For many, Bestival last month was the end of festival season. Time to curl up for several hellish months of Later With Jools videos on YouTube. But what’s this? Hackney Wonderland festival? This weekend?! Across five (indoor) venues a few minutes’ walk from each other, it’s hosting a load of indie bands who refuse to smile. Yuck, Crocodiles, Swim Deep and Tempesst are the ones to check out.
