Win a pair of tickets to Radfest with Nudie Jeans
Your chance to catch A Place To Bury Strangers and more at the awesome South London event
In association with Poster Roast, This Is Music and Nudie Jeans, Radfest take their one day behemoth of punk rawk and summer-good-vibes to the deepest, darkest depths of Elephant and Castle's independent creative arts organistaion; Corsica Studios. To top last years lo-fi slacker pile-up, Radfest give you two stages of live music, a smorgus board of dj's, beers, barbeques, sexbeat goody bags, summer fun and an outdoor courtyard that David Attenborough would die for!
It's no biggie. But they do have A Place To Bury Strangers; the heaviest band in the world, to melt your face on their only UK summer appearance; the sublime and ethereal West Coast summer pop of Ganglians; some trashy-as-hell top secret Californian special guests, the hippest hardcore from NYC's guardian backed skate punks - Cerebral Ballzy; Glasgow's finest innovative live electro pioneer, Dam Mantle; the whacked-out destructo Japanese psyche of Bo Ningen, the first show with a nu line up from shoreditch's stylized surfed up horror movie fanatics, Graffiti Island; dark swirling shoegaze from cooler than the Fonz Brooklyn duo Von Haze; alongside the heart melting multi instrumental pop of Leeds based newbies Bear Driver and the first show ever from No Pain In Pop's dreamy bedroom poppers Echo Lake already revered by Pitchfork and the like!
All this, plus some killer dj sets from Trash Talk, Matador Records, Wichita Records, Lovvers, Loud and Quiet Magazine, Neu Magazine, No Pain In Pop, Sex Is Disgusting Records, This Is Music, Sleep All Day Records and of course Sexbeat Dj's! They will obviously have a pretty awesome diy record fair featuring distro's, merch stalls and small labels peddling their wares; the nice chaps from Poster Roast [www.posterroast.com] will be screening exclusive - limited edition posters on the day!
All this for the pretty-mega price of just five English Sterling!
