The 1234 Festival // The 405 Preview
Coming up on the 1st of September (that's tomorrow) in Shoreditch Park, The 1234 boasts punk veterans Buzzcocks for its headliners, alongside a swathe of much newer, smaller acts worth looking out for. All walking distance from Shoreditch's notoriously 'hip' bars and clubs, (some of which will be hosting after parties for when the in-a-feild part of the festival is done), and usually flaunting a few fair ground rides as well as all the music, the day festival, now in it's fifth year, certainly promises to be a great way to spend a Saturday.
We'll be most hoping to catch London/Japanese punks Bo Ningan, the sweet dream pop sounds of Porcelain Raft, soaring dark electro pop from Visions of Trees, the Californian noise pop of Crocodiles, and the lo-fi synth loveliness of Brighton boy Gross Magic.
Gracing one of the four stages will also be the likes of Savages, Dirty Beaches and The Duke Spirit.

And you can get a flavour of what we'll be in for on the 1234 compilation album, which you can listen to on the festivals website, here.
Have fun, and we'll see you there!
Today is a very good day as we're able to bring you the exclusive unveiling of the Live At Leeds stage times for 2012! Now the real pain starts...do you go see Marina and the Diamonds, or Los Campesinos!? Niki & the Dove or Weird Dreams? Hey Sholay or Jess Mills? Friends or Charli XCX? These are all tough questions to answer, but hopefully having the schedule a full 3 weeks ahead of the event will enable you to create a perfect plan of action. [read more]
