Portsmouth’s newest festival Golden Touch Festival will grace the Wedgewood Rooms and the Edge of the Wedge this Saturday bringing the best in upcoming, local and touring talent to the city. Tickets for Golden Touch Festival 2019 are available here for just £10 to see 16 bands and none of the bands clash! Although there’s no excuse not to see everyone on the day, here are six bands you really can’t miss.
In brief: Oxford’s Ulysses Wells is set to bring catchy, blues-tinged rock music to the festival with a ferocious, riff-heavy set.
In brief: Macclesfield’s Cassia will bring the sunshine with their melodic, upbeat tracks to the Wedgewood Rooms to headline the festival for a summery end to the festival. The band recently released their debut album ‘Replica’ last month.
In brief: Southampton based singer-songwriter with lively, indie-pop tunes, charming, acoustic-driven tracks and sometimes a cover or two thrown in for good measure.
In brief: Despite only having one track out as of yet, Brother Deep are quickly conquering the local live circuit with their alternative, indie-rock with a twist.
The Pretty Visitors
In brief: A late addition to the lineup but a good one indeed. Portsmouth’s own The Pretty Visitors will deliver a punchy, indie filled set with a very lively performance if their Wedgewood Rooms headline gig in January was anything to go by.
The White Lakes
In brief: Oxford based indie quartet with both punky as well as anthemic tracks. The band also headlined the Edge of the Wedge back in March so if you missed them then, nows your chance.
