Upcoming Spring Gigs & Festivals

image: WeHeartIt

This is something I've always got excited about ever since being about 12/13 years old.. Gigs. 
Here are a few I have coming up I want to share with you :)

Architects w/ Every Time I Die & Counterparts | 13th March | Camden Roundhouse, London

I've seen Architects a few times before, but this is their biggest show I have been to yet. 
I loved 'Hollow Crown' and 'The Here And Now' but after that I can't say I've listened to anything! Oops? I've seen Every Time I Die before (supporting A Day To Remember last year) and I wouldn't say they're a band I would listen to very often, but they're weirdly fun to watch live. 

I have never seen Counterparts but I know my Boyfriend LOVES them. If anyone knows of any newer Architects stuff that's worth a listen then let me know in the comments!


Funeral For A Friend | 20th February | The Haunt, Brighton

I have never seen this band and I am ridiculously excited, as this band have got me through all the happy and incredibly sad times aka. Break Ups & Arguments etc in the last 7 years. As weird as it sounds, I literally can't wait!! Plus it falls on payday! What better way to celebrate?

Four Year Strong w/ Hit The Lights, Light You Up & Forever Came Calling | 28th March | Concorde 2, Brighton 


I am SO excited for this gig. Not only have I wanted to see FYS since 'Bada bing wid a pipe' came out but Hit The Lights are possibly my favourite band to watch live (and in my home town aswell..mega brownie points!) I am yet to listen to Light You Up or Forever Came calling but I've heard they are really good, so I will be listening to them sometime this week. 


Slam Dunk Festival 2015| South | Hertfordshire University | 24th May 

So it's only a day event but this is my all time favourite festival. I've been going for the last 4 years and not once has it let me down. Pop-Punk is my favourite genre of music and this holds such a variety of Alternative bands, from local to all over the world. I have met loads of different bands/artists just from walking around the campus & seen so many bands I would have dreamed about seeing live at the age of 14. It has definitely upped its game over the last 2 years or so. 

I actually appreciate it a lot more when I'm not stumbling around looking for a toilet, or crying because I'm too drunk. I have never been to the after party because I find I'm just too tired at the end of the day. I would rather slump into a cosy hotel bed until morning! I have heard it is a lot of fun (also a great way to meet/ party with band members) so if you can stay awake like a saint then I'd recommend it. 

If you're thinking about Slam Dunk, be sure not to miss out :) Its a sure winner! 



Any gigs or festivals you guys are thinking about this year?
Or if you are going to one of these shows, let me know!

  5. Decent! Always nice to find someone into this music. I went to Slipknot & Korn in January and The Used in February. I'm off to Amsterdam on my own in June to see Marilyn Manson play a little venue, and Korn in July. Then Leeds Fest for the day of Metallica, BMTH and Alexisonfire!
