Darlington indie record label Butterfly Effect has been around for five years now, releasing 19 vinyls and 23 7”, supporting a variety of local artists and in turn building a thriving music community. To showcase these artists and create a little more togetherness Butterfly Effect are putting on a festival on Saturday 21st May, which will see eleven bands performing over two stages at Pealies Barn.

The ethos of the festival is to support local musicians and to make it as affordable and enjoyable an experience as possible. Founder of Butterfly Effect Stephen Gill tells us more…

“We’re festival goers ourselves and want this to be the festival we would want to go too, so there’s not going to be expensive (warm) beer or chips for £10.”

He goes on to add, “We planned to do an indoors day of music after lock down but sadly the venue we had in mind closed down due to Covid but the wonderful Pealie’s Barn became available. So we are upgrading the event with two stages and over a dozen bands from north of England plus camping and stalls.”

Performing are is slacker-indie artist James Leonard Hewitson, melodic folk outfit Nel Unlit, alt-rappers Ceiling Demon, rock-revivalists Scruffy Bear, Americana artist Elaine Palmer, goth trio The Golden Age Of Nothing, lo-fi punk duo Mouses, soulful blues quartet The Dead Seat, singer of sad (but hopeful) songs One Sided Horse, guitar driven EDM band Analogue Blood, laid back music makers The Last Of The Fallen Angels and masked garage-rockers Wax Heart Sodality. There will also be stalls with art, jewellery and workshops.

Tickets are £30 ADV and available here.
