Field this year once again saw Victoria Park basked in sunshine. Spanning over both Saturday and Sunday for the first time they may have to consider adding an ‘s’ on the end of the East London Festival. Day
Saturday saw more of a surge in electronic bands and DJ’s with Jaguar Ma stealing the show in a tent packed to the rafters. Warpaint brought their free flowing experimental waves to the main stage and clearly loved the vibes.
Sunday presented another scorcher and was clearly a day for the guitar band lover. An early slot of Nirvana infused angst brought us all to life watching The Wytches, sharp got rid of any lasting hangovers. The rest of the day saw equally exciting sets from some of the UK’s best upcoming bands with Telegram, Temples and Drenge all smashing their sets. Aussie boys Pond were a definite highlight of psychedelic madness and insane stage clobber, but truly brilliant to watch.
The Horrors looked as confident as ever showcasing tunes from their new album Luminous as well as playing staples from their impressive back catalogue. Future Islands were always going to be the band everyone wanted to see, even more so than The Pixies and proved that by filling the tent to capacity as workers held up ‘Tent Full’ signs to fans desperate to get a glimpse of the hit that propelled them into the spotlight, ‘Seasons’.
The festival also held some of the most popular street vendors London has to offer with endless choice to cater for all needs. There was also a huge amount of Craft beer to get stuck into, bye bye Red Stripe, big thumbs up!
