Last year we brought you Disclosure, Jacques Greene, TNGHT, Ben Pearce, Daniel Avery, Daphni, Julio Bashmore, Seth Troxler, the Hessle Audio hat-trick and a surprise appearance from How to Dress Well, so expect something serious this year. Today, we announce the first act: key member of the xx and successful producer and DJ in his own right, Jamie xx.
Here’s Bugged Out’s Johnno Burgess on the news, “Bugged Out are thrilled to be partnered with FACT again at this year’s Field Day and are also very happy to welcome back the brilliant Jamie xx to play our stage.”
The festival has also announced set of new names, including Avey Tare’s Slasher Flicks, Bake, Drenge, FunkinEven (live) and Eyedress. They join Neneh Cherry, Evian Christ, Pixies and a whole lot more. For tickets and more information, head here.
