Los Angeles Substance Festival Is Almost There!

Substance Festival
Days 1 & 2 of Substance Festival

Substance Festival is almost there and the lineup looks incredible. The Los Angeles post-punk fest, presented by Restless Nites, Spaceland, and Live Nation, will kick off November 26, just after Thanksgiving, and will fill your appetite for industrial, new-wave, darkwave, and experimental acts for three days. The beautiful historic Belasco Theatre, located downtown Los Angeles, will host the event that will take place across three stages with a very packed lineup.

Substance fest is actually returning for its second year with an expanded lineup featuring famous veteran acts such as British pop perverts Nitzer Ebb or no wave scene queen Lydia Lunch, but also newcomers including a few local favorites of mine like Plague Vendor, N8NOFACE, and NIIS. The festival is effectively described as a “testament to the enduring sounds of post-punk, industrial, new wave, synth-pop, and experimental” and “features today’s most compelling acts as well as the pioneers who forged the way.”

Chelsea Wolfe is headlining Friday night, Nitzer Ebb are headlining Saturday night, while HEALTH and John Maus are co-headlining Sunday night. Here is the full lineup:

Friday, November 26th

Chelsea Wolfe, Earth, Emma Ruth Rundle, Ceremony, King Woman, Plague Vendor, Kid Congo & the Pink Monkey Birds, NIIS, Avalon Lurks, Bustié, Pixel Grip, Aurat, Crook, Continues, Dearly Departure, Closed Tear, The Bank of America

Saturday, November 27th

Nitzer Ebb, Squid, Eyedress, Twin Tribes, Provoker, VR SEX, Nuovo Testamento, Second Skin, Some Ember, Fearing, N8NOFACE, Gel Set, Houses Of Heaven, Physical Wash, Fawns Of Love, Future Blondes, Ravens Moreland

HEALTH, John Maus, Choir Boy, Geneva Jacuzzi, Lydia Lunch Retrovirus, Riki, Pictureplane, Debby Friday, Patriarchy, Plack Blague, Lower Tar, D.I.N., Spike Hellis, Milliken Chamber, 0/X, Omen Awry, Future Of Horror

As this is the case for all music events, Substance will require proof of COVID-19 vaccination for all attendants. Grab your single-day tickets or your 3-day passes on the festival website.
