After four years away, London’s much-loved pastoral pop band Tunng (Full Time Hobby) make their return to Brighton!

Tunng invite you to join them on a journey through the night. A journey of dreams, somnambulant adventures, night terrors and magical moments. This specially curated evening will feature the very best of Tunng through the years and will introduce songs from their brand new album ‘Songs You Make At Night’. The band would love the audience to play a part in the creation of this experience…. find out more at

Tunng have also shared a new piece of music – “Flatland” which is classic Tunng. Inspired by Edwin Abbott’s 1884 book of the same name about a two dimensional world, it blends the group’s love of experimental electronics with acoustic instrumentation, with “the hookiest rolling finger pick of all time, inserted through a controversial three dimensional effects loop” says producer Mike Lindsay, with promises of more music on the horizon.

“nu-folk-rock at something close to optimum, in performances which sparkle with spontaneity. ” – The Independent

“they have quietly become a captivating live experience” – The Guardian ****

Support comes from:

Goatherder is the seventh album from underground London producer Kristian Craig Robinson, AKA Capitol K. This ace manipulator of audio and punk warlord of groove has crossed a tapestry of styles and approaches with his own secret compass since 1998. This latest work was developed and recorded in his native Malta, where he built a studio in a cave (a former goat stable). K gathered bamboo instruments collected around the world, including an ancient Quecha reeded pipe (his new-found lead instrument), and various resonating vessels and percussive objects including dry fennel storks collected from Punic troglodyte sites, and atonal flutes built from fresh cut farmland reed.

DJ: Nick McMaster from The Sweet Ordeal

The Sweet Ordeal DJ Set is Nick McMaster, from Brighton-based three piece alt-folk band The Sweet Ordeal. As a band The Sweet Ordeal play melodic and bittersweet songs about love, loss, longing and redemption. As a DJ Nick travels across the spectrum of folk and its edges to present a journey of half hidden narratives where a story unfolds. Failing that, expect to find quirks, past and future classics, uncovered gems, guesses and greats. As Nick says, “Quite simply, like the best folk music, it comes from the gut.”
