Field Day

It’s known as the London summer festival’s former indie darling. Field Day is on the 1st to 2nd day of June at Brockwell Park. It has outdone itself continually over the previous decade. It embraces everything from post-punk, pop, and folk to jazz, techno, and grime, this year will surely be the first that it will be enjoyed outside Hackney. It will move to the south to Brockwell Park’s sunny inclines.

Alongside the stellar lineup that features Charrlotte Gainsbourg, Loyle Carner, Four Tet, and Erykah Badu, the Field Dayd will bring its trademark. It is the village mentality that is complete with sack racing, village green, delicious street food, and human pyramids.

Visions Festival

It will be held on the 4th of August across the different Hackney venues. Taking over the top venues in Hackney, Visions basically ploughs the depths of alternative music industry to highlight some of the best under-the-radar talents and rising stars in the industry. If catching sets from the most diverse and brightest new artists in the world of alternative pop, neo-soul, post-punk, and indie was not enough, Visions festival runs a dog show to help All Dogs Matter. The prizes are Best Fancy Dress, Waggiest Tail, and Cutest Pup.
