The second day of Field Day seems to have been dogged by organisational issues.
The festival made the move from East London's Victoria Park, venturing south to reside in Brockwell Park, near Herne Hill.
Newly ensconced with a South London postcode, the event seems to have encountered a few organisational issues at its new site.
The second – much larger – day has endured reports of large queues, as well as a delay in Four Tet's set.
Due to tent overflow the producer was forced to push his set back, eventually playing for a much shorter time than allocated.
The feedback online has been quite negative. Our full report is incoming, but here's a flavour of what we're getting.
‘ @fielddaylondon Cancelled – last time at this festival for sure! Lessons learnt for the field day team don’t put you’re best act e.g. @FourTet on last on his own. Obviously you’re going to have a crowd overflow! #FieldDay2018 pic.twitter.com/cmNajxl676

Looking at #fieldday and the negativity from people who were there, makes me wonder whether it was worth closing off a small London Park for all half term? Local kids really missed their park @JimDicksLambeth @lambeth_council

Pleading to all people at Field Day! Do not go next year! They do not deserve our money for such a poorly run festival. #FieldDay

Big up #FieldDay for organising an unremitting shitshow from start to finish. Nils Frahm was good though

Field Day have issued a statement, saying:
"There was a pause during the show in The Barn on Saturday evening to allow concerns about congestion to be addressed. We realise this delay was frustrating but the safety of everyone on site is always our top priority and we are grateful to the audience for their patience and cooperation."
