EJECTORSEAT Arts Festival is back this summer for a successful third year running, bringing a free, eclectic mix of music, art, theatre, poetry, family activity and food to Southampton’s Palmerston Park on Saturday, August 25.

Bands confirmed so far to play include those from all over the south include the city’s Crooked Beat, The Spiraltones, Living Tall in Dallas and Gang Colours.

The film tent will include local bands such as Winchester’s The Limes and Auspices from Southampton playing music to the backdrop of computer games, abstract visuals and specially commissioned films.

Working in partnership with The Point, Eastleigh, the theatre area will this year spill out into the open air with the help of Spinney Hollow’s Waggon Band and will be headlined by Winchester’s Shady Jane as well as performances from the likes of street theatre company Public Attraction, comedian Emma Nias, and interactive workshops from Annie Sanger-Davies.

To keep you occupied between these wonderful acts, there will be an arts market manned by many of the different Southampton creatives involved in the festival.
