Field Day has revealed it will be moving once again for its 2019 festival.
After using east London’s Victoria Park as its home for a good few years, it relocated to south London’s Brockwell Park for last year’s event. Now, it’s upping sticks once again and setting up over in north London’s Meridian Water.
“2019 will mark the start of a new chapter for Field Day and a completely new type of festival for London,” said Luke Huxham, Field Day’s Festival Director. “This new site will allow us to break down the restrictions that London festivals are normally faced with and deliver an unrivalled experience.”
The new site will be a permanent festival and event space run by Printworks’ owners Broadwick Live and is situated on a 10-acre former gas works next to Tottenham Marshes. It features four interlinked warehouses, the largest of which has a capacity of 7,500.
While many councils appreciate the revenue brought in from festivals, which can often cover the costs of the park for a whole year, they also struggle to keep residents happy with the influx of loud party-goers. Enfield Council, however, are no doubt very happy to host Field Day as the Meridian Water area is currently in the midst of a 20-year regeneration project, turning it into a cultural hub for nightlife, music, theatre and cinema.
Field Day 2019 will take place on 7th and 9th June, with the first batch of tickets going on sale this Friday 23 November.
