Over The Moon Festival

This weekend (14-16 September) is the Over The Moon Festival, which is the new name for the Out of the Ordinary Festival, which is probably the nearest weekend festival to Brighton these days. There are LOADS of Brighton based bands playing, so we can’t not mention them, even if we can’t make it along. Over the course of the weekend, Los Albertos are playing one of their last ever dates. They played their last Brighton date last Friday at the Blind Tiger, so this will be one of the very last chances to see them ever. Former Source cover stars Holy Vessels are also playing, as well as Buffo’s Wake, Carnival Collective, The Dirty Devine, Dr Bluegrass & the Illbilly 8, Elijah MC, Forestears, Gyratory Allstars, Jerkin the Rat, Ratbag, Roots Garden, The Black Fields, Time for T, Too Quirky for Me, Transformer, The Triple Chicken Combo and Wide Eyed Order. Other bands from outside of Brighton may also be on the bill.
