If there was one good thing about the Jabberwocky festival omnishambles last month, it was the aftermath. Loads of great bands played small ‘fall out’ gigs around London, and loads of London music fans had a great time. Such a great time, in fact, that some of them want to do it all again next year – without having to cancel anything first.
Fall Out 2015 is an ambitious plan to make something really cool happen in London next August. The more people buy tickets, the bigger and better the event will be: the idea is to keep things to scale to avoid Jabberwockying the whole thing up. At the moment, so the organisers say, they’ve sold enough tickets to put on an event in one venue – but they’re hoping for enough bookings to let them spread to a few more spaces in the same area, and put on a proper multi-venue festival.
That also means, obviously, that they don’t have a clue yet about who might actually play. But £18.50 (the current ticket price, which will apparently go up at some point) is a pretty great price for a music festival, so Fall Out might just be worth a punt.
