Franz Ferdinand have been announced as headliners for next year’s Field Dayfestival which takes place in Tower Hamlets’ Victoria Park on 2 June 2012.

London is represented by dub stepper SBTRKT and guitar heroes Zulu Winter and The Vaccines, alongside Metronomy, Gold Panda and Tortoise in the initial line up with many more still to be announced for London’s nicest and most wonderful festival.

Now in its sixth year Field Day has moved to early June from its regular August date due to some sporting event taking place nearby. Early bird tickets are £39.50 through See Tickets.

Other London Festivals to have made line up announcements include:

Radio 1’s Hackney Weekender @ Hackney Marshes 23-24 June 2012
