Beyond the Redshift – an all day one day festival taking place in three London venues ; The dome, The Boston Music Rooms and The Kentish town forum. It’s something as ambitious as it is beautiful, it’s also a return for Cult of Luna who have gone from strength to strength since last years double releases of Vertikal – parts one and two.
