Field Day organisers start petition to get Jimmy Page to perform with Run The Jewels

Led Zeppelin guitarist first met duo at the NME Awards 2015 with Austin, Texas

Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page could be teaming up with rap duo Run The Jewels, after the two acts met at this year’s NME Awards with Austin, Texas.

Hip-hop pair El-P and Killer Mike performed at the awards ceremony, which was held at the O2 Academy Brixton in south London last month (February 18), later meeting the legendary musician backstage. Speaking to NME at the time, Run The Jewels joked that they wanted to “kidnap” Page.

Now the organisers of Field Day festival have revealed that they’re plotting to unite Jimmy Page and Run The Jewels live on stage. Field Day have set up a Facebook event called ‘Can we get Jimmy Page (Led Zeppelin) to guest with Run the Jewels at Field Day 2015?!’

The organisers write: “After that picture of Jimmy Page and Run the Jewels at the NME Awards appeared in February, we got to thinking – what if they really would come to together to form the best super-group of 2015? So here we are, asking for you to help us make the dream come true! Spread the word to help make Field Day 2015 a year to remember.”

Run The Jewels were recently announced as among the acts set to perform at Field Day, which takes place between June 6-7 at London’s Victoria Park.

Acts also confirmed for the ninth edition of Field Day include Patti Smith, FKA Twigs, Django Django and Hookworms, plus headliners Caribou and Ride.
