Every year I look forward to Dot to Dot Festival, I always find it’s a great place to discover new artists, while also watching some of my favourite emerging bands. The metropolitan festival takes place over three days, one day in Manchester, one in Bristol and the last in Nottingham. Each day taking over a number of venues in the city and showcasing the same headliners but also a further line up of artists local to that area.
On Saturday Manchester Academy 2 saw a massive homegrown show take to its stage. The night, headlined by Glass Caves, was a huge step for the local group, who tightly packed the great venue with hundreds of excited followers. Not only that, but supporting the quartet was another two of Manchester’s finest upcoming artists Kashmere and Freeda, who were the perfect openers for the unforgettable night
I Wouldn’t usually write about a track after it has been released but for Kashmere I will make an exception.
Their newest track, Gravity, was released on Friday and I was quite surprised by the song. I have followed the band for quite a while and after hearing their early indie-fueled hits develop into 80’s influenced synth pop I wasn’t too sure what to expect from the new release
Later this month, Manchester Academy 2 will see a massive homecoming show for three of Manchester’s fastest growing artists- Glass Caves, Kashmere and Freeda.
Heading home to close their UK tour, Stockport-grown quartet, Kashmere, brought their synth pop anthems to Band on the Wall for a night of well-deserved dancing, from both fans and the group
