Weblink for full programme www.newuntouchables.com
After the huge success of ‘Modstock 2’ in 2004 (also at The Rocket Complex) which drew visitors from all corners of the globe, there was much positive feedback and many calls for a potentially similar but hopefully more regular London-based event. This would, by its very nature, take on board the same quality and diverse demands of the Modernist and wider Sixties Scene. In addition it should be enhanced with more imaginative ingredients drawn from various similar areas and scenes to ensure a top quality ‘Weekend of Sin’, with vintage culture, music, fun and mucho partying over three days and nights in the music capital of the UK!
We have worked hard to bring you an amazing three-day programme of events, details
of which you will discover as you read on. Firstly, being a ‘live music’ led event, we have brought together some legendary names, mixed with some international ‘must see’ newer acts, some Scene mainstays, some all-out blisssssstering outfits, and also some young cutting edge bands that are setting alight the UK ‘live’ scene and music critics as we speak!
