Former Crack Magazine cover star Aphex Twin performed at London’s Field Day festival last weekend (19 August). Over the weekend, NTS Radio shared a 360-degree video of the set in its entirety, which you can check out here. NTS has warned that viewer discretion is advised given the video features flashing lights, and may potentially trigger seizures for people with photosensitive epilepsy.
The 16th edition of the Victoria Park festival also featured artists such as Jayda G, Arca, Art School Girlfriend and Sudan Archives, with Bonobo also headlining. Aphex Twin’s set included visuals from long-time collaborator Weirdcore, and saw the likes of Dua Lipa, Stormzy, SOPHIE and Charli XCX incorporated into the show through superimposed visuals that merged their images with Aphex Twin’s face.
