Fast & Bulbous Festival – Annual Hull Adelphi Fundraiser is set for August 16th, 17th & 18th 2019.
It’s not the biggest festival of 2019 but it’s the most important. Without independent venues new music and artists would be fucked. The Adelphi takes no sponsorship from Fred Perry, EE, Doc Martens or Coca Cola, Carling or Shockwaves. It stands as a true and honest place. It needs you more than ever.

Friday night headliner, Funke and the Two Tone Baby, is a one man sonic explosion. Uncategorized and uncharted. Jammed halfway between frenzied alt-blues and metronomic dance beats. Combining guitar and harmonica with beatboxing and effects that seamlessly collide the organic with the mechanical to create a fresh sound of unstoppable rhythm and unrelenting melody.
From supporting Skinny Lister, Beans on Toast, Hayseed Dixie and Mercury Prize nominees The Comet is Coming, to a 40 date festival tour, including standout shows at Beautiful Days, Bearded Theory and Hungary’s Sziget Festival, Funke has quickly becoming a must-see act on the festival and touring circuit.
Saturday night headliner is our proud curator Bunkerpop. They cook music composed of the bass, the drums, the congas, the synths and have a guitar but where present it is percussive, a work of beats, pronouncements, and supergroove mania. There will be much dancing. This is not a cult.
Sunday’s headline act, Darren Hayman (former frontman of Hefner), is a thoughtful, concise and detailed songwriter. He eschews the big, the bright and the loud for the small, twisted and lost. For 15 years, and over 14 albums, Hayman has taken a singular and erratic route through England’s tired and heartbroken underbelly.
Hayman’s profoundly English songwriting is “the match of Ray Davies.” said The Guardian
