Philippa Stanton: conscious creativity
Philippa is a professional artist and photographer with synaesthesia, whose work has attracted over 400k followers on Instagram.

Philippa will open up a simple sensory exploration, prompting the visual and visceral experiences we can find right in front of us and which sit alongside memory and abstract thinking.

Neat Neat Neat Presents
N0V3L (Members of Crack Cloud / Women)
Novel is an engine of entertainment and social criticism weaponizing rhythm and melody against the unsound powers that be. Rigid new-wave, angular funk, polyrhythmic disco and intellectual punk together approximate a radical new sound that forms the principal means of ideological circulation. Drawing influence from such mindful predecessors as Devo and Public Enemy, Novel offers an empowering, politically-charged stance in fierce opposition to the modern cultural landscape, reflecting the corrupted nature of humanity back upon itself.
A sense of foreboding and comic paranoia pervades the debut EP: corporate power looms large, technological isolation seems omnipresent, and bureaucracy mines the psyche of detached participants. This constructed reality presents a hard-earned escape through critical thinking and direct action, acting as a call to mindfulness and moral resistance. Translated through the power of electric music.

“The drunken ramblings of a man on a comedown from his own adolescence.”
“Brighton based Tunnel Visions are a 6-piece psych/krautrock/garage band influenced by the likes of Yes, The Feelies, Pixies and Ty Segall. Having taken crowds by storm in Brighton, Plymouth and Bristol, the band now seek to solidify their place in the legendary Brighton scene as word of their infamous live at grows.”
“Post-punk band based in Brighton. High energy, (late) teenage angst n good vibes.”
