It's with a heavy heart, but also a great sense of relief that I have to announce that there will be no Wrong Festival in 2019. If any of you have ever put on an event like this I'm sure you can empathise with the amount of work that goes into it, and the pressure involved. Planning begins the summer of the year before, and when putting on a festival takes over your life for the best part of your year it begins to take its toll. Wrong is mainly organised just by myself, and while its been a success, the amount of financial risk taken, and the effect on my mental health has been too large to ignore. I'd rather bow out with two years of amazing shows and fond memories than have the day become a millstone around my neck in the future, which is a definite danger, especially when trying to balance a full time job, running a record label and being in a touring band. Some incredible moments came from Wrong, including getting to work with some genuine musical heroes of mine, and I've made a great many friends because of it. I know the festival means a lot to many of you, but right now I simply can't keep up with what's needed to do it justice. It may return in the future, but if and when is uncertain for now. My love goes out to everyone who's helped the festival, the wonderful artists who've played, and most of all, the excellent people who made up the crowds. Keep making music, and look after yourselves and each other.

BAND BIOS >>>

Elevant 
Elevant are a visceral, exciting and smart rock band. Able to blend genres effortlessly whilst always retaining their own sound that can kick you in the gut or softly soothe (on occasion), they spin dark tales of modern day disillusionment. They combine crushing riffs with warped sonic textures and irresistible grooves, all whilst maintaining a knack for infectious hooks. Their new EP has seen widespread acclaim, as well as playlist spots on radio stations such as KEXP and KCRW in the US, as well as others worldwide.

SPQR 
Listening to SPQR is like being a passenger in a speeding car, at 2am, with a body in the boot and a driver you’re pretty sure put it there. They’re like a musical representation of the minds of Cronenberg and Lynch, bending a sinister slink to their dirty art rock. The rhythm section of Bex Denton and Jack Sanders provide the foundation for Peter Harrison's freaky guitar colourations and his intensely passionate, crystal clear voice to burrow into your mind. Recently featured in The Quietus, they're they're in a rude run of form in anticipation of their debut EP, The House that Doubt Built.

Gravves 
Matching Future of the Left noise and humour to Queens of the Stone Age hooks and seductive sleaze, Gravves are noise merchants bar none. With their debut EP Rattle garnering acclaim and bagging them a host of festival appearances this year, their live ferocity matches the record. They occupy that space where a strange duality of punk fury, alt-rock hugeness and truly infectious songs coexist. Blasts of vicious feedback live alongside a sinister swagger in fantastic songs.

Kapil Seshasayee 
Kapil Seshasayee creates avant pop bar none, a sound unlike any other. A one man combination of Scott Walker, Mark Hollis, Bjork, and Richard Dawson, creating something wholly unique. He combines Big Black style drum machine beats with thundering baritone guitar, stunning vocals and and a penchant for unorthodox instrumentation such as the aquaphone. Truly experimental yet still accessible. He was also recently featured in The Quietus talking about his forthcoming concept album about the Indian Caste System.

Pocket Apocalypse 
Pocket Apocalypse are epic and intimate all at once. Effortlessly blending unpretentious post rock grandeur with alternative rock and progressive flourishes, their songwriting is taut and rich with experience, the band playing off each other effortlessly. Frontman Nick Jones' passionate and absorbing vocals can range from a delicate whisper to soaring and melodious and to a righteous barbaric yawp. His and Chris Catterall's guitars intricately weave together, spiralling in tandem whilst in a rhythm section bar none, Phil Dunn (Drums) and Leandro Cuzzocrea (Bass), Lock into unison and lend their songs not only hypnotic grooves, but a craftsman's detail.

Black Pudding 
Black Pudding are a garage rock band with a twisted sense of humour. Born from the ashes of Leeds noiseniks Stilts, they filter their righteous anger through a seductive veneer, with a knowing wink and a punk sneer. With a touch of the Ty Segall/Thee Oh Sees thickness to their riffs, The Wytches' foreboding gloom and The Cramps' weirdness, they have everything a growing boy needs. Their forthcoming singles Sci-Fi Si and Tillagio have already been playlisted on KEXP.

