So Young Festival 2021 at The Old Blue Last.

In the depths of Lockdown and during a time where music venues had their doors very much slammed shut, we decided to take a punt on bringing back So Young Festival. It’d been a while, but we couldn’t wait to host another three nights of our favourite bands in a venue much too small for no entry fee. Previous years have seen the likes of Fontaines D.C., Sorry, Sports Team, Dream Wife and The Lemon Twigs perform at the festival, and we were thrilled to host Shame, Do Nothing, Drug Store Romeos and more this time around.

Photographer, April Arabella was at hand all week to capture the fun and help you relive So Young Festival 2021. Day one saw us announce Do Nothing as our headliners. They joined Folly Group, L’objectif and Regressive Left.

On day 2 we announced Drug Store Romeos who joined The Goa Express, Modern Woman and The Umlauts for a sweaty one. Sports Team popped down to DJ too.

To finish off the festival fun, we had a big one in our back pocket. Day 3 welcomed Shame as our secret headliners. They joined Vlure, Lime Garden and The Early Mornings.
