The UK's first alternative hip-hop/rock festival ALT+LDN announces more names for 2021
Already standing apart from the competition as a major disruptor in the U.K. festival calendar, ALT+LDN is primed to bring a festival moment like no other - bringing the biggest names in modern alternative culture together for the first time ever, all on Clapham Common this August.
Joining the unmissable party this summer are even more standout names blazing a trail in the explosive rap and rock crossover worlds, each with their own distinct voice. Australian alt sensations CHASE ATLANTIC, whose emphatic blend of genres has seen them grace magazine covers, storm venues across the globe and garner a vast devoted fan base over the past 4 years, will make their long awaited return to the U.K. at ALT+LDN this year - promising a must-see storm of energy when they hit the stage. The same applies to one of the most talked about new bands on the planet, WARGASM, whose fiery punk-rock sound has turned the duo into a must-see live force in a matter of months. Sure to turn ALT+LDN on its head, it’s a chance to catch your next favourite band in the flesh.
Speaking about ALT+LDN and returning to London this year, Chase Atlantic said:
"LONDON WE’RE COMING 4 YOU ️ WHO’S READY TO RAGE?!?!
THE UK LOVE HAS ALWAYS BEEN INSANE; SO U ALREADY KNOW YA BOYS ARE EXCITED AS FUKK TO SHOW THE SAME LOVE BACK. Y’ALL WILL BE SOME OF THE VERY FIRST TO HEAR SLAPS FROM ‘BEAUTY IN DEATH’ - LIVE IN THE FLESH! LESSGOOO"
Also joining a stacked bill marking a true coming together of thrilling and influential modern alternative culture is BVDLVD, bringing true grit and fire from his already undeniable record collection to the fore come August on Clapham Common. Weaving modern pop and genre-hopping swagger is Finn Askew, with tip-list inclusions and acclaim across the board pointing to a sizzling future for a voice that simply has to be heard live. With the individual stylings of Macca Wiles also joining the party, it cements ALT+LDN as a bubbling pot of exhilarating new sounds and voices that’ll be making a mark in the years to come.
Speaking about his appearance at ALT+LDN this year, BVDLVD said:
“I’m hella excited to be pulling up to ALT for my first festival! I’ve got a year and a half’s worth of rage just waiting to be let out on that stage…”
Newcomer Finn Askew said:
“To be playing the main stage with some of my favourite artists feels so mad. I literally bought tickets for this festival before I knew I was playing, guess it was meant to be. I’m so gassed!”
These new names add even more to an unrivalled party coming to the heart of London this August, as ALT+LDN provides a celebration of alternative youth rebellion unseen in the U.K. before. From headlining giants like Playboi Carti and Architects to a who’s who of artists tearing up the game right now in Machine Gun Kelly, Lil Yachty, Lil Skies, The Kid Laroi, Ski Mask The Slump God, Sleep Token, Bexey, Mario Judah, Princess Nokia, Smokepurpp, Bob Vylan and many more - ALT+LDN is rich with groundbreaking artists shaking at the foundations of 2021 and beyond.
A culture. A modern youth revolution. The coming together of influence, style and importance for a festival like no other - ALT+LDN brings it all together. Whether it’s in hip-hop, rock or the alternative - it’s all about the here and now.
