Jason Williamson, frontman of Sleaford Mods, ‬commented on their addition to the Field Day line-up: “We’ve been wanting to play Field Day for ages, it’s a festival that always houses a great deal of interesting new music and not the usual bland array of star employees from big labels. Should be a right laugh!”

After confirming the iconic PJ Harvey, Field Day has also revealed more names for its Sunday line up, which so far includes Beach House, John Grant, Molly Nilsson, GOAT, Optimo, Thurston Moore Band and many more.

Field Day Sunday welcomes The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Mbongwana Star, Blossoms, Parquet Courts, Tangerines, Cass McCombs, Daphni, Formation, Tourist, and Moon Duo.

Field Day president Tom Baker said of the new additions: “I’m really thrilled to be able to announce even more acts for our 10th series of Field Day; Mbongwana Star are coming all the way from Kinshasa and they will blow your mind! We are very happy to welcome back Dan Snaith in his Daphni guise to FD Sunday alongside the seminal and psychedelic brilliance of The Brian Jonestown Massacre. True gents those Sleaford Mods will teach you some manners and Metz will make your ears bleed (in a good way). There is still more to come, we just can’t tell you it all now!”
