Friday saw Saltwater Sun, Childcare, Patawawa and Dextric, as well as DJ Liam James Ward who took over our Instagram for the night – you can still check that out! Follow @indiecentralmusic.

Saturday included some amazing up and coming stars including, Banfi, Birthday Card, Shanghai Blues and Spinn, who headline their first festival after the successes of their debut album. Plus many more to check out!

Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen is such an amazing venue, ICM has been there many times before as it’s just an enjoyable venue to be at. The spacious bar area, a large music room and is a good location for a live music venue to be situated.

This year saw Close Up Festival move across two days (Friday and Saturday 17 & 18) and was another brilliant success. Lively crowds, fun atmospheres and great music made sure that the almost sold-out festival was another one not to be missed.
