Four bands you cannot miss at Icebreaker 2016.

Icebreaker returns for its second year this Saturday (30th January 2016) more triumphant than ever showcasing over 90 bands playing across nine venues along Albert Road, Southsea.

Icebreaker Festival tickets are still available online for £10 or are available for £12 from the box office on the day of the festival.

Here’s a list of four bands we recommend that you definitely don’t miss over the festival.


Alternative three-piece hailing from Reading bringing a mixture of confident, energetic songs which border pop/rock in a strangely good, unique way.

When and where?

Al’Burrito (Upstairs), 16:00 until 16:30.

Bel Esprit

Southampton based quartet brimming with the energy reminiscent of mid noughties indie guitar rock.

When and where?

Wedgewood Rooms, 15:50 until 16:20.


Also from Southampton, Somahigh are reminiscent of 90s Britpop but with a much more electronic, modern edge. Their sound can also be somewhat compared to that of Kasabian’s debut album.

When and where?

The Fat Fox, 19:35 until 20:05

Broken Links

Electronic post-punk three piece from Southampton. With dark, atmospherical instrumentation alongside melancholic vocals, Broken Links could be easily compared sound-wise to Editors and Manic Street Preachers.

When and where?

The Fat Fox, 17:05 until 17:35
