As if you needed any extra inflation about what is fast becoming one the most highly anticipated dates in the musical calendar: Field Day. This year there were so many acts that really grabbed our attention it was hard to write a feature about them.

I mean, there are the obvious ones Mac Demarco, who over the last three years has become one of the most well-regarded and uber-talented musicians in the industry right now. There’s Patti Smith who, performing her entire Horses album is sure to bring the house down with a classic performance and even Caribou who’s incredible knack for a tune will surely send East London in to raptures this evening.

Add to that bands such as Hooton Tennis club, Yak, Allah Las, FKA Twigs, Run the Jewels, Stealing Sheep and the amazing Savages you have yourself a pretty good line-up.

So to save our writers from fingertip typeritis we just thought we would make this playlist filled with 30 songs to get your blood boiling for the extraordinary weekend of music set to descend upon the East End.

And hey, if you’e not going at least you can listen to this playlist, spritz beer across your face, let go of laughing gas balloons all afternoon and try and engage your imagination.
