Detestival Announce First Wave Of Acts For 2014, Including Sleepy Sun, Turbowolf, Pins, Slaves, Lola Colt & God Damn
After an amazing first year that saw two-sold days featuring the likes of Toy, Hookworms, Temples, Bo Ningen and Wolf People, this year’s event has been extended to a 3-day extravaganza at The Queens Social Club, Sheffield on April 18th-20th 2014.
Originally founded and curated by the cult Yorkshire ‘death blues’ duo Wet Nuns in 2013; the 2014 edition now returns with three nights of decadence and a line-up of some of the most progressive and exciting acts around.
The first wave of artists for 2014 can now be announced as Sleepy Sun, Turbowolf, PINS, Slaves, Lola Colt, God Damn, Brown Brogues, Vladimir, Happyness, Big Difference, Bad Guys and Jazz Hands – Louder Than War have been supporting many of these bands from their inception; check out the Related posts for PINS, Brown Brogues and Lola Colt reviews.
Festival curator Rob Graham said of this year’s event:
“This year we’re back and we’re bigger. Same as last year we stuck to the idea of trying to put a line-up together that was populated with acts that we like, both on an artistic level as well as personal one. Since last years event we’ve seen: Toy better their first record with the beautiful and brave ‘Join The Dots’, Hookworms go from playing mid-bill to playing the final ATP at camber sands and releasing probably the album of the year, and Temples support the fucking Rolling Stones at Hyde park. Here’s to another great weekend of bands that will blow everyone’s minds and make waves!“
Advance Weekend tickets are on-sale now for just £30.
