From Saturday 25th to Sunday 26th August, Fat Out Fest, the Manchester-based, DIY festival, returns to Islington Mill for its second year, with a dark and electrifying storm of a line-up set to blast away the other summer festivals.
Weekend tickets cost £25 and give full access to two days of more than thirty ear-bending and diverse bands, a market space filled with stalls of artists and independent record labels, local artwork, face-painting, fancy dress, delicious grub and, ultimately, a teeth-shattering two-day party in the enchanting setting of the old mill building in Salford.
Highlights for the Saturday include Norwegian pulverisers Arabrot, the avant-metal usurpers Talons, the hotly tipped Queer’d Science and newly reformed Manchester D-beat legends Hammers.
Sunday offers an exclusive solo performance from the Queen of Siam Lydia Lunch, autumnal-folk hero Alexander Tucker, ex-This Heat/Camberwell Now innovator Charles Hayward and the inaugural live performance from occultist electronic group Young Hunting.
Emma Thompson, who founded Fat Out in 2007, said: “We are really excited to be back for a second year with an even more varied and experimental programme. As we grow with our regular gig nights and festivals we hope to provide increasing opportunities for people to make a living from their art, to be able to employ stronger environmental policies and to continue to put on unforgettable parties!”
Fat Out Fest is set to be the fattest and loudest little festival this summer – Don’t miss out!
