On August 2nd 2014, London will celebrate the return of their very promising and fast-expanding event, Visions festival.
Last year’s sold-out show focused on the small yet vitally important things, the bar queues seemed to remain short enough with clashes infrequent as a relaxed and warm-feeling community night out enjoyed a full bill of international talent.
The festival returns this year with a wonderfully diverse and carefully curated line-up featuring a wealth of alternative music from around the globe, spread across different warehouse spaces, a brewery, rooftops and courtyards around London Fields.
The very recent announcement sees psychedelic doom band Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats announced for a special intimate stage headline slot, completing a line up of heavier sounds with Andrew WK, The Fat White Family, Perfect Pussy and our buddies Eagulls plus plenty more.
Want more headliners? Seattle’s Perfume Genius has announced a unique performance for the event, returning for a UK one-off full band show. Elsewhere the festival has announced Canadian synth-pop band Trust, a UK debut for New Zealand blog-hypes Yumi Zouma and newly Matador-signed Copenhagen punks Lower.
Manchester’s rising talent Kiran Leonard also joins the bill, fresh from a stirring performance at BBC 6 Music Festival. Finally, to complete a very exciting day of music across the event, London’s Deptforth Goth will play a special opening set at the festival, his first full performance since his sell-out Union Chapel show at the end of last year.
