DRILL:BRIGHTON is delighted today to announce the completed line-up for this December’s festival, which will host over 100 acts from around the world. Curated by Wire and One Inch Badge the festival will take place 4th - 7th December at various venues across Brighton, with an official pre-party on December 3rd with Big Business and God Damn.
The four-day event will see a multitude of incredible artists performing, including Wire, SWANS, Savages, British Sea Power, Toy, Courtney Barnett, Gold Panda, These New Puritans, Young Fathers, The Wytches, Claudio Simonetti’s GOBLIN performing SUSPIRIA, MONO (JPN), East India Youth, Three Trapped Tigers and a one-off world exclusive collaboration between Wire & SWANS. Highlights added today to this incredibly strong list of over 100 acts include incredibly intimate shows for The Wedding Present and Blood Red Shoes as well as Rose Elinor Dougall, Verity Susman, Gemma Ray, Sons of Noel and Adrian, Tigercub and many more. There will also be a host of artists, talks, & films being showcased throughout the weekend.
Having previously created DRILL:FESTIVAL events in both London and Seattle, this is the biggest & most ambitious to date. It’s a way of exploring the impact Wire have had on groups from younger generations & also to give them the opportunity for the band to connect with both new & established artists whose work they find inspiring.
