Skepta and Jorja Smith to Headline Field Day 2019
The first wave of acts for 2019's Field Day have been announced with the likes of Diplo, Bonobo, Earl Sweatshirt and The Black Madonna set to play alongside Skepta and Jorja Smith
Field Day is set to return this summer to its brand new home in North London, Merdian Water. The brand new location has never been used before and features four massive warehouses and a ten-acre expansive outdoor space, and today the festival has announced the first wave of its stacked line-up.
Topping the bill are grime superstar Skepta and Grammy-nominated R'n'B singer Jorja Smith. The former's appearance is something of a homecoming for the London rapper, who grew up nearby the festival's new home.
Elsewhere, the line-up includes an eclectic mix of electronic, indie and hip-hop acts such as Pusha T, Deerhunter, Julia Holter, Todd Terje, Kelly Lee Owens, Marie Davidson, The Black Madonna and Modeselektor.
Of the announcement, Field Day co-founder Tom Baker says: "This really is a new and exciting chapter for Field Day, our new home is arguably one of the most dynamic sites in the country, with a line-up that is typically eclectic and diverse as ever before. I'm thrilled about the return of Skepta who back in 2016 played to one of the biggest crowds we’ve ever had at Field Day; Saturday's headliner the brilliant Jorja Smith will be truly sensational; Diplo’s sets are just absolute dance frenzied seamless brilliance, alongside rising artists Pip Blom, MorMor, Boy Azooga and the return of Deerhunter with an excellent new album… Working with purpose-built indoor venues with generous sound levels and early morning curfews is what London truly deserves."
