Field Day is moving from Brockwell Park to a new home in 2019.
After leaving Victoria Park to host its latest edition at the south London space in June, the festival will be relocating again next year. An official statement from the festival reads: “We can confirm that Field Day will not be taking place at Brockwell Park next year. 2019 will mark an evolution of Field Day with more to be revealed soon.”
Lambeth Council told Brixton Buzz: “Field Day will not take place at Brockwell Park in 2019, as the festival is being re-formatted for a unique new site in London.” According to the publication, Green Party councillor Becca Thackray also explains: “Field Day’s decision to hold the festival in a more suitable location is the right one, for them and for the people of Herne Hill. While I commend the organisers for their efforts to minimise the disruption to the area in May, it was always going to be impossible to simultaneously satisfy paying festival-goers and meet the needs of local residents.”
Pre-registration for Field Day 2019 tickets is now open. Erykah Badu headlined the London event this summer, and Crack Magazine hosted a stage with a line-up featuring former cover star Fever Ray, Princess Nokia and Jimothy Lacoste.
