Surprise! Our free music festival Etc. is back for 2019 at London’s Old Blue Last

Four shows, loads of ace bands, totally free. Don't say we're not good to you, Dear Reader.

We’re half way through 2019, Glastonbury is done, the sun is out – it’s time for summer, right?

As if we didn’t need more to be excited about, we’re adding one extra thing to the pile. Our free music festival, Etc., is returning for a second year – and it’s kicking off THIS WEEK!

Yep, we’re returning to the Old Blue Last in London for four shows, packed with new, emerging and – erm – ‘mysterious’ acts set to blow your metaphorical socks off. Each date is free, with tickets available through Dice.

We’ve got some top of the table talent booked in, too. We kick off this Wednesday – 3rd July – with the magnificent Mosa Wild. The Glassnote-signed bunch has a new EP on the way and come Very Highly Recommended Indeed. Alongside them come two of our very, very favourite new acts – the brill Blossom Caldarone and the indie-tastic Ed The Dog. Bangers ahoy, and all that.

Then, on 10th July, we’re back again with the amazing Apre, plus some special guests TBC ‘very shortly’, followed by something very very sparkly on 24th July, where the ‘International Men of Misery’ (nudge nudge, wink wink, check back later – Ed) will be joined by Vistas and On Video for a show which will live long in the memory, we promise. We can’t wait.

We tie the whole run up in a nice bow on 31st July with the Officially Five Star Rated Queen Zee, who will be joined by Brighton punks Guru to send us out in style.

We’ll have a few more acts to announce over the coming weeks, so keep ’em peeled.
