Celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, Field Day has become a staple event in London's music calendar. Known for offering an exciting, eclectic mix of artists, this year is no different. Its eight stages offer a little of something for everyone, from hip-hop heavyweights Run The Jewels, to shoegaze legends Slowdive. We've put together a list of some of our picks to see this Saturday, an ideal starting point for anyone feeling a little overwhelmed by the choices on offer.

Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith - 13:30 Resident Advisor

Get to Victoria Park early to catch this American producer and composer. Smith's last record Ears (released 2016) was an experimental, yet intimate electronic record that drew influence from Miyazaki's animation Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind. As such, Smith's live show is expected to be a unique and transportive experience - perfect for easing you into the day.


ABRA - 14:20 Resident Advisor

This Atlanta-based singer is sure to be one of the day's early highlights. The Princess EP confirmed ABRA as the queen of darkwave and we're excited to see her bring that sound to Field Day. Expect a moody, atmospheric set and a chance to hear ABRA's latest cut, 'Play'.


Kevin Morby - 17:45 Shacklewell Arms

There are a ton of great acts appearing on the Shacklewell Arms stage this year and any one of them could have landed a spot on this list, but we've decided to go with Kevin Morby. On 2016's Singing Saw, Morby refined his folk rock sound into something truly wonderful and with a new album (City Music) due out soon we're very excited to see how he's been able to further develop that.


Lady Leshurr - 20:30 Eat Your Own Ears

Grime MC Lady Leshurr has been growing in popularity since the viral success of 'The Queen's Speech 4' in 2016 and it's not hard to see why. With witty, smart delivery, Leshurr is one of rap's most entertaining lyricists. With a prime slot on Field Day's main stage (and right before Run The Jewels) there has never been a better time to catch Leshurr's excellent live show.


Aphex Twin - 20:55 The Barn

Aphex Twin headlines Field Day's newest stage, The Barn, and looks set to close out the festival in spectacular fashion with a two-hour set. Hopefully it will make full use of the new stage's high-powered sound system and lighting, but what to expect otherwise seems a little unclear right now. Reviews from Aphex Twin's last live show (Houston's Day For Night) were extremely positive, with the legendary producer dropping tracks spanning contemporary electronica and from up-and-coming producers. Whatever happens, this is sure to be one of the festival's most talked about moments.
