AUDIOSCOPE15 – lineup update

With less than TWO WEEKS to go until Audioscope15, we have some bad news -sadly, Guapo have decided to pull out of this year’s festival at this late stage.  We’re really sorry for any disappointment this causes for those of you who – just like us – were looking forward to seeing them.

However, we won’t let this dampen the spirits and we are looking forward to celebrating our 15th birthday with all the incredible artists below. We hope to see you there – if you haven’t bought your ticket yet, do it now – all the money we raise goes to Shelter!

Also, did you see what the music press has to say about Audioscope? Check out The Wire, The Quietus, The 405, local music magazine Nighshift and a special 15th anniversary playlist we’ve done for Q Magazine.

Audioscope15 lineup

AUDIOSCOPE14 – what a day!

We’re absolutely delighted to announce that this year we’ve raised an amazing £2,100 for Shelter, which takes the total raised to over £28,600 since we started in 2001!

In our fourteen years of history, we really think this was one of the very best shows, with so many performances to treasure. We just could not do it without you – so a heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone who came to the festival, bought an album or made a donation. Thanks also to everyone who helped us out and to all the bands who supported us this year, donating their time and art for a worthy cause!

Check our new Audioscope14 video and our photogallery on Facebook, and stay tuned for more news in the new year!

Earthling Society added to Audioscope14 lineup

If the glorious lineup for this year’s festival wasn’t enough, we’ve added the fantastic Earthling Society – one of the most ambitious and exploratory bands out there reaching for the limits of guitar noise, tracing a line from the krautrock of Ash Ra Tempel to the head-nodding hypnotism of Wooden Shjips. They’ve played with Julian Cope, Damo Suzuki, White Hills and Hawkwind and take elements of each of those acts, weaving in elements of raga and jazz to create something entirely their own. Their extraordinary version of Alice Coltrane’s classic ‘Journey in Satchindananda’ achieves lift-off to another planet entirely.

So the full lineup for Audioscope14 is:

  • Public Service Broadcasting
  • Silver Apples
  • Matt Elliott (Third Eye Foundation)
  • Wrangler (Cabaret Voltaire/Benge/Tunng)
  • Earthling Society
  • The Doomed Bird Of Providence
  • You Are Wolf
  • Circle Traps
  • The Neon Violets
  • Kid Kin

We strongly recommend getting your ticket sooner rather than later as the show is proving very popular (of course!). Tickets are available from We Got Tickets.

We’ve also put together a playlist for Q Magazine if you want to listen to some of the bands and get excited!
