James Blake will be joining Field Day’s most electrifying line-up yet, as they ramp up celebrations for the Victoria Park festival’s 10th birthday.

Blake, an British electronic musician, will be headlining the Saturday night at Field Day, news that is likely to send his fans into a feeding frenzy as they await Radio Silence, his new album, which is set to feature Kanye West.

Field Day’s announcement is cleverly timed, since only yesterday (Thursday) Blake premiered new single ‘Modern Soul’ during his BBC Radio 1 residency.

Blake last graced Victoria Park in 2011 on one of the smaller stages. Now, with the Mercury Prize-winning album Overgrown under his belt, and the promise of many more soulful tracks, he’s preparing a triumphant return.

With the likes of PJ Harvey, Beach House and Sleaford Mods already confirmed, Victoria Park is set to be transformed into a music-lovers’ paradise this June, and although four months away, with this line-up it’s never too early to start looking forward.

Field Day is at Victoria Park on Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 June 2016.
