Handmade Festival is right around the corner and is offering a delicious taste of some of the best indie, rock and alternative bands who grace this planet. Prepare yourselves for a brilliant weekend of music and discovery (and possibly leg ache), and if you need some help deciding who to see, we've got your back. Here's our Top 10 picks of bands playing the weekend!
Pure Noise Records is very much known for its heavily pop-punk influenced roster, with everyone from The Story So Far and Four Year Strong, to State Champs and Seaway leading the pack. One of it’s latest additions however, is offering something a little different to the sunshine punk jams that often fill its releases. New Jersey punks Can’t Swim are here to make some noise, and there’s not a pizza slice in sight.
There's no denying that 2015 was a great year for music and we waved it off with a smile when the New Year chimes hit, but now we're looking to the next twelve months and picking what is going to be our soundtrack. From everything to punk and hardcore, to the dulcet tones of acoustic artists, we've rounded up some of the best acts who we think are going to have something to shout about this year!