Salt the Snail 
Salt the Snail are raucous, hardcore inflected punk rock, with their tongues placed firmly in their cheeks, and their mic stands probably in two pieces. With an unbelieveable start to their career, they've managed to play with Fucked Up and The Membranes in their first run of gigs, and are set to release a single with Loner Noise this year.

Federãles 
Federãles are what would happen if Fugazi didn't take themselves seriously, and had Iggy Pop. Combining Dinosaur Jr style slacker guitar with elements hardcore punk and a devilish sense of humour. On top of that, they possess an electrifying live show.

Bleach Sweets 
Born from frustration and boredom, Bleach Sweets are a savage noise rock two piece, their songs bristling with acidic humour and equally acidic feedback. They come on like the bastard child of the Melivns, The White Stripes and Frankie Boyle, but with all nuance removed.

Wrong announcement poster 1
We're proud to announce the first of our lineup, we have Brighton Surf-Doom merchants The Wytches, the absolutely insane Heck, underground heroes Part Chimp, Glasgow's finest psychonauts The Cosmic Dead, one of the finest noise rock bands in the country in Blacklisters, and Loner Noise's very own Elevant.

We'll be announcing more over the coming weeks and months.

Something WRONG is happening.

WRONG Festival are extremely pleased to announce the full line up for the unmissable second-year outing of the vital oddball rock music festival. Set to take place on the 28th of April 2018 at Liverpool Docklands, they’ll be shining a spotlight on talent from both the burgeoning local, and UK-wide, Freakscene. 

£12 Super Early Bird tickets and £15 Early Bird tickets are now sold out, with Discounted Advance tickets priced at £20 on sale now via Skiddle, See Tickets and Dice FM from: https://wrongfestival.com/tickets 

Joining the already-announced 2018 headliners, cult Cardiff rock band FUTURE OF THE LEFT (feat. members of Mclusky and Million Dead), organisers are pleased to reveal that MUGSTAR will be performing alongside DAMO SUZUKI as his backing band for the evening. 

Also appearing as part of the newly announced clutch will be: politically-minded Manchester noiserockers GNOD, Britain’s dirtiest doom-metal band CONAN, abrasive Bristol noiseout bunch SPECTRES, noisy progressive Leeds artpunks BILGE PUMP, fellow Yorkshire post-punks THANK, London alternative math-rock outfit DEATH AND THE PENGUIN, rising Brummie garage punks TABLE SCRAPS, Leeds noiserock trio IRK, local garage noise quartet OHMNS, the stoner/doom of BURIED SLEEPER, and acerbic experimental punks ALPHA MAID. 

Also populating the stages across the three venues will be further newly revealed additions including London rock duo TOKYO TABOO, garage rock two piece SONS, psych-tinged jazz punks LUCY LEAVE, Liverpool prog beasts BISCH NADAR, and heavy punks SALT THE SNAIL in a special VS set with BLEACH SWEETS, in which they'll face off with alternate songs picking who goes first with a coin toss. Joining them will be industrial noise band LONESAW, Bristol dreampop artist PATCHWORK GUILT, noisy psych-rock quintet PSYBLINGS, Liverpool rockers SWEARWOLVES, and a special DJ set from former MUMS drummer LEWIS O’NEILL. 

Elsewhere on the bill, festival organisers Loner Noise Records will be showcasing their own raft of talent with appearances from their roster including weirdrock trio ELEVANT, hotly-tipped artrock pals SPQR, doom-groove noise-mongers GRAVVES, singer-sludgewriter KAPIL SESHASAYEE, garage punks BLACK PUDDING and industrial post-punk band NASTY LITTLE LONELY. 

WRONG Festival organiser Michael Edward commented on the additions: "I'm incredibly proud of this line up. I always try to make my way to as many sets as possible when I put on the festival, in between all the running around organising things, and this year I'm going to have my work cut out. Gnod made my favourite record of last year. Conan are legends, and are one of Liverpool's greatest bands. Spectres are an absolute hellscape. 

“I've done my best to spoil everyone for choice from the top of the bill to the bottom, and with a breadth of genres from punk rock to psychedelia to doom metal to noise and even to dream pop. Some of these acts are genuine musical heroes of mine, so it's an honour to be able to put on an event like this. It's also nice to feature most of the Loner Noise roster once again. Really it's just a cross section of bands that I adore, and I hope everyone else will too."
