Field Day: Sleaford Mods, Novelist, Bicep & More Announced

Art & Culture

Field Day have released the second wave of artists booked to play the two day event in 2016. In keeping with the festival's ethos, the acts are taken from the cream of the underground, with everyone from New York experimentalists Yeasayer to slinky deep house craftsmen Tale Of Us welcome to the party. There's also particular good news for lovers of angry shouty men; angry, shouty middle aged grumps Sleaford Mods are playing on the same day as angry, shouty teenage grime grump Novelist – we would genuinely love to see them all get together and do a song about what a bumfaced turd David Cameron is. Make it happen Field Day. Before you go perusing the list of new names, you probably need to know that tickets and more information are available over here.
