One festival that has gone under the radar, but has one of the best lineups of all, is 110 Above. The Leicestershire event will take place during August, tucked in between alternative hotspot Truck Festival and the renown Leeds/Reading Festival.
110 Above will run over the course of three nights, with all but one headliner revealed. Taking to the stage as headliners on Friday are alternative shoegazers Black Honey, and underground indie stars Little Comets. Both have been backed by national newspapers, and are beginning to receive commercial success, with Little Comets breaking into the top 40 in 2015. Saturday’s headliner will be Sundara Karma; with infectious choruses and a feelgood fun vibe, the band is receiving national radio attention and have already been announced as headliners for traveling festival Dot to Dot. Closing the festival are Clean Cut Kid, with one headliner still to be announced.
Despite the imminent announcement, the lineup is already crammed with outstanding alternative acts with enough impressive songs to be headlining in their own right. Other confirmed performers include Blaenavon, Inheaven, Will Joseph Cook, The Night Cafe, and Marsicans. If you want to go to a festival this year pre-empting the bands who will be making the top stages at future festivals, 110 Above is the one to make sure you spare time for this summer. Tickets for whole weekend camping cost just £45 for 12-15 year-olds, and £65 for adults, and this is very reasonable to pay for a lineup as innovative and fresh as this.
