It's getting increasingly rarer that new festivals pop-up these days given the current economic climate, and it's even more of a rarity to hear of a festival as interesting and inventive as Brainchild.

Brianchild (not the love-child of Brianlove) have announced details of their inaugural, intimate festival, to be held in East Hampstead, Wokingham, on 29th June - 1st July. The three day music and culture festivities have been organised by a smart group of London-based students in little over three months, with a strong ethos in nurturing and supporting local artists and youth culture in the UK.

The line-up includes acts such as:

Palmistry / The Skywalkers / Pandr Eyez Voyeur / Southpaw / Blaenavon / Atlas / Death Rattle / Cholombian / Phosphor / Peace N Dub / Samantha Whates / Entertainment / Onoe Caponoe / Michael Wookey / Haraket / The Majestic / Skanky / Nomad Soul / Jack In Water / Blood Sport / Waskerley Way / Tri:Bal / Himalayan Headwaters / Rfk / Martyna Baker / Jocie Juritz / Henry Skewes / Beau / Boxset / Napper / Local Authority / Orgy Banton / Dj Travisty+Dan Gar Dan+Typa / Byo / Biddly / We Are Goose / Sam & Isaac / Strangelove / Pink Crudge Caravan / Jonny Williams / Sanjaypoyzer / Matt Black

With Poetry and Spoken Word from:

Jodi Ann Bickley / Harry Baker / Bridget Minamore / Chime?Ne Suleyman / Zia Ahmed / James Massiah / Sean Mahoney / Rosie Knight / James Bunting / Le Comte Do Longhorn / Ned Carter Miles / Tom Sanders / Toby De Angeli & Nichol Keene / Justina Ogunseitan / Augustine Cerf

And also Comedy shows and a fine selection of Film Screenings, new and old.
