Acting as a beacon for emerging music in East Anglia, Ipswich’s Brighten The Corners festival has today confirmed the stage splits for this year’s multi-venue weekender, as well as releasing day tickets for general sale.

Headlining proceedings on Friday are genre-straddling funk and disco collective Ibibio Sound Machine, while Saturday night will see South London post-punk favourites Shame top the bill.

Also among the names on the stacked Friday lineup are Art School Girlfriend, Nabihah Iqbal (DJ set), and Ugly (who recently gave us a track-by-track guide to their new EP). Crowds on Saturday, meanwhile, can catch The Mysterines (who have just announced their anticipated second album ‘Afraid of Tomorrows’); Lambrini Girls (who recently spoke to DIY about their anti-patriotic new single ‘God’s Country’); and eclectic art-rockers Folly Group.

Elsewhere, punters will also be treated to sets from the likes of Coach Party, Divorce, Tapir!, Prima Queen and many more, so there’s plenty to get your teeth into over the packed two days of music.

Brighten The Corners will take place on Friday 14th and Saturday 15th June, and weekend and day tickets are on sale now here. Check out the full lineup and day splits below.
