We here at 247 Magazine spend a lot of our time going on about festivals, we thought it was about time we got involved in our own; so we’ve teamed up with the wonderful folk at the Bristol-based Dreamboat Records and art contingent Inkygoodness to bring you a week-long festival of indie music at one of Bristol’s best loved venues, Start The Bus, next month. What’s more, we’re giving away five pairs of tickets to the Dreamboat Presents gig of your choice.
Artists include This Is The Kit (see music page for review), Colorama and SJ Esau among others. We caught up with Ben, from Dreamboat Records, to tell us about the label’s journey from obscurity to a global player with some very famous names under its belt (including Robert Pattinson from Twighlight, John Parish and BBC 6 Music’s Adam&Joe).
Ben said: “We have always done a Christmas party, but only one night and fairly low key – We have until now just focused on releasing the music and that has taken enough of our time. However, now we’re wanting to get out and about into our local community and be apart of the live music scene that has given us so much over the years, so doing something bigger made sense. I think it certainly could become a regular thing and we already have plans in place. A dream line up? – I know John in the office would like the following the following: Magnolia Electric Company followed by Van Morrison followed by Queen. I think that’s unlikely for several reasons.
Dreamboat Presents takes place at Start The Bus in Bristol from December 10-17.
