Preview: Bushstock Festival 2017 The summer is finally upon us. So how do you spend your Saturday? On a tiny patch of grass on London Fields drinking cheap cider with chain-smokers? This year, spend it in Shepherd’s Bush.

On Saturday 10th June, Communion’s heralded Bushstock Festival is making a return for its seventh year to pioneer all good things in new music, craft beer and cracking company (see full line up and stage times below). The London-born record label has grown from strength to strength in recent years, and now boasts an illustrious list of signed artists including Bear’s Den and Michael Kiwanuka. So who do you fancy catching on stage before they hit the big time?

Sprawled across many of Shepherd Bush’s best independent venues, you can expect Bushstock to lavish you with the likes of Isaac Gracie - whose other-worldly vocals will melt in the acoustics of St. Stephen’s Church. You might wish to take a pew as the incredible Benjamin Francis Leftwich and The Staves join him there to see you into the twilight. Meanwhile up-and-coming indie sensation Avante Black and beautifully smooth Jordan Mackampa will enlighten your afternoon.

Heading into the night, already established and renowned Nick Mulvey will entice you at the intimate Courtyard Theatre to headline the festival with the support of over 40 other artists. And if you haven’t had quite enough of all that by midnight, Radio X’s Dan O’Connell will keep you going with his Northern passion until the wee hours.

There’s still time to get final-tier tickets to join Communion and over 1,500 other fans to celebrate the record label’s tireless efforts to promote quintessentially London music.
