Preview for tomorrow's Festival! Woooooo!

This time tomorrow, the Quietus will be in our linen jackets as we play host to the Village Mentality Stage at the Field Day festival, DJing around the top notch line-up of Mazzy Star, Tortoise, Grimes, R Stevie Moore, Gold Panda, Afrocubism and so on who'll be gracing our stage. We popped down to have a look at the site this morning, and very nice it was too, with buff men lifting giant PA systems into place, and nobody yet wearing rip-off Rayban sunglasses.

We can report that the site is far bigger than previous years, and now that the council have finished doing up Victoria Park there's vastly more room to move around. You can find the interactive site map with all stage times and so on at the Field Day website If you're not in London and can't make the Festival, then you can tune in to Field Day Radio for live programming and streaming sets from the likes of Chairlift, Outfit, Django Django, Franz Ferdinand, Modeselektor, Blanck Mass and Errors. You can listen to Field Day Radio here. And to keep you in the mood, we're made a massive Spotify playlist of some of our favourite music on the bill, which you can listen to below. We're told there might be very few tickets on the door, for the rest of the day you can buy tickets here.
