Pete Fij / Terry Bickers play the DLWP for the first time plus support from ZOONI & Winter Gardens.

Special social distancing seating arrangements have been prepared for this event.

Described as like a late night jamming session with Johnny Cash, Velvet Underground and The Everly Brothers trying not to wake the neighbours, Pete Fij (Adorable / Polak) and Terry Bickers (House of Love / Levitation) have combined to make sweet miserable music that over 2 albums ‘Broken Heart Surgery’ (2014) & ‘We Are Millionaires‘ (2017) have brought widespread critical acclaim, gaining many ‘Album of The Year’ nominations.

“Minor key, acoustic introspection (Richard Hawley, Lloyd Cole-ish) done so beautifully it’s as if they’re singing to one another in the dustlight of a pub back room; strumming, crooning, nursing collective memories.” MOJO

Suitable for all ages. Under 14s must be accompanied by an adult.

Introducing Zooni – an art-pop band from Brighton with a powerful yet fragile mix of poetic lyrics and transcendent textures. Peter Martin, George Godwin, Ben Clark and Matt Glasbey wash hypnotic beats with delicate piano and angular guitars.

The band have gained a reputation for their atmospheric live show, creating an intricate and enlightened approach to the alternative rock format. They emerge with a striking blend of Nick Drake, Grizzly Bear and Portishead.

“Beautifully hazy, sun-lit melodies and imaginative sonics. Intriguing stuff. Definitely ones to watch.”
Tom Doyle, Q Contributing Editor.

Winter Gardens

Taking influence from 80’s post-punk, Factory, Rough Trade, 4AD, Creation era bands, Winter Gardens have developed their own ‘dream punk’ sound, all the ethereal haze of shoegaze and dream pop with the energy of punk, their current set will take you through a cascade of shimmering tones, hazy melodic vocals and raw energy.

Winter Gardens have managed to secure support slots for Modern English, Petal, The Wave Pictures, Mammoth Penguins, Say Sue Me, Magic Wands, Charles Howl and opened last year’s Rockaway headlined by Gary Numan and Echo & The Bunnymen.
