The Best of The ‘Future’ Set To Take Bestival By Storm

By | Published July 15, 2016

One of the best bits of every festival season is finding new music. Whether its a new, upcoming band, or an established solo artist you haven’t yet discovered, there is always something exciting to stumble across. Luckily enough Bestival organisers have gone ahead an announced a stage dedicated to all the best rising acts, The Invaders of The Future Stage.

Rob da Bank stated: “Once more we’ve gone mentally diverse from Radio 1 and SXSW darling’s Danny L Harle, Pup and Sunflower Bean through the amazing Eska and a takeover from the hottest label out there, PC Music, to local island talent Born Ina Barn and Xockha. See you down the front!”

With bands like Spring King, backed by Zane Lowe and Brooklyn three-piece, Sunflower Bean having released massive debut LPs this year, there will be plenty to please your ears. Brighton trio The Wytches will be playing the festival again, this time ahead of their second album, ‘All Your Happy Life’ due for release in the same month, bringing their fuzzy chaos to the stage. Their tour buddies and fellow Brighton crew, Black Honey will be blasting their stylish indie rock too. Having announced another headline tour across the UK in November, Spanish slacker rockers, Hinds are set to be a big highlight. Bands on the rise, Vant, The Sherlocks and Pretty Vicious are not to be missed, as are Pup, JP Cooper and The Japanese House, and well, everyone else playing the stage.

One things for sure, you should definitely keep an eye and an ear out for this stage and with Rob Da Bank’s track record, you can almost guarantee you’ll find one of your favourite ‘future’ musicians or tracks.
