Own Ears and booker for Field Day says:
"We are delighted to be back now in our fourth year, incredible how time flies; it seems so long ago that Field Day began. I am really excited to have Phoenix headline, a great live band and a band that will get you dancing and singing... The rest of the bill is really shaping up, there are so many great albums out in 2010, it feels like an exciting time for music..."
Yes Tom. It does. Last year's line-up was pretty special. Let's hope the weather is actually in a less grumpy mood this time, eh, and I can finally put on some shorts.
