Mulatu Astatke, Thomas Mapfumo and Ginger Baker all set to play London festival
The British festival season is rapidly creeping up on us, and Field Day in London’s Victoria Park is one of the first to look out for. Taking place on Saturday May 25, the one day event has built up a reputation over recent years for collating a whole host of rising and established music acts from both home and abroad.
This year is arguably the strongest yet, with Ethio-jazz legend Mulatu Astatke and the founder of Zimbabwean chimurenga Thomas Mapfumo joining Animal Collective, Ginger Baker Jazz Confusion, Charanjit Singh, Everything Everything and Kurt Vile.
We are excited to have a pair of tickets to give away for the festival. Click here to enter. Winners will be announced on May 13.
