Fest fields Radiohead, Beasties

Around 30 bands confirmed for the two-day gathering

Radiohead and the Beastie Boys will headline an all-new music and arts festival in June called Field Day, to be held in Calverton, New York, on the north fork of Long Island.

Cast in the model of legendary U.K. fests like Reading and Glastonbury — and more recently the West Coast event Coachella — Field Day was conceived by TicketWeb co-founder Andrew Dreskin as an event that combines performances, contemporary art and other forms of “self expression.”

Along with the headliners, roughly 30 bands are confirmed for the two-day fest. Slotted for June 7 are Beck, Underworld, Thievery Corp., Interpol and Liz Phair, among others. The next day’s roster includes Sigur Ros, the Roots, Elliott Smith and N.E.R.D.

Promoter Bravo Entertainment serves as the main talent buyer for the event. Tickets go on sale Friday, and a portion of proceeds will benefit various charities.
