Beirut, Franz Ferdinand, Metronomy, and Afrocubism are all playing the June 6, 2012 Field Day Festival. Check out the full lineup below. This is a one day show that takes place in Victoria Park, London and usually features five stages of acts.
Yes, there’s music, but the most bizzare feature of the festival may be the Village Mentality are which features (and I’m not making this up):
Blindfold Sweetcorn Husking Championship
Broom Sweeping Slalem
Pull the Short Straw
Apron String Shuffle Race
Tug of War hosted by the official Tug of War Association
Seriously? There’s a Tug of War Asscocation? That’s just awesome, although Scone Throwing sounds like it certainly could be the most exciting.
