Washed Out Festival returns for 2019 - New venues and first bands announced!

A message from the organisers:

Washed Out Festival has announced that it will be returning in 2019 - but this time it will be bigger and better than before. The festival will be taking place on Friday 12th April from 18:00 until 02:00 and on Saturday 13th April from 13:00 until 02:00, making it a spectacular two day event across multiple venues in the vibrant seaside resort of Brighton.

Washed Out Festival is a city festival rooted firmly in Brighton’s thriving DIY community. It is curated by a team of driven and passionate promoters, who champion DIY whilst cultivating mainstream success. Washed Out aims to build a community via a DIY approach to art and punk culture. The festival will be taking place across a number of Brighton’s best underground music venues and idiosyncratic bars.

Venues for this years festival will include all of our usual favourites; Green Door Store, The Prince Albert, Quadrant, The Hope & Ruin, Latest Music Bar and East Street Tap (but No Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar RIP). Whilst new additions will include Patterns. That’s a total of 7 venues jam packed with new breaking bands and some you’re most likely already very already familiar with.

Once again we will be bringing you some of the best bands and artists that the DIY scenes have to offer us! Feast your eyes on the first lot of bands to be announced: All Better, Americansignlanguage, Bitch Theme, Bloody Death, Cady, Charlotte Light and Dark, Death and the Penguin, Death by Shotgun, Doe, H_ngm_n, Mean Caesar, Modern Rituals, Pocket Dread, Public Body, Punch On, The Menstrual Cramps, The Winter Passing, Throwing Stuff, Triple Sundae, Woahnows and Yr Poetry

We look forward to welcoming you all to Brighton next year for a punk rock party by the sea.
