A new independent music festival celebrating the thrills, spills and bellyaches of indie-pop ‘n rock, heads to The Public in West Bromwich over the weekend of April 7 and 8.

The NOW WE ARE WEEKENDER, which promises to be one of the best fast paced musical mash-ups debuting this year, will feature over 30 bands with headliners including Art Brut, Misty’s Big Adventure, Toy Horses and The Lovely Eggs.

Organised by London based Funny Looking Cat, the Easter weekend mini-festival will present everything from twee indie pop to rock ‘n’ roll mayhem across two stages and include some of the finest bands from across the West Midlands and the UK.

The two day event will also include a fascinating array of handcrafted merchandise stalls (Stall holders wanted: click here) and family friendly workshops for all ages to enjoy, and will also feature DJs from the UK indie club circuit spinning tracks in to the early hours, for festival goers determined to dust off their dancing shoes.

Weekend tickets are priced at just £15, with day tickets priced at £10. Under 5s are free. Tickets are on sale now from theticketsellers.co.uk or by calling the 24 hour hotline on 0844 870 0000.
