Photography: Jane Stockdale commissioned by It’s Nice That
It’s Nice That were invited to be the official partners of the Shacklewell Arms stage at Field Day, the annual outdoor music festival that takes over East London’s Victoria Park.
With unprecedented access to the festival’s acts, It’s Nice That helped to launch Field Day’s line-up with a mix-tape celebrating ten years of the festival’s stellar line-ups.
It’s Nice That also published an extensive interview with Weirdcore, the creator of festival headliner Aphex Twin’s live visuals. It’s Nice That commissioned photographer Jane Stockdale to capture the electric atmosphere of Aphex Twin’s show at Field Day and Weirdcore’s arresting live visuals that accompanied his set.
It’s Nice That is excited to announce that we have partnered with Field Day on the Shacklewell Arms stage for the festival next Saturday (3 June 2017). The stage will host bands such as Thee Oh Sees, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard and Stranger Things soundtrack providers Survive. The full stage times for the event are now available for you to plan your day in advance here!
The mystery that surrounds Aphex Twin is like no other, outside and within electronic music, a genre he has shaped over the past 20 years. A man of 18 different pseudonyms, the rumours that surround Richard D. James are absurd but often true. It is difficult to name another artist who encourages such hearsay as to whether he lives in a box structure on the Elephant and Castle roundabout, when he was actually living in abandoned bank office. He’s a musician who announces upcoming albums via blimps flying over London or by hiding a track list in a deep web server, an innovator across all aspects of his creative output. It comes as no surprise, the visuals of Aphex Twin have evolved with the increased sophistication of technology.
