FIELD DAY 2014

1 brunch Finally finally, my favourite day of the year has arrived. It is time for Field Day Festival! The heavy rain has been pouring down all night and all morning but exactly at 11am it stops. So to properly warm up we gather nine wicked people for a overwhelming brunch at ours. 2 kajsa thedi We make scrambled eggs and grilled tomatoes, toasted bagels and heaps of bacon, strawberries and melon, and of course dangerous bloody marys and mimosas. 3 kajsa mikey Kajsa and Mikey are there of course. Even though I’ve told everybody I don’t want to miss Charlotte OC at 1:30pm I know we will because we are just have too much of a good time to leave. 5 mikey saboune Bad boys. 6 thedi mikey I’m impressed and a little bit worried about how many cans/bottles/cocktails we were able to empty before leaving but off we go into the blasting sunlight. 8 kajsa thedi It’s like a pilgrimage, where all hipsters overflow the streets leading up to Victoria Park. We are beyond ecstatic and I can’t stop screeching and jumping a bit up and down like another nutcase. 9 field day And we’re in. And not only do I miss Charlotte OC but we have to rush over to make it to Only Real. 10 only real And we do. Their music feels just as being on a tropical beach with an umbrella drink and bleached cutoff shorts in some 80s film where people dance funny. <3 Summer is officially here with Only Real. 13 kajsa And we sure like that. About here Kajsa and I swear that next july us two and Wilma will be road tripping through the states and stay at weird motels in the middle of the desert and drink umbrella drinks by the pool. 12 field day <3 14 kajsa wilma Wilma happens to find a newspaper with a picture of a girl who is identical to herself and is beyond mind blown. 11 wilma mikey So she spends half of the concert showing it to everybody. 14 thedi kajsa Others whisper secrets. 15 field day 1st gig is finished and many will now follow. 17 axel field day We pass Sky Ferreira who’s performing in a thick winter coat a la Alaska and sunglasses. Axel is not impressed. 16 bar The horror when we go to buy more beer and the prices have gone up from £3/can to £5! Everybody in Sweden are probably laughing at this, but living on a few hundred pounds a month this is a big deal. BUT, being on a London summer festival is bigger so we scrape our pockets clean today, without a single care. 20 chris It’s then time to run away to see the mystical dj Sophie who’s released one song and it’s the best ever, which is one of the main reasons I wanted to go. Here is our American flatmate Chris. 18 sophie And Sophie walks out, and she’s a boy? I am super disappointed because I wanted my electronic superhero to be a woman, but I guess we shouldn’t gender discriminate here. Anyways, this gig shake the core of me and we are witnessing the goddess of ecstasy and the beats of heaven. 19 sophie set It’s if electronic pop and the core hip hop had a baby with a smurf voice. And it sounds so weird but it is breathtaking. Dancing and screaming we turn to each other with gaping mouths like is this freaking music for real, it’s so damn wicked. 21 sophie set Some dude breakdowns/strips in the middle of the crowd. Just normal festival behaviour. 22 sophie set <3 23 group hug Without reception on our phones we run around with our cans and the thrill from the gig in our hearts trying to find our lost babes among the endless crowd occupying every bit of grass. When we do there is a lot of love. 24 kajsa mikey Knackered from too much running around in the sun haze we claim a great spot just in front of the stage where Blood Orange perform. 25 saboune26 saboune Drunk midday dancing. Strangers and old friends pass and join, the sun is sizzling our cheeks. Lovers make out and friends share the expensive beer. Somebody’s denim jeans rip open but there is nothing to do about that. Slowly we head over to see the other main act I’ve been dying to witness. 27 John Wizards It’s the Ugandan/South African band John Wizards, and they sure are magical. If I had a soundtrack to my life, this would be it. The crowd is hurting with happiness, screaming for more and I am so happy an African band singing in Kinyarwanda gets this kind of following. And if you haven’t heard them yet, LISTEN. It’s this summer’s tunes. 31 paelleria When John Wizards finish their set we go to see Jessy Lanza and Todd Terje. Our ears are ringing as the sun sets and it is time for some paella in the grass. 29 kajsa28 amel Scottish royalty Amel joins us, showered in glitter. 34 amel kajsa It is warm from the disappearing sun and dancing bodies oozing of beer and summer tans. There is an ridiculous amount of giggling going on and it feels like being 16 again, but without all the insecurity I used to feel. Damn, and people think it sucks to get older? 30 kajsa Police stroll the area and we keep look out as others take sips from flasks smuggled in under skirts. 32 mikey field day And we are loud and annoying, but happy. People cast evil glances at our group as we sing, and fall over from laughter, line up for group photos and take up more and more space as more friends join, but it’s alright. 36field day The four hours that follow are pure magic. We see Jagwar Ma and dance until we’re drenched with beer and sweat. I put Kajsa on my shoulders because she’s too short to see and I feel like super man. It is a collective madness and youth has never felt as good. 32 field day Last we see a couple of songs at SBTRKT who’re just as great as you’d think but it feels too much like 2011 when I lived with Olivia so we head to see Fat White Family instead. The ground must’ve sunk at least 20cm considering how much everybody jumped and stomped their feet. So much hair whipping and screaming and before we knew it Field Day was over. It always hurts, but a pleasurable kind of pain. And nobody wanted to stop partying so a big group head over to ours for an after party. We drink left over bloody marys and dance to today’s lineup, hang out in my bed and smoke on the terrace. After a few hours I fall asleep in the staircase. When I wake up in my bed at 10am, people are still partying in my livingroom. Best goddamn day ever. <3   Linn
