Cosmosis Festival has come a long way in three short years. Having cut their festival teeth by staging cult and underground psych acts in the ramshackle surrounds of Antwerp Mansion, they’re now stepping up in scale and stature with a mammoth line-up at the former Warehouse Project venue.
This Saturday 12th March at Victoria Warehouse, their five stages are flexing musical muscle while diversifying the sounds on show, hosting the likes of Brian Jonestown Massacre, Sleaford Mods, The Raveonettes, Wire and Ulrich Schnauss. Headlining as the cherry on top of a tasty audio cake are the Scottish psychedelian legends The Jesus & Mary Chain.
For those of you itching to stride into the Victoria Warehouse complex and looking to warm up your ears, there’s a pre-festival launch gig at Sound Control on Friday 11th March, featuring The Vacant Lots and more.
In celebration of our brand new website launch, we’ve teamed up with Cosmosis to give away a pair of tickets to the festival on Saturday 12th March. To enter, simply answer the following question and email your answer along with your name to [email protected]
