The Quietus announce Field Day competition winner

By | Published on Tuesday 20 July 2010

The Quietus will host the Village Mentality stage at this year’s Field Day festival, which takes place at the end of the month.

Amongst those appearing on the stage will be Gruff Rhys and Tony Da Gattora, Amiina, Archie Bronson Outfit, Esben & The Witch and Mouse On Mars. But the all important slot is the very first of the day. To fill this position the website launched a competition to find an unsigned band who were up to the job.

Yesterday it was announced that the winners are Runners, a band from Leeds who have not yet recorded anything but impressed the judges with a handful of YouTube videos filmed at recent gigs.
