Adding to a varied and international bill, cult Scottish indie-pop faves CAMERA OBSCURA play a special London festival performance. One of the most exciting new pop acts around, Las Vegas’ SHAMIR returns to London following the release of his fantastic album on XL Recordings in May. Swedish musician JENSLEKMAN joins the bill, providing a taste of new material from his forthcoming new album. Also joining us, Swedish pop duo JJ alongside Florida’s new rock and roll titans MERCHANDISE, and finally hotly tipped London acts PIX and OSCAR – fresh new signings to the 4AD and Wichita record labels respectively. More acts are still to be announced in the coming weeks.

Born from the same Toronto post hardcore / noise scene that produced METZ and Burning Love, Greys wear their influences on their sleeve.

Support comes from female post punk group PRIMETIME and punk hellraisers CLAW MARKS.
