Resident Advisor – Early birds still remaining
Party For The People – Early birds sold out



Container is the stripped-down, beat-oriented electronic project of Ren Schofield, who sculpts vicious punk sonics into raw jackhammer rhythms.

His crunchy beats, low-tech decay and fist-pumping zeal have struck a chord with an electronic dance music scene that is once again craving techno that is hard, heavy and elemental‘ — Resident Advisor


Housewives are a genreless band from London who play experimental music that points to the future. Using prepared guitars, expansive electronics, percussion and saxophone they create an enveloping sound often using odd time signatures and antithetical song structures. Their kinetic live sets have cemented their reputation as one of the most exciting live bands in Europe; championed by the likes of Tom Ravenscroft (6 Music), Radio 3 Late Junction and pioneering experimental musician Charles Hayward. They join the likes of Liars, Animal Collective and The Knife at the forefront of forward looking music this decade

Adrena Adrena

Adrena Adrena is a collaboration between visual artist Daisy Dickinson and drummer E-Da Kazuhisa, previously the drummer of the Japanese noise band Boredoms and currently British electronic/post-rock band Seefeel (Rephlex, Warp Records).

The duo cut a raw blend of drums, noise and organic visual work, featuring in their performances an eight foot white sphere that hangs above Kazuhisa’s drum kit and which Dickinson maps videos on to; her work was described by William Barns-Graham of Fluid Radio as ‘cosmological and transcendental, drawing attention to the wonder of the earth and our sensuality on it’.

The latest release from D.U.D.S. is a deepening of the sinister sonic territory they have been exploring, in various forms, since they formed. Bass lines and percussion lope through the undergrowth while jagged guitars pierce the ears. Then there’s the brass section, which works less as a means of driving home a song’s point, than as a warning that whatever comes next is unlikely to be anything you expect. Lyrics are still somewhat hard to make out, emerging from the rhythmic chaos at intervals, as though you were listening to the recording of an Old Testament prophet, preaching from the ruins of the twenty first century. I don’t know what kind of band D.U.D.S. are supposed to be. There are labels you could apply to them, terms like ‘wave’ and ‘punk’ with various prefixes designed to qualify the fact that they don’t really sound like anyone else. Immediate makes that fact all the more obvious and all the more compelling.

Legendary era defining emo-math rock, from one of the best bands ever to crawl out of Grimsby and into the wider UK DIY scene. Andy, Glenn and Ritch will return to the stage for a special one off performance feat. brand new material and some out and out classics. You’re not going to want to miss this.


Eşya is a new solo project from Ayşe Hassan (Savages/Kite Base), an unsettling, beat driven, and wonky exploration of alternate personas. Transgressing comfort zones by experimenting with the complex and contradictory ideas that can exist within one person. An industrial pop existential exploration.

Her self-released debut EP Absurdity of Being, is the first in a series of releases exploring the myriad manifestations of selfhood through a whirlwind of FM and analog synths, drum machines and for the first time on record, her vocals. Incorporating sounds and visuals she has recorded whilst touring with Savages in various countries over the last 6 years.

Hyperstition Duo
Summoning egregors of the anthropocene, Hyperstition Duo plunge deep to deliver a maximalist collective immersion into their own lysergic phonosphere. Lurching, polyrhythmic pathways crumble and re-assemble; elastic dynamics snap; propulsion sparks from the nerve-centre of machine and corporeal entanglement. Featuring ex-members of Blood Sport, templexing, möbius loops and cybernetic subjectivities abound in an attempt to conjure escape vectors in a world of ubiquitous sound.


Mathy pop punk with Cork accents and a serious case of the jerky jangles. Together as a Yorkshire-based music group since early 2016, Eimear O’Donovan (bass, vocals), Brian Scally (drums, vocals) and Chris Saywell (guitar, vocals) have been making modest waves in the DIY scenes of their adopted cities of Sheffield and Leeds.
