The Summercamp Weekend sees a host of pivotal acts rolled out across Liverpool's always impressive Camp and Furnace venue, located in the Baltic Triangle part of the City, on the 15th and 16th of August.
Camp and Furnace is a cultural hangout set in the heart of Liverpool, it boasts three rooms cut out with the intentions to provide a top quality musical experience, Blade Factory makes up one of the rooms, a unique 300 capacity music and arts space carved into an industrial backdrop perfect for hosting the music it attracts.
Deep Shit - Friday 15th August
The Deep Shit imprint turned party (read more on it here) compromised by Jack Savidge of the Friendly Fires and Edwin Congreave of Foals set up camp at the Blade Factory for the first of the Summercamp events.
The formidable partnership of the two is the result of two like minded heads striving to achieve a similar eclectic output. Deep Shit's first release was a limited vinyl by Ed Congreave (above) which completely sold out, its uptempo beat and intelligent synth is perfectly geared for spaces of the blade factories nature.
Gruff Rhys - Friday 15th August
Next up is jack of all trades Gruff Rhys. The hallowed producer, composer, film maker, author and most notably lead singer of The Super Furry Animals brings his solo indie rock to the Camp and Furnace.
The Welshman's on the cusp of bringing out his fourth album American Interior (above), centred on the travels of an 18th century explorer, featuring anything from psych-pop to subtle piano this album has it all, firmly touching on Camp and Furnace's creative philosophies. Grab your tickets here
Jimi Goodwin - Saturday 16th August
The band member turned solo theme continues when Doves singer Jimi Goodwin takes to the stage on the Saturday at Camp and Furnace. Elbow's Guy Garvey described his music as "Brilliant" and he's not wrong either, his delightful acoustic output, which can be heard above, paired up with Jimi's gruff yet sumptuous vocal and the upbeat tempo of the track makes for delectable hearing, sure to go down a treat at the Summercamp weekend.

Dauwd - Saturday 16th August
The atmospheric sonority of Dauwd's experimental house is a felicitous curtain closer to the Summercamp Weekend. The producer's latest Kindlinn EP can be considered a psychedelic art form, a wash with galactic synth sounds and visceral bass lines that perfectly embrace the sounds of the summer.
