Field Day will relocate to Enfield for next year's edition

The team behind Field Day have revealed that the festival will move to a new location in Enfield next year.

Following a year at Brockwell Park after moving from its longtime home of Victoria Park, the festival's next edition sees the it go north for the first time on a new site called Meridian Water at an old gas works, next to Tottenham Marshes.

The new site takes in ten acres of outdoor space as well as four large warehouse, the biggest of which has a capacity of 7,500. Field Day says that the move will allow the event "to go later than any other festival in London and present its biggest line-up to date."

A new overground station connecting the site to Liverpool Street Station will open up in May, shortly before next year's event which is scheduled to take place from June 7-8.

"2019 will mark the start of a new chapter for Field Day and a completely new type of festival for London," says Field Day festival director Luke Huxham. "This new site will allow us to break down the restrictions that London festivals are normally faced with and deliver an unrivalled experience."

Field Day says they are working closely with Enfield Council on the site which they are looking to establish as a permanent new home for the event. The council is undertaking a 20-year regeneration of the Meridian Water area that will be used for the site in the hope of creating a truly 24-hour neighbourhood.

The line-up for next year's festival will be announced in the coming months. You can sign up for exclusive access to pre-sale tickets, and find more information, here.
