Festival Republic announces new concert series Gunnersville

Festival Republic has announced Gunnersville, a new tented concert series taking place in London’s Gunnersbury park later this year, featuring Doves, the Specials and You Me at Six.

The three-day concert series will take place from Friday 6 September to Sunday 7 September. With Gunnersville, Festival Republic aims to “blur the line between festivals and concerts”.

Craft beers, local ales, summer wines and street food offerings will also be available at the site in Gunnersbury park.

Doves headline the opening Friday night, having recently made their comeback after a ten-year hiatus.

British ska band the Specials will play the following evening alongside British rockers Ocean Colour Scene, reggae act General Roots and punk and psychedelic outfit the Blinders.

“ It’s gonna be a hell of a night and the line-up is amazing”

You Me at Six close the weekend’s events on the Sunday, with their biggest headline London show to date, playing an exclusive set compiled of each of their singles in chronological order.

Jimmy Eat World, Sundara Karma, Deaf Havana and the Maine will play the final night alongside You Me At Six.

“We wanted to celebrate a pretty mad 18 months for us as a band so when Gunnersville approached us to headline one of the days we knew straight away what we wanted to do,” says You Me At Six’s Josh Franceschi. “It’s gonna be a hell of a night and the line-up is amazing. We can’t wait!”

Tickets start at £35 plus booking fee and go on sale on Friday 24 May on the Gunnersville website.
