Frank Turner’s award-winning festival, Lost Evenings is returning this year for its fourth instalment. Following the cancellation of last year’s event in Berlin, Germany, due to the pandemic, the festival instead returns to London’s iconic Roundhouse venue on 16-19 September 2021, where the first two Lost Evenings took place. The 4-day event (winner of the AIM Best Independent Festival Award in September 2017) will occupy the many rooms, bars and outside spaces in Camden, to create an exciting program of events, talks and live music. Tickets for Lost Evenings IV are on sale now with the Sunday night already sold out.
As previously announced Lost Evenings IV will see Frank Turner headline each night with very different shows: Thursday 16th September Frank will perform an Acoustic Duo Show with Matt Nasir; Friday 17th September sees Frank and The Sleeping Souls play songs from the First Three Albums + new songs; Saturday 18th September will celebrate the tenth anniversary of England Keep My Bones and then on Sunday 19th September a Greatest Hits Set will close the festivities. Supports for the main stage for each night have already been revealed. On the Thursday Frank is joined by friends and past touring buddies Grace Petrie and Emily Barker. Following on Friday, the amazing Jamie Lenman (full band) and PET NEEDS warm up the main stage. Saturday will see supports from the incredible Nova Twins and Lottery Winners. And on Sunday Xtra Mile Recordings label mates Skinny Lister and Guise will help close the festival in style.
Now, Frank is thrilled to unveil the live-up for the second stage, named as the Nick Alexander Stage, that will run concurrently across the weekend. Named after the merchandise manager and long-time friend of Frank’s, who was tragically killed in the Paris, Bataclan attack in 2015 – the stage will honour his memory by playing host to some of the best emerging acts – personally selected. Thursday will see Holy Moly & The Crackers headline with support from The Meffs and Jess Silk. Friday will host New Pagans, False Heads and Misery Gutz. Saturday’s billing is Dream Nails, Morning Crush and Wilwood Buoys whilst Sunday’s Xtra Mile Recordings night continues with Deux Furieuses, BERRIES and a headline show from label friend Samantics.
In addition to the evening performances at the Roundhouse, a selection of panels, masterclasses and workshops under the banner of ‘Last Minutes’ will also run across the 4 days featuring leading industry insiders, musicians, experts and music professionals offering inspiration, insight and advice to audiences. The full programme of events will be announced soon.
Speaking about Lost Evenings IV, Frank says: “After a thoroughly miserable year for live music – not least having to cancel the Berlin Lost Evenings event last year – I’m ecstatic to say we’re bringing the festival back to where it started, at the Roundhouse London in Camden Town. It’s going to be a family affair – old friends (Grace, Jamie, Skinny Lister) and new (Nova Twins, Lottery Winners, Pet Needs), and just a huge celebration of what we all missed lately – getting together for a singalong.”
