Gang Of Four

Ye Olde Yorkshire post-punk outfit Gang Of Four are headlining this year’s tube-trip-home-friendly Offset festival.

The band join the likes of astute minimalists Wire and robed lunatics Chrome Hoof at the festival, which will take place over August 30 and 31 in Hainault Forest, Essex.

Also on the line-up are Brighton’s The Maccabees, Andy Gill favourites The Young Knives, Metronomy, and Johnny Foreigner. The Experimental Circle club will headline a stage of stern sounds from rising acts including Ulterior, ddd, Ipso Facto and Prinzhorn Dance School.

In the past the festival has showcased bands such as Biffy Clyro, The Duke Spirit and Art Brut.

With 150 bands over seven stages tickets are priced around the £50 mark for full camping over the weekend and are available here.
