Washed Out festival weeks away

Looking like it has caught the imagination, Washed Out is a two-day festival, 13th-14th April, spread across seven venues, and featuring more than 50 bands, covering the spectrums of punk, emo and hardcore. These are musical genres that have generally eluded the mainstream and so-called ‘cutting edge’, but Washed Out is rooted in Brighton’s underground, and dynamic DIY live music community, where there is a huge appetite for loud, in-yer-face rock.

Amongst the acts booked this year are Ducking Punches, Gender Roles, Loa Loa, Birdskulls, and Patchwork Natives.
