More names have today been added to the lineup for Bushstock 2017. The annual festival will return once more to various venues around Shepherd’s Bush, London, on Saturday 10th June.
Having supported Bushstock alumni Michael Kiwanuka, rising singer-songwriter Isaac Gracie will make his Bushstock debut at the festival this year and in fine contrast, Aussie indie-rockers Methyl Ethel will bring their lively dream-pop to West London, treating Bushstock crowds to tracks from their critically acclaimed sophomore album ‘Everything Is Forgotten’ which is out now on 4AD.
John Joseph Brill, Noctürn, Otzeki, Cortes, Outlya, Bruno Major, and Jordan Mackampa also officially join the festival lineup from today.
Today’s new additions will play alongside the already announced: Spring King, Seafret, Benjamin Francis Leftwich, Colouring, BANFI, Rhys Lewis, The Wandering Hearts, Tender Central, Aine Cahil, Basia Bulat, FOURS, Gordi, Jade Bird, Krusoe, Liv Dawson, Palace Winter, Ten Tonnes, and this year’s first announced headliners, The Staves.
Established in 2010, Bushstock is now in its 7th year and has gained a reputation for being “a Shangri-La of new music” (The Line of Best Fit), as well as a nomination for Best Independent Festival at the 2016 Aim Awards.
Curated by Communion Presents, the festival offers an opportunity to see established names alongside some of the most exciting up-and-coming talent, at a variety of unique West London venues. The lineup for 2017 is already shaping up to top last year’s sold out event which saw memorable performances from the likes of Shura, The Big Moon, Bear’s Den, Shells, Seramic, Rationale, Dan Croll, and Charlie Cunningham to name just a few.
Additional acts will continue to be announced in the coming weeks, as will full details of all the venues involved with the festival this year.
