1234 Festival Tickets
1-2-3-4 Festival Tickets
In 2016, festival organizers announced that 1-2-3-4 Festival tickets would be refunded after the event was abruptly cancelled. The line-up included bands like Bo Ningen, Teenage Mothers, Crows and Sex Cells.
Launched in 2007 by former Indie Rocker Sean McLusky of Subway Sect and JoBoxers fame, the 1-2-3-4 Festival began as a celebration of the UK's finest underground performers and helped launch artists like Florence and the Machine into stardom. The festival continues to expose music fans to the choicest independent voices in the London and international music scenes today.
The 1-2-3-4 Festival Experience
Billed as a "boutique music festival," 1-2-3-4 Festival treats fans to an eclectic mix of independent music. Past festivals featured international artists, including Fab Moretti from the trailblazing New York garage rock band the Strokes and San Diego lo-fi punk rockers the Crocodiles. These international artists have played alongside some of the hottest underground artists of London. Attendees witnessed the bluesy vocals of Florence and the Machine and rocked out to the styling of haunting psych pump artists La Femme and the sassy alternative all-female rockers the Dum Dum Girls.

The Festival at Home

Featuring songs like "Glory Days" by Carl Barat & the Jackals, "Celestine," by Spector and "Brickwork" by Milk Teeth, these playlists bring a taste of the festival right to your ears.
Carl Barat & the Jackals also put together a festival-related playlist for their fans, featuring PJ Harvey's "Chain of Keys," The Sleepy Jackson's "Rain Falls for Wind" and "We Were Children" by Tribes. This playlist gives music fans an inside look at what inspires the Jackals. Milk Teeth, also linked to the festival, released their own playlist, featuring songs like Greenday's "Longview," "Every Man Has a Molly" by Say Anything and "Sabotage" by the Beastie Boys. Many of the songs on their playlist were throwbacks to the 90s, including Smash Mouth's "All Star", which gives fans an idea of what influences their retro tunes.
