Field Day is a brand new summer event bringing together the cream of London’s alternative concert and club promoters to the East End’s greenest of gardens Victoria Park.
Expect a day of incredible music, dancing and maximum hoopla set in London’s heartland. Music is the main driver but It will have all the charm of a village fete and if you don’t even catch a band you would still have a great time.

It is brought to you by London’s leaders and lovers of the leftfield: Eat Your Own Ears, Adventures In The Beetroot Field, Bugged Out! and Homefires; who have come together to bring you the most cutting edge line up of emerging bands and  DJ’s. The track record of these event promoters proves that cutting edge music and wild parties are not mutually exclusive.
The hottest line up of bands include Scotlands freshest talent-1990’s, The Aliens, the ever foot stomping Erol Alkan and Jo Jo De Freq. The legend that is Andrew Weatherall will also be performing alongside a sizzling summer line up that includes Metronomy, Foals and Bat For Lashes amongst others. Critically acclaimed post-rock outfit Fridge will be playing their first live gig for 6 years featuring the formidable Four Tet and Adem (who also both play live) who will make a rare outing to deliver a set of new material from their forthcoming album, alongside some older tracks.
This line up of hot new things presents to you a summer fete of the best home grown talent. With special line up announcements to follow shortly, it really is the prize-winning icing on the village cake.

Expect this boutique, intimate event –with a capacity of 5000 – to have the atmosphere of a psychedelic village fete, with a ceiledh, bunting, hay bales, hog roasts and Tombola as well as the four main music stages, and expect eccentric, fun East End turns from Victoria Parks' band stand.

"Having announced Field Day there seems to be a really positive and exciting buzz about the event. We are really happy with the line up and are now working on making the Village Fete vibe come alive with Morris Men, A Barn Dance, Bunting, some traditional fair rides, locally sourced food and much more…" Tom Baker – Eat Your Own Ears

Eat Your Own Ears presents 

LIGHT SPEED CHAMPION featuring very special guests




Former Test Icicles front man, Dev Hynes plays London's 229 as Lightspeed Champion on the 19th of  July with some very special guests.

Spare, alluring instrumental sounds and thoughtful lyrics with crude track titles, Lightspeed Champion's songs are a dichotomy of dark and light, salty and sweet. The semi-acoustic, country-rock and folk-pop sound can perhaps be explained by the album's origins in Omaha Nebraska, where it was produced by Saddle Creek records' Mike Mogis,

Working alongside members of The Faint, Cursive and Tilly And The Wall, and featuring guest vocalist Emmy The Great (who will also be providing support at 229), the album (Galaxy Of The Lost", released by Domino on July 16) is a catchy autobiography, lighter sounding and more reflective than Hynes other projects to date.
