Following a fantastic 2023 where West Yorkshire, Keighley-bred ska punk icons Random Hand celebrated their 20th anniversary as a band with a chart topping new self-titled album for Bomber Music, and a sold-out HandFest at The Dome in North London which Rockshot Magazine went along to check out, the band are primed to hit 2024 with two more huge HandFest events in both London and Leeds.
Random Hand - Handfest @ The Dome
First up, the Leeds HandFest is confirmed to take place at the Brudenell Social Club over three days between 23rd and 25th August 2024. Three days, two stages, no clashes, over thirty bands. London HandFest follows over two days on the 20th and 21st of September 2024 at The Dome & Boston Music Room in Tufnell Park, North London with over twenty bands.
Check out the highlights reel for this year’s London HandFest event below:
“After the all-round success of the first HandFest, it seemed rude not to do it again,” state the band. “More bands, more fun! That’s the way it works, right? The weekend will feature two Random Hand sets. For the first set the group will be performing their debut album Change Of Plan in full! The second set will be a full banger, spanning their whole career. Expect the cream of the crop from the UK punk & Ska scene, and maybe some other surprises! Keep your eyes peeled for lineup announcements!” Leeds tickets are available here and London tickets are available here.
