A brief history: The festival that started in 2007 showcasing early performances by the likes of Florence and the Machine and Crystal Fighters returns this year, after a short hiatus, in a new iconic park setting. 1-2-3-4 has teamed up with legendary event producer Rob Hallett and his team of expert facilitators at Robomagic to build on the 1-2-3-4 cult status and create, what is set to be, a new, bigger, better festival experience.
What other people have said: “The 1-2-3-4 festival has earned a solid reputation that makes it stand out from the seasonal clamour. It brings together a typically east London combo of indie attitude and artiness, not unlike a live action fanzine.” – METRO
Gigslutz Top Tip: This is The Jesus and Mary Chains only festival headlining slot this year, so take full advantage and get your shoegazing dance on and make like Jim Reid in a leather jacket. Set on a small urban island this year, too, the festivals settings are set to be a fully immersive experience for festival goers with 360degree stage views. We’ve been promised secret sessions, surprise guests and a plethora of street food stalls to tuck in to, too.
Be sure not to miss: TOY! The indie-psych 6 piece have been on every ones on-to watch since their debut live performance in 2010 and have since perfected their fuzzy sound to festival slots and some of London best venues. With energetic and polished live performances being their strong point, be sure to catch them at 1-2-3-4.
