Hackney Wonderland announces first wave of acts

Indie and psych acts taking over London venues include We Are Scientists, Swim Deep and Lucy Rose. 

Following the success of a sold out sophomore year last year, Hackney Wonderland has expanded to two days of the best need-to-know indie and psych acts playing across five London venues.

Founded by legendary indie promoters Cherry Cola Club, in association with Jack Rocks, Hackney Wonderland is set to be an intimate showcase of known favourites and ones to watch.

With headliners We Are Scientists five albums down the line, and boasting a very favourable reputation playing alongside Swim Deep who play the festival fresh from their North American tour, Hackney Wonderland (while only in its third year) is establishing itself as one of the most exciting festivals around.

Also playing across the venues are Lucy Rose, Kitty, Daisy & Lewis, Stealing Sheep, Hooton Tennis Club, Crocodiles, Is Tropical, Jake Isaac, Demob Happy, Syd Arthur, Misty Miller, The Shimmer Band, and many more, plus more acts to be announced.

– Oval Space – The Laundry – London Fields Brewery – Sebright Arms –
– The Pickle Factory –

Hackney Wonderland takes place from 15-16 October

Tickets from £20 + BF per day (Early Bird – Limited Availability)
