1. Village Mentality
Bringing that village fete feeling to Field Day and Tower Hamlets is Village Mentality. Unique to Field Day, Village Mentality runs in the daytime from 1-5pm and it’s the bunting strewn, straw bale-filled heart of the festival. For 2014, the Village Green runs on both days of the weekend, offering (as ever) a wry mix of old favourite and new classic team games and DIY-style side stalls including: Village Green Team Games, Lo-fi Sideshows with Hi-fi prizes and Tate Britain and Etsy craft workshops.
2. Street Feast
This London-based pioneering night street food market brings together the city's best food traders, chefs and restaurants for a quite unique eating experience. It will be based in the heart of the Village Mentality area at Field Day. Forget bland burgers, falafel wraps and other example of tired festival grub, Street Feast will be offering everything from Rainbo’s fresh & healthy gyoza to Hotbox’s 9 hour slow smoked beef ribs. Delish.
3. The beer festival
A festival's not a festival without beer right? Right. But put the cans of Kronenberg away, and get sipping on one of the many varieties of craft beer that will be on offer at the festival. Parked in the middle of the Street Feast area, the lovely people of Greenwich based Meantime Brewery will be drafting their freshest lager and the London’s Brewers’ Market will be appearing at Field Day for the first time, presenting a round up of the very best of London’s craft brewing scene, including The Five Points Brewing Company (Hackney), Hackney Brewery (Hackney), Beavertown Brewery (Hackney Wick), Fourpure Brewing Co (Bermondsey, London), Late Knights Brewery (Crystal Palace).
Our artist to watch, Tourist’s music seduces you to lie down, close your eyes and fantasize. Tourist’s vibe is cold and profound, a mixture of organic orchestrations and rhythmic intersections. Knitted with a consistent electronic blueprint, his songs forecast a new page in British electronic music. Don't miss it.
To get you in the mood for SUMMER.
