It’s just over a week now until this year’s Bury Fringe Festival All-Dayer, which takes place on Saturday 6th May at The Hunter Club in Bury St Edmunds. The All-Dayer started as a two-stage affair back in 2012 and was intended to showcase for the incredible wealth of homegrown DIY contemporary musical talent we have in this area; six years later it’s grown to four stages, and this year features 37 local artists and DJs, spanning a wide range of genres from all over Suffolk, Norfolk, Cambridgeshire and Essex. Tickets are only £6 in advance from www.wegottickets.com, or £8 on the door. (Even at full price, that works out at 22p per act!)
Headlining our main stage this year we’re extremely excited to welcome back Manningtree’s incredible SUPERGLU, who in the last year alone have headlined stages at Reading, Leeds and Latitude Festivals, were voted GigSlutz.co.uk‘s ‘Best Live Band’ of 2016 and appeared at SXSW Festival in America at the invitation of Radio One’s Huw Stephens and BBC 6music’s Steve Lamacq. Our other stages will be headlined by BurySOUND 2016 winners SUBURBAN MINDS, Cambridge-based dreamy indie-pop quartet DEEP CITY and acoustic country-folk hero ANDREA KING, with a ginormous supporting line-up (see below!) plus DJ sets until 1am from the Hoo Ha Record Club. We will also be running an open mic stage throughout the day, so literally anyone can get up onstage and join in.
We’re hugely proud of this line-up and hugely proud of this region’s wonderful music scene. If you’d like to come along and join the fun, please let me know and I’ll sort you out with guestlist and photo passes! I’ve attached a couple of hi-res photos and there are links to some of the bands’ music below, but if you’d like to speak to any of the performers, or if there’s anything else you need, please just let me know.
