Ex Supergrass man Gaz Coombes has joined shoegazing royalty Ride and the legendary Patti Smith as headliners at this year’s Field Day Festival.
Coombes will be playing material from his new Matador album and will doubtless drop in a few Supergrass classics as well.
Spread over two days at London’s Victoria Park, they will join acts such as Mercury prize nominees FKA twigs, Hookworms, Savages and Tune yards . At the event Patti Smith will be performing her groundbreaking 1975 debut ‘Horses’ in full.
More acts are due to be announced in the coming weeks.
Field Day takes place over 6-7 June. Tickets are on sale at www.fielddayfestivals.com. Early bird weekend tickets cost £78.
