2Q festival which brings together a number of Derby’s leading venues for a one day festival of live music has just announced the next group of bands to be confirmed for the event.

The second wave of acts confirmed includes established acts D.I.D, Lucy Spraggan, April Towers and Recreations (formally known as Get Cape, Wear Cape, Fly), all of whom have played major venues across the country. These acts join the likes of Reverend and the Makers, Little Comets, We are the Ocean, James Walsh of Starsailor and Hacktivist on the line up, with more announcements and many more bands to follow.

Phil Burgess of The Hairy Dog shares ‘‘Early Bird tickets for the event sold out only days after its launch and initial reaction to the event has been great, with social media response building and tickets selling steadily since its initial announcement’’.

In addition to established bands the event has also announced a host of fantastic up and coming bands, including Viola Beach, Hidden Charms, Vukovi, Max Raptor, The St Pierre Snake Invasion, Trash, Vetches and Juneau all of whom are rapidly gaining major followings. There are still some significant spots to announce and the event is shaping up to be a brilliant day for the City.

2Q festival will see six centrally located venues including The Guildhall Theatre, The Old Bell Hotel, The Venue, The Hairy Dog, Bar One and Vines host an eclectic mix of big name headliners and emerging talent and aims to showcase Derby as a respected and valued music destination.

Tickets will be priced at just £20 with the objective being to create an affordable event. The aim is to make certain that the line ups created for each venue will reflect great value for money, ultimately ensuring that anyone attending will enjoy the event regardless of the venue they visit.
