LYs to join Mark Ronson at Brownstock 2013

Brownstock 2013We’ve been booked to headline The Piano Bar at Brownstock 2013 in Chelmsford, Essex, on Saturday 31 August. Main stage headliners include The FratellisMark Ronson and DJ Yoda.

This fast-growing festival began small in 2006 but, in just seven years, has established itself as a national institution, and just this month was nominated for ‘Best Independent Festival’ in the UK by the Association Of Independent Festivals. Past performers have included Athelete, The Futureheads and Labrinth and Grand Master Flash.

The Piano Bar @ Brownstock 2013

The Piano Bar is an intimate sofas-and-cider stage based around the presence of a rather glorious Roland Digital Grand Piano. Last year saw performances from a wide variety of (admittedly mainly piano-led) acts, and in fact ex-painter-and-decorator-what-you-know-off-of-the-telly-like Matt Cardle even popped in for a last-minute secret set. In short, anything can happen at the Piano Bar – although it is best to assume it will in some way involve pianos.

We’ll be rounding off proceedings in there on the Saturday night of the festival, so expect all manner of ivory-led shenanigans (by which I mean we shall be tinkling the ivories… not, like, doing weird shit with elephants).

LYs onstage at 7pm. Visit the GIGS page for directions to the festival.
