A snapshot of the street style at Aphex Twin’s head-melting London gig

Dazed’s Chester McKee headed to Victoria Park to capture what people wore to All Points East and Field Day’s first big weekend of the summer

The weather might largely be grey, grotty, and miserable, but London’s summer festival season is in full swing. With hangovers from Houghton just about banished, and sad girls everywhere wiping their streaked mascara off their cheeks post Lana Del Rey and Ethel Cain, last week, All Points East once again took over East London’s Victoria Park for a season of massive line-ups. 

Kicking things off was Stormzy, whose This Is What We Mean gig summoned a massive rainstorm, which, despite soaking most of the crowd to the bone, did nothing to dampen the former Dazed cover star’s mega homecoming moment.

Following close behind was Field Day’s 2023 extravaganza, which this year saw mad Scandi Fever Ray, Dazed fave Kelela, Mother Arca, and Aphex Twin take over the stage with a hardcore, head-melting set. And it’s not over – headline shows from The Strokes, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and Haim are still to come. 

Of course, this being East London, the look was as important as shuffling to the front to get a good spot in the crowd. Most braved Stormzy’s biblical downpours sans coats or appropriate footwear, opting for second-skin mini dresses, oversized sportswear, and trashed denim, while on Saturday, Field Day goers showed up in the city’s rising designers, hand customised DIY looks, and secondhand Depop scores.

Capturing the street style across this first weekend was Dazed’s Chester McKee, who headed to Victoria Park with his analogue camera. Click through the gallery above for a look at who was wearing what, and head back next week for all the fashion from weekend two.
