Frank Turner announces his own four-day festival

The 'Lost Evenings' will take place in May

Frank Turner will put on his own four-day festival at London’s Roundhouse venue next year.

The songwriter, who last released an album in 2015 with ‘Positive Songs for Negative People’, is staging a day-and-night set of events across four days in May at the iconic venue in the capital.

Running from May 12-15, the festival – entitled ‘Lost Evenings’ – is being put on by Turner in association with the non-profit organisation OneFest . Taking place both in the daytime and the evening, Turner will headline and curate each day’s programme of events. He will lead his band, The Sleeping Souls, in two greatest hits shows – entitled ‘Last Minutes and Lost Evenings’ – on the opening and closing night of the festival (May 12 and 15).

On May 13, meanwhile, Turner will perform his debut album ‘Sleep Is For The Weak’ in its entirety to mark its 10th anniversary, while on May 14 he will headline a special acoustic night with some TBA special guests.

Tickets for the ‘Lost Evenings’ go on sale on Friday (December 10) at 10am.

Turner will release a new film, Get Better, next week (December 13) for one night only in UK cinemas. Chronicling “drinking, drugs and self-destruction” during a “difficult” year of his life, a special screening of the film will also take place on the same day in London’s Leicester Square, where Turner will take part in a special Q&A – tickets are available here.
