More information about Beach Riot tickets

Beach Riot formed back in February 2017 and started playing live at beach bars, parties and venues
on the South Coast to support two previous single releases that picked up natural support from John
Kennedy at Radio X and BBC Introducing, followed by a number 12 on the Amazing Radio chart and a
slot at Reading & Leeds Festival. With 10 months of consistent live shows under their belt now, the
four-piece are prepped to release a 4-track debut EP on vinyl made up of finely tuned alternative
rock and crunchy indie pop tunes.

Fronted by Rory O’Connor (guitars, vocals and songwriter) and Cami Menditeguy (guitar and vocals),
and the rhythm section of Jim Faulkner (bass and vocals) and Jonny Ross (drums), Beach Riot’s line-
up formed when Cami Menditeguy landed in London from her home country of Argentina in a bold
move, as an 18 year old, to front a rock band in a new country.

Living on a horse farm playing guitar alone for so long was no longer an option, so to find funds for a move, Cami made her flight money
by gambling on racing horses and then picked East London’s music scene as her prime new location.
Isolated in unknown territory for two years of being in the big smoke, the breakthrough came when
meeting O’Connor at a local show where they realised they had a lot in common: Ice cream, weird
guitars, PJ Harvey , Mudhoney, 4am mozzarella sticks, dark comedy, dungeons and dragons and
Brighton beach hangover fry-ups. Beach Riot was then born and the gamble paid off.


BERRIES sound has been described as gnarly, frenetic, bridging the gap between garage rock, grunge, sugary pop and everything in between. Their style captures listeners and leads them through interesting breakdowns, big choruses and unusual structures as the three members effortlessly bounce off each other. Their energetic chemistry is often praised, most recently by John Kennedy from Radio X - ‘I love it when they get stuck into the interplay, it's great to watch, excellent stuff'. Hailed as an 'Impressive Power Trio' by Record Collector Mag and receiving regular airplay on Radio 1 & BBC 6 Music they continue to impress.


HYLA are an alternative rock band based in Guildford. Since forming in 2015, they have evolved into an outfit committed to their craft of emotional modern rock. Through cathartic instrumentals laced with potent vocals, they make disillusionment into something we can all jump around to.
