Gnod! Conan! Spectres! Damo Suzuki! Future Of The Left! Hey Colossus! Mugstar! WRONG Festival's full line-up is a glory to behold

WRONG Festival has announced its final round of line-up additions for its second outing on April 28.

One of the most exciting new fixtures on the North-Western festival calendar has already announced headliners Future Of The Left, Damo Suzuki, Mugstar, Hey Colossus and more. Today tQ can exclusively reveal the full lineup.

tQ favourites and undisputed monarchs of noise Gnod are among the new additions, as are the terrifyingly excellent Spectres and Merseyside doom-metal favourites Conan.

Two tQ featured up-and-comers SPQR and Kapil Seshasayee have been added to the bill, as have Liverpool fixtures like Elevant, Gravves, Ohmns and Salt The Snail vs Bleach Sweets.

The full list of new additions is as follows: Gnod, Conan, Spectres, Bilge Pump, Elevant, SPQR, Thank, Death And The Penguin, Table Scraps, Irk, Gravves, Kapil Seshasayee, Ohmns, Buried Sleeper, Black Pudding, Alpha Maid, Nasty Little Lonely, Tokyo Taboo, Sons, Lucy Leave, Bisch Nadar, Salt The Snail vs Bleach Sweets, Lonesaw, Psyblings, Swearwolves, Lewis O'Neill (DJ).

WRONG Festival organiser Michael Edward said of the additions: "I'm incredibly proud of this line up. I always try to make my way to as many sets as possible when I put on the festival, in between all the running around organising things, and this year I'm going to have my work cut out. Gnod made my favourite record of last year. Conan are legends, and are one of Liverpool's greatest bands. Spectres are an absolute hellscape.

“I've done my best to spoil everyone for choice from the top of the bill to the bottom, and with a breadth of genres from punk rock to psychedelia to doom metal to noise and even to dream pop. Some of these acts are genuine musical heroes of mine, so it's an honour to be able to put on an event like this. It's also nice to feature most of the Loner Noise roster once again. Really it's just a cross section of bands that I adore, and I hope everyone else will too."

Wrong Festival takes place across three venues in the Liverpool Docklands on April 28. Tickets start at just £20 and are available here.
