Field Day Announce Aphex Twin As Their First 2017 Headliner

Yes Field Day!

In a UK festival exclusive, Field Day has announced that its first headliner for 2017’s festival will be enigmatic producer Aphex Twin, playing his first UK show in almost a decade. Aphex Twin will be headlining Field Day’s brand new second indoor stage “The Barn” on Saturday night with an exclusive two-hour set.

Field Day takes place on Saturday 3rd June is consolidating its line-up into one day this year. Don’t worry though! The team at Eat Your Own Ears have been working hard to ensure that’s set to be just as comprehensive and diverse as ever. Here’s Tom Baker from EYOE on Aphex Twin and Field Day’s brand new stage.

“It’s truly amazing to have Aphex Twin headline Field Day, I’ve been listening to him since I was 16, he played and curated some of the first ever Eat Your Own Ears nights (the most memorable being a warehouse on Brick Lane that got closed down by the police!) so it’s an incredible honour to have him play our brand new indoor monolithic second main stage arena…It will be a phenomenal, mind-blowing, mesmerisingly, fantastic two hours of absolute genius….AFX WOW”.
