Over the past few years now, DIY HQ has packed our bags, jumped on a plane and headed Stateside to celebrate some of our favourite UK bands making their first big trip outside of Blighty. And we’re rather bloody excited to confirm we’re doing it all again in 2020.
From 11th - 14th March, we’ll be heading back to New York’s Lower East Side for this year’s New Collossus! The showcase event will be taking over some of Lower East Side Manhattan’s best venues and we’ll be giving a hand on the Saturday night, as well as being official media partners to the festival as a whole.
Last year, we invited the incredible Whenyoung, Body Type and Penelope Isles to join us on our stage, and this year, we’re planning something even bigger and better.
Hull’s finest LIFE, Heavenly’s The Orielles, Boston solo star Honey Cutt, Canadian indie rockers Kiwi Jr and NYC’s very own Public Practice will all be joining us down at Berlin Under A on Saturday 14th March!
Saturday 14th March @ Berlin, NY
7.45pm Kiwi Jr
8.30pm The Orielles
9.15pm Public Practice
