Field Day will be moving to a “groundbreaking” new location in Meridian Water, North London, for the 2019 event.
Situated next to Tottenham Marshes at an old gas works, the new site is made up of a ten-acre outdoor space with four interlinked warehouses, the largest of which will be the biggest warehouse venue for music in the city (7,500 cap).
The new location will “give Field Day the platform to reinvent what a London festival is” with “never-before-seen staging and structures, state of the art production and the finest sound quality”.
Field Day, which will take place June 7-8, is working closely with Enfield Council, which is leading a 20-year regeneration of the Meridian Water area. The council aims to create a “true 24-hour neighbourhood – a new destination to enjoy nightlife, music, theatre, cinema and much more, all year round”.
Luke Huxham, festival director of Field Day, said: “2019 will mark the start of a new chapter for Field Day and a completely new type of festival for London. This new site will allow us to break down the restrictions that London festivals are normally faced with and deliver an unrivalled experience.
“It’s hugely exciting to be working with such a pioneering council, who support our ideas and are focused on creating a new cultural hub for London. We can’t wait to unveil more of our plans in the coming weeks.”
Bradley Thompson, co-founder and managing director of Broadwick Live Venues, added: “Broadwick Venues are extremely excited and proud to be embarking on a new and exciting journey and hosting one of our own festivals, Field Day at our new permanent venue and site.
“There couldn’t be a more important time to focus on and replenish London’s music and nightlife culture, and this truly allows us to break the boundaries on what metropolitan festivals should be and perfectly compliments our other London location and venue the Printworks.”
Field Day will be a short walk from the new Meridian Water station which will be open from May 2019, which will reach Liverpool Street in 24 minutes and Stratford in 17 minutes.
