Luke Turner and Tom Baker take a look around the Victoria Park site before the crowds descend this weekend

Ahead of this weekend's event, tQ's Luke Turner had the opportunity to take a trip down memory lane with Field Day founder Tom Baker, who talked us through the festival site at Victoria Park.

In this year's final episode of Field Day Radio, we talk about the "rural" inspiration at the core of the event, its musically unflappable audience, how the atmosphere has coped with such huge growth and the catharsis involved in booking a band like the Pixies. Listen above, take a look at our preview page and our top ten of new acts to check out here.
