Giving music fans the chance to see the best new alternative artists before they reach mainstream success, Underground Festival returns to Gloucester for 2019.
Having previously hosted huge names such as Bastille, Lower Than Atlantis and George Ezra, the Guildhall-based all-dayer is a haven for lovers of rock, indie and punk music, and offers a great opportunity to discover your new favourite band.
Headlined by Honeyblood, who will be playing material from their new album In Plain Sight, the band head to Gloucester following a phenomenal summer of festival appearances.
Also appearing are Welsh pop-rock band Dream State fresh from appearances at Reading and Leeds Festivals; and recently awarded best UK breakthrough at the Heavy Music awards.
Other names to grace the epic line up are math-pop band Orchards; new wave band The Ninth Wave; and upcoming alternative soul star VC Pines; along with a range of local Gloucestershire musicians and bands.
New for 2019, Underground Festival will also host its own one-day music conference in the Guildhall Cinema:https://www.soglos.com/culture/cinemas/25226/Gloucester-Guildhall-Cinema, where musicians, songwriters and aspiring managers can attend an afternoon of panels led by industry professionals.
In collaboration with PRS for Music and BBC Introducing the talks will include sessions from A&R, promoters, rights agencies and artists to help those planning a career in the music industry.
Underground Festival started its life as a free festival, but gradually found the necessity to charge for attendance as its headline acts became bigger and better. However, a reimagining for 2019 has led to the festival returning to life as a free-of-charge event.
Although tickets for the music festival and conference are free, they must be booked in advance. The all ages event is open to all, but those under the age of 14 must be accompanied by an adult.
