Field Day Announces 2015 Lineup With ‘Help’ From Mac DeMarco

field daySeated in a dirty bedroom, clad in overalls and coke bottle glasses and adopting his usual clownish attitude, Canadian slacker rocker Mac DeMarco strums some power chords and sings, “See you this year at Field Day” in a new promo video released to coincide with the announcement of the London festival’s 2015 lineup. While the video doesn’t provide much in terms of information—or laughs, for that matter—the full lineup listed on the festival’s website shows that the weekend will be loaded with great acts.

In addition to DeMarco, Field Day will allow fans to watch such acts as headliners Caribou and Ride. Among the other notable artists and bands on the bill are Patti Smith, Ducktails, the Allah-Las, FKA Twigs, My Brightest Diamond, Run the Jewels, Owen Pallett, tUnE-yArDs, and others.

Field Day will take place at Victoria Grove in London on June 6 and 7. For ticketing and other info, see the festival’s website. And should you want to watch DeMarco play random guitar riffs and affect an unconvincing British accent, see below:
