In celebration of the August bank holiday long weekend this year, we decided to curate a three-day billing of live music at East London institute The Victoria. Many of the acts on the bill you will have read about on this site, some may be new. Limited Early Bird Tickets (day and weekend) are on sale now via DICE here.
On the Friday we have live performances by psychedelic explorers Mandrake Handshake, noise/post-rock outfit Butch Kassidy, atmospheric jazz-rock-psych seven-piece For Breakfast and indie heads Flat Party – with warm up DJ sets from Egyptian Elbows and Blitzcat Records.
Saturday will see explosive post-punk act Saloon Dion, art-rock band Gag Salon, experimental noise-rock trio Kyoto Kyoto and indie-pop storyteller Ellie Bleach perform – DJ sets from Sad Club Records and Crawler Magazine.
Then on Sunday we will have Hand Of God (an improv ‘supergroup’ that has seen members of KEG, Opus Kink & Fake Turins play of late) perform a late set, 80’s-leaning synth-pop duo Speedboat, Bristol country-rock lot Langkamer, folk newcomers lilo and dreamy indie newcomers Symbol Soup – Hard Of Hearing DJs to warm up.
Check out all of the acts here on this handy playlist.
