This Feeling started life as a monthly club night night in London 12 years ago and has organically become the nation’s No.1 live new music event with nights all over the UK from London, Cardiff and Manchester to Dundee, Grimsby and Plymouth plus stages at major festivals including Isle of Wight and Y Not Festival but the ethos always remains the same and real…
“This Feeling put on bands they love and back them to the hilt”

Bands to have emerged via This Feeling include Catfish and The Bottlemen, Blossoms, Bang Bang Romeo, The Struts and many more…
Representing the very best of new British guitar bands the Alive 2018 line-up is headlined by Libs and Liam favs Trampolene with support from rock N soul groovers The Surrenders and shoegazers Lacuna Bloome PLUS in keeping with This Feeling’s ethos in supporting the local scene, the cream of the local acts each city will open each night…
Trampolene frontman Jack Jones says:
“We can’t wait to get back out on the road. The ‘Alive’ tour is the nearest thing to an old Skool NME Tour and it means everything to us. We will give our all, as thats all we can give and we will try our best, as that’s the best we can do. It’s never been easy for working class bands… how do I eat… how long can we keep this going… I want to live until I die and hopefully we will entertain you…”

 The Surrenders say:
“For two weeks we can sack the day job off and live exactly how we’ve always intended, on the road. To live out of a van or on friends’ living room floors, playing our music in a different city every night is what rock and roll is all about. Not many artists have things to say that apply to the people who listen to their music and modern life, but this tour we’re really gonna take a stab at it and have a party in the process!” 

 Lacuna Bloome said: 
“Getting this tour has been an absolute god send. We can’t wait to take our songs to parts of the country we’ve never been to before, along with two other amazing bands. It’s going to be a whole new experience. Bringing guitar music back to the masses is only a step closer”
