NEW acts will be crossing The Solent for the Ventnor International Festival.
London indie pop band Childhood will be performing their first headline slot at the festival on August 11, and rock ’n’ roll act Dead Pretties have also been added to the bill.
The first wave of Island acts have also been announced, including Ventnor’s Champs, indie electronic five-piece Nakamarra — who will also be playing the main stage at IW Festival — Fox Rawding’s Goo Lagoon and computer music duo Sleep Well.
They will be joining Bad Sounds, Cosmo Pyke, Girl Ray, Happyness, Moses Boyd and The Parrots in a variety of venues across Ventnor.
The town-based festival will host intimate gigs in churches, rooftops and warehouses.
Ventnor Exchange director Jack Whitewood said: “Forget the mud and often clashing sound systems, this is a chance to catch intimate gigs in amazing spaces with some of the most exciting new bands around today.
“We’ve been working really hard on a line-up that brings acts from all over the UK and abroad who want to join us in building on the Island’s unique musical heritage. VIF is a pretty ambitious move to keep the Island in the spotlight as a unique festival destination.”
The festival coincides with Ventnor Fringe, which takes place from August 8 to 13
