• It also gives the opportunity for some of East Anglia’s top musicians to shine.
A weekend of top musical talent, tasty street food and a laid-back vibe is coming to the Norfolk Showground.
Wild Fields on September 12 and 13 will be the perfect antidote to lockdown with two days of live performance, the best DJ’s, meals packed with fantastic flavours, and pop-up bars.
It will form part of the Summertime Social season of socially distanced and socially responsible events where people can enjoy live performance and a festival vibe outside Norwich.
Day one will feature a strong indie line-up with a dash of folk, rock, and some alternative pop. The line-up includes Gengahr, the experimental North London alt-pop four-piece. Now working with Jack Steadman of Bombay Bicycle Club as producer, the band boasts a symphonic sparkle to their complex sound.
Also on the day one line-up is Another Sky and the distinctive evocative vocals of Catrin Vincent, Kent-based Indoor Pets who perform a distinctive brand of music dubbed dirty pop, and the Colchester-based teen punk rock band Anorak Patch who will be celebrating the success of debut single Beans.
The day two line up will feature a new wave jazzy feel mixed with some neo-soul, feelgood folk and alternative ambient electronica.
The performers include some of the leading lights from London’s jazz community who have joined forces to form Kokoroko which mixes jazz vibes with an Afrobeat feel. Also performing will be producer, composer and keyboard player Joe Armon-Jones who merges jazz, dub, hip hop, funk and soul, and the soulful Jordan Mackampa who wows audiences with his rich vocals and enlightened song-writing as seen in his debut EP release Physics.
The line-up will feature some top East Anglian musical talent too including Norwich-based Nebula Sun who blend West African music, jazz, soul and hip hop, and Norwich soul singer extraordinaire Maya Law. Also performing will be Kitty Perrin who is known for her deeply personal and caustic lyrics, and the Essex multi-instrumentalist Sam Eagle who twists jazz sounds and plays multiple instruments.
In addition, there will be a host of street food options including the Mexican and Far East fusion menu of Moco Kitchen, the Suffolk-reared buttermilk chicken served by Peck, the Italian flavours of Elsie’s Pizza all cooked in a wood-fired oven, and a celebration of the best Asian dishes at Wok Box.
