Erykah Badu leads massive Field Day line up for 2018

It's heading to South London for the first time...

Erykah Badu has been announced as the first headliner for Field Day 2018, leading a huge line up that includes the likes of Four Tet, AJ Tracey and Loyle Carner.

The announcement comes after Field Day announced its relocation to South London’s Brockwell Park after 11 years.

Neo-soul icon Badu will headline the first day of the festival on Friday June 1, while the expansive Barn Stage will play host to the likes of Nils Frahm and Four Tet.

Field Day co-founder Tom Baker said: “Im excited about our move south to Brixton and having the historic Brockwell Park as our new home.

“As lots of Londoners know, moving on can be a wrench but is also just a part of life in this amazing city, and we know there’s so much musical history to build on in our new place.

“Since Field Day started in 2007, some might say that London has become festival crazy, there is just so much amazing live music to see, but for us, now more than ever, it’s really key to cut above those that ape you. I feel the Field Day 2018 line up is one of the best yet, its fresh and exciting, cutting edge but has some absolute legends and returning Field Day veterans, its ‘Field Day’… through and through.”

Since the inaugural event in 2007, Field Day has played host to a hugely varied assortments of artists including the likes of Patti Smith, Air, Ride, Slowdive, Bat For Lashes, and Disclosure.
