Second Five4Five Fest Announced, Holding Absence & Yonaka Are Headlining

Earlier this year in May, Five4Five fest brought together a group of bands for a livestream experience.

Now, the festival is back with a fantastic lineup.

Five4Five Festival is set to take place over December 18th and 19th 2020 and will be headlined by Holding Absence and Yonaka.

On the announcement, Yonaka have said:

“We are dead excited to be headlining this festival. It’s for a great cause for everyone to get involved in, saving the grassroots venues that we have all had a great time in. We all want to get sweaty and moshy again so do what you can to help and enjoy the show!”

And Holding Absence have said:

“After what has been the longest year for all of us musicians, Holding Absence are extremely excited to be blowing off the cobwebs and headlining Five4Five fest this December! We all individually tuned in and enjoyed the first one so are honoured to be a part of it this time around, especially as all the proceeds are going towards something as close to our hearts as the Music Venue Trust.”

In addition to the headliners, The Dangerous Summer, Normandie, Vukovi, Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly, Lizzy Farrall, Hacktivist, Delaire The Liar, Nova Twins, Holiday Oscar, Chapter and Verse, Snake Eyes, As Everything Unfolds, Weatherstate, The Rhythm Method, Tally Spear, Stay Free, Anavae, Paper Mill and Haggard Cat will all play.

All of the performances will be free to watch on the festival’s Facebook and YouTube pages but those watching will be encouraged to donate £5 to a link provided at the time. All profits will be donated to the Music Venues Trust’s #saveourvenues crisis fund.

The festival’s co-founder Tom Pullen had this to say:

The past, present and future of the UK music industry relies on grassroots, independent music venues. We at Five4Five can’t stand by and watch as our venues are left to weather the Covid-19 crisis on their own. We’re proud to partner up with the Music Venue Trust to help ensure they can reopen safely, so we can go back to the loud and sweaty spaces where it all begins. In the meantime, we’ve gathered some of the finest acts to enjoy from the comfort of your own sofa. We hope you enjoy and donate if you can.”
