Field Day will move to a “unique new site” for 2019 after just one year at Brockwell Park.
"We can confirm that Field Day will not be taking place at Brockwell Park next year," the festival organisers said in an official statement. "2019 will mark an evolution of Field Day with more to be revealed soon."
“[The] festival is being re-formatted for a unique new site in London," said Lambeth Green Party Councillor Becca Thackraya in a statement published by Brixton Buzz on Monday.
"Field Day’s decision to hold the festival in a more suitable location is the right one, for them and for the people of Herne Hill," she added. "While I commend the organisers for their efforts to minimise the disruption to the area in May, it was always going to be impossible to simultaneously satisfy paying festival-goers and meet the needs of local residents."
Field Day had been held at Victoria Park, in the north London borough of Hackney, for 11 years, moving to Brockwell Park for its 2018 edition, which featured the likes of Jeff Mills, Helena Hauff and Fever Ray. At the time of writing there has been no confirmation about the future of Lovebox festival, which had followed suit by switching to the Lambeth location this year.
