Friday 5 – Sunday 7 August 2016
Gum Takes Tooth play at The Shed stage at 8pm Saturday.
If you LOVE the weird, the heartfelt, the DIY, the loco, the real deal, the amazing, the tangible, the ephemeral and the joyous and HATE the bland, the sponsor-directed, the heartless, commercial, vacuous, vain and vapid hype of most festivals the then this is for you. This rare event exudes that slippery and priceless essence that the most legendary free festivals was grew out of back in times of yore. Knowing that increasing headcount almost always results in a conversely decreasing quality of experience for those attending, the organisers of this one selflessly do it for all the right reasons, rejecting pressures from Big Promotion and sponsorship, jealous of their fire and substance. Good times, good bands, unique experiences and liberty is 100% assured.
Additionally, both Jussi and Tom will be taking part in the Moonseer performance (Saturday 22:45, The Vortex) and Tom will be playing in Melting Hand (Sunday 22:30, The Shed) .
With top calibre company here at this event put on by possibly the best record company ever to exist [note: we reserve the right to total bias of opinion here]. JB
I’d put my neck out and say that this might well be the best of its kind in London. There certainly hasn’t been anything that comes close in terms of combined weight and fist in the air momentum for underground music of its kind for many, many years. We’re on last on Saturday at MIDNIGHT. Come for a crowd surf. JB
TICKETS – not many left apparently so get on your hover bike.
