Get ready to rock as Bristol’s much-acclaimed multi-venue festival, Misery Loves Company, gears up for its spectacular second run on September 28th. Following a standout debut in 2023, the festival is poised to ignite the South West’s music scene once again, with indie rock darlings The Hunna set to headline. Hosted in the dynamic spaces of SWX and The Station, this year’s lineup promises an even richer experience, blending intense musical energy with a vital message of inclusivity and mental health awareness.

Lineup Lowdown

Alongside The Hunna, Misery Loves Company has unveiled a slew of thrilling acts including metalcore mavens Employed To Serve, the electrifying Blackgold, hardcore duo Death Goals, the fierce Every Hell, rock rebels Gen and the Degenerates, the edgy Knives, alt-rockers North Atlas, and the spellbinding Saint Agnes. And that’s just the beginning—more names will be announced, ensuring a diverse and vibrant roster.

More Than Music

What sets Misery Loves Company apart is its heart. With a commitment to diversity, the festival boasts that over half of the acts feature female and/or non-binary members. This initiative not only shines a spotlight on underrepresented artists but also champions gender equality in the music industry.

A Voice for Mental Health

The festival continues its partnership with Heads Above The Waves, a nonprofit dedicated to combating depression and self-harm among youth. This collaboration underscores the festival’s commitment to wellbeing, providing both artists and attendees with support and resources to navigate mental health challenges. “We’re so excited to team up with the Misery Loves Company gang again this year,” a representative from Heads Above The Waves shared. “We’re all on the same page in that regard, and we’re looking forward to bringing an event together that’s going to help everyone from artists to the audience find healthy ways to keep their heads above the waves.”
