~ First Wave Of Music Announced ~
~ Early Bird Tickets On Sale Now ~
It’s with tremendous pleasure that Southsea Fest unveils its first wave of acts for it’s eighth year, as tickets go on sale for the one day, multivenue event along Albert Road in Southsea, Portsmouth this September 20th.
Dinosaur Pile-Up, Fear Of Men, Laurel and Brontide lead the announcement for the biggest grassroots new music event in Britain this Autumn.
Early Bird tickets are available now from http://bit.ly/1khKasM.
Once again the line-up includes many of the country’s most exciting up-and-coming talent from the worlds of rock, alternative, indie, punk, folk and pop – hosted across intimate and explosive spaces along one street, with the Kings Theatre still to be announced.
Tickets are on sale now priced at just £12 (advance EARLY BIRD) for an adult all-day pass, and £10 for a teen (aged 14-17, advanced EARLY BIRD) ticket. Under 13’s are free. They’re available now via http://bit.ly/1khKasM.
Described by Pitchfork as “a kind of delicate, twilight indie pop swirl” Fear Of Men’s debut album was released this month to much acclaim, the band confirmed alongside Dinosaur Pile-Up, once described by the Guardian as “part Nirvana, part Foo Fighters, with the punkishness turned up” and “great, rowdy fun”, their blistering post-grunge will lend well to the post-summer intensity that Southsea Fest has become renowned.
Also on the bill is Hampshire native Laurel who last December the Guardian championed as, “taking
influences from Britney, Laura Marling and Lana Del Rey… [she] makes woozy, slightly subdued pop”, her track ‘Fire Breather’ being a breakout online hit this year. Having recently supported Paramore at Wembley Arena, Eliza And The Bear join Brontide who DIY have supported in saying the instrumental crown sits firmly upon their head, to craft this first music announcement.
At Southsea Fest the focus is on new bands and creating a level playing field for emerging talent. There’s no extra ticket needed for bigger acts, queues around the block, or VIP lists – this is a grassroots adventure in new music discovery… the way it should be… easy, simple, and honest.
Your one ticket allows access to all venues, all day, from midday until around 2am. With previous acts to perform including Bastille, Django Django, Pulled Apart By Horses, Future Of The Left, Dry The River, and just last year Thumpers, Drenge, The Family Rain, and Splashh, Southsea Fest is fast becoming one of the country’s leading events for new music discovery, and certainly the biggest new music festival in Autumn with over 120 acts due to perform.
The first wave of acts for 2014 include;
Dinosaur Pile-up – Fear of Men – Laurel – Mazes
Brontide – Eliza And The Bear – Pawws – Blessa
100 Onces – Alpha Male Tea Party – Bad Grammar – Beautiful Boy
