WRONG is one day of freaky musical wonderment. A new festival based in Liverpool’s docklands on the 22nd of April 2017that brings together the heavier and weirder corners of rock music, from punk to noise to psychedelia and everywhere inbetween. For one day in April, Loner Noise presents to you a selection of some of the finest freaked out bands around. The Invisible Wind Factory takes pride of place as our headline stage, as well as a communal area with art installations and record stalls, the North Shore Troubadour features a vast palette of musical delights and continues well into the small hours, and Drop the Dumbulls houses our most intense and visceral acts in its own Shangri-La like settings.

Joining the already-announced 2018 headliners, cult Cardiff rock band FUTURE OF THE LEFT (feat. members of Mclusky and Million Dead), organisers are pleased to reveal that MUGSTAR will be performing alongside DAMO SUZUKI as his backing band for the evening.
Also appearing as part of the newly announced clutch will be: politically-minded Manchester noiserockers GNOD, Britain’s dirtiest doom-metal band CONAN, abrasive Bristol noiseout bunch SPECTRES, noisy progressive Leeds artpunks BILGE PUMP, fellow Yorkshire post-punks THANK, London alternative math-rock outfit DEATH AND THE PENGUIN, rising Brummie garage punks TABLE SCRAPS, Leeds noiserock trio IRK, local garage noise quartet OHMNS, the stoner/doom of BURIED SLEEPER, and acerbic experimental punks ALPHA MAID.
Also populating the stages across the three venues will be further newly revealed additions including London rock duo TOKYO TABOO, garage rock two piece SONS, psych-tinged jazz punks LUCY LEAVE, Liverpool prog beasts BISCH NADAR, and heavy punks SALT THE SNAIL in a special VS set with BLEACH SWEETS, in which they’ll face off with alternate songs picking who goes first with a coin toss. Joining them will be industrial noise band LONESAW, Bristol dreampop artist PATCHWORK GUILT, noisy psych-rock quintet PSYBLINGS, Liverpool rockers SWEARWOLVES, and a special DJ set from former MUMS drummer LEWIS O’NEILL.
Elsewhere on the bill, festival organisers Loner Noise Records will be showcasing their own raft of talent with appearances from their roster including weirdrock trio ELEVANT, hotly-tipped artrock pals SPQR, doom-groove noise-mongers GRAVVES, singer-sludgewriter KAPIL SESHASAYEE, garage punks BLACK PUDDING and industrial post-punk band NASTY LITTLE LONELY.
WRONG Festival organiser Michael Edward commented on the additions: “I’m incredibly proud of this line up. I always try to make my way to as many sets as possible when I put on the festival, in between all the running around organising things, and this year I’m going to have my work cut out. Gnod made my favourite record of last year. Conan are legends, and are one of Liverpool’s greatest bands. Spectres are an absolute hellscape.
“I’ve done my best to spoil everyone for choice from the top of the bill to the bottom, and with a breadth of genres from punk rock to psychedelia to doom metal to noise and even to dream pop. Some of these acts are genuine musical heroes of mine, so it’s an honour to be able to put on an event like this. It’s also nice to feature most of the Loner Noise roster once again. Really it’s just a cross section of bands that I adore, and I hope everyone else will too.” – www.WrongFestival.com
