Under the Radar: Vansleep
The band have played Grampian Pride Festival and sold-out gigs in their hometown, including at Drummonds alongside fellow Aberdonian act The Capollos. We saw Vansleep play a high-energy set on the small Bella Bar stage and a stripped back live session with NetSounds at Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival this weekend, and we’ve no doubt they’ll be playing bigger stages soon. They launch their second single with a gig at the Lemon Tree in Aberdeen on 25 August, followed by a slot at Deeside Music Festival, which runs from 31 August to 1 September.
