1234 Festival: The Ravonettes & Black Strobe on bill

The Raveonettes

Story by Jack Foley

DANISH duo The Ravonettes (pictured) and electro-clash pioneers Black Strobe are among the second wave of acts added to the line-up for The 1234 Festival on July 9, 2011.

They will be joined by Rainbow Arabia, Two Wounded Birds, Sound of Rum and many more.

Taking place in the heart of Shoreditch, THE1234 Festival is the definitive independent London music festival, energetically showcasing up and coming acts alongside more established cult talent, engaging with the local creative community, and embodying the innovators and agenda-setters who have remained loyal to the festival since its beginnings in 2007.

Founded by Sean McLusky, this year’s event continues in the tradition of catching bands on the tipping point and putting them on stage, with an emphasis on raw creative talent and fresh energy, as opposed to the usual suspects doing the summer rounds.

THE1234 festival is also excited to announce an exclusive performance from New York no wave icon and post-punk pioneer Lydia Lunch, with James Johnston and Ian White.

She is one of the most influential and controversial artists of the last three decades, and is a highly anticipated addition to THE1234 festival lineup. She is joined by The King Blues and their unique, politicised sound, and Damo Suzuki, the lead singer of seminal 70s Kraut Rock band, CAN.

Early bird tickets have sold out, but advance tickets are still on sale priced at £22.50.
