Following their highly successful showcase at Brighton’s The Great Escape Festival back in May, and the news announced yesterday that they will be hosting their own stage at Latitude Festival, Transgressive Records are proud to announce their 10th anniversary concert to be held in one of the UK’s most prestigious and exclusive venues, London’s Barbican Centre on Tuesday, 30th September at 7.30pm.
This highly anticipated event will feature three acts from the ever expanding and impressive Transgressive’s roster and the artists include Johnny Flynn & The Sussex Wit, Mystery Jets and Marika Hackman, there are also more special guests and DJs that are still to be announced later on in the summer. The compere for the event is BBC 1’s Huw Stephens.
Transgressive have achieved so much since starting out and have released so many great records over the last 10 years and yet they are still expanding. The night is set to be a massive celebration of Tim Dellow and Toby L, who 10 years ago set out to make a change in music and in doing so, created Transgressive records at the shocking age of 19. The event really does promise to be a a huge celebration of all they’ve achieved and the line up is such a perfect demonstration of the quality in their releases and all their success.
Transgressive have signed and worked with an amazing range of artists including Foals, Flume, At The Drive-In, Two Door Cinema Club, Graham Coxon, Regina Spektor, The Shins, The Antlers, Neon Indian, Africa Express, Noisettes, Iron & Wine, and Johnny Flynn. So I think it is the least we can do by attending this celebration, because if you are anything like me, then you would agree that anyone whose aim is to have an impact for the greater good in music should be praised and celebrated.
Transgressive have gone above and beyond in the music industry, and this 10th anniversary is set to be a crazy one, (and lets be honest the line up is enough on its own to persuade you to attend). Tickets for this event are £17.50, £20 and £25 on general sale from Friday 6th June at 10am and can be purchased here.
