#SFSTOUR16 You Me At Six are the final act to join the Stand For Something Tour 2016

The Surrey quintet will be taking on London’s Dingwalls to complete the line-up of this year’s tour.

Just last month, we revealed that Formation, Paigey Cakey and VANT were the first three acts set to get involved in the newest edition of the Stand For Something Tour. There was, however, one final artist yet to be announced, and – as promised – it’s a rather special one.

Fresh from completing work on their fifth album ‘Night People’, the mighty You Me At Six are the final band to be added to this year’s line-up. And not only will the chart-toppers be closing this year’s tour in the capital, they’ll be doing it in the tiny confines of Camden’s Dingwalls.

“The essence of it is very punk rock,” the band’s frontman Josh Franceschi mused, when speaking to us about their upcoming stint in the tiny venue. “Dingwalls has been renowned for being one of those venues where – along with the Underworld and a handful of others in London – shows there are pretty insane. It’s a venue where, if you’re a good live band and your fans are up for it, it becomes one of those shows that everyone wants to be at. This show really is for the fans; it’s gonna be a really good show and we’re all looking forward to it.”

Tickets for You Me At Six’s show at Dingwalls go on sale on Wednesday 12th October at 11am.

Tickets for the rest of this year’s Stand For Something Tour are on sale now – head to drmartens.com/standforsomethingtour now to get your hands on them.

“I’d like to be remembered for being part of something that celebrated individuality, while encouraging people to accept and understand people for the way they are and who they are. I stand for celebrating the inner and outer beauty of all individuals.”
