New music champions This Feeling have teamed up with menswear specialists scotts to help kickstart the return of live music with this weekend’s inaugural Rewired Festival.
Coming to The Garage in London on Saturday and then the Brudenell Social Club in Leeds on Sunday, the festival is headlined by the rising riotous rock ‘n’ rollers The K’s alongside a killer line-up that also features Big Image, Rats, Shambolics, The Clause, Andrew Cushin, Dead Pony, The Velvet Hands, Estevans, Hourglvss, Flowvers, The Crooks, Crawlers, The Feens, Headshrinkers, Latenight Honeymoon, Louis & The Shakes, Cavalcade and Framatics.
Remaining tickets for the festival are available here at the bargain price of just £12.
The Rewired Festival commences a frenetic schedule of live shows hosted by This Feeling and scotts as we emerge from the pandemic. From now until the end of the year, they’re set to put on another 200 This Feeling shows, primarily in grassroots venues, covering over 90 venues and 55 locations across the entire UK.
The schedule features the likes of Red Rum Club, The K’s, Bang Bang Romeo, The Crooks, Andrew Cushin, Saint Agnes and The Katuns. Details on all shows and regular updates can be found here.
This Feeling are experts when it comes to new music. Everyone knows it. Just ask Blossoms, Catfish and The Bottlemen, Gerry Cinnamon, The Struts, The Lathums and many more, all of whom have bagged first headline shows, first London gigs, first tours, first major festival slots or first radio plays via early support from This Feeling.
Since the start of the pandemic, scotts have invested over £100,000 into the new music scene, providing much needed income for artists grounded by lockdown. Working with This Feeling, scotts have booked countless artists for sessions filmed either at home or in local venues, organised a successful run of socially distanced Euro 2020 shows, and released the ‘Big in 2021’ double-vinyl compilation as well as a new take on The Farm’s classic ‘All Together Now’ to raise funds for the Music Venue Trust.
Mikey Jonns, founder of This Feeling, commented: “Thanks to scotts investment during the pandemic we’ve been able to massively support new emerging acts and show everyone what they are able to do while the venues were closed. We can’t thank them enough for the backing they’ve given both us & the bands. The pandemic has created a huge pent up desire for live music and we’re going to witness the rise of the great new guitar band scene again. Come and find your new favourite band at This Feeling!”
Paul Ramsdale, Marketing Manager for scotts, added: “Grassroots music has been at the heart of scotts for many years, from supporting grassroots artists to the local gig venues which are the heartbeat of the UK music scene.
The grassroots music scene has been one of the hardest hit sectors across the last few years and we felt it our duty to help support wherever we could to ensure all the lockdown creativity had an avenue to greatness post pandemic.
Music lovers should be excited for the months and years to come with bands and artists working hard alongside This Feeling through the dark times. Now things are opening up, so be prepared for an era of guitar music like never before and rest assured scotts and This Feeling will be front and centre. Be part of it!”
