A Virtual Festivals preview of the East London festival

Our guide to two perfect Field Days

Photographer: Peter CorkhillVirtual Festivals on 03 June 2014

Field Day have this week released stage times for the festival, which you can see here. Once you have that in hand then check out our guide to spending a weekend in one of East London's finest green parks.

Saturday June 7

Looking for a hearty lunch? There's just one place to try: Bagel on the Park. Along Gore Road, at the northern tip of Victoria Park, this local gem has been fuelling revellers in the scenic greenery of Victoria Park for years.

Looking for a little more style and substance for lunch? Try The Morgan Arms, a traditional pub just off Grove Road and less than 15 minutes from the festival.

16:20 Sohn

Musician and songwriter Christopher Taylor has been working rather anonymously from Vienna since 2010, writing and working with the likes of Kwabs and BANKS. Now his 4AD debut 'Tremors', released under the monikor Sohn last month, has witnessed a rather organic interest growing in the South Londoner, and with good reason too.


17:00 Teleman

If you thought the ashes of the much maligned indie outfit Pete and the Pirates would be dead and dried out then think again. Teleman are the intel-pop phoenix rising and making a new bid for musical freedom, and for that reason alone they're worthy of your time.

18:45 Warpaint

Returning to Field Day for the first time since 2011, Warpaint have fallen deeper into their dream-pop aesthetic with this year's self-titled follow-up to their 2010 debut LP 'The Fool'. Catch the Californian four-piece for their first UK festival performance of 2014, ahead of Glastonbury, Reading and Leeds later this summer.


20:55 Tourist

London's William Phillips has whipped up a small whirlwind in his effort to start 2014 on a high. Buoyed no doubt by signing on to Disclosure’s Method label, last month's 'Patterns' EP featured guest vocals from Lianne La Havas and for fans of SBTRKT, Klangkarussell and Disclosure he is an essential addition to the record collection.

10:30 - 6am: Official After Party, Oval Space, 29-32 The Oval, E2 9DT

Catch Ame, Jackmaster, Daniel Avery, Gerd Janson and Moxie mixing it up hard until 6am.

Sunday June 8

Regal Boat Hire

Recover from The Horrors and any achy heads still haunting from the Saturday night by taking one boat from a fleet of 40 out on a blissful spin on Victoria Park's West Lake, available from 11am to 5pm - come rain or shine. A great way to burn off breakfast and prepare for another long day of music at Field Day 2014.

14:50 The Wytches

Heavenly Recordings signed trio The Wytches have been causing a delightful earache since their formation back in 2011. This year should finally see the release of their long awaited debut 'Annabel Dream Reader', scheduled for release in August - get your preview this weekend.

16:00 POND

Liking The Wytches before them, POND have been holding the mantle for psych-rock power in recent years but only now emerging from the shadow of fellow Aussie groove giants Tame Impala, a band who share three members with POND. How incestial.

20:00 Future Islands

The hottest hot thing since Partridge's microwave-baked apple pie. Future Islands will have you jigging in trousers but never taking your eyes of crooning frontman Samuel T. Herring. Believe.


21:00 Pixies

Boston's best known rock export, Pixies have made a career from non-definable noise and feverish punk angst. Now in their second bow and approaching the 50 mark, with or without Kim Deal, they're still cooler than every band you like.

There are still tickets for Field Day on sale.

Day tickets to see Pixies on Sunday June 8 are priced at £43.50, which includes a £5 booking fee. Tickets for Saturday 7 June are priced at £54.50 plus a £5 booking fee.
