*Sŵn Festival 2012 wristbands allow access to all Sŵn Festival 2012 shows, subject to capacity of individual venues. However, there are a few select headline shows that will require a Top-Up ticket as well as a Sŵn Festival wristband to gain entry.
What's a Top-Up ticket?
This year, a few select headline shows will require a top-up ticket, which will guarantee entry to that show, with a Sŵn Festival wristband. These will be reasonably priced and will reduce unnecessary queuing at headline shows.
This ticketing system has been put in place to try and keep the Sŵn Festival wristbands at a reasonable price, whilst also allowing Sŵn Festival wristband holders guaranteed access to headline shows for a small top-up fee.
Back in 2007, the brothers Jarman - Gary, Ryan and Ross - brought their acerbic, twin-vocal attack and infectious lo-fi melodies to our inaugural Swn Festival, where they soared to the top of that year's 'best bits' list.
Fast forward six years and the trio who nestle comfortably within the rich tapestry of Britain's indie scene are back with a heap more of meticulous pop-rock anthems and an army of memorable sing-a-long moments waiting in the wings.
Currently celebrating their fifth studio album, In The Belly Of The Brazen Bull - which became the band's second release to reach the Top 10 of the UK Album Chart - The Cribs have been dubbed as 'Britain's biggest cult band'; a term we can only presume is due to their forever-growing group of followers and against the grain sound offering well-crafted, noisy social commentaries.
FRANKIE & THE HEARTSTRINGS
Having supported Florence + The Machine, this five-piece are a heart-racing, foot-stomping traditionally brilliant British guitar band. Their songs are infectious and will entertain crowds when they support The Vaccines in November.
The Manchester outfit are in thrall to the kind of deliciously smart-alec, rough ‘n’ tumble two-minute slacker pop that only lifelong fans of Pavement, Sebadoh or The Vaselines could carry off so well. Favouring quick-hit, insistent pop hooks and scruffy lo-fi charm, they play it like UK contemporaries Male Bonding or Girls Names; creating sunshine bliss out of shiftless inertia and making it all sound hopelessly easy.
