Unpop's first birthday and popfest spectaculaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar!!
Mixtapes, badges, cake and more for the first 100 people! After our autumnal dance-a-thon, Unpop is back and ready for action as part of the inaugural Edinburgh Popfest. Taking its cue from similar celebrations of indie pop worldwide, it'll be running from the 22nd to the 24th of October at venues around Auld Reekie. Edinburgh popfest boasts some of the best exponents of the genre, like Bearsuit, Darren Hayman of Hefner fame, Suburban Kids With Biblical Names and Edinburgh's own Ballboy. Unpop will be part of the Friday night event will be creating our unique indiepop dance party after sets from Ballboy and Withered Hand.
This will also be Unpop's 1st Birthday so no expense will be spared to ensure that this is a spectacular evening.
Only £4.00 and free if you have a popfest ticket.
In case you hadn't heard, Unpop plays the best of classic indie pop, from C86 luminaries like The Wedding Present and The Pooh Sticks, through some of the greats of '90s music like Belle and Sebastian and Hefner, and onto modern jangley bands like The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart and Strawberry Fair.
As usual, we'll be providing a cavalcade of additional benefits to awesome dancing tunes: badges with nifty animals on them, our 5th Unpop mixtape, cakes and assorted sweets... so really, you can't help but love it!
