Field Day has announced its homecoming at Victoria Park this year.

The East London festival, which moved to North London in 2019, has now confirmed it will make a triumphant return to its original home on 29 August 2021.

Part of the APE Presents events series, Field Day will see Bicep headline, with the electronic duo performing their recent Isles album alongside new tunes.

As Bicep’s only London festival performance this summer, it’s sure to be a moment that lives long in the memory of those in attendance.

Also set for the one-day festival are live performances from Floating Points, Ross From Friends and Overmono, as well as DJ sets from The Blessed Madonna, Josey Rebelle, George Fitzgerald b2b DJ Seinfeld, Mount Kimbie, Special Request, Mall Grab, Jungle, Artwork and more.

Field Day Co-Owner, Gareth Coopersaid "We couldn't be more excited to be bringing Field Day back to its spiritual home of Victoria Park, where it all started 14 years ago. We are going to deliver the best day out of the summer, in one of London's best parks, with an amazing crowd, a top top music lineup led from the front by the brilliant Bicep. It's gonna be ace.  We cannot wait to partner up with APE on presenting this show and provide some hope and excitement to finish off what's been an awful 12 months. The future starts today!”

Jim King, CEO of European Festivals at AEG Presents adds “Field Day have been friends of ours for many years and coming together and working with them on APE Present Field Day stands for everything good that is emerging from these challenging times. We respect what they do and we align so closely with what they stand for and so it’s a great feeling to be able to welcome them back to Victoria Park where they delivered so many amazing shows. They have a great line up headlined by the incredible Bicep and the larger capacity that APE offers means more fans will be able to see Field Day deliver what they do so well.”

"Today we announced changes to Field Day taking place this summer. The first change was that we are going back to our home of Victoria Park, and the second change is that the date is now August 29th, 2021.

"The changes were made to reduce the risk of putting on a large scale festival following the recent government updates. Although the decision was not taken lightly, we feel it was the right decision for the safety of our guests.

"All tickets for Drumsheds in July will be changed by us to the new date and you will be sent confirmation of this.

"We do understand that some people cannot make the new date, and apologise for any inconvenience caused. Please rest assured that anyone who booked via Kaboodle and cannot make the new date, including those who purchased new tickets this morning will be offered a full refund including their booking fee.
