After a sold out 15th anniversary in 2022 that brought together 50,000 electronic music aficionados together for a day-long session at Victoria Park, Field Day returns with its largest, most eclectic line-up to date.

Jayda G, Arca, Kelela, Fever Ray, Actress (live), Julianna Huxtable, Sudan Archives, TSHA (live), and more have been revealed; each set to descend on Victoria Park on August 19th 2023 for an unmissable show.
One of our favourites to join this years lineup is Bonobo. The masterful creator known for his inventive productions that pull influence from all corners of electronica is set to turn the heat up!!.The long-term Ninja Tune affiliate is revered for impressive live shows that journey through lo-fi and experimental beats to hi-energy sonics – always a strong performance.
Also welcomed back is Aphex Twin, to his Hackney home for another jaw-dropping audio-visual epic. The mysterious producer Richard D James aka ‘Aphex Twin’ is undoubtedly one of the most influential names in the leftfield world, and sits as one of the most respected creators of our times. This will be his first performance since 2019; a progressive and experimental AV exploration in collaboration with Weirdcore. Aphex Twin’s last set at Field Day back in 2017 was a rare visit to earth for the other-wordly producer, and now he returns for what will be another major outing from the idiosyncratic artist.
A rare UK show is also in store from Arca, the Venezuelan creator whose output sits at the forefront of cutting-edge electronic music and is fused with artistic live performance. Fever Ray joins for what will be a major performance at Field Day 2023. A festival fave, Jayda G returns with her usual blend of feel-good house, disco, edits and singalong faves, as well as TSHA, Jon Hopkins and Kelela – set for live performances that are unmissable for the Field Day bucket list.
