The artists you'd be mad to miss at Field Day
We've hand selected the artists we think deserve your time at this year's festival in London
Ben Klock b2b Marcel Dettmann
Put two techno titans head to head, and the results are destructive. The pair of original Berghain residents have earned their stripes through pummelling sets and deep selections. Prepare for a masterclass supported by the darker side of electronic music.
The multi-talented breakthrough DJ has cemented her reputation through producing dreamy house music, whilst adding mesmerising layers to tracks with her soulful vocals. With a mega release on Julio Bashmore's Broadwalk Records and a firm grip on Bristol's clubbing scene through promoting, she is just as relevant behind the decks as she is behind the scenes.
Insanely diverse and never one to follow the crowd, Leon Vynehall's sets are an exploration of grooves, spreading from house to techno but never mimicking sounds. A regular at Panorama Bar and heavily influenced by 70s disco and hip-hop, Vynehall is a truly innovative and raw talent.
Daniel Avery B2B Andrew Weatherall
Another mammoth Field Day back-to-back comes courtesy of these two ingenious heavyweights. Daniel Avery's 'Drone Logic' album sent his career to new heights, and showcased his psychedelic twist on electronic music. He's joined by Andrew Weatherall, who has been at the forefront of the development of the British techno scene, making it his mission to deliver cutting-edge music to those who crave it and can take it.
Todd Terje and the Olsens
Sets don't come much more summer-suited then Todd Terje's, especially when it's all unfolding in front of you live with his full band. His performances with the Olsen's have spawned some of the happiest festival moments going; picture his clubbing classics like Inspector Norse and Strandbar, performed by a gang of gifted musicians.
Hudson Mohawke (Live)
This one is going to be big and loud. Hud Mo's genre-flittering style will be brought to life through his live set at Field Day. Don't miss it, basically.
Elijah & Skilliam
The grime two piece have been ruling the airwaves on Rinse FM since 2008, and throughout the years they have pushed the genre into new territory, bringing menacing beats to the mainstream. They are the driving force behind the Butterz imprint and have played a crucial part in grime's evolution through their fierce passion.
Madlib (DJ set)
When it comes to hip-hop DJs and producers, they don't get much more prolific than Madlib. He's previously joined forces with DJ Dilla and MF Doom for some massive collaborations, and if you want to get a taste of the beatsmith's ingenious approach to music, check out his DJ set at this year's festival.
Sophie is a dab hand at creating pop-laced, hyperactive little bursts of joy and the anonymous producer has already released on Numbers and XL Recordings. Sickly sweet vocals and a warped take on garage make up the distinguished sound, perfect for those festival moments you need something a bit odd.
The Night Slugs imprint boss' experimental approach to electronic music is a breath of fresh air, and we can't wait to see what he has in store for his Field Day set.
