    The Staves to play London's Bushstock Festival


    Bushstock will once again return to West London for one day of live music at various venues around Shepherd’s Bush, London, on Saturday 10th June 2017.

    The festival offers an opportunity to see established names alongside some of the most exciting up-and-coming talent. Established in 2010, Bushstock is now in its 7th year and has gained a reputation for be-ing “a Shangri-La of new music” (The Line of Best Fit), as well as a nomination for Best Independ-ent Festival at the 2016 Aim Awards.

    Curated by Communion Presents, the lineup for 2017 promises to be bigger and even better than last year’s sold out event, which saw memorable performances from the likes of Shura, The Big Moon, Bear’s Den, Shells, Seramic, Rationale, Dan Croll, and Charlie Cunningham to name just a few.

    The Staves are today revealed as the first headliner for Bushstock 2017. This will be an anticipated per-formance from the sisters who’s last London show was their sold out night at the Roundhouse in 2015.

    Joining The Staves on the lineup this year will be Áine Cahil, Basia Bulat, FOURS, Gordi, Jade Bird, Krusoe, Liv Dawson, Palace Winter, and Ten Tonnes. With many, many more to be an-nounced.

    Super Early Bird and Early Bird tickets for Bushstock 2017 are already sold out. Tier 1 tickets, priced at £30.00, are on sale now here.

    Details on all the unique venues involved with the festival this year will also be announced soon.

    For more information, head to and follow the festival on Twitter (@BushstockFest), Facebook (@BushstockFestival), and Instagram (@Bushstock) for all the very latest news and develop-ments.

    Sleeping In A Car EP OUT NOW

    “These songs reflect the transient nature of travelling. Fleeting moments, like a slide show—reflections in car windows, street lights passing in rhythm, stolen phone calls, late nights. Feelings of displacement and a disconnect— living in some sort of alternate state of reality. But underneath it all is the feeling of adventure and making your own rules and how dizzying and freeing that can be.”

    The 'Sleeping In A Car' EP is Out Now.
