The east London festival unveils the first day’s acts.

After revealing Pixies as Sunday’s headline act, the organisers of next year’s Field Day have announced that pop chameleons Metronomy will headline the Saturday of the expanded two-day festival.

Other acts lined up for Saturday include madcap rapper Danny Brown, leftfield experimenter Oneohtrix Point Never, Planet Mu afropop act John Wizards, pop ingenue Sky Ferreira and Syrian cult hero Omar Souleyman.

Daniel Avery, Dusky, George Fitzgerald, Innervisions: Dixon & Ame, James Holden (live) and Jon Hopkins fill out Saturday’s dance offering, while Seun Kuti, son of legendary Afrobeat inventor Fela Kuti, will be performing alongside Fela’s Egypt 80. Hyperdub’s Jessy Lanza and indie bands The Temper Trap and Warpaint are also confirmed, with more acts to be announced in the coming months.

The 2014 edition will be the first time the music bonanza has taken place over two days (June 7-8). Day and weekend tickets are on sale via the Field Day website.

Metronomy recently unveiled ‘I’m Aquarius’, the first single from their forthcoming album Love Letters – hear it below.
