Thursday 2 September
6pm: Kaska (Katarzyna Gawlik) (Band name: KAŚKA)
Inspired by the poetics of space, Polish artist KAŚKA creates alternative soundscapes where electronic pop meets with jazz, soul and ambient music. Swing by to experience a sonic collage of dreamy vocals coupled with spacious synths, saxophone, bass and drums.
8pm: Nicole Plant (Band name: Plant)
Singer, songwriter and producer Plant is a London-based electro-pop artist from Portland, Oregon. Combining dark synths and playful vocals, Plant’s songs dance along a precipice of emotion. Join her solo performance, and follow her down a whimsical journey into enchantment
10pm: Cameron Schiller (Band name: Jenny Alien)
Jenny Alien is a Chicago born, London-based artist whose rowdy and creative appetite for genre-bending conjures whimsical and relatable experiences of a twenty-first century woman.
Jenny Alien’s PureGold performance is destined to be a circus of chaos: uninhibited and irreverent, Alien takes no prisoners as she paints a profound sonic landscape of rebellion and womanhood through her playfully sardonic hyperpop repertoire
Friday 3 September
4pm: Mike Barrett (Artist name: Brand New Moon)
Brand New Moon is the project of London-based singer-songwriter and producer Mike Barrett. Combining expansive, evolving sound-worlds with vivid melodies and intricate wordplay, the show will feature tracks from his latest album ‘A Quiet Place to Land’ alongside new compositions and visuals that represent a possible new direction for his work.
6pm: Live Schulerud (Band name: Mörmaid)
