The Strange Death of Liberal England and more confirmed for NWfA Festival

Nice Weather for Airstrikes Records present a 4-day, Free Entry Music Festival, Bank Holiday May 27-30th at The Druid’s Arms, Ditchling Road, Brighton, showcasing and celebrating the Post-Rock music scene. Part of the Brighton Fringe Festival, this event is now in its 3rd year, and fully established as one of the UK’s top Post-Rock events.Acts confirmed for the festival so far are:
The Strange Death of Liberal England, Last Days of Lorca, The Continuous Battle of Order, Juffage and Speak Galactic. NWfA are giving away a ‘Last Days of Lorca’ track exclusively to Facebook fans of NWfA, and they will be giving away more free stuff in the run up to the festival.

The Festival will showcase The UK’s best up and coming Post-Rock, Math and Shoe-gaze bands Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening from 8pm til Midnight – with DJs taking over until 3am. Bank Holiday Monday will see a more stripped down, relaxed affair with Electronic, Ambient and Acoustic artists taking the stage from 3pm til Midnight. The line up 2011 will be announced over the next 4 weeks via the website, Facebook fanpage and Twitter.

The NWfA Festival exists for three reasons:

• To give innovative and forward thinking bands and musicians a stage and an audience that they would normally not get the chance to play to.

• To showcase a culturally diverse form of art in a city known for its cultural diversity, and to give local residents of Brighton and the surrounding areas music that they would otherwise not be able to engage with.

• To increase knowledge of the often “underground” musical movement that is Post-Rock.

In the last two years, the festival has seen a host of superb artists grace the stage, combining established names like A Genuine Freakshow, Shapes, Brontide, Up C Down C, Talons and Codes in the Clouds, with up and coming Brighton acts such as Last Days of Lorca, Jacob’s Stories, The Deal Was for the Diamond, Everyone to the Anderson and Monsters Build Mean Robots. Not just a Record Label, NWfA put on regular Post Rock nights along the South Coast, and have been lucky enough to bring bands such as And So I Watch You From Afar, Vessels, Cats&Cats&Cats, Maybe She Will, &U&I, Her Name is Calla, These Monsters, Bossk, and Stuart Braithwaite of Mogwai among others to Brighton.
