WIRE to headline Offset Festival

Post punk pioneers WIRE have been announced as one of the headliners for Offset Festival.

The Young Knives, Chrome Hoof, Ipso Facto and Make Model have also been added to the event, which takes place on 30-31 August at Hainault Forest, in Redbridge near London.

Set in idyllic woodland, surrounded by lakes, wild deer and a rare-breed farm, Offset aims to join the dots between exciting new artists and their influences.

The two main stages will feature renowned new bands playing indie, rock and electro, topped off by hugely influential artists from the post-punk/rock scenes, headed up by WIRE.

Five smaller stages will host new and cutting-edge bands and DJs, one of which will be hosted by Last FM.

Limited earlybird tickets are on sale now priced from just £35 for the full weekend. Check  www.offsetfestival.co.uk for more details.
