Organisers of the popular Swindon music event have announced that Swindon Shuffle will return this September…..
The Swindon Shuffle has been a fixture in the diaries of local music lovers since
2007, celebrating all that is good about the Swindon original music scene.
The 2023 event (the 16th edition technically as 2020’s festival was online) runs from Wednesday 13 September with an opening music quiz event at The Beehive.
Festivities continue until Sunday 17 September, with over 60 acts featured across five main venues in Old Town (The Beehive, The Castle, The Hop, The Tuppenny and The Victoria) alongside fringe events at venues like Baristocats and The Eternal Optimist and more. The event will be raising funds for Prospect Hospice.
The cream of the local crop will be on display with every musical genre imaginable. This year’s line up will once again include the Friday evening specially curated by The Swindon Folk Club, which takes place at The Hop.
Headline acts include the reggae goodness of Subject A at The Hop on the Thursday evening with Canute’s Plastic Army topping the bill just down the road at The Tuppenny.
On the Friday evening, the headliners include All Ears Avow at The Vic and Splat
The Rat at The Castle.
Saturday will see headline sets from Richard Wileman and Amy Fry (The Tuppenny), Modern Evils (The Vic), Concrete Prairie (The Beehive), and Stay Lunar (The Castle).
The final day on the Sunday will see headliners Fly Yeti Fly (Tuppenny) and Matt Owens and The Delusional Vanity Project (The Beehive).
Organiser Ed Dyer said: “We are really excited to have such an incredible line-up of local talent playing this years event. We have loads more to announce and plans for this year’s festival to be the biggest and best yet. It is a privilege each year to be able to put this event on and to raise much needed funds for Prospect Hospice.”
All sessions are free of charge with full details available HERE.
