Against all odds, Small Pond are delighted to announce that their Bad Pond festival returns for its fifth year on Saturday 19th December 2020 for a very special FREE live stream event, headlined by alt-rock cult hero Jamie Lenman.
All bands will be performing live from Ooosh! Tours Studios, the event runs from 2.30pm – 10pm GMT, and further details of how to take part will be shared on the official Facebook event: https://fb.me/e/XXBrP0OL
With the inaugural event held back in 2015, Bad Pond is an annual festival that sees Brighton-based promoters Small Pond bringing some of their favourite bands and artists to make a huge noise in their south coast hometown, and they aren’t about to let COVID-19 put a stop to proceedings, despite having to postpone this year’s event back in spring.
Completing the line up this year, the danceable, reinvented post-hardcore of ex-Reuben frontman (and now solo sensation) Jamie Lenman will be joined by ferocious four-piece rockers Saint Agnes, a rapturous blend of post-rock and post-classical from A.A Williams, the upbeat math-tinged bedroom pop of Orchards, hometown alt/indie-punk faves Gender Roles, the righteous feminist electro-punk of CLT DRP, and the lush synth-laden alt-pop of Yumi And The Weather.
As is now traditional, the line-up takes in all flavours of experimental and alternative music, with a gleefully heavy streak, from both world-renowned and newly discovered acts alike.
Bad Pond is proud to be a Keychange festival. PRS Keychange is a pioneering European initiative which empowers women to transform the future of the music industry and encourages festivals to sign up to a 50:50 gender balance. Find out more about Keychange here.
