As label pieces together 10th anniversary plans...

A vital voice in independent music, Transgressive simply feels new, young, vibrant.

It's remarkable, then, to think that it was ten years ago that the time put out their first record. Piecing together plans for their tenth anniversary, the imprint have tied up a partnership with Field Day.

Now almost two weeks away, the London event will boast a number of DJ led events showcasing the entire breadth of the Transgressive roster.

Here's the line up:

Saturday 7th June:
Mystery Jets DJ Set
Dry the River DJ Set
Marika Hackman DJ Set
Becoming Real DJ Set
Transgressive Sound System DJ's

Sunday 8th June:
Pulled Apart by Horses DJ Set
Theme Park DJ Set
Thumpers DJ Set
Dry the River DJ Set
Transgressive Sound System DJ's

"Eat Your Own Ears and Field Day have had a long history with Toby and Tim and Transgressive over the many, many years. They have built an incredible roster of acts and are always forward thinking and inspirational in their approach. So it's a real pleasure to host and welcome some of the brilliant Transgressive artists, some familiar, some brand-new, to Field Day to play special DJ sets across the stages." Tom Baker (Field Day)

"Field Day has created some of Transgressive's favourite ever live music memories - including Foals' first ever festival headline appearance in its second year. When we were mapping out parties, festivals and events for our 10th Anniversary this year, it felt like an obvious choice to present something with Tom and the Field Day team. However, we wanted to do something a bit different - so thought we'd turn some of our artists into DJs for the weekend. A few of our crew will also have a go to try and make people dance. We'll all see you there." Toby L (Transgressive)

Field Day runs between June 7th - 8th.
