Having teased the news over the weekend, Field Day organisers have confirmed that Aphex Twin will be appearing at the festival, marking his first UK show in almost a decade.
The producer will be taking to the new state of the art indoor second main stage arena, The Barn, on the 3 June 2017.
This year sees the festival consolidated into one day, and introduces the giant metal construction that promises to host major electronic performances, including spectacular lighting and sound.
“It’s truly amazing to have Aphex Twin headline Field Day,” says festival co-founder Tom Baker, “I’ve been listening to him since I was 16, he played and curated some of the first ever Eat Your Own Ears nights (the most memorable being a warehouse on Brick Lane that got closed down by the police!) so it’s an incredible honour to have him play our brand new indoor monolithic second main stage arena…It will be a phenomenal, mind blowing, mesmerisingly, fantastic two hours of absolute genius….”
Tickets for Field Day are available from 1 December 2016 through Ticketmaster.co.uk.
