Circa Waves have decided to take action on their own bid to champion new talent by curating their very own event, Circa Fest, which will take place in Liverpool in April.
With the festival selling out in 24 hours, the band has also used the opportunity to release ‘Sad Happy’, the first single from the ‘Sad’ side of their album.
On Saturday 4th April, the band will headline their own festival and do so alongside some of Liverpool’s most exciting new and emerging acts, paying tribute to some of the most iconic long-standing venues in the city. Hosted across Liverpool University, Zanzibar And Jimmy’s, the likes of Red Rum Club, Spinn, Pizzagirl, Harrm, Children Of The State, Abby Meysenburg, The Mysterines (Dj Set), Zuzu (Dj Set) and of course Circa Waves will perform throughout the day into the early hours.
“I made my own festival In Liverpool and called it Circa Fest because why not,” Kieran, the band’s frontman said. “I wanted to showcase all of these amazing and talented upcoming acts Liverpool has to offer.”
He added: “And here’s our new single. The whole reason our album is called ‘Sad Happy’. Enjoy the sad euphoria and have a nice cry dance, Best listened to in groups or alone in the kitchen.”
