2nd October:

Titans in the London alternative scene, Eat Your Own Ears have been fundamental in making the live music environment in the capital one of the best and most innovative in the world. Continuing to shine a light on huge artists early into their careers, EYOE’s shows have become the stuff of legend, and this trait naturally bled into Field Day, one of the city’s most revered festivals.Therefore, it only makes sense that Eat Your Own Ears and Field Day join forces to curate the opening night of CRATEDIGGERS at The Woods.

9th October:

Another label that operates on a different level, Moshi Moshi have a reputation as one of the innovative record labels in the world, bringing the likes Hot Chip and Bloc Party to the masses while still championing leftfield talent. With arguably their most intriguing project, By The Sea Festival, taking place in Margate in November, this seems like the perfect time to give fans an insight into the music that influenced such a game-changing label.

16th October:

Originally started as a club night in 2005 before becoming one of the UK’s finest independent labels, getting Sunday Best to curate the second edition of CRATEDIGGERS the following week was a no brainer. Celebrating their 10th year since the seminal Sunday Best Presents, the acclaimed label will be bringing the originality that encapsulates their roster to East London for what promises to be a stunning night.

23rd October:

When one thinks of the first music blogs to really take the internet by storm, Drowned In Sound will always be in conversation. Celebrating their 15th birthday at The Woods, their edition of CRATEDIGGERS looks set to provide an intriguing look into what has inspired them most over the last decade and a half (with added party hats and streamers we hope).

30th October:

Finally, acclaimed tech journalist Mic Wright will be closing the first month of events with the launch of brand new website A revered writer, journalist and entrepreneur, his edition of CRATEDIGGERS will be incomparably original and on a completely different tangent.

With a whole host of brilliant influencers already in the pipeline for November and beyond, CRATEDIGGERS at The Woods is set to be rammed!

Fuelled by Pistonhead Lager, the night will offer up a full menu of boilermakers, picklebacks and custom cocktails.
