LTN: No Friends In The Industry

Love Thy Neighbour’s unofficial parties return!

No Friends in the Industry is a free entry floor show in the bar area of The Hope & Ruin. The stage runs across all three days of the festival from Thursday 16th May to Saturday 18th May.


2.30pm – Psymon Spine:

3.30pm – The Belair Lip Bombs: The band has really hit their stride recently with the release of their debut album ‘Lush Life’. The record is 10 tracks of evocative exploration; stories that run a gamut of longing, seeking new horizons and discovering new paths to satisfaction and self-fulfillment. It showcases the bands evolution and song writing abilities with striking indie arrangements and catchy hooks.The album is starting to catch worldwide attention and the band is gearing up towards a breakout year in 2024.

4.30pm – smol fish: Indie pop four-piece smol fish are a band of best friends from Boorloo, Australia. With earnest lyricism and playful instrumentation, the band explores the lovely and lonesome aspects of being a 20-something navigating the world today. Though self-described as “not big,” smol fish have already achieved some notable accomplishments in their music career. They have been selected as a Triple J Unearthed feature artist, their song “Sad Girl Summer” was the most played track on RTRFM in 2021 and, in 2022, smol fish had the incredible opportunity to support Noah Dillon on a national tour, playing in 12 cities across Australia

5.30pm – The Tubs: London-based Welsh band The Tubs announce their debut album, Dead Meat, out 27th January via Trouble in Mind. Owen “O” Williams and George “GN” Nicholls, the primary songwriters from the group Joanna Gruesome, formed the band in 2018 following a trip to Llawr-Betws caravan park.

7.30pm – Florry

8.30pm – My First Time: Bristol based quartet My First Time have their foot pressed firmly on the accelerator. With driving guitar hooks, and waspish vocal lines that capture observations of modern society and all its idiosyncrasies, they package these ingredients into three minute post-pop nuggets.

9.30pm – For Breakfast: Hailing from North London, For Breakfast pull together individuals from a variety of musical backgrounds as they set about bolting elements of dream pop, post-rock, jazz, noise rock and psychedelia together.

10.30pm – Hutch: While inter-mingling all this international psych-pop influence and escapist imagery, Hutch’s story so-far could not be told, or would not have happened without the current boom in their local Brighton grassroots circuit. What band describe as a “one-of-a-kind, close-knit community”, The scene has flourished since the pandemic, thriving on mutual support, close-collaboration, with a whole gamut of diverse, interesting acts, starting to reach audiences nationwide in the past 12 months
