New artists have been added to the lineup for Field Day 2017.

Announced to perform at the London festival are Flying Lotus, Nicolas Jaar (in a UK live exclusive), Death Grips, Moderat (a London exclusive), King Sunny Ade, Mura Masa, Whitney, DJ Nina Kraviz, and Omar Souleyman.

The latest announcement follows the news that Aphex Twin has been confirmed to headline The Barn: the festival’s indoor brand new second main stage, in his first UK headline show in five years.

Aphex Twin will be headlining on Saturday night for an exclusive two hour set in the "hanger-like construction" which includes a state of the art high-powered sound system and "one of the most technologically advanced lighting rigs around".

Now in its 11th year, Field Day has hosted acts such as Caribou, Skepta, Patti Smith and Pixies.

Last year's event saw the likes of PJ Harvey, Mystery Jets and John Grant perform in Victoria Park for the 10th anniversary of the festival.
