SPOTLIGHT – 110 Above Festive

110 above festival

Festival tickets make excellent Christmas presents and one local festival has made the first of their 2022 line-up announcements with a cracking load to start!

110 Above Festive is one of the UK festival scenes best hidden gems. Held annually at Gopsall Farm in Twycross, organisers have built a reputation for providing a place to discover your new favourite band as they showcase breakthrough talent alongside more established artists.

Leading the first announcement is Everything Everything. The Manchester outfit are known for their falsetto vocals blended with synths, guitars and discordant pop hooks, and they’ll be headlining Saturday night of the festival. Joining them for special afternoon sets will be Liverpool’s alternative rock sextet, Red Rum Club, and indie-rock favourites, The Sherlocks.

Elsewhere on the line-up you’ll fine alt-rock multi-instrumentalist, Baby Queen, as well as Nottingham’s indie-pop favourite, Saint Raymond.

Alfie Templeman will bring his mis of melody and lovelorn lyrics to the farm festival site, with alternative indie-folk two piece, Kawala, also on the bill.

Favourites including Spector, The Academic, Vistas, are also on the initial line-up announcement.

The festival site is at Gopsall Farm, a small farm near to Twycross Zoo. As well as 3 stages (The Commune Stage, Old Town Hall Stage and Gopsall Stage), festival goers can also look forward to pop-up performances in unique spaces, comedy, arts & crafts and more.
