Dials Festival 2019

October 5, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 11:30 pm

After its successful events in 2015, 2016 and 2018 Portsmouth’s Dials festival returns, bringing some of the best national and local new music talent to venues along Albert Road in Southsea, Portsmouth. The 2019 edition of Portsmouth’s new music discovery festival will take place on Saturday October 5th.

Once again the festival will be working with local charity Solent Mind, to continue the discussion of mental health issues with both its audience and artists as well as raising funds and awareness for the charity.

The previous Dials events were praised for their friendly community spirit, quality of acts, value for money and gender diversity of the bill. Dials alumni include Dream Wife, Fickle Friends, Tigercub, Estrons, Jerry Williams and Black Honey. In 2015 the event won ULX’s Best Small Festival award.
