Rocket Twenty: Day split/tickets revealed – Hills unfortunately cancel – Zimpel Ziolek join the party

We are happy to share with you the day splits for our Rocket Recordings Twenty event which is being held at The Garage in London on 9, 10, 11 March plus day tickets are now available to buy.

Tickets can be bought from here: Alt Tickets 

But before we reveal who is playing on what day we have some really sad news...

Hills cancel
We are extremely saddened to reveal that Hills have had to pull out of our Rocket Twenty event. We know that like us you were all very excited to see the bands first ever UK club show but they have informed us that due to extreme personal reasons they cannot make it in March. After being unable to get Oneida, The Heads, Lay Llamas and Shit & Shine to play we are now gutted to have to add Hills to that list of 'unable to play'. 

However, we do have some great news...

Zimpel Ziolek added to the bill
We are humbled to reveal that the great Polish duo Zimpel Ziolek are going to join our party. If you are uninitiated with Zimpel Ziolek – they made one of Rocket's favourite records of 2017 and The Quietus made their S/T album their No.2 Album of the Year. So to have them play their first ever UK show at Rocket Twenty is a massive honour and we are ecstatic to be able to see them live. Listen to (and immediately buy) their stunning album here: Instant Classic
