In response to the developing coronavirus situation in the UK, Bad Sleep Festival is now cancelled. Our box office team will be contacting all ticket holders in due course. Please do bear with us, as a small number of staff are dealing with an unprecedented volume of activity. Your patience is greatly appreciated.
Catch the UKs hottest up and coming bands across 3 stages at Exeters newest festival.
Its hard not to smile when Cassia are in the room be it during an interview or watching them joyfully play headline dates to sold-out audiences. Their infectious personalities glow just as much as their sun-drenched calypso sound which, as Clash described, transforms even the dreariest of days into a feel good carnival. Cassia combine the positive indie pop of bands like Foals and Vampire Weekend with the jazz-tinged afrobeats of Fela Kuti and Ebo Taylor and American folk influences like Paul Simon to create an individual sound that uplifts. In the words of Gigwise, the music comes from a band on a mission to spread positivity.
‘…a muscular slug of sugar-coated power rock’
‘A flourishing reputation for live shows’
Anticipation is building ahead of the release of October Drifts debut album Forever Whatever on January 24th. Picture The National with fuzz pedals, add in one of the most blistering live shows in Europe right now, and youre still not even close to the impact this band will have on you. Guaranteed to get Exeter moving this April.
PLUS Hotly tipped Bristol indie-pop band Make Friends / Noisy and energetic duo Moriaty, whove been making waves on both sides of the Atlantic / Exeters shoe gaze trio Soot Sprite, who have just released a brilliant EP which is generating a real buzz / Frantic and energetic buzz band Mother Vulture / Local favourites Dead Ground with their passionate, riff heavy and melodic rock / Bristols Pollyanna Blue, who are new on the scene and building a reputation for heartfelt and hard hitting alt-rock
AND a whole stage of acoustic talent, including our SECRET HEADLINER (were struggling to keep this one quiet), Hamish Goodwin of indie folk band The Lures and more TBA.
Be part of Exeters flourishing indie rock scene!
