TOGETHERFEST

‘TOGETHERFEST’ CURATED BY WALTER SCHREIFELS COMING TO LONDON 25th FEBRUARY, 2017

YOUTH OF TODAY, AMERICAN NIGHTMARE, TRASH TALK, WOLF DOWN + DEBUT UK SHOW FROM VANISHING LIFE

togetherfestAmerican hardcore visionary, Walter Schreifels has announced he will curate another TogetherFest at London’s Electric Ballroom in Camden on 25th February with a full night of live hardcore headlined by seminal band, Youth of Today who originally formed in 1985.

Other guest bands invited to play include American Nightmare, Trash Talk and Wolf Down, plus Walter’s newest band, Vanishing Life, whose line-up includes members of Rise Against, …And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead and Bad Religion. Vanishing Life will play their debut UK show at TogetherFest bringing those in the scene together for a very special and inspiring night out.

“A few years ago I had the thought that I’d like to see a hardcore/punk festival with more variety and a connecting thread to the early inspiration of the movement,” explains Schreifels. “It seems to me that the scene has become sectioned off lately and sadly, more about posture and violence, so TogetherFest was conceived to push the ball in the opposite direction. My inspiration for this series of shows across Europe are Minor Threat, Negative Approach, CRASS, Siouxsie & the Banshees, Maximum Rock ‘n Roll, and the D.I.Y. power that pushed it all forward. Last year Gorilla Biscuits headlined, this year it’s Y.O.T. but with my friends at Creative Talent in Germany we’ve created a very diverse festival. I’m very excited and proud to have Vanishing Life on board as well; these shows are gonna be a blast!”

The show is for over 14’s and tickets are available via See Tickets. Pre-order Vanishing Life’s album, Surveillance released in the UK on December 4th via Dine Alone Records on iTunes and your local record store.
