VISIONS festival announces its first wave of music acts and additional non-music events. The East London multi-venue festival returns on Saturday 4th August 2018.
Last year saw VISIONS celebrate its fifth edition with performances from SOPHIE, Liars, Zebra Katz, Blanck Mass, Jenny Hval, Shame, Goat Girl, Cosmo Pyke, Kero Kero Bonito and more. The one-day event has progressively grown each year adding new venues, spaces and outdoor spots within London Fields, with past performances from the likes of Young Fathers, Holy Fuck, The Fat White Family, Jens Lekman, Poliça, Camera Obscura, ESG, Perfume Genius, Loyle Carner, !!!, Mykki Blanco, Elf Kid, Anna Calvi, Perfume Genius, Andrew WK and Micachu.
For VISIONS 2018 the festival welcomes HMLTD - following their sold out Electric Ballroom show and ahead of their forthcoming debut album, the hugely exciting London collective will play a special set and look to create a unique playing space in one of the Visions venues. Fast-rising punk band IDLES also join the bill for an exclusive London festival performance following the release of their critically acclaimed debut album ?Brutalism'.
VISIONS is also thrilled to host some of the best alternative acts from around the world, including American indie-rock band Chastity Belt and Zambian born singer-songwriter Sampa The Great. Canadian electronic duo Blue Hawaii and Australian multi-instrumentalist Carla Dal Forno will also perform. VISIONS will also have some of the best new talent from across London on the bill. BBC Sound of 2018 nominee Nilufer Yanya will perform, alongside saxophonist and singer-songwriter Laura Misch and newcomers Girlhood, Sports Team, Black Midi and DUDS.
Many more acts are still to be announced in the coming weeks.
VISIONS also offers various non-music events which include firm favourites such as the Dog Show, Record and Zine Fair and the Street Food & Craft Beer Market. We are excited to welcome back Punk Rock Karaoke. More to be announced in the coming months.
Focusing on accessibility and highly alternative entertainment, the festival remains an affordably priced ticket at just £30, with a wealth of different acts to see and things to do in some of city's best new venues and spaces - smack bang in the middle of a hazy London in the mid-summer.
VISIONS is brought to you by promoters Rockfeedback and Bird On The Wire and, in association with London in Stereo.
Early bird tickets have already sold out - tickets priced at £30 are now on sale and available here.
