It all kicks off on Friday 19th February with Tyneside punk duo Voodoo Radio, Catalan indie star Nadia Sheikh, award-winning rock songstress Verity White, Scottish 3-piece Primes and guitar wizard Frank Palangi among those playing.
On Saturday 20th February, alternative country songstress Emily Zuzik will be headlining. Other highlights that day will include Texan rockers Onism, gifted singer/songwriter Calum Jones, innovative multi-instrumentalist Paul Iwan, folk/Americana specialist Sophie Dorsten and Canadian metal group Highfront, plus aspiring Welsh acts Jack Ellis and Alcie Bela.
This will be followed on Sunday 21st February by acoustic artist Steve Hewitt, blues pairing When Rivers Meet, Liverpudlian indie act the Banshees and country diva September Campbell. Irish folk singer Ronan Gallagher, Israeli songstress Gili Kimchi and Luna Keller are also among those participating.
“Though we are only a small operation, Wigwam has been consistently punching above its weight,” states Radio Wigwam co-founder Mike Green. “The individual live sessions we did last spring and summer showed that there is a real demand for good quality music to help keep everyone sane during these difficult times, gaining hundreds of thousands of views. This February we are stepping things up, organising a 3-day long online festival packed with plenty of talented bands and solo artists.”
“With live venues still shut, musicians are no longer able to perform in front of audiences in the way they once did. Through this virtual festival, we want to provide them with a platform so that they can interact with music fans again,” adds Christian John, fellow Radio Wigwam co-founder. “We are hoping to make this a really unique and successful event.”
