Compass Music Fest presents Riot Gulll’s Birthday with SKIES album launch + more TBA
🔥 RIOT GULLL’s 1st Birthday at Compass Music Festival: A Year in Review 🔥
Since its inception at The Chambers in November 2022, RIOT GULLL has been a stalwart advocate for women and gender minorities in alternative rock and post-punk genres. We’ve quickly become a cornerstone of feminist activism in the music scene, drawing a diverse crowd from across Kent and beyond.
🎪 Compass Music Festival and SKIES Album Launch 🎪
Part of the Compass Music Festival, taking place from 10-12 November in Folkestone’s Creative Quarter, RIOT GULLL’s 1st birthday bash at the Quarterhouse aims to spotlight new talent. Our first announced act is SKIES, a Folkestone-based duo that has garnered attention from BBC Introducing, Kendal Calling, and Spotify editorial playlists such as All New Rock. They bring a unique blend of rock, alternative, and pop to the stage. In a special milestone, SKIES will also be launching their debut album ‘Is It All In Our Heads?’ at this event, providing a local yet groundbreaking start to the festivities.
Riot Gulll Club Night
What about our trademark DJ sets? No worries, they’re still on. Female DJs will roll out the indie, rock, and post-punk anthems, but at a different venue this time. Ticket holders get priority for this afterparty.
🎶 Band Legacy 🎶
We’ve championed electrifying bands that are now making waves—HotWax, CLT DRP, Dream Nails, Shelf Lives, A Void, Loose Articles, Collars, and SUN. All of them debuted in Folkestone with us, underlining our knack for spotting talent—from other seaside music hotspots and beyond.
🎫 Tickets 🎫
We’ve introduced tiered tickets with super early-bird & advance purchase perks. We also have our usual concessions available for students, under-18s, and low-income individuals. Snag tickets early to show support and sustain this indie vibe.
🤝 Mutual Support 🤝
We’re committed to giving back. A pound from each ticket goes to the indispensable Folkestone Women’s Forum. They gave us a platform at their Take Up Space Festival last March, and now we’re returning the favour.
🎉 Props to Creative Folkestone 🎉
A big shout-out to Creative Folkestone’s Festival Fund, which backs the Compass Music Festival and supports our endeavour.
