Unplugged Saturday

2nd March 2019 - 1:00pm

to 2nd March 2019 - 6:00pm

One afternoon, 200 gigs, good food and drink, great vibes, it doesn’t get better than this.

Music is the lifeblood of Hastings and nowhere is this more in evidence. Bars and restaurants of Hastings Old Town host a packed afternoon of acoustic music sessions, as 40 emerging and established artists and bands across all genres play 15-minute sets at participating venues.

A couple of notches below the all-out pace of the Fat Tuesday Tour, this event still packs a punch in terms of musical diversity, with everything from acoustic rock to choral, blues to brass, and music from all over the world. Take a chance on something new, follow your favourite act from venue to venue or hole up with food and drink and wait for them to come to you (best to book at participating restaurants if you plan to eat).

Featured artist: WILL VARLEY - This UK singer-songwriter cut his teeth touring the country’s open-mic nights, often using fake ID to gain entry for many years. He’s opened for the likes of Frank Turner, Billy Bragg, Valerie June, Beans on Toast and The Proclaimers. And like
the Scottish duo, Will has even walked 500 miles whilst playing a show each night from Lands End to his hometown of Deal, in Kent.
His latest album, Spirit Of Minnie – his fifth studio release – is out now through Xtra Mile Recordings.
