In his only London festival appearance of the summer, international grime sensation SKEPTA will be taking to Field Day’s new north London main stage for a headline show on 7 June 2019. Hailing from nearby Meridian Walk Estate, Tottenham, SKEPTA‘s performance will be a homecoming gig the likes of which London has never seen.
Topping the bill on Saturday will be R&B sensation JORJA SMITH. Her critically-acclaimed debut album Lost & Found has earned her a Grammy-nomination (Best New Artist) and three BRIT nominations (British Female Solo Artist, British Breakthrough Act and Mastercard British Album of the Year) and having already collaborated with the likes of Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Khalid and Stormzy, had her Coachella debut and featured on the Black Panther soundtrack, she has confirmed her position as a global superstar.
So amazing to be playing Field Day this year. I can’t wait to play my first festival headline slot. It’s going to be so much fun!Tom Baker – Field Day co-founder
As part of the first wave of acts, Field Day welcomes a 38 act strong selection of the UK’s favourite underground electronic, indie, rap and jazz-influenced acts across the weekend.
2019 marks an evolution of gigantic proportions as Field Day moves to a groundbreaking new location in North London. Situated next to Tottenham Marshes Field Day is taking over an old gas works, the new location is made up of an enormous ten-acre outdoor space with four giant, interlinked warehouses, the largest of which will be the biggest warehouse venue for music in the city (7,500 cap). The move will allow Field Day to go later than any other festival in London.
Over the past 12 years, Field Day has hosted some of the world’s most iconic artists, alongside the very best in up-and-coming talent including Aphex Twin, Erykah Badu, Patti Smith, Loyle Carner, PJ Harvey and Charlotte Gainsbourg. Having resided in Victoria Park for 10 years, before moving to Brockwell Park last year, Field Day will embark on a new chapter in 2019.
