Mutations is a new multi-venue inner city festival in brighton england, born out of last years acclaimed drill:brighton. With wire’s touring project moving onto the next urban sonic assault, co-curators one inch badge decided the time was right for a forward thinking, artist lead festival that would be static to brighton annually on the last weekend of november.
Mutations is a creative mass of genre hybrids and expression, delivering some of the most inspiring, creative and interesting music the world has to offer; highlights include aggressive noise pioneers lightning bolt, canadian noise rockers metz, experimental house producer john talabot, infamous texan singer-songwriter josh t pearson, legendary doom stalwarts om, the viciously experimental chelsea wolfe, and breakthrough electronica act tourist, all performing alongside a host of other national and international acts.
Spanning two days and nights on the 28th and 29th november with an incredibly intimate capacity of just 1,000, mutations is a real music lovers event. Alongside all of this incredible music you can also expect pop-up record fairs, poster art exhibitions, photography and more. Designed around the most exciting and pivotal venues in brighton, the structure of mutations is such that as the day progresses the stage numbers decrease while the venue capacities increase, reducing potential clashes and meaning constant music from doors open until festival close. Brighton is really a city of two halves, brighton & hove as it’s known, with that in mind the venues on saturday 28th november will be predominately in hove while the venues on sunday 29th november will be predominately in brighton. We really hope that you enjoy this inaugural edition of mutations and find your new favourite band on route to seeing some of your all-time favourites.
