Head down to the North Lawn early for Lakeside Live and grab some delicious food from the Street Food Friday stalls, relax in a deckchair or bring a picnic blanket and enjoy your lunch listening to music from local musician Ben Brookes live and fresh from his set at Victorious Festival.
English-born singer-songwriter with a soft spot for sharp hooks and Indie pop melodies Ben’s influences lay deep in old-school grounds. Citing bands like Pink Floyd and The Beatles among his influences, Ben captures a melodic simplicity peppered with 90’s Britannia youth, lifted with a Smiths-esque groove that’ll keep your foot tapping throughout the evening.
He’s best-regarded for his sharp hooks and indie-pop melodies, cut with dark heartfelt abandon of love and hope. A true urban poet.
Ben’s debut studio album The Motor Car & The Weather Balloon has been described as a “thrilling cross pollination of American and English influences – a powerful release from the first to the last” by Music You Can Use.
Join us on Friday 28 September 2018 for the last Summer Session, exclusively for occupiers at Lakeside North Harbour.
