Secure your ticket to "The UK's most mischievous little rave"!

“700 people, three nights, one field - clear your calendar for the UK’s most mischievous little rave". Six years running and stronger than ever, with an all-star line-up of the underground’s elite: this summer’s most intimate festival favourite, Field Maneuvers, is back for 2018.

With Wireless Festival under fire for a line-up featuring only 3 female artists of the 40 announced so far, and festival line-ups generally dominated by male artists, Field Maneuvers are instead letting the ladies shine by announcing a female-heavy first wave of acts for their 2018 line-up!

Run by a group of music loving, party experts - Field Maneuvers is a one of a kind festival experience. An uncompromising, inclusive line up, drawing in artists from around the globe and featuring the highest spec sound systems, it’s good vibes only. Inspired by the free-party movement, Field Maneuvers is not for profit, a nod to the euphoric shakedowns of back in the day.

As ever, FM welcomes back some of their long-standing family to soundtrack the hedonistic weekend with residents Ben Sims, Ryan Elliott, Jane FitzNick Höppner all making a return.

Field Maneuvers' resident spinners are testament to the party’s core values – eclecticism inclusivity and incomparable music. Hypnotic house, infectious garage and thumping techno through to hands in the air trance, post-punk, EBM and odd left-field explorations. Joining the residents’ roster for this year is Peach Disc’s head honcho, Shanti Celeste.

Vibe purveyor with an ear for dance floor heat, Shanti’s sets span far flung realms beyond the record bag, always packing a vibrant punch. Also joining the resident’s roster is Elena Colombi, the eclectic who made her imprint on London’s scene through revered NTS shows and unpredictable club sessions.

More music comes frm rave royalty, Dr Rubinstein, set to whip dancers into a thrilling frenzy with her blend of squelching acid, urgent electro and wild techno.

Plus, K-Hand, the unsung hero of the US techno scene ready to dictate a wild narrative with unrelenting command of the dancefloor.

Renowned for ethereal rhythms released on revered labels such as ESP institute, Japanese DJ and producer, Powder, is set to tickle the festival floor with otherworldly sounds. Also joining the line up with her fierce spontaneity and arresting jams is French artist and rule-breaker, rRoxymore.
