First wave of acts includes Clark, Jane Weaver, Daniel Avery & Andrew Weatherall, Owen Pallett, Madlib and more

Following on from the announcement last week that the reformed Ride would be headlining next year's Field Day Sunday, the festival have now unveiled a mighty first raft of names for the event, like this year, a two-dayer running June 6-7. Caribou tops the bill on Saturday, while Patti Smith will be performing Horses in full on Sunday. Elsewhere, Saturday's line-up already looks sterling: Clark, Owen Pallett, Chet Faker, Django Django, Ghost Culture, Hailu Mergia with Tony Buck & Mike Majkowski, Jagaara, Kindness, Nina Kraviz, Tei Shi and Ten Walls are there, as is Madlib, turning in a DJ set, alongside back-to-backs from Daniel Avery & Andrew Weatherall and Ben Klock & Marcel Dettman. Sunday meanwhile sees DIIV, Ducktails and Outfit joining Ride and Smith, as well as Jane Weaver, behind one of our favourite albums of this year, The Silver Globe, and yesterday's Quietus interviewee.

Tom Baker, Field Day boss, says: "After a dream come true last week and Ride coming back after 20 years to headline Field Day Sunday, I'm really thrilled that Caribou (someone I've worked with for many, many, years), will close the main EYOE stage on Saturday. It's of course amazing to have Patti Smith and her band performing the incredible Horses, alongside so many other exciting acts over the weekend: everyone from Ethiopiques legend Hailu Mergia to Django Django, DIIV and Ducktails all back with brand new music… just so many… Bring on June 2015!"
