Ritual Union 2019

The first announcement for the third installment of Oxford’s Ritual Union is here. And it’s a good’un.

We all know that it’s a rookie mistake to jump to conclusions on a line-up based on the headliner, but with Ritual Union 2019 we can’t help but have our hopes skyrocket. Topping the bill are ever-charming Teleman. With three fantastic albums to their name, the four-piece are a formidable force of affable, melodious indie records.

Luckily, our premature judgement continues to hold strength as we cast our eyes further down the line-up. Newcastle noise giants Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs will be blowing the minds and eardrums of the Oxford crowd off the back of mighty 2018 album King Of Cowards. Idles’ bezzie mates and fellow Bristol post-punks Heavy Lungs will also be bringing their raw fervour to the festival.

The Murder Capital are an absolute must-see. Having just announced debut album When I Have Fears for this coming August, the five-some are set to continue their upward trajectory. Don’t miss their emotive, riff-laden splendour while you still have the chance.

Hunky-dory cheeky chappies Trudy and the Romance are also a real treat from the Ritual Union organisers. A boogie to their bopping love songs is bound to be something special.

All this from a first announcement? Oh Ritual Union, you do spoil us.

STALKER RESOURCES:

NO ONE CARES WHAT YOU THINK, BUT LEAVE A COMMENT ANYWAY

Apart from a disappointing lack of female performers, Community Festival is looking indie-licious according to Raw Meat's resident photographer and grown up(ish), Chris Patmore.

Slamdunk festival makes its return in one hot minute, and as expected there are some amazings acts on offer. Dust off that BFMV t-shirt and dive right in.

Here’s the low down on the highs of Beat Connection... Apologies if that sentence was too much of a roller coaster for you.
