TheZineUK are highly excited to welcome The DSM IV to our stage. In human history’s biggest year. The debut LPs are extra special and a band inciting hysteria (supporting Sleaford Mods and The Libertines and at their own sold out Lexington show) deserve eye-on x ear-on ATTENTION! Their LP is preceded by the aircraft hanger sized ‘Killing Your Time’ – their third release, it’s majesterially magnificent. Look forward to an intimately personal and exclusive Balcony Festival appearance.

In their own words; “We’re psyched to be able to play some tracks 4 u, THE DSM IV début album will be released later this year. We can’t wait to see you soon at a live, live show! In the meantime, thnx so much to TheZineUK for supporting bands & fellow music hedz by making this possible! Be wise, stay strong”

As our documentary’s story unfolds, this latest episode is a mixture of faves and new friends weaving into the tapestry. You will know our collaborators from TheZineUK tale, and from previous Balcony Festivals. Also some of this episode’s stars (like Berries and Nadhia Sheikh) all golden threads. Absolutely EVERY set at these shows is an ear opener! The first three events have already made a mark on the year, as well as raising funds to help others.

Personally, I bloody LOVE team Balcony. As a collective of music sites and promoters we are all completely different in style and taste. At a time when Hate Island’s Hostile Environment is dividing and infighting during tragedy, the Fertile Environment is taking seed with social inclusion and, frankly, some of the BEST talents around. Tell your friends and seeya in chat land on the day!
