A festival that attracted 30,000 attendees to see acts like Jorja Smith and Skepta on its ‘putting Enfield on the map’.

The three-day Field Day event, which moved from Brixton’s Brockwell Park to Enfield Council’s Meridian Water site ran from June 7 to 9 and featured a range of artists including Diplo and Pusha T on an outdoor stage and warehouse sets.

The £6 billion Meridian Water redevelopment project aims to provide 10,000 homes and 6,000 jobs. The first phase of 725 new houses is due to be completed by 2022.

Most of the concert goers arrived through the new £46 million Meridian Water station, which was officially opened on June 3 and was mainly funded by Enfield Council.

Enfield Council leader Cllr Nesil Caliskan said: “We hope Field Day is the first of many festivals that we host in Enfield. We have proved we have the infrastructure and the expertise in this borough to make this sort of undertaking a success.

“We have huge ambitions for Meridian Water and the borough as a whole and hosting large scale festivals puts Enfield on the map and shows we are open for business.”

The council is soon expected to announce its shortlist of partners to help provide further key infrastructure for the next phase of Meridian Waters development, which will provide 250 affordable homes and employment space.
