Field Day has announced its second wave of acts.

Noise-rap trio Death Grips, experimental spoken word artist Kojey Radical and south London MC Flohio have been added to the line-up, along with Femi Kuti, Homeshake and Mahalia. The newly-announced acts join headliners Jorja Smith and Skepta on the bookings.

This year the London festival will also be hosting a late night programme, which will see it extend its schedule until 3am (GMT) at Printworks. Berlin duo Modeselektor, Leon Vynehall, Mella Dee, disco selector Denis Sulta and Nocturnal Sunshine are amongst those confirmed for the night programme at the 7,500 capacity venue. This extension will make Field Day the latest-running festival in London.

After relocating to Brockwell Park in 2018, Field Day is set to up sticks and move to Meridian Water in Enfield, on 7-8 June. Its next chapter will be held at a former gas works site, featuring four interlinked warehouses with a 10-acre outdoor area.

Tickets are available via the festival’s website. Read Crack Magazine’s in-depth feature with Flohio.
