With one month to go, the full line-up of music and events for the SOLD OUT Lost Evenings Festival can now be revealed. This fantastic 4-day festival, taking place on 12th-15th May at London’s iconic music venue, The Roundhouse will see Frank Turner curate and headline four consecutive one off concerts, with an exciting supporting cast of musical talent confirmed for both the main stage and a second stage that will run alternately each evening.
On Friday, 12th May Frank Turner & The Sleeping Souls will perform a crowd pleasing Greatest Hits set entitled Last Minutes and Lost Evenings, and supporting that night will be America’s finest AJJ alongside up and coming band New Pagans. Following on Saturday, Frank will perform his debut album ‘Sleep Is For The Week’ in full as it celebrates its 10th anniversary. On this night long-admired musical peer Seth Lakeman will support with Anglo/Scottish duo Deux Furieuses. On Sunday Frank resurrects Nambucca’s infamous former club night ‘Sensible Sundays’ and brings in close pal and musical hero Scott Hutchison from Frightened Rabbit onto the bill and as it only seems right, Nambucca’s very own Beans On Toast kicks off the evening. Closing ‘Lost Evenings’ on Monday 15th May, Frank Turner & The Sleeping Souls unite with Huw Stephens and his Label Of Love to feature Xtra Mile Recordings and showcase the extraordinary talent on the roster. Skinny Lister and Will Varley support Frank’s second Greatest Hits set of the series.
The second stage, named as the Nick Alexander Stage –in memory of the merchandise manager and long-time friend of Frank, who was tragically killed in the Bataclan attack in 2015 – plays host to some of the best emerging acts all hand-picked by Frank and Radio X’s John Kennedy. Friday’s bill is Crows, Bloody Knees and Moses; Saturday has Young Romance, Bless and Guise; Sunday hosts Louise Distras, Lewis Bootle and Uri Sade and finally Mondayfeature’s Xtra Mile acts Ben Marwood, Ducking Punches (solo) and Non Canon.
In addition to the evening performances, OneFest will run a selection of events during the day, that include panels focusing on The Business, Women & The Industry, Getting Gigs, Mental Health, Digital Generation as well as a keynote speech from Radio 1’s Gemma Cairney – plus much more.
