DPP Festival 2018: No Hot Ashes, The Wholls, Oddity Road + more on Saturday 6th - Sunday 7th January 2018
NO HOT ASHES and THE WHOLLS headline DPP Festival 2018 this weekend, with CARNIVAL CLUB, ODDITY ROAD, REQS and many more also appearing.
Closing the Sunday of the festival, THE WHOLLS’ energetic and edgy live performances have gained them a reputation as electrifying. The band signed licensing deal with Sony last year, and released their self-titled debut album in May to rave reviews.
Summer 2017 saw the band support Kaiser Chiefs and take in major festivals, including Isle of Wight, Reading and TRSNMT. They embarked on a UK headline tour in September, and are currently preparing for a range of major support tours in discussions with their agent.
There is a reason everyone is talking about The Wholls – they are quite simply a hard-working bunch of mates with bags of charisma, boundless energy and their sights set firmly on the world’s stadiums. Their headline performance at DPP Festival 2018 will be unmissable.
Headlining Saturday are Stockport disco-funk four piece NO HOT ASHES. They go from strength to strength, with over 750,000 Spotify streams on their irresistible tracks, a deal with Modern Sky Records, and a 650 capacity gig at Club Academy Manchester that sold out two months in advance.
November alone saw the band feature on BBC One drama 'The A Word' and release 'Eight Till Late', the first track off their 'Skint Kids Disco' EP due early 2018. DPP Festival will be one of the very last chances to experience No Hot Ashes’ live set in an intimate venue.
Also high up the bill are CARNIVAL CLUB, fresh from supporting Liam Fray on his sold out UK tour; popular indie four piece ODDITY ROAD, who recently completed a huge autumn headline run of shows after playing to 4,000 people at Y Not? Festival; and Derby’s own REQS, who are currently recording their first EP after gigs with Dantevilles, The Extons and Mint.
Completing the line-up are Mancunian bands THE CLAREMONTS and THE COVASETTES, rising Wakefield quintet THE GALLERY, and local acts THE HONEYMOON SUITE, AYRES, HITFACED and NIAMH MELTON.
After the success of its first year, which featured Judas and Adelphi, DPP Festival 2018 will be even bigger and better. Saturday and weekend tickets are SOLD OUT - do not miss out on Sunday tickets!
