  • Pantha Du Prince has been named as one of the main electronic acts for this year's Field Day event in London's Victoria Park. The single day festival has proved a popular day out for both the capital's indie kids and dance music fans, selling out its ticket allocation in each of its three previous years. French synth-rock quintet Phoenix have been announced as the main stage headliners, while Caribou will make the trip over from Canada to showcase the aqueous dance music of his Swim LP. Max Tundra will be on hand to demonstrate his infectious lo-fi karaoke antics, and edgy Cologne-based electronic trio Mouse On Mars—now unshackled from their Mark E. Smith-fronted Von Südenfed outfit—are likely to be performing fresh material given their three year break from any releases. Revellers looking for more of a straightforward house and techno fix can anticipate the aforementioned Pantha Du Prince as well as a DJ set from Border Community boss James Holden, while the dubstep fraternity will be represented by Bristol-based synth addict Joker, who'll be appearing alongside his regular mic man, MC Nomad. Fellow electronic instrument enthusiasts Silver Apples will also perform a mix of new tracks and their classic late-'60s psychedelia material. Attendees of previous Field Day events have registered their dissatisfaction with the volume levels on many of the stages in Victoria Park, but only time will tell if the festival's organisers have been able to pump things up a little for this July's installment.
