The Quietus went to Field Day, got wet, and had a bloody lovely time. Here we present a gallery of photos and words from the festival


Wild Beasts
This time last year, Wild Beasts were left to fare for themselves in an early slot on the Eat Your Own Ears Stage, forced to battle the wind and rain as they ran through debut Limbo, Panto for a sodden group of onlookers. It’s a far better state of affairs for the Kendal quartet this year. With accolades for new album Two Dancers already piling up, the band take to the stage in the covered space of the Adventures in the Beetroot Field tent to face a (fairly dry) crowd who are ready to give one of Britain’s finest the reception they’ve long since deserved. It’s too early to call Wild Beasts’ performance a victory lap, but the sentiment isn’t lost on the band as they hoot and howl their way through old and new, before politely thanking the audience like the true gentlemen they are.
