The Northampton Twinfest weekender has announced the full line-up of acts for 2019, and where they will all be playing around ShoeTown.
The Twinfest organisation celebrates the friendship between the twin towns of Northampton, Marburg in Germany, and Poitiers in France, through music. The annual concert celebration is now 21 years young, and happens in 2019 from July 25 to July 28th.
This year the opening Thursday night at The Lab focuses on the Twintown artists from Poitiers and Marburg, with Oclaire (D), The Aries (FR), Cressy Jaw (D), Bazouka Groove Club (D), and Full Fiction (F).
Friday night is a double venue event. At The Garibaldi Hotel will be The Joe B. Humbled Band, The Keepers, Deaf Trap, and Bazouka Groove Club. Meanwhile at The Lamplighter will be Vincent Vega Band, Krankhead, The Barratts, Cressy Jaw, Full Fiction, The Aries, and Oclaire.
Saturday is the first of two all day events, at The Pomfret Arms. There you can witness Laughing Man Marsh, Andy Hawkins, Oclaire, Jack vs Hotdog, The Aries, Fossilheads, Jono and The Uke Dealers, Kings Gambit, The Mental Straights, Tom Rose And The Heathen Orchestra, Full Fiction, Bazouka Groove Club, King Purple, and Cressy Jaw.
Then on Sunday on the Garden Stage at The Black Prince it’s the climax of the festival. This involves Dan Plews, Duncan Bisatt, The Aries, Oclaire, Death Alley Drivers, Cressy Jaw, Baby Lung, Full Fiction, The Jackal Nine, Bazouka Groove Club, and Phantom Isle.
