FestEvol has added dozens of new artists to its bill for a special edition of one of Liverpool’s standout musical showcases. Some of the finest talent from around the country will join headliners Steve Mason and Juliette and The Licks for the all-day event at Camp and Furnace on May 1.
Hotly-tipped Stockport quintet Blossoms and shimmering shoe-gazers Black Honey lead the new music charge into Liverpool this Spring alongside Heavenly Recordings’ Wirral foursome Hooton Tennis Club, fresh from the success of their debut album The Highest Point In Cliff Town. Deltasonic Records duo The Vryll Society and Hidden Charms also join the bill, as does Ladytron lead singer Marnie.
A plethora of brand new Merseyside based talents will also be on show such as Feral Love, who emerged from the ashes of Bird earlier this year with lush gem Into The Fire. Joining them, Pink Kink, a captivating LIPA formed art-pop group who recently supported PINS. Other additions include Tom Low and War Room Records duo By The Sea and the fast-rising MINNETONKA.
Cavalry, Sankofa, Strange Collective, The Probes, Bathymetry, RongoRongo, Psycho Comedy, Pure Joy, Ohmns, Year Of The Fiery Horse, Little Triggers, Scarlet, Moats and Indigo Moon complete the Liverpool new music collective on show.
EVOL are spreading their wings far and wide to showcase the finest breakthrough talent from all corners ahead of May’s experimental extravaganza, embodied in the booking of Seoul’s Dead Buttons among others.
A tad closer to home Manchester’s Cupids, Man Made and Girl Friend join the bill as well as Halifax garage-surfers The Orielles and groovy Londoners Pumarosa. Completing the line-up come May 1, The Shimmer Band, Estrons, LUNGS, The Amazons, Alibis, Poltergeist and Baba Naga.

Pick up an early bird ticket and get the extra special added treat of a FREE ticket to the FestEVOL Pre-Party where Bad Breeding, FLESH, Bad Acid and more will be bringing the noise to the Blade Factory on April 30.
Today, Bad Breeding have premiered a graphic video to accompany the filthy sound of their new single Corrupting Fist. You can check out the Chris Cunningham by-way-of Banksy visuals of the video below, which makes appropriately uncomfortable viewing, full of politically and viscerally charged imagery. Bad Breeding will they take to the stage ahead of the main FestEVOL programme and as part of their UK tour dates taking in UK cities in April and May.
