Featured Festival: Visions Fest

After a sell out crowd for the debut festival in 2013, this years follow up event had a lot to live up to.

1625548_234343996769110_6006603875230449515_nFrom warehouses, courtyards, fields and even a brewery, east London’s premier one day community festival, Visions returns to deliver another diverse line-up of acts to promote alternative and DIY music to the people of Hackney and Bethnal Green.

Put together by a group of young promoters, this years festival features the likes of Californian hard rock singer songwriter Andrew W.K, Minnesotan synth-rock band Poliça and Syracuse noise rockers Perfect Pussy, each bringing their own sounds and experiences to this young fest and helping to make this one of the most exciting one day events in the south.

Perfect Pussy

While the line-up should be enough to keep you occupied throughout the day, there will also be a record fair, comic book convention, tattoo art exhibition and Netil food truck market, all of which is included in the reasonable ticket price of just twenty-five pounds and held in the local area, meaning no matter which band you are on your way to see or have just come from, you have somewhere to waist some time before the next muss see act comes on,
