The inaugural HADDOW FEST will be held on Sunday, March 28 at various locations throughout the capital including The Bongo Club (450 capacity), Electric Circus (250), Cabaret Voltaire (250), Sneaky Pete’s (100), The GRV (250), Maggie’s Chambers (250) and Whistlebinkies (250). Most venues will open from 1pm-midnight, with the headliners expected to take to the stage at around 10.30pm.
The mammoth line-up of 75 bands features mostly Scottish indie talent such as Idlewild, We Were Promised Jetpacks, The Dykeenies, Sergeant, My Latest Novel, Tango In The Attic, Mitchell Museum and The Gillyflowers as well as a few bands from down south like The Paddingtons and The Chapman Family.
The event is being organised by English promoter Hamish Jolly, who is a booking agent for Towers Of London, London Blackmarket and Edinburgh garage-rock group The 10:04s who, funnily enough, are all on the Haddow Fest bill.
Until a finalised schedule is released there’s no way of telling if your favourites bands will clash, but if you’re happy to take your chances then snap up a ticket for £18 (including booking fees) from here.
