Offset Festival headliners revealed, hundreds rejoice

Offset have announced the first few acts for their indie/rock/dance/art festival, again taking place in the Hainault Forest Country Park, Essex.

The Horrors (recipients of a rather overenthusiastic album review from yours truly last week – sorry ’bout that), Future Of The Left, Rolo Tomassi and Architects are confirmed as playing, along with appearances from post-punk legends The Slits and A Certain Ratio.

It all takes place on the weekend of 5th-6th September, with ‘super early bird’ tickets on sale now at £35-£45 a go.

(Last year was pretty good, actually. There are definitely worse ways to get rid of £35.)
