The Midweek Mix – 03/06/15 – Field Day Special

This week’s Midweek Mix is a Field Day special. Assuming that any sensible Field Day-goer is already excited about Patti Smith, Caribou and Ride, here are five non-headline acts not to be missed:

Shura – 2Shy

As any regular Midweek Mix listeners will know, I have been raving about Shura for quite a while. I’m so excited to finally see her live.

Eagulls – Tough Luck

Eagulls have got some anger and they’re not afraid to show it. Behind the jingly opening of Tough Luck lies an aggression that will hopefully translate into a killer performance on Sunday. I’m not sure the early afternoon main stage atmosphere will suit them entirely, but I’ll be jumping around at the front shouting “touch wood, tough luck!” regardless.

Savages – Shut Up

Ohhhh, Savages, how excited we are to see you. Shut Up blew me away when I first heard it and I can’t wait to experience it live.


Django Django – First Light

I actually know very little about Django Django, so I’m very grateful to Field Day for giving me a reason to listen to them properly. They are a perfect festival act and should bring the feel-good, psychedelic influenced sound that Temples delivered last year.

Yak – Smile/Distortion

I’m disappointed to see that Yak’s set overlaps with Savages, but anyone who happens to be in possession of time-turner should definitely see both. As noted last week, Yak have to be seen live to be truly loved

If you’re heading to Field Day this weekend, do shout your must-see recommendations at me in the comments below.

    Just heard/watched Shura’s ethereal single, and now I read about it in your blog. Serendipitous.
