New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Frank Turner's award-winning Lost Evenings Festival is back for another year, this time making its overseas debut at Boston's House Of Blues from May 16th - 19th. The four-day festival (winner of the AIM Best Independent Festival Award in September
2017) will take over the strip of Lansdowne Street opposite the legendary Fenway Park - home to the Boston
Red Sox - with events running throughout the day and evening celebrating live music.
The last two years have seen the festival cement its reputation as an event with community and camaraderie at its core. Both years were sold out months in advance, the crowds packing out each satellite event, each stage from start to finish, and of course coming together each night to share and rejoice in four very different performances from Turner.
Lost Evenings 3 will once again see Frank Turner
headline four shows in total. The first evening will open on Thursday, May 16th with Turner performing a solo acoustic night with the incredible Loudon Wainwright III as main support. Following on Friday, May 17th, Frank Turner
and the Sleeping Souls will perform his third album, Poetry Of The Deed, in full as it celebrates its 10th anniversary, with the best bar band in the world - The Hold Steady
as main support. On Saturday the 18th, the full band brings the recent Be More Kind World Tour set to the audiences supported by singer songwriter and frontman of The Weakerthans - John K. Samson, before returning on Sunday the 19th for a rousing Greatest Hits night supported by punk legends Against Me!
as part of an Xtra Mile Recordings label and friends night. Further support acts still to be announced.
There will be the second stage, the Nick Alexander
Stage, running concurrently across the weekend. Named after the merchandise manager and long-time friend of Turner's, who was tragically killed in the Bataclan attack in 2015 - the stage will honour his memory by playing host to some of the best emerging acts - personally selected by Frank Turner.
As with last year, in addition to the evening performances, a selection of panels, masterclasses and workshops will also run during the festival featuring leading industry insiders, musicians, experts and music professionals offering inspiration, insight and advice to audiences. The full programme of events will be announced soon.
Speaking about Lost Evenings 3, Turner says: "When the idea for Lost Evenings first came together, the plan was always for it to be a mobile concept, something I could take around the world. After two killer years at home in London, I'm very excited to bring the festival over the pond to my second home, Boston. The House Of Blues there is familiar and friendly territory for me, and the line-up this year might be my favourite one yet. I'm excited to see you all there."
