The festival wing of Small Pond takes place over both rooms of The Arch, on Brighton seafront, from 27th – 28th April. This will be the third instalment in what looks to be a growing event for fans of experimental and progressive music, with Tangled Hair, TOSKA, Slabdragger, Yumi and The Weather and Gender Roles recently announced additions to a bill that already includes TTNG, The Physics House Band, Delta Sleep, Cousin Kula, CLT DRP, Suffer Like G Did and Wild Cat Strike, amongst many others, with more announcements expected soon.
Fully up-and-running for just over two years now, Small Pond is a young music company centred on a thriving recording and rehearsal studio complex in the heart of Brighton. Turning a hand to all aspects of the modern independent music industry, the company also offers live filming and photography, touring services, and gig promotions, as well as being home to a record label. Applying the same keen ear for attention-grabbing music to their own roster, the Small Pond label is home to acts including The Physics House Band (a recent Guardian New Band Of The Week) alongside rising artists Natalie Evans, Inwards, InTechnicolour, Wild Cat Strike and Luo.
