Peter Doherty to headline Yard Life Festival
Peter Doherty has been confirmed to headline Yard Life Festival, a brand-new one-day festival in East London, on 28th April 2012. The festival date is, so far, the ex-Libertines singer’s only confirmed London date this summer, after a recent string of secret London gigs and a subsequent European tour.
Yard Life is a free festival, with ‘invites’ instead of tickets. If you want to go, head on over to http://yardlifefestival.co.uk/ and register for an invite. The invites are free, Yard Life simply ask that you make a £10 donation to the MS Research charity. All artists on the line-up are playing for free and all profits from the festival will also be donated to the MS Research charity.
The line-up is no one-trick pony though. It will also feature sets from international DJ Rory Phillips, London-based electro three-piece Filthy Dukes, returning indie heroes, Hatcham Social, who will be releasing their follow-up album ‘About Girls‘ in early April and our very own DEATH2DISCO residents, Ic1s.
Aside from the incredible line-up, Yard Life have also set aside dedicated areas for showcasing all manner of creative brilliance. A cinema area will showcase films from some of London’s finest film-makers, an arts area will showcase cutting-edge installation art and Judy’s Affordable Vintage Fair will be hosting their famed vintage market. It’s all about an amazing day of incredible talent being showcased and enjoyed from folk bands to DJ’s to graffiti artists to illustrators. It is free but invite only to ensure the right music and arts loving crowds get tickets, which will guarantee the atmosphere of the year!
If you’re not lucky enough to get your hands on an invite, stay tuned to BlagSound.com as we’ll be there on the day bringing you the lowdown on all the best bits with reviews, interview and exclusive backstage shenanigans. And remember kids, you heard it here first
