Field Day 2019 will move to a new location in Meridian Water, North London.
Situated next to Tottenham Marshes at an old gas works, the new site is made up of a ten-acre outdoor space with four giant, interlinked warehouses, the largest of which will be the biggest warehouse venue for music in the city (7,500 capacity).
The move will allow Field Day to go later than any other festival in London and present its biggest line-up to date.

The new location will give Field Day the platform to reinvent the festival with new staging and structures, state of the art production and the sound quality.
Over the past 12 years, Field Day has hosted talent including Aphex Twin, Erykah Badu, Patti Smith, Loyle Carner, Skepta, PJ Harvey and Charlotte Gainsbourg. Having resided in Victoria Park for 10 years, before moving to Brockwell Park last year, Field Day will embark on a new chapter in 2019.
Luke Huxham, festival director, Field Day said: “2019 will mark the start of a new chapter for Field Day and a completely new type of festival for London. This new site will allow us to break down the restrictions that London festivals are normally faced with and deliver an unrivalled experience. It’s hugely exciting to be working with such a pioneering council, who support our ideas and are focused on creating a new cultural hub for London. We can’t wait to unveil more of our plans in the coming weeks”.
Field Day are working closely with Enfield Council, who are leading a 20-year regeneration of the Meridian Water area as they aim to create a true 24-hour neighbourhood – a new destination to enjoy nightlife, music, theatre, cinema and much more, all year round.
Cllr Nesil Caliskan, leader of Enfield Council said: “Enfield Council is hugely ambitious for Meridian Water – a major £6bn, 20-year London regeneration programme led by Enfield Council, which will bring 10,000 homes and thousands of jobs to Enfield, North London. Meridian Water will be a truly vibrant neighbourhood and new destination to enjoy nightlife, music, theatre, cinema and much more, all year round. Bringing the sheds back into use to deliver high quality leisure, arts and cultural facilities and events is part of our drive to bring life and activity into the area and create a new 24-hour London destination. It also reflects the Council’s commitment to pursue meanwhile use for some sites on Meridian Water so that we generate income for the Council”.
Bradley Thompson, Broadwick Live Venues, said: “‘Broadwick Venues are extremely excited and proud to be embarking on a new and exciting journey and hosting one of our own festivals, Field Day at our new permanent venue and site. There couldn’t be a more important time to focus on and replenish London’s music and nightlife culture, and this truly allows us to break the boundaries on what metropolitan festivals should be and perfectly compliments our other London location and venue the Printworks.”
Field Day will be a short walk from the new Meridian Water station which will be open from May 2019, which will reach Liverpool Street in 24 minutes and Stratford in 17 minutes. It is also within walking distance from Tottenham Hale Station which is connected by the Victoria Line (24hr) and Lee Valley Rail. Clapton, Stoke Newington or Dalston are a 20-minute drive away.
