Raw Power Festival May 2018
This was my second visit to a Raw Power Festival. A festival featuring some of the best psych heaviness, space rock, synth craziness, left field electronica and much more. A festival where I've been drawn in by a headliner but have left having discovered new bands and new music.
Two years ago my mind was blown seeing Test Dept Redux for the first time ever. This year the promise of Godflesh had me buying a ticket months ago, and their set on Saturday was as powerful and mind-blowing as you could have wished for.
I also had the chance to see Belgian punk noise outfit Cocaine Piss for the first time. Their 25 minute set flew by in a very enjoyable blink of an eye.
The festival is brought to you by South London promoters Baba Yagas Hut. Look them up on social media or even better, buy a ticket for one of their shows. They put on some amazing bands all across London and deserve loads of support.
Here's some photos.
