DIY disco trio Patawawa have been extremely busy, releasing their debut EP last year, the band immediately broke through with the million streaming lead single ‘Patagonia’.
Hotly tipped by the likes of NME, Line of Best Fit, DIY & Clash and many more, the band have topped the Hype Machine charts several times during the last few months.
Clocking up several million streams across all digital platforms, they’ve earned support from the likes of Tom Robinson and Lauren Laverne on BBC 6 Music & plays on Radio 1 with Huw Stephens.
The band have earned comparisons to a bewildering array of other artists from Chic to Madonna, Two Door Cinema Club to Foals, Beth, Rory and Sam.
The kind of band that can look at the reflections of car lights in the puddles of a provincial English town high street & instead see the bright lights of Downtown Manhattan, Patawawa's music provides both a commentary on and escape from a world that more often than not seems to be spinning out of control.
Join them as they head out on their first major UK tour!
Tonight we come together, to look each other in the eye and dance. We have the time and we’re making a space to call our own.
In this explosive outdoor gathering, Bristol based performance company Still House joins forces with the Tottenham-based Steppaz Performing Arts Academy and north London’s music production powerhouse Empire Sounds to create a high-energy night of dance and live music.
Dance party, gig and social, the show is led by an ensemble of young dancers who move across hip hop, contemporary folk and Afrobeats, celebrating community, youth and belonging.
This is a show for everyone, if you’re 6, 16 or 60 this is an experience not to be missed!
