With the announcement of the new acoustic stage, the line-up for this years Off The Cuff Festival is finally complete. The three-day event, takes place over the weekend of July 27-29 2012 at The Flapper in Birmingham, and features some of the country’s top underground talent, alongside the best in local music. Friday bears the fruit of the louder side of music, with Birmingham heavyweights Bovine being joined by fellow Brummie rockers Romans and Leeds based punks These Monsters. The night is rounded off by larger than life alt-rockers Shapes. Hot new prospect Three Trapped Tigers headline a Saturday crammed with a more alternative, quirky, math-rock appeal. Tall Ships and Leicester’s MabyeSheWill join them, as well Birmingham’s very own Free School and Funeral Suits. Sunday brings more well known names to the fore-front, with headliners, the incredible Future of The Left being ably supported by the whirlwind of rock that is TurboWolf. &U&I, Bats and Them Wolves add some considerable clout to a truly climatic day of music, but the ones to really watch out for though is HorrowShow, a maelstrom of punk-rock aggression set to explode early on in the day. The Acoustic stage runs from the Saturday to the Sunday and features such act as headliners Jim Lockey & the Solemn Sun and Boat to Row, as well as Charlotte Carpenter, Dakota Beats, Mezzotonic and many more. Day & weekend tickets are on sale now via theticketsellers.co.uk, with Friday tickets priced at £5, Saturday OR Sunday day tickets priced at £15, Saturday AND Sunday tickets priced at £26 and full weekend tickets (Friday-Sunday) priced at £29.
