I’m thrilled about the return of Skepta who back in 2016 played to one of the biggest crowds we’ve ever had at Field Day, Saturday’s headliner the brilliant Jorja Smith will be truly sensational, Diplo’s sets are just absolute dance frenzied seamless brilliance, alongside rising artists Pip Blom, MorMor, Boy Azooga and the return of Deerhunter with an excellent new album.
