The now legendary 1-2-3-4 Festival was one of the most important events of the year for the regular London gig goer, fusing the freshest in upcoming bands with some of the biggest contemporary artists of the time. Promoter Sean McLusky started the festival back in 2007 with one plan, to bring together the true originators with the new breed of emerging bands, new artists playing alongside the musicians that inspired them, finding the international artists that still resonate with today’s scene while laying the foundations of the future with the bands of today.
1-2-3-4 are also known to organise unique one-off sets, collaborations, reformations and special appearances, so expect the 2016 festival to be full of surprises.
