Following a packed-out performance at Glastonbury on Mumford & Sons’ Gentlemen of the Road stage in 2014, Michael Kiwanuka returned to the studio to commence work on his new album. Those sessions are now nearing their conclusion, with full details to be announced imminently.
Michael takes a rare step out of the studio to make his second appearance at Bushstock, having first played the festival back in 2011. Expect to hear the first fruits from his second album played out alongside tracks from Michael’s critically acclaimed Mercury Prize nominated debut album, ‘Home Again’.
Curated by the team behind Communion Presents, Bushstock takes place across a number of venues in and around Shepherd’s Bush, showcasing established names alongside some of the most exciting up-and-coming new talent.
This year’s festival will include more stages than ever before. As well as Bushstock regulars - the stunning St Stephen’s Church, the unique Bush Hall, and Shepherd’s Bush local’s favourite, the Defector’s Weld - Bushstock 2015 will also see shows at the cosy Albertine’s Wine Bar, and two brand new stages located at University of the Arts London’s Lime Grove Campus - an intimate Common Room Stage as well as, for the first time ever for Bushstock, a large outdoor Quad Stage.
Super Early Bird and Early Bird tickets have sold out. Tier 1 tickets are on-sale now for £25 but are expected to sell out very soon. Once gone, Tier 2 will go on-sale at the full price (£30).
