Follow The Sun Festival, the brainchild of leading UK promoters CloseUp Promotions, makes its first appearance at Edge of the Wedge, Southsea in two weeks time on the 7th July. The festival is set to bring some of the best local and not so local bands to the intimate 100 capacity venue including headliners Wild Front and the recently announced secret sub-headliners, Leeds based Marsicans. With some of these bands selling out venues a lot bigger than this already, it’s a festival that no one should be missing.
Although there’s no excuse to miss any of the bands playing Follow The Sun Festival, here are a few of our top picks!
In brief: Self-described as “supernatural groove rock” band and their last track ‘Honeycone’ was a disco-infused indie-rock track. One of Gosport’s finest bands.
In brief: Bel Esprit are a Southampton based indie-rock band with anthemic tunes and latest track ‘Red Weather’ is another added to their repertoire bringing a darker, heavier side to their sound.
Me and The Moon
In brief: Guildford based trio with charming folk-rock tracks but with a pop edge. The band’s latest single ‘It’s Alright’ is catchy with comforting tones and a huge chorus.
In brief: Headliners of the night Wild Front bring easy-listening indie-pop tracks to the festival. The band are also just about to play the main stage at Isle of Wight Festival on Saturday so catch them in a venue this size whilst you can.
