Underage Festival, the world’s first and only strictly 13–17s festival, is returning to London for a sixth year this August Bank Holiday and is pleased to confirm more exciting names to the bill.

Heading to the new location of Shoreditch Park will be one of 2012’s most exciting break through electronic acts, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs whose recent LP ‘Trouble’ has received widespread critical acclaim, and Brooklyn based boy/girl group Friends, whose debut album ‘Manifest!’ was recently given Rough Trade East’s Album Of The Month accolade.

Cementing its reputation for introducing the best in credible emerging talent and quality new music to teenagers, Underage is also proud to announce hotly tipped female duo Deap Vally, whose heavy bass guitar and drum sound has seen them likened to fellow new additions and post-punk Londoners Savages, and London indie-pop group Citizens!, whose debut single ‘True Romance’ was released through tastemaker label Kitsuné late last year.

Also confirmed are garage rock hedonists Palma Violets, who have recently been described by NME as ‘direct, clever/simple, totally fresh’n’new-sounding fired-up rock’n’roll of the type we’ve been waiting for’, singer-songwriter Eugene McGuiness, Brighton based quintet Dear Prudence and upcoming UK hip-hop acts Cashtastic and Scru Fizzer .

They join previously announced names for Underage Festival include soulful songwriter Maverick Sabre, hotly tipped duo plus Disclosure, Jessie Ware, Lianne La Havas, Summer Camp, Dry The River, Outfit, Rustie, Spector, Theme Park, Tribes and more.

Underage will also be hosting a warm up show with confirmed act and Nottingham five-piece Dog Is Dead at the Camden Bar Fly on July 24th 2012. Rapidly making a name for themselves on the circuit for their thrillingly energetic live shows, the show is strictly 13 – 18 and gives a taste of what’s to come in August.
