Le Beat Bespoke 4- Easter 2008

Fri/Sat/Sun 21/22/23 March 2008

Now in its fourth glorious year, the wildest weekender in the World returns to London this Easter Bank Holiday with its best bill yet. Yes, coinciding with the release of his new mix album, 'Le Beat Bespoke 3' (Circle Records), our host Rob Bailey and the NUT's team are throwing another 3-day global bash, tailor-made for all lovers of the '60s underground and far beyond.

This time they've really outdone themselves, managing to snare the first-ever European appearance by first-wave 1960s garage legends The Sonics. The wildest, dirtiest, rawest band to emerge from mid-�60s America, The Sonics reformed in New York last year, playing together for the first time in 40 years and now topping an international bill that includes Austria's The Staggers and The Jaybirds, UK bands the Good Time Charlies and rockin' blues act The Excellos, The Phantom Keys and Los Chicos from Spain,  and Sweden's The Branded. And some very exciting live bands will be added to the bill over the next few weeks....

It's a party planned by people who like good music for people who like good music - so you can expect to hear the very best in everything from Garage to Rockabilly, Folk to Funk, Psych to Soul, Freakbeat to Britpop, Ska to Club Jazz and all points in between!

Plus! 10 more live acts - as well as the most beautiful go-go girls, the trippiest eye-candy visuals, the freakiest cult cinema. Not forgetting the worlds' best DJs spinning records from dusk until daybreak in 3 rooms with an all night-bar! There's also a huge retro market selling choice vintage furniture, clothes, vinyl and pop artefacts. A cross-town scooter run on Saturday afternoon. Art exhibitions. And much more.
