Save The Date- Portals Presents: Her Name Is Calla, UpCDownC and more- Saturday 13th May
Portals are fast building a reputation for high quality experimental rock mini-festivals. Off the back of successful gigs with headliners such as Talons, AKDK, Vasa and Hark, the 7th edition of Portals sees them return to the Brixton Windmill for another BBQ day-out. The 7th edition of Portals will be headlined by post-rock/folk heroes Her Name Is Calla.
HNIC have cemented their place as a huge part of the UK’s experimental-rock over the past decade or so. Their haunting melodies, inspired lyricism and intense stage presence has seen them garnering radio airplay from the likes of BBC Radio 1, 6 Music and XFM amongst others.
Once again with Portals, the day will be filled with alternative/experimental bands from across the UK including legendary Medway-based post-rock/post-metal trio UpCDownC, mesmerising one-man-math-rock band Theo, up-and-coming electronic/post-rockers I.This.Yes, noisy alt-rock Londoners Death & The Penguin and fiery math-rock duo Land Wars.
The event also features a free BBQ included in the ticket price.
