Test Pressing Festival
LNZRT, Bad Vibrations and Snap, Crackle & Pop are proud to announce Test Pressing, a new multi-venue music and arts festival in Tottenham on Saturday 28 April.
The festival will welcome both UK and international acts to the area whilst shining a light on the local artistic community and creative projects already happening in Tottenham.
The experienced promoters have curated an eclectic line up with anarchic Toronto punks METZ topping the bill following the release of their ‘Strange Peace’ LP on Sub Pop in 2017. In amongst the first batch of names are the post-punk shoegaze audio visual duo The KVB, garage rock stalwarts Jacuzzi Boys, Copenhagen synth-pop pair First Hate and London's Desert Sound Colony.
Also on the line up so far are Manchester newcomers Duds, the first UK band to sign John Dwyers’ Castleface Records, minimal electronic duo Xeno & Oaklander and Useless Eaters side project Marbled Eye.
Continuing the live line up minimalist dark-disco duo Happy Meals travel down from Glasgow and they'll also be joined by Italian garage rock band Bee Bee Sea, enthralling rockers Crows and alt-punk newcomers Sistertalk with more to be announced over the coming months.
On the DJ front, NTS host Gary The Tall, Rye Wax resident Proteus and left field party hosts Left Alone will be playing an eclectic mix of techno, new wave and synth into the early hours with more names to be added.
Test Pressing will utilise two venues recently welcomed into Tottenham’s burgeoning creative scene, Real Gold run Five Miles and converted warehouse and terrace Styx. Away from the purpose built spaces, the the day’s events will also feature live music, art, film, and food at Bones and Pearl, The Cove gallery and Grow Tottenham. All venues are located within 10 minutes walking distance of Tottenham Hale tube station.
LNZRT are the programmers for renowned live music and club spaces Moth Club, The Shacklewell Arms and The Waiting Room while independent promoters Bad Vibrations and Snap, Crackle & Pop have recently celebrated their 5th and 10th birthdays respectively.
