Mutations is delighted to announce its third edition of the multi-venue Brighton festival this 4 – 7 November 2021. With a series of very special events, the festival will feature performances from a diverse and wide scope of 100 exciting new and established artists around 11 of Brighton’s most treasured Grassroots Music Venues across 4 days – a celebration of music returning to the city this Autumn.
The festival will include live sets from artists including Anna Meredith, Baxter Dury, BEAK>, This Is The Kit, Working Men’s Club, Bill Ryder-Jones, Billy Nomates, Ross From Friends, Yard Act, PVA, Scalping, Rozi Plain, Wu-Lu, The Goa Express, Pillow Queens & more, in Grassroots Music Venues including Chalk, The Old Market, Patterns, Green Door Store, The Hope and Ruin, Latest Music Bar, Komedia Studio Bar and others.
Founded in 2015, the genre-melting Mutations edition 001 set the foundation for its daring line-ups to come. 2019’s edition saw a mysterious venue unearthed on the outskirts of the city as Mutations 002 evolved into a powerhouse of creative exploration.
Arriving at any place and at any time, Mutations Festival is an ever evolving and unforeseen meeting of like-minded music fans, hungry to uncover the unknown and the unexpected.
As this spinning marble we call home finally starts to return to normal, we felt it only right for Mutations Festival 003 to return to central Brighton. Mutations Festival is curated and produced by concert promoters FORM. Based in London and Brighton, FORM produce over 600 events a year for artists including Father John Misty, Glass Animals, The War on Drugs, Future Islands, Flume, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Courtney Barnett, and many more, as well as the Pitchfork London, Visions and Wave Festivals.
With a passionate belief that festival goers should always have access to enjoy the headline acts, the multi-venue structure of Mutations 003 sees the festival use more intimate venues during the day, with the capacities increasing and the venue options decreasing as the day goes on, culminating in one single headline stage where all customers can enjoy the final acts of the night.
Get ready to embrace the experimental and the brave at Mutations Festival 2021.
