Coming soon: The Leisure Society and Brian Eno

Monday, June 26th, 2023
The Leisure Society & Brian Eno - Brave Are The Waves

We’re extremely excited to announce a new collaboration. Back in 2008, our second ever release was The Leisure Society‘s debut album and it was a run-away success and the start of a long and diverse career. Now they’ve come back to us and they’ve brought the Godfather of ambient music, Brian Eno, along for the ride!

It’s out this Thursday on all digital platforms. Head to our instagram for a sneak preview.

The Leisure Society play the following live shows this November, click the venue for tickets and further information:

Willkommen guide to End of the Road festival

Wednesday, August 28th, 2013

For those of you off to End of the Road festival this weekend, there are lots of Willkommen related bands that you should go and see.




  • Ichi at 12:30pm in the Tipi Tent

We should have our own stage shouldn’t we?! Yes I think so too. We also highly recommend but aren’t yet affiliated with Joe Gideon and the Shark (0:30am, Saturday night, Tipi Tent), Bo Ningen (5pm, Sunday, Big Top) and the mighty David Byrne (9:30pm, Friday, Woods Stage) – one of the best live performers I’ve ever seen. This is quite a handy page for seeing all the stage times in one place. See you there!
