Savages and Solange join the bill; new episode of Field Day Radio below

Forget this cursed cold and cast your minds forward with longing until the balmy days of May, when the fresh leaves look extra green, and all is bright with the promise of spring. This includes the opportunity to run amok in Victoria Park in East London for the annual Field Day Festival, where we're once again hosting the Village Mentality stage. A whole host of new artists have just been announced as playing, with tQ office particularly excited by the presence of Savages, Solange and John Cooper Clarke. The list also includes, Amateur Best, Connan Mockasin, Dark Dark Dark, Egyptian Hip Hop, Kurt Vile, Mount Kimbie, Palma Violets, Seth Troxler, Shed, Splashh, Stubborn Heart and Wild Nothing.

Take a listen to the new episode of Field Day radio, which features an interview with Kurt Vile and tracks by the other new acts - the next edition will be live next week. For tickets, head to the Field Day website here.
