So we’re officially on the eve of Dials Festival Portsmouth’s newest music festival taking place across various venues in Albert Road with 40 + bands spanning across the day and evening plus an afterparty featuring Rowan of Kassassin Street, Billy Colburn and Fuzz Tones all deejaying the Wedgewood Rooms and Edge of the Wedge until the later hours.
The line-up at Dials consists of some of the “buzziest” emerging acts in the country who if you’re a regular listener of BBC 6 Music or a reader of the likes of NME, Mojo, DIY etc you will probably be well aware of many of the acts playing. The line-up consists of the likes of Hooton Tennis Club, Kagoule, Fickle Friends, Black Honey, Dingus Khan, Crushed Beaks and many-many more plus some of the finest acts from around the area. The times and stage splits for Dials have been announced and you can plan your day ahead at Dials Festival with the Clashfinder here so you can workout at what point you’re going for that burrito/pie break.
You can check out the Dials playlist below of a number of the acts on the bill and you can purchase tickets on the day at just £20 if you haven’t got them in advance at £18. Entry allows you in to all venues (age permitting) and you can see some of tomorrow’s festival heavyweights in an intimate setting plus an afterparty which is free to Dials wristband holders. Also our label arm Strong Island Recordings are offering a 30% discount on all label merchandise to Dials wristband holders in Strong Island Co on Saturday. You can keep up to date with Dials on Facebook and on Twitter on @DialsFestival. Hopefully we’ll see many faces there for Portsmouth’s newest multi venue, community based festival.
