With Field Day under a week away we’ve chosen 5 artists we think you should check out.
Theo Le Vigoureux (aka Fakear) is a young man making a HUGE name for himself. The 24 year olds ‘easy on the ear’ blend of electronica has already brought the artist to the attention of a wealth of radio stations and established artists across Europe, and Field Day promises to be another opportunity to for him to add another entry to his already impressive musical CV.
Born in Caen, Le Vigoureux drops his ‘Animal’ LP on the 10th June and this follows a whole host of EP’s that have all received more than positive praise from the likes of MIA, Annie Mac, The FADER and ODESZA.
We spoke to the artist about Field Day and how his 2016 has panned out so far…

I didn’t know Field day before, it’s the first time to me. I saw the line-up, and i was so impressed by so many huge names !

It’s been so well ! I prepared my album since the beginning of the year, so it’s an highlight itself ! I played for the first time in the US, i was so happy to do it.
