Drill:Festival is coming to Brighton on 4th-7th December across 14 different venues. Curated by Wire and One Inch Badge this hugely ambitious festival will see upwards of 100 bands, artists, films, talks and exhibitions across the four days. Influential British rock band Wire have chosen bands and artists they find inspiring with the aim of connecting both new and established acts.
Having put on Drill:Festivals in London and Seattle in 2013, the Brighton installment will be the biggest yet. Day (£17.50 – £22.50) or full weekend tickets (£70) are available here with more details on the Drill:Festival website.
