PopFest 2009

Thursday, February 26th sees the start of the first LONDON POPFEST, a gathering of indiepop fans, bands, clubs and labels. Over the weekend more than 20 international bands will be playing in 4 venues, London’s finest indie clubs will be spinning the tunes, stalls will be selling the best of up and coming (and already up and come) POP music, and there’ll be a whole lot more besides

THE BANDS

… with more to be announced.

THE VENUES

The POPFEST is happening over four days at different venues around London:

THE POPFEST TRADITION

The first TWEEFEST took place in New York in 1995, headlined by the MAGNETIC FIELDS, this metamorphosised into POPFEST two years later with January shows in both New York and Los Angeles. These were organised around an online community, rather than any local or national scene, and so gathered together an international crowd, who knew each other well, but more often than not had never met. The last 12 years have seen POPFESTS spring up all around the US each one an intimate event that people travel miles and miles to attend, and be a part of something

So here we are with our first little London POPFEST: four days of running around this brilliant city celebrating some amazing bands, meeting some old friends for the first time, swapping records, tapes and fanzines, drinking, dancing and, well, you know… doing what people do at festivals. Roll on February! We can’t wait to meet you all.
