Nice Weather for Airstrikes is a Post-Rock festival based at the Druids Arms
Nice Weather for Airstrikes Records present a four-day, free entry music festival from the 27th till 30th May at the Druids arms, Brighton, and will showcase and celebrate the Post-Rock music scene. This event is now in its third year, and fully established as one of the UK's top Post-Rock events.
On Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening from 8pm, the UK's best up and coming Post-Rock, Math and Shoe-gaze bands will be showcased, then at midnight DJs will take over until 3am.
Bank Holiday Monday will see a more stripped down, relaxed affair with electronic, ambient and acoustic artists taking the stage from 3pm until midnight.
The Nice Weather for Airstrikes Festival exists to give innovative and forward thinking bands and musicians a stage and an audience that they would normally get a chance to play to, to showcase a culturally diverse form of art in a city known for its cultural diversity, to give local residents of Brighton and the surrounding areas music that they would otherwise not be able to engage with and to increase knowledge of the often "underground" musical movement that is post-rock.
The line up this year includes: The Strange Death of Liberal England, Monsters Build Mean Robots, Shapes, Evi Vine, The Continuous Battle of Order, Crowns On The Rats Orchestra, Alright The Captain, The Slow Revolt, Juffage, Last Days Of Lorca, Nordic Giants, Theo, Kontakte, Orders Of The British Empire, Galactic Empire
The Nice Weather for Airstrikes festival will be held at The Druids Arms, Ditchling Road, Brighton, from 27th May until 30th May. From 8pm till 3am Thursday-Sunday, and 3pm until Midnight Monday. Entrance is Free.
