looks RIGHT up my alley! SO.....do i/we get tickets now or wait for the (possibly) inevitable freebies that will be knocking around nearer the time....

To be honest, in normal times, at only £27.50 a pop, for that quality a line up, its a no brainer. However....daughters need xmas pressies.....

Yeah, definitely interested in this. Looks very interesting, and a decent price too.

What have events at Brockwell Park been like before? Is it OK for transport links? I'll be coming up from Kent, so probably change at Bromley South and head to Herne Hill.

I'd say go for it. £27.50 is cheap enough, and it's supporting smaller acts, rather than a bunch of millionaires

Only big one AFAIK was Field Day last year, and that didn't go down with the locals so they moved for this year: http://www.brixtonbuzz.com/2018/10/field-day-festival-pulls-out-of-brockwell-park-for-2019-with-organisers-not-applying-to-lambeth-council-for-a-licence/

It'll be interesting to see what they've done to get the locals on board this time. Probably a smaller event, less space and less people.

They mentioned that they'll be sharing it with Cross the Tracks and Mighty Hoopla

 

I've got a feeling that King Gizzard might headline ngl

Just booked for this. Looks like a very solid first announcement!

I read that the organisers are some of the people originally involved in Field Day (before they got booted out of VP by APE). Does anyone have any more info on that?

So I've been listening to more of Girl Band today beyond last year's excellent album and I came across their cover of Blawan's "Why They Hide Their Bodies Under My Garage" on the Early Years EP.

Jaw-dropping stuff! And after looking at some of their recent setlists, it looks like they play it live as well! See you down at the front!
