MORE DETAILS ABOUT THIS EVENT
The Horrors The Slits A Certain Ratio Architects Rolo Tomassi THROATS Holy State Factory Floor + Many More!
I think I'm going to get me a ticket for Offset this year. Will The Horrors be this year's Lightspeed Champion?
I'm pretty sure it's the first Slits gig for YEARS too
It's with great pleasure we announce our first wave of artists performing at Offset Festival 2009! And you can get super-earlybird tickets right now.
The first announcement for 2009 is The Horrors, with a performance that will draw upon their critically acclaimed new album Primary Colours - an album you can listen to for free right here.
Joining them will be legendary post-punkers The Slits with a rare UK date; Factory Records' second-ever signing - punk-funk legends A Certain Ratio and forward-thinking artrockers Future Of The Left.
Other stages will host performances from Rolo Tomassi, Architects, Factory Floor, THROATS, Nuke Them All, Maths and a Douglas Hart (Jesus & Mary Chain) DJ Set! Over 150 new and iconic artists are yet to be announced.
Limited Super-Earlybird tickets are on sale now priced at £35 (full weekend) and £45 (with camping) - these will not last long so head over and grab them now.
Offset Festival takes place between 5th - 6th September 2009 at the beautiful Hainault Forest Country Park - an all ages event just 30 minutes from London on the Central Line.

For the nice stuff - we're gonna be making another wave of big announcements within the next month just to let you's know, and of course our New Bands submissions are open on the site for anyone who thinks they'd fit in with us. We're obviously really fucking excited cos we love everyone we've booked, and the fact that we're gonna be standing in front of The Slits and ACR means just as fucking much as being exhausted and delirious after all those months of work came to us standing in front of Gang of Four singing 'Damaged Goods' out to us last year.
So basically, I'm knackered, there's a lot to announce, and cheers for being so positive :-)
