XFM's Winter Wonderland: Editors + Courteeners + The Temper Trap + Lucy Rose + Theme Park
Xfm's Winter Wonderland with Rocksmith returns this December.
Every year, Xfm puts on two huge live shows in London and Manchester, featuring some of the very best artists in the world of music today, plus a unique selection of exciting new acts for you to see before they become MASSIVE!
This event takes place at O2 Academy Brixton, which has achieved Silver Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
This Birmingham-based quartet have enjoyed a rapid rise to success since they met at college in Staffordshire in 2003. An intense sound influenced by iconic bands such as Joy Division, Echo and the Bunnymen and Interpol, their success story began when their 2005 debut album 'The Back Room' reached no. 2 in the UK, selling over half a million copies. Meanwhile 2007's 'An End Has A Start' and 2009's 'In This Light And On This Evening' both reached the no.1 position, and 2013's 'The Weight Of Your Love' also hit the top ten. No mean feat for a band still considered to be "alternative".
Editors tour dates
Manchester's Courteeners both look and sound as though they've come straight out of another time and place, and yet, somehow, are bang up to date. Think Babyshambles meets The Smiths and you'll be somewhere close to their gritty, electrifying sound. 'NME strongly advises that you do put your life in the hands of this rock 'n' roll band'.
Courteeners tour dates
Hailing from Australia, but now based in the UK, the band released their debut album, Conditions, in 2009. Featuring the singles Science of Fear, Fader, Love Lost and Sweet Disposition – the latter of which spent more than six months in the UK singles chart – the album was one of the breakthrough successes of the year and has now been certified Gold two-times over in the UK, selling over 800,000 copies worldwide. Now a five-piece, the band's line-up consists of Dougy Mandagi, Jonathon Aherne, Toby Dundas, Lorenzo Sillitto and Joseph Greer.
The Temper Trap tour dates
Acoustic based blissful pop with a hint of Kirsty Macoll.
"One of the country's most promising new voices - utterly beautiful" - Sunday Times.
"Gentle, folky, confidential tone, undershot by a coolness of intelligence and self possession." - The Daily Telegraph.
Lucy Rose tour dates
A series of single releases and extensive touring throughout 2012 gained the London trio a wealth of fans and supporters. The band released their eponymous debut album via Transgressive Records in February 2012. Think Talking Heads and Bombay Bicycle Club with a healthy helping of sun-kissed calypso!
