On the announcement, festival organisers said: “We just wanted to put on inclusive gatherings with amazing artists, sound systems and visuals, with the sole goal of showing everyone a good time. 10 years on and we think it’s safe to say we’ve got a bit of experience in putting on a good party.
“At the first FM in 2013 everything was done on a wing and a prayer and it was hard work persuading established artists to travel to a field in the middle of nowhere on the promise of a party,” they continued. “We’ve come a long way since then and after the uncertainty of last year and run a crowdfunder last year, we’re still pinching ourselves that for this 10th edition of FM it feels incredible to be collaborating with such iconic and uncompromising stage partners.”
Last year, Field Maneuvers launched a Crowfunder to secure its future, raising £40,000 via donations from fans of the festival. Last year’s edition saw the festival move to a new site in the UK, and host a line-up that included Octo Octa & Eris Drew, OK Williams, Overmono, and more.
