The organiser of Field Day has announced that the festival will be moving to a new site for 2018.

While the new London location is yet to be announced, the organiser has confirmed that the event will be taking place on 2 June 2018.

This news follows unconfirmed reports that AEG Presents – the company responsible for British Summer Time in Hyde Park – has signed an exclusive contract with London’s Victoria Park – a move set to shake up the capital’s festival scene.

If true, the news may mean that other festivals which have historically take place in the park, such as LoveBox and Citadel, may also need to relocate.

Access has reached out to AEG but the company has declined to comment at this time.

We will keep an eye on this story as it develops.
