Live In Pictures: 20 Years of Joy Weekender – Day 1

The heart of New Cross reverberated with musical magic on the opening day of the much-awaited weekender celebrating two decades of Joyzine. 

The festival kicked off with a fantastic lineup that had the crowd dancing, singing, and basking in the rare London sunshine. Gabi Garbutt’s soulful vocals and magnetic stage presence set the tone, followed by the enigmatic Dead Patrons, who had the audience hanging onto every note. MJ Hibbett’s witty lyricism and infectious energy brought smiles aplenty, while post-punk duo Deux Furieuses raw and powerful performance left hearts racing. Hurtling’s dreamy sonic landscapes provided a moment of ethereal escape, paving the way for day one’sheadline act, none other than the enchanting Piney Gir, who captivated all with her indie-pop prowess. 

Joyzine’s Nina Fritsch was there to photograph the fun.
