FREE ENTRY

FORTNIGHT IN FLORIDA  ‘Fortnight In Florida’ are a London based 4-piece hailing Toro Y Moi, Holy Ghost! and Hot Chip amongst their biggest influences.  Born from a shared love of disco, synth pop, and encyclopaedic regurgitations of Alan Partridge quotes, ‘Fortnight In Florida’ symbolises the anticipation of escaping the daily grind, expressed by their own brand of ‘Chilled Electronic Pop’.  After finishing a tour as Keys player for Lianne La Havas, the bands Singer-songwriter Simon Middleton met Eamonn Dawe (Bass/Guitars) on a previous musical venture and ‘Fortnight In Florida’ was formed, shortly followed by Andrew Gallop on Drums and Lyle Moxsom on Guitars.  With 3 singles and a debut EP ‘So Long’ released in 2016, ‘Fortnight In Florida’ made the ‘Glastonbury 2016 Emerging Talent Longlist’ and the ‘Unsigned Guide’s Emerging Acts of 2017’ list having already featured in their Spotlight blog – their tracks ‘Cameo’ and ‘It’s Alright’ both made the ‘Fresh On The Net’ Fresh faves, and enjoyed Radio play on BBC6 Music and Amazing Radio.  In 2017 they launched a crowd funding campaign to help them raise funds to record their debut album at Rockfield in South Wales, UK. With the final touches being made to the album they look set to release the album in the Spring 2019   https://www.fortnightinflorida.com/
