And so, for our second line-up post, we’re delighted to announce that the following acts will perform at Revolt #2 on Saturday 16th March… (incidentally, there is also a Facebook event page!)

Cat Bear Tree

“Deriving their name from a kick ass cat and a cowardly bear, Cat Bear Tree are a London-based trio whose indie, melodic, sometimes poppy, sometimes punky tunes nod to indie alt acts like Sleater-Kinney, Electrelane and Warpaint.

Cat Bear Tree

Roz Kaveney
“Poet, novelist, activist.”

Catherine Elms

With just one week to go, we’re excited to make our final major announcement of acts!

Prue Chamberlain will be opening the proceedings with a performance of some of her poetry. Prue performs poems about urban feminist experience, and her blog can be viewed here.

Catherine Elms creates the zine Here. In My Head. She will be running a zine stall and reading “fuck shyness” from Here. In My Head #7. You can visit her website here.

Local poet Bethany Norris will perform some of her pieces towards the end of the night, just before Atta Girl DJs take control of the dancefloor.

Don’t forget, you can save money by buying your tickets in advance!
