Test Pressing festival is back – they’ve got a new home, and a great line-up for 2019

See you in Hackney Wick in April 2019

The first ever Test Pressing festival took place this year, bringing the likes of Metz, Jacuzzi Boys and Moaning to north east London for the night.

It’s happening again in 2019, on Saturday 27 April. This time though, the multi-venue festival will be taking place in a number of new riverside spaces at the main yard Hackney Wick.

The line-up is already looking sick. Ripley Johnson and Sanae Yamada’s Moon Duo will top the bill. They’ll be joined by The King Khan & BBQ Show, Lust For Youth and Michael Wollenhaupt’s techno project Ancient Methods.

Add to that, there’s Berlin duo Schwefelgelb, The Underground Youth, Turkish disco bastion Baris K and World Music crate diggers Khidja. Also on the bill: Silvia Kastel, Hiro Kone, C.A.R, Violet, Phuong Dan and Mike Krol. Last but not least, Black Country, New Road, Woom, Faux Real and Vintage Crop will all be there, too.

Early bird tickets for 2019’s festival go on sale this Friday (7 December). See you there.
