Preview: Underage Festival 2010

By on Thursday, 8th April 2010 at 12:00 pm

Remember when you were sixteen, and the super coolest indie troupe were playing at the super coolest local venue, but hey, you weren’t allowed in, no Sirey, as you, little one, were under the age of 18. Argh, the mass of frustration which followed. Why must tiny digits disallow someone from seeing brilliant music live? Well that’s exactly what Underage Festival thought. And alas, they have flicked their finger to the whole ‘Over 18 only’ cliché, and started an event which is for young ones, and young ones only!

Yes, you are only permitted through the gate of Underage Festival, which takes place in Victoria Park, London, if you are 18 and under. The festival aims to provide an awesome event for those who might not have access to the general gig laden with age restrictions. No alcohol is permitted on the site, and the website even has a section devoted to parents, but despite it’s clean cut ways, each year proves to be a completely and utterly rad party with a fantastic line up to boot.

2010 is no different. Already confirmed to be playing the gig on Sunday 1st August include M.I.A, Ellie Goulding (pcitured right), Daisy Dares You, Chapel Club, Egyptian Hip Hop, New Young Pony Club, Los Campesinos!, Lightspeed Champion, Hadouken!, General Fiasco, Stornoway and Tinchy Stryder.

Kinda cooler than the er, school concert huh?

Tickets for the event are a mere £29.50, so if you’re 18 and under and dig the sound of Underage, why not grab one now? I won’t deny it, I am quite jealous. Damn youngsters!

New Young Pony Club for Skindividual gig

By on Tuesday, 21st July 2009 at 5:05 pm

SkindividualA few weeks back we introduced the concept of the Skindividual gig at the end of August. To join the (already great) headliner of Ladyhwake, they’ve announced that New Young Pony Club will also be playing, debuting some new material from their forthcoming second album. To join them, there will also be the opportunity for a young band (aged between 16 and 24) to get their own guestlist and blag a support slot also.

They’ve also extended the closing date until 31st July (next Friday people!) so you still have an opportunity to be at London’s Garage in Islington on Wednesday 26th August

A specially created new networking site, will allow you to grow a guestlist for the gig via your existing profiles on sites such as Facebook, MySpace, Bebo and Twitter – along with any other ways you can think of. Skindividual members can start a guestlist of your own or join one or more started by their friends.

The ten people with the largest guestlists on July 31st will be invited to submit a short film – taken on a mobile phone, camera or webcam – expressing why their guestlist should win the gig. These films will be judged by a high-profile panel, which includes Jamie Brittain, the 23 year old co-creator of Channel 4’s Skins; Callum Negus-Fancey, the 18 year old entrepreneur and brains behind teen club nights Let’s Go Crazy; and Sam Killcoyne, Founder of the Underage Festival. The one person chosen by the judges will get to take their entire guestlist along with them to the Garage in Islington on Wednesday 26th August.
