ANNOUNCING FIELD DAY 2009:
SATURDAY AUGUST 1, 2009
VICTORIA PARK, GROVE ROAD, TOWER HAMLETS, LONDON, E3

Field Day is proud to announce these additions to its 2009 lineup:

Mystery Jets

Santigold
Field Day 09 drops yet another A-list of performers. Cosmic synth pop chanteuse Little Boots plays a full live set, The Horrors and Mystery Jets both re-emerge with a brand new sound, and dancehall queen Santigold plays one of just two exclusive U.K. dates all summer, the other being Field Day's "little brother" Underage Festival.

Brought to you by London's most adventurous and daring promoters - Eat Your Own Ears, Adventures In The Beetroot Field, Bugged Out! – Field Day will bring you the most cutting edge line up of bands and DJs in the 2009 Festival season. The heart of East London will be transformed into a Village Fete. Away from sound systems and stages the masses can indulged in some countrified fun and games on the Village Green area - 'Village Mentality' - within the festival. Try your luck on the tombola, crack a few nuts on the coconut shy - or just sit on some hay bales and stuff your face with homemade cake. Inspired by summer sports days and country fetes - Field Day's very own village green will host stalls and activities throughout the daytime, ranging from sack-racing, to whack-the-rat, Bowling for Bacon and lots more to be announced. Come along, have fun, eat baked goods, and as the country saying goes - "be like an ant in the days of summer."
