FESTIVALS

Gunnersville Festival: 6th – 8th September 2019 LONDON

The weekend of the 6th-8th September, Gunnersbury park, in West London, will host three days of music, where concert and festival lines are blurred. But, it’s the Sunday you want to be going to. You Me At Six are going to do a historic performance to hit you all in the nostalgia. They will not be performing any old headlining slot; they’re playing all their singles- in order! All the way from ‘Save It For The Bedroom’, through to their darker period where ‘Bite My Tongue’ came about, up to the most recent lively release ‘What It’s Like’. The weekend will see slots from the likes of : Jimmy Eat World, The Maine, Deaf Havana, Doves, The Specials and many many more. It’s not one to be missed. Tickets are still on sale now at £35 so grab some before it’s too late.

Twisterella Festival: Saturday 12th October MIDDLESBROUGH

The North Eastern town of Middlesbrough will be hosting the multi-venue festival Twisterella, on Saturday 12th October. The venues are all within walking distance of each other, not far from the highstreet, with: The Townhouse, Westgarth Social Club and Teesside University SU being a few of them. Twisterella is known to sell out so make sure you don’t miss out and grab a ticket, they’re a bargain at under twenty pounds, for a line-up seeing people like Red Rum Club return to the area after a Glastonbury slot this summer. Then there’s St Agnes, Vistas and Bloxx, who are also not to be missed if their gigs this year have been anything to go by.

Neighbourhood Festival: Saturday 12th October MANCHESTER

Manchester’s multi-venue festival is back with a bang! Last year the one day event featured the likes of Everything Everything and Temples play to sold out crowds across the city centre. This year is no different with headlining acts including Miles Kane, Fat White Family and The Sherlocks and many more big names on the lineup. As always, the festival showcases  homegrown Mancunian talent having Phoebe Green and The Blinders play. This year’s emerging lineup is astounding and we highly recommend that you grab yourself a beer and squeeze in sets by Sophie & the Giants, Lady Bird, Inhaler and Lauran Hibberd. You will not be disappointed! With over 100+ bands playing over 15 iconic venues you would be stupid to miss a night like this.

SPECIAL GIGS

Pulled Apart By Horses

The Leeds based lads in Pulled Apart By Horses are touring intimate venues from the end of September through to October. They’re playing small venues, in lesser known towns like The Georgian Theatre, in Stockton-On-Tees, to test out some new material they’ve been working on this year. They’ll be playing in close quarters with the fans, so be prepared for sweaty hair flicks to the face, as they’re a wild bunch live. Not one to be missed.

The Midnight Beast

This December will see the ultimate parodying trio, The Midnight Beast, tour the UK for their 10th Anniversary Tour. The cheeky charmers had all three of their albums hit number 1 in the iTunes comedy charts, when they were released and are known for their funny music videos too, one of which (Tik Tok) has recently been re-made, especially for their anniversary. Whilst it’s amusing, it’s also a painful reminder of how old we’re all getting, as some of the things in the lyrics don’t actually exist anymore, for instance MSN and Bacardi Breezers.

Frank Turner & The Sleeping Souls

Frank Turner may well be playing the big cities on his No Man’s Land tour this winter, but it’s a special set-up he’s got this time, which is why it shouldn’t be missed. The show will be split up into two sets, the first will be a solo set, with new material from his new album and the second set, will be a stripped-back performance with his band The Sleeping Souls. His tours always seem to sell out too, so if you want in on this special tour, then book quickly.

YOU NEED TO CHECK OUT:

Fenne Lily

The Bristol-based singer/songwriter Fenne Lily released her debut album ‘On Hold’ in 2018 which deals with the well-worn themes of a classic break-up record. Following in the footsteps of Joni Mitchell and Laura Marling, Lily’s music is embedded with deep and personal emotions as she uses her uncompromising vulnerability in her debut album. Her music is minimal with the driving force of her songs being her powerful voice with soft acoustic melodies, forgiving harmonies with the occasional aching synth scattered in there. Touring this December with Julia Jacklin, Fenne Lily is an artist to catch! Her music is powerful and emotional and those emotions will only be enhanced when performed live – I imagine this gig will be a slightly spiritual experience.

Frankie Cosmos

The Indie-pop group Frankie Cosmos started out as a prolific home-based solo project by front-woman Greta Kilne back in the early 2010’s. The native New Yorker was a young teen in the late 2000’s and has worked that quirky New York era and her love of poetry into her music with wistful melodies, joyous compositions and anxiety-ridden lyrics. Their music is soft, peachy and littered with 60’s flower power vibes. As the days get shorter, colder and darker hold onto those warm summer evening feelings by heading to a Frankie Cosmos gig.
