visions festival 2019

Visions Festival in East London has been a huge success previous years and 2019 looks as though we’re still on the same path of fulfilment.

Held across five venues with three outdoor areas to congregate around, this one day event on the first Saturday of August begins with a dog show, also includes a session of ‘Doom Yoga’ (does what it says on the tin) and has been a great event in the past that promises to be repeated again this August.

It’s worth checking out the whole line-up before this event if the last few Visions Festivals are anything to go by, especially the names you may not be familiar with at the moment. Last year for example, we saw Black Midi for the first time, Blue Hawaii, Rival Consoles and caught up with HMLTD, Idles Sports Team just to name a few.

There’s loads we can recommend that we’ve seen before.

Anna Meredith combining her classical background with electronic songs is something as uplifting as you’ll need at the end of a long day. Wooze will bring to the stage their brightly-coloured outfits and catchy tunes that you simply should be listening to by now. If you’ve not witnessed Scalping yet then now is the time to experience these four guys from Bristol, before you’re complaining about tickets not being available due to high demand. Squid will keep your interests up in between the thrilling ride that Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs and Iceage will provide. Pregoblin, White Denim, Black Country New Rd, Free love and Talkshow are all names we’ve been aware of that we’ll be trying to visit again and all that before we’ve even began trawling through the artists whose names are (at the time of writing) still unfamiliar to us.

This event has been superb in the past and we trust the quality on show will be just memorable after this years event.

Don’t miss out.

Keith Goldhanger -- Spent the 90's as a frontman with London noisemerchants HEADBUTT - spent the 80's in "Peel favourites" BASTARD KESTREL. Spent a few years mashing up tunes and remixing bands as HIDEOUS WHEEL INVENTION. Is often out and about getting in the way of things and bumping his head on low ceilings - drinks real ale, takes photo's has made a few short films. Will give your band the time of day but will dislike any band that balances full pints of alcohol on the top of guitar amps (Not keen on lead singers that wear hats either).
