Preview: Underage Festival 2011

By on Thursday, 23rd June 2011 at 11:00 am

A festival tailor made for teenagers (more specifically, adolescents aged between 13-17), Underage Festival *is* the event of the year. With amazing line-ups year after year, 2011’s is of course once again filled with acts that I love. Firstly, there are some big names like Bombay Bicycle Club (pictured above), Brother, Crystal Fighters, Johnny Flynn, Wolf Gang and many more. Bombay Bicycle Club have announced a new album coming soon, ‘A Different Kind of Fix’; hopefully some songs off the album will be played during their set.

That’s not all: some of TGTF’s favourites are also part of the line-up, including Dutch Uncles, Frankie & The Heartstrings and Is Tropical. All the three bands have released albums this year (‘Cadenza’ [review here], ‘Hunger’ and ‘Native To’ [review here], respectively). It definitely will be an exciting experience to finally listen to the album tracks played live, if you haven’t already. There are also some relatively young acts in the line-up, ranging from girly pop (Spark) to hip-hop mixed in with electro (Ghost Eyes).. With such a diverse line-up and a vibrant audience, you can bet that this year’s Underage Festival is going to be a blast.

Note: the festival only admits festival goers that are between 13-17 years of age. Anyone outside of that age range will NOT be admitted. Tickets are £31.50 and can be purchased online from SeeTickets, Gigantic, HMV Tickets and Rough Trade Old Truman Brewery (in person). For more information visit the the official Web site.
