We're delighted to be welcoming Youth Sector to the Isle of Wight for the first time! With support from locals The Optimists, this is guranteed to be a night to remember.

'Youth Sector’s music is a coiled spring of urgency and unpredictable energy; while lyrically offering a sense of catharsis for the confusion of modern adult life. Regimented drum beats and saw-tooth synth sounds are matched with erratic, yet dynamic vocals.

Taking influence from art school greats DEVO and Talking Heads, the Brighton art-rock 5 piece never revel in bleakness, managing to twist everyday narratives into music that is quite the opposite; upbeat, full of energy with irresistible hooks and choruses you can’t help but sing along with.'
