6 Bands you cannot miss at Southsea Fest 2016

Returning for its 10th year, Southsea Fest is back next weekend for its biggest and best year yet. With over 20 venues, including the legendary Pyramids for the first time ever, the festival will host over 100 bands in Southsea on the 1st October 2016.

You can find the full line up for this years Southsea Fest by clicking here. But here are six bands in you definitely shouldn’t miss at the event!

Full times for these gigs are yet to be announced, but we’ll add them to this post when they’re up!


We saw the band back in March supporting Man Made at Joiners and have been impressed ever since. Couldn’t believe they’d only been playing live together for just under a year at the time!

Happy Accidents

We were lucky enough to catch Happy Accidents just by chance last time they played Southsea Festival. The band have recently released their debut album ‘You Might Be Right’ earlier this year.

Fugitive Orchestra

Fugitive Orchestra is a Portsmouth based musician whose sound is self-described as a fusion of Alternative, Jazz-infused, Bluesy Hip-Pop. His latest EPHeterochromia (a genetic condition resulting in a person having two different coloured eyes) was released recently.

Eat Fast

The sharp, fuzz-rock band, Eat Fast were featured as one of our “track of the day“s earlier this year with their track ‘Fenham Dreadlock’. The band are also about to head out on tour alongside Honeyblood who are also playing at the Southsea Fest. One not to miss for energetic live performances.

The Bayonettes

The Bayonettes are a Portsmouth based, indie rock and roll band. The band’s latest single ‘Generation’ was released last month and is self-described by the band as having ” a bit of a psych feel to it, a nice catchy riff and a real feel good factor”. You can find our recent interview with The Bayonettes here.

Temples Of Youth

We first saw Winchester based, electronic duo, Temples Of Youth supporting Sundara Karma back in May. We were instantly impressed by the atmospheric, meaningful and even melancholic sound they produce.
