5 must-see acts at Outlines Festival
Last month Outlines Festival completed their 2017 line-up by announcing 40 new artists including post-punk outfit The Membranes, psych band Flamingods and LA soul singer Kadjha Bonet.
The 100-strong bill will perform over March 3-4 at multiple venues around the city. A wide range of genres are represented, and the local music scene will be showcased through performances from the likes of The Crookes, Blood Sport, Alvarez Kings, Liberty Ship, Matic Mouth, Trash and Seamonsters. Fans of electronic music are well catered for following the announcement of a number of after parties organised by some of Sheffield’s best club promoters and featuring names such as Romare and Lamont on the decks.
There’s certainly plenty to take in over the weekend, but to aid with your pre-festival prep we’d highly recommend getting yourselves down to the following five gigs…
#1: Jagwar Ma
Psychedlic Aussie trio and our January cover stars are worthy headliners this year. Their 2016 album Every Now and Then was a swirling, trippy triumph and you can expect a similarly immersive experience at their live shows.
#2: Lady Leshurr
Making the Queen of Grime title her own, the Midlands MC has taken the UK urban scene by storm in 2016. Hard-hitting bars and infectious energy means you’re guaranteed an engaging performance every time.
This Leeds five-piece bring a wonderful cacophony of crunching guitar, throbbing basslines and howling vocals to the table.
#4: The Orielles
Get stuck into the soaring harmonies and sumptuous surf pop from this highly-rated Halifax trio.
#5: Slow Club
We can guarantee sleek, soulful ballads and general guitar pop perfection from one of our favourite duos.
