2Q Festival has been running for the past two years as an inner city event in Derby, and now for a new challenge and location, on October 28th the biggest and freshest alternative rock and indie acts will make their way to the traditional city of Lincoln. It promises to be a spectacular day, with a number of excellent and quirky venues hosting bands, such as Engine Shed, Home, and Red Five.
Seven acts, including two headliners, have been revealed in the first wave of several upcoming announcements. After months of build up, the performers can now be named as Circa Waves, Peace, Busty and the Bass, Marsicans, Jerry Williams, Trash and Sean Blakey. Circa Waves are a huge scoop for the festival; their vibrant, energetic live performances combined with snappy, catchy indie turned heavier alternative rock, has made them a huge name in British music. The other so far announced headliner, Peace, are a modern cult favourite within the indie scene, due to their fun, kooky appearance and style of music.
Early bird tickets are still on sale, for now – costing £22 including the booking fee, these will no doubt sell out quickly and can be bought here. Lincoln is home to two universities and students will make up a large proportion of the crowd, so to give a helping hand, those who have NUS cards can purchase tickets for cheaper via the University of Lincoln’s Student Union.
