Field Day 2013

Published Categorised as Music No Comments on Field Day 2013


I also went to Field Day this year. It was the first Saturday I had off work in about 3 months, so it was good to make the most of it (I also had to go to work the next day- some­how I looked and felt fine, I must be a wonder of biology). I managed to see most of the bands I wanted to, bar Toy and Mount Kimbie. I was there with my house­mate, but we managed to keep miss­ing each other. When I left I suddenly had a flood of texts onto my phone saying things like “I’m at the bar by X, we’re going to watch Y in a min, where are you?” which might explain it. Stupid tech­no­logy. He saw Mount Kimbie and found it disap­point­ing anyway. I managed to find my Medway friends anyway, and spent some time with people from Read­ing too, which was nice.

I tried to go to a talk about the Radio­phon­ic Work­shop at the begin­ning, but it didn’t seem to happen. I sat on a chair for ages and noth­ing happened. The nice thing about it being a not so huge fest­iv­al though is that it’s fairly easy to find people. I get very claus­tro­phobic at really big fest­ivals, which is why I no longer go to them. I tend to go and just see what I want at fest­ivals these days, rather than go along with what a group wants to do. I don’t know if that makes me inde­pend­ent, or anti-social. I learnt my lesson when I was young. I went to Read­ing in either 2000 or 2001 (I can’t remem­ber which) and ending up having to watch Staind because I was going along with what people from school wanted to do, and then ended up miss­ing all but one song of At the Drive In. The only time I saw ATDI, and far too much of my life to waste on Staind.

This is a playl­ist of songs by the bands I saw, in the order that I saw them. I added Goat to the end, because that’s what we were listen­ing to after­wards, and the playl­ist seemed short.
