A limited number of early bird tickets will be priced for £15 on sale at 10am tomorrow general sale will then begin for £17 at 10am on Friday. This will be an event that will bring together independent bands, charities and the best independent businesses from the UK scene.
The lineup announced so far is; Tangled Hair, Doe, Kagoule, Kamikaze Girls, Orchards, Bellevue Days, Fresh, Stephen H Davidson (Tellision), El Morgan and Natalie Evans.
Label boss Kevin Douch states: “We’re extremely proud of our roster of UK artists and the scene here in general, so we wanted to put something together to celebrate that, for us, community goes beyond just the music, and so we’re very pleased to partner with a handful of wonderful organisations including Safe Gigs For Women, Heads Above The Waves and Hackney Giving, who we’ll be donating a percentage of all ticket sales to. We’ve spent a lot of time curating what we think will be a perfect day of live music and fun. We’ve even organised the world’s greatest closing party, which we’ll be telling you about shortly…”
Signature Brew will be providing drinks for the event and Temple Of Seitan offers discounted vegan treats for all festival goers.
BSM will aim to include the diverse British music scene and will show the diversity on offer. Label assistant and event organiser Josie Faulkner explains: “I really dislike the fact that festival stages, both in the UK and internationally, have an unfair representation in regards to gender, whether that’s from artists performing or to the people making these events happen. While there’s still a long way to go, across all genres of music, I feel like BSM and all of our label mates – Alcopop! Records, Specialist Subject, Holy Roar – are pushing out bands with less of a gender bias, and I think that’s something we should all aim to continue to achieve in the future.
“After all, it’s the next generation coming through that I’m hoping will look at the industry in ten years’ time and not have to even think about who is represented onstage: that the landscape becomes a fairer shift for all.”
