Expanding to the Friday night as well as the usual Saturday, the forward-thinking indie tastemakers have announced Childcare, Saltwater Sun, Patawawa, Dextric and Solv will play the first evening across the Main Stage and Green Room Stage. Sporting everything from lo-fi anthemic indie to funk-fuelled electro music, CLOSEUP have guaranteed an extremely eclectic range of rising talent, with the promise of more additions in coming weeks. 

On the Saturday, SPINN, Banfi, Pizza Girl, Wyldest, Arcade Hearts, Shanghai Blues and Violet will all take to the Main Stage. Though the headliner is yet to be announced, the line up already captures the sun-kissed pop mood, built up by piercing synths and silky reverb. 

Take to the Green Room on the second day and you will find, moody dance-masters, Little Cub, supported by Lewis Bootle, Gaspar Narby, Femme (DJ set), Moon Panda, and Me & The Moon.  Showcasing some of the  UK’s most promising future talent, CLOSEUP are known for pioneering the career’s of so many artists, working through the ranks to headline venues all over the country for the promoters. The festival promises no difference - standout moments, sing-a-longs, dancing and a whole load of Jagermeister, their official partners.    

The festival takes place on Friday 17th May and Saturday 18th May at Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen. Tickets can be found at Ticketweb, but be quick!
