Well, it’s time. Today, we’re ringing the bell for our online festival Homeschool – and to get things started, we’ve got some last minute line-up tinkering for you.
Homeschool features over 200 of our favourite artists, who have contributed intimate sets from around the globe – many self recorded from their own from rooms via laptops, webcams and mobile devices. Taking place across the bank holiday weekend, you can tune in at homeschoolfest.com.
To get things started, we’re delighted to announce a few late-comers to class – namely Aeris Roves (Hype, Friday. 15:40 BST), Caro (Main Stage, Sunday, 14:50 BST) and Braids (Alt Stage, Sunday, 17:55 BST). We’ll – possibly, maybe, no promises – have a few more surprises up our sleeves across the weekend too. Keep ’em peeled for more.
In less joyous news, Spector have been forced to drop out of their daily Homeschool Radio breakfast show. We’ve still got a whole heap of exciting stuff playing out across the weekend, though – kicking off at 10am today with Talk Show’s Death Row Diner. You can listen to that on Dork Radio, or on as part of the festival’s Extra Tent line-up via the Homeschool website here.
In addition to showcasing a range of incredible performances, Homeschool is also raising much-needed awareness of the incredible work of frontline medical staff and volunteers here in the UK – encouraging donations to the NHS Charities Together Covid-19 Urgent Appeal throughout the weekend. More information on the appeal can be found here.
Friday’s Homeschool line-up features the likes of Tom Grennan, The Aces, L Devine, Alfie Templeman, Bloxx, The Sherlocks, The Ninth Wave, SPINN, Bad Sounds, Born Ruffians, Tim Burgess and more. You can find the full schedule for the weekend here.
