Rising, phoenix-like, from the ashes of the Odd Box Weekender this brand new festival brings a heap of exciting acts to The Shacklewell Arms via three promoters with a keener-than-keen eye for some of the sweetest music around. Taking place over three days, bands are travelling from all over the globe to partake in this celebration of the DIY scene and culture, so we’re expecting a positive and life-affirming event. A brief glance over the line-up reveals a host of LiS favourites such as Two White Cranes, Trust Fund and Tim Ten Yen, but we’re equally excited to just get lost amongst the fun, and learn about some brand new acts. Hell, if Otoboke Beaver are coming all the way from Japan, we can definitely hop on the 76 bus to Dalston.
To aid that learning, the good people from the festival have compiled this playlist to get us better acquainted with the acts that are playing and, if you like what you hear; good news – we’ve got a pair of weekend tickets to give away, and all you need to do is tell us the name of your favourite London venue.
