Preview: Southsea Fest 2013


The festival season is almost over and the new academic term is slowly creeping closer. Student loan still seems so far away and, yet, as the evenings start to cool as we approach Autumn there is still a bit of summer spirit kicking around inside you. If that’s the case, then the south coast’s award winning Southsea Fest could just be what you’re looking for!

The all-day festival takes place down at various venues along Portsmouth’s Albert Road on Saturday 14th September and it boasts a handsome line-up of emerging and underground talent including Future Of The Left, Drenge and Veronica Falls. In previous years Bastille, Dry The River, Django Django and Pulled Apart By Horses have graced the festival and this year organizers hope to once again turn Albert Road into the new music mecca of Hampshire this September.

Over 100 artists will be descending upon the city, playing to over 3000 people and with acts ranging from the distortion-heavy vibes of Drenge to the beauty of Arrows of Love, the psychedelic Temples to the… unique…  Anamanguchi as well as local bands including previous AIM Frequency headliners Kassassin Street – there is something for everyone at this ambitious festival.

NME quipped that this is “the sweatiest gig you could go to this summer” and headliners Future Of The Left will no doubt excite crowds with their energetic mixture of heavyweight guitars and bright, indie melodies in the intimacy offered by this local festival.

With tickets still available at £18, you’d be silly to miss this opportunity to indulge in some great new music and see out the last weeks of summer on a budget!
