Jamboree welcomes the popular London clubnight Des Was a Bowie Fan, indiepop, new wave, 80s synth pop, 60s soul and rock’n’roll dancing through the early hours, with live musical guest the Skövde / South Coast dreamers Drömstad launching their ‘milk!’ EP and BlackMoon1348 filtering the magical mystery music of Tibet through industrial doomcore and tantric ritual mantra.

Drömstad have a sound of howling Pop empathy that gets into your bones; a euphoric, melancholic jangle and a burning lyrical interior, matching the serpentine dreaminess of Slowdive with a vivid, sharp-edged soul.

“The band exists in a black-leather dream city between Neko Case and Cocteau Twins; sweeping indie noir in a shoegaze-tinted Pop fantasy” – Oyster Boy

“From the depths of a clandestine Tibetan cave, lying high on a mountain peak, BlackMoon1348 was reincarnated”. The band play an extraordinary form of synth-layered Tibetan doomcore taking in ritualistic Tibetan chanting and tantric mantra, filled with Tibetan drums, Gyaling (Tibetan Oboe) and ceremonial Tibetan (Rolo) cymbals, bathed in solid red lights.
