Swarm Front

Tusk Festival 2017 Sage Gateshead

A Tyneside collective of evolving membership and featuring some of the busiest faces in the region’s creative underbelly. Or as they put it themselves, “Swarm Front is a quasi-amorphous collective of sonic and cultural dissidents and anti-creatives. Weaponising the banality of liberal nstitutions, they use text and sound to construct crude folk-magick hexes against the bastions of reasonable culture.”

Noise for the joy of it, improvisation for the sheer liberation. It just happens to be on a stage.
