On Thurs 29 Sept. from 14:15-15:45 at PowerHausWasserman Music present Glasgow’s Dead Pony, whose sonic aggression and battle-ready choruses has seen them captivate listeners on BBC Radio 1 as well as crowds at Glastonbury and on tours with Twin Atlantic, Lauran Hibberd and more. And songwriter & songstress Debbie brings her reflective but effortlessly relatable lyricism, and rich, resounding voice.



Alt-pop newcomer flowerovlove is making waves in the music and fashion industries, drawing attention to sustainability and the importance of preserving the earth around us, and Piri & Tommy have seen explosive success on TikTok with their single Soft Spot, reaching #1 on the UK chart with, and hitting the Radio 1 playlist as BBC Introducing’s Track of the Week.

Also on Thursday afternoon at PowerHaus (15:45-16:30), Earth Agency present East London’s Deijuvhs, who takes inspiration from Punk, Metal, Drill, Jungle and many more otherworldly genres and Toronto-based songwriter, vocalist, producer, and performer Haviah Mighty, whose breakout album, 13th Floor, made her the first hip-hop artist and the first Black woman to win Canada’s “Album of the Year”, the Polaris Music Prize.

From 23:00-02:00 on Thurs 29 Sept. at Camden Assembly, performances include FAT DOG, whose bio reads “Through the subliminal powers of the dog, especially that of the “fat” variety, one may even witness the regrowth of one’s hairline.”



Panic Shack crashed through the UK music scene with a tidal wave of ear-crunching noise, immediately building up a reputation for their raw, unapologetic live shows and off-kilter songs, and Blackpool-born ZAND, the self-proclaimed Ugly Popstar – who coined the term “ugly pop” to describe not just their malevolent sound, but an unflinching commitment to facing down demons of all forms.
