Micro music festival ‘strikes back’ in New Brighton

Off the back of the success of the recent micro music festival, it ‘strikes back’ as the all-dayer ‘Micro-FestEvol Part V: New Brighton Strikes Back’ at Hope Anti-Supermarket, New Brighton, on Saturday 26 March 2022.

Featuring a co-headline from Gen & The Degenerates, fresh from their first Radio 1 play of their single Girl God Gun and on the eve of their Skunk Anansie support tour, and Liverpool’s pulsating rock’n’roll outfit The Heavy North who release their long-awaited and highly anticipated debut album Electric Soul Machine’ on Saturday 23 April.

The line up also features an eclectic mix of rising Merseyside based artists who will all be playing their own original material with Joeys, Trudy & the Romance, By the Sea, Husthtones, Casino, Lucy Gaffney (FestEvol’s special guest from Belfast), Ambedo Blue and The Quiet Man all confirmed to play.

The all-day music festival promoted by EVOL kicks off at 4pm and runs through to 11:30pm at the formerly abandoned Co-Op supermarket now re-Christened Hope Anti-Supermarket which is located on Victoria Road and is a new addition to New Brighton’s Victoria Quarter which is fastly becoming a cultural hub for musicians and artists from around the country.

New Brighton based promoter Revo said, “We’re delighted to be back at Hope Anti-Supermarket for our second event following the success of January’s sold-out debut at the space.

“The first one (Part IV) was more or less an experiment to see how the area would take to having a concert venue in its midst and we proved the concept works and have shown that there is a strong desire to see live music in New Brighton once more.

“As a result, we’ve expanded the line-up and amount of groups playing and we’re very happy with the bill which features 10 crucial artists who’ll be making their own waves this year”

Tickets are priced at £10 in advance and are available online via Seetickets.com and Skiddle.com and in person at Rockpoint Records on Victoria Road with no booking fee on cash sales.
