TICKETS FOR ASTRAL COAST 2013 AVAILABLE NOW!
The full lineup is finally here! Its set up to be a special day, award winning headliners, nationally recognised recording artists and the very best emerging talent which the Wirral music scene has to offer.
Headlining this year is Merseyside’s new soul sensation, ESCO WILLIAMS! Included in MTV’s Brand New TOP 20, winner of a MOBO Award and GIT Award nominee, this will be a one off Wirral Festival appearance. Since creeping into music at just 17, this self-described geek has been creating a lot of noise. Esco’s pulsating form and captivating presence is reminiscent of Aloe Blacc, Al Green, Musiq Soulchild and Cee-Lo Green, yet his energy and performance is that of a rock star with maximum swagger. Brought up on an early education of Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye, recent supports for RZA, Dead Prez and Sugababes have led to Esco being playlisted on 1Xtra, FLAVA TV and AKA – this will be truly one not to be missed.
We are delighted to announce BY THE SEA. The shining light of Merseyside Guitar Music at present, Wirral’s very own have been recieving plaudits and fans by the bucketload since the release of their recent fantastic, self titled, debut album. A dreamy combination of melody-rich tunefulness and instrumental haze, they create one of the most unique and listenable sounds around. Fans have come in the shape of BBC 6 Music, NME, Q and Uncut.
THE SUNDOWNERS join the bill right in the middle of what promises to be a huge summer. Brand new single ‘Dont Come Knockin’ picks up from the huge success of debut single ‘Hummingbird’ and showcases the bands canny knack for melody and retro infused production. This show will be on the back of a Glastonbury appearance, full scale national tour with local hero and ex Coral man Jay Skelly and the Intenders and a swell in national recognition for this most promising of groups. Catch the band while they are playing venues this size.
