Festival Line-Up Update: Latitude, Benicassim, Rewire and more

REWIRE Festival

So first off, let it be known that London fest Field Day is striking an official partnership deal with Transgressive Records, in celebration of the latter’s tenth anniversary. In short, this will equate to a load of Transgressive signings, not least Mystery Jets, Dry The River, Thumpers and Marika Hackman, DJing all over this year’s Metronomy and Pixies-headlined Field Day festival, which takes place in Victoria Park on 7-8 Jun.

Transgressive’s Toby L, who formed the label “at a painfully young age” in 2004 with co-founder Tim Dellow, has this to say: “Field Day has created some of Transgressive’s favourite ever live music memories, and when we were mapping out parties, festivals and events for our 10th Anniversary this year, it felt like an obvious choice to present something with Tom and the Field Day team. However, we wanted to do something a bit different – so thought we’d turn some of our artists into DJs for the weekend. A few of our crew will also have a go to try and make people dance. We’ll all see you there”.

Yes, we will. First though, we’ll sit back and see named the latest headlining additions to Spain’s Benicassim (hint, they are highly “likely” lads), final amendments to good old fashioned rawk n roll all-dayer Camden Rocks, the IDs of the dance-style acts playing the RBMA Backyard Stage at Finland’s Flow, the listings for Latitude’s inaugural ‘late night’ line-up, and the first lot of confirmations over at Holland winter event ReWire…
