Field Day unveils 'ground-breaking' site move

Organisers of Field Day have announced the festival is moving to a "ground-breaking" new location in Meridian Water, North London.

Situated next to Tottenham Marshes at an old gas works, the new site is made up of a 10-acre outdoor space with four interlinked warehouses, the largest of which will be the biggest warehouse venue for music in the city at 7,500-capacity.

The move will allow Field Day to go later than any other festival in London and present its biggest line-up to date. 

Field Day festival director Luke Huxham 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.”

The event was based in Victoria Park for 10 years before moving to Brockwell Park last year.

Bradley Thompson of Broadwick Live Venues said: "‘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 complements our other London location and venue the Printworks."

Field Day is working closely with Enfield Council, which is leading a 20-year regeneration of the Meridian Water area in a bid to create a true 24-hour neighbourhood.
