While next year’s event is bound to be a treat, I’ve decided to use this week’s feature slot to put the spotlight on a couple of forthcoming synthwave festivals to help tide you over until Retro Future Festival II.
Where? The Clapham Grand, London
When? 29th September 2017
Who? Sunglasses Kid, Timecop1983, Neon Lines, NINA, 80sSTALLONE
In any other universe, one might think that Outland London was staking itself as a competitor to Retro Future Festival. Both are summer synthwave events in London with similar lineups. That said, the Retro Future Festival team have been heavily promoting and putting light on Outland London, in yet another display of the synthwave scenes collaborative leanings.
The lineup is, of course, fantastic and Clapham is a great spot for an evening of fun. You’ll definitely be catching the Good Music Matters team here in a few week’s time…

Where? The Frog And Fiddle & The Two Pigs, Cheltenham
When? 15th December 2017
Who? Kenji Run, Cryocon, Star Noir, White Tiger, Kalax
The team responsible for the first Retro Future Festival have banded together to bring the synthwave community a very special winter party: Neon Winter.
The event features a great new lineup of artists from the genre, and is spread across two venues. The first venue will host the live music and the second will transform into an 80s club, complete with synthwave music and 80s visuals.
