It's that time of the year again when ice breaker festival graces the pubs and bars of Albert road and Elm grove! Here at Dress Code we are more than excited to start the year off with a weekend full of great bands from all across the UK. A 2 day even, Friday night and all day Saturday, where all of Albert road and Elm grove opens its doors to 100's of acts! Being a Vinyl store in Southsea we have seen 100's and 100's of different records come in and out of our doors as well as 1000's of different people and bands who play and listen to all different types of music, and that is exactly what Southsea's Ice Breaker festival is all about!
if you haven't been before it really isn't something you should miss! Here is something you can expect to get out of an ice breaker weekend. With 13 different venues and stages you best start finding out where you want to be and when because its easy to get distracted with there being post punk coming from one direction, a blues band from the other, the screeching sound of metal from over your shoulder and electro funk from god knows where! We have our eyes on a few bands that aren't to miss, Hallan, Skinny Milk and Barbudo being among some of our favourites here! Who knows, you might even find your new favourite band this weekend, even more you might find that they live just round the corner from you. Ice Breaker festival is one of those special festivals where everyone can come together and appreciate a huge range of music and can led to you discovering something you never even knew existed or could ever picture yourself liking! Ice breaker is also the biggest festival in the South for unsigned metropolitan bands, it's a great platform to give local bands a voice and a chance to perform in the heart of Southsea.
Some of this year's headliners are Wild Front at the Wedge, Shoot the Duke down at the wine vaults, Lily Garland on Friday and Capital Fuzz on Saturday at the loft and truly a ton more!
