Having announced The Pixies last week Field Day now announce the first set of acts for Field Day Saturday 7th June including the mighty Metronomy as headliners.
Field Day welcome back to the main stage the melancholic electronic tones of Metronomy where Spring 2014 sees their highly awaited return with their brilliant new album ‘Love Letters’.
“I’m very, very excited (about playing Field Day). It’s the first time we’ve officially headlined a festival so it’s a big deal for us…It was a really, really nice experience last time so we are very much looking forward to it” Metronomy’s Joe Mount says.
Listen here to a very special Field Day Radio episode hosted by Field Day co-founder Tom Baker, featuring exclusive interviews with Metronomy’s Joe Mount and Omar Souleyman.
