WRONG Festival Line-up

North West independent record label Loner Noise are proud to present WRONG Festival – A Festival For The Freakscene; a one day happening on the 22nd April 2017 at the newly formed creative hub of the Liverpool Docklands.

Aiming to create something truly unique and very special for the first time in Liverpool, organisers are proud to announce that Japanese psych legends Bo Ningen will be topping a bill which brings together the disparate scenes from the heavier and stranger corners of rock music. It will be a bill of rock music on a freaked-out ride, from punk to noise to psychedelia and everywhere in between.

The event takes place across three venues: The Kazimier team’s much lauded new venture Invisible Wind Factory, the latest after-party hotspot The North Shore Troubadour, and local DIY venue stalwarts Drop the Dumbulls. The event will play host to 30 bands across these venues running from afternoon until late at night, and further continuing the party into the wee small hours.

Recently supporting the mighty Primal Scream and originally hailing from Japan but now based in London, Bo Ningen have a ferocious reputation for exhilarating live insanity. The band have released three critically acclaimed albums to date and have collaborated with Savages, earning widespread acclaim from the likes of The Quietus, DIY, Line of Best Fit and The New York Times. They will be joined by a host of underground heroes in the form of Brighton’s finest surf-doom outfit The Wytches, extreme noise mob Heck whose raucous live shows are the stuff of legend, dark-humoured noise rock quartet Blacklisters, Glasgow’ s foremost psychonauts The Cosmic Dead, near-legendary UK underground heroes Part Chimp, the immediate, cutting mutant-pop of Cowtown, and many more. The festival will also introduce bands from the fledgling Loner Noise label roster including ElevantSPQRGravvesKapil SeshasayeeFederales, and Pocket Apocalypse.

A city not necessarily known for its heavier underground rock scene, but one that’s utterly steeped in rich musical heritage, WRONG intends to be the first festival in the city to tie together Liverpool’s extremely talented (if sometimes overlooked) ever-growing pool of visceral and exciting heavy bands, as well as bringing high profile leaders and legends of the Freakscene to the city for rare live outings in the region.

Last year we saw Ocean Colour Scene celebrate the 20th anniversary of their seminal album ‘Moseley Shoals’ in our beloved Moseley Park. We were there to witness two sold out raucous shows which will go down in Birmingham musical history!
We were also lucky enough to have them headline Moseley Folk in 2013 so we thought there would be quite a lot of you interested in Birmingham’s newest and biggest (10,000 capacity) city centre festival!
Ocean Colour Scene will headlining on Saturday 16th Sept with a mega indie line up including Maximo Park, The Coral, The Twang, Carl Barat & The Jackals, Jaws, Superfood plus many more.

The Friday night (15th Sept) will be an electronic affair with some seriously legendary acts including Orbital, Leftfield performing Leftism in its entirety, Faithless (DJ Set), Jagwar Ma & Higher Intelligence Agency.

The Sunday night (17th Sept) will be headlined by Post Punk Rockers; Editors! They will be joined by an equally legendary bill including the likes of The Jesus and Mary Chain, Wild Beasts, Slowdive, Peter Hook & The Light, Nadine Shah plus many more!

This event, along with so many others, firmly stakes the claim that Birmingham is the place to be this summer!  We are sure Beyond The Tracks will become another piece of Birmingham’s musical heritage! Make sure you are there!
Tickets are priced at £45 per day (1st Release – Be Quick) and £49.50 (2nd Release). They will be on sale tomorrow at 10AM via Seetickets.com.

Hope & Glory is a riotous celebration of live music in the immediate shadow of one of Liverpool’s most renowned landmarks, St George’s Hall.

James, Ocean Colour Scene, Razorlight and local heroes The Lightning Seeds all perform at the inaugural edition of the festival, alongside a very special Hacienda Classical performance from Shaun Ryder and Bez of Happy Mondays.

The music line up accompanies a Victorian carnival complete with a litany of sideshow attractions for an exotic, family friendly show that will be stylish yet subversive – think Charles Darwin meets Tim Burton.

Football legends playing darts for charity, Charlotte Church with a late night pop dungeon and a spoken word arena set in opulent gardens are just a few of the standout attractions.

The event takes place on Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th August, with Hope & Glory tickets
