Mutations Festival 2022 (part 1)

Mutations Festival opening day, Chalk Brighton, 3rd November 2022

An international flavour to open and close day one at Chalk, the biggest venue taking part in this year’s Mutations Festival, as things kicked off with The Netherlands’ indie-pop outfit Pip Blom, and finished with the riotous glory of Russia’s Pussy Riot. Deftly sandwiched in the middle were Manchester electro wizards WH Lung and dream-psych Brighton favourites Penelope Isles.
