Performances by Christopher Owens, Metz, and Ought are amongst the highlights of this year’s Mutations festival in Brighton.
For a brand-new festival, Mutations has big aspirations. It’s similar to The Great Escape in the sense that it’s spread across multiple venues on a single weekend, but the line-up is more diverse – focusing on hybridity and experimentation, the festival features intimate performances by the likes of Willis Earl Beal (pictured above), Best Friends, Chelsea Wolfe, Kagoule, and more.
As if the genre-spanning line-up wasn’t enough, there will also be photography, poster art exhibitions and pop-up record fairs throughout the weekend to ensure everyone’s tastes are catered for.
Mutations is organised so that as the day progresses, the amount of stages decrease while the venue capacities increase, meaning that this reduces clashes so you don’t have to run around deciding who to see and who not to see – you can see everyone.
The festival is split between the two halves of Brighton – Hove on Saturday and Brighton on Sunday. What this means is that travel between venues is shorter and over the weekend you will get the opportunity to visit the best venues in Brighton & Hove, hosting the crop of current artistes from across the globe.
