Yungblud Announces Own Festival ‘Bludfest’ Announces First Names

Yungblud has taken yet another extraordinary step in his music career with the creation of his very own festival BLUDFEST.

This summer, the first edition of Bludfest will take place on the 11th of August at the Milton Keynes Bowl. The festival will be headlined by Yungblud himself. The line-up features the likes of Lil Yachty, Nessa Barrett, Soft Play, The Damned & more. There are also still names to be revealed for the line-up.

Regarding the creation of the festival, Yungblud shared the following statement on social media alongside the festival announcement:

5 years ago we imagined a world of our own. In @blud_fest we are physically going to build one. This will be a physical safe space where people can come and celebrate the ideologies of this community – where unity, individuality and love is the main focus and we bring the world of Yungblud to fucking life right before your eyes. I wanted to build an experience where anyone can be completely themselves, with their friends, their family or completely on their own. I want to create an experience that blurs the lines of genre, destroys the limitation of imagination, cuts the corporate bullshit and is all about people coming together.

Tickets will go on pre-sale this Thursday at 10AM local time, with the general sale kicking off a day later. Check the post below for more information and get ready for Yungblud’s BLUDFEST!

YUNGBLUD expressed his excitement about teaming up with Lil Yachty, emphasizing the shared rebellious spirit that has fueled their creative connection since 2019.

“Me and Yachty have been talking since 2019, and I’ve always thought we were on the same trip – fuck the rules, push things forward.

So, when I wrote the song, I knew he’d add something amazing. I wanted this moment to be a collision of each other’s imagination and sound. I’m really excited about it and for what it could potentially inspire between the future of alternative and hip-hop. Press play.”

YUNGBLUD Unleashes Vibrant New Era With ‘Lowlife’

YUNGBLUD, the fearless artist celebrated for his unapologetic style and captivating performances, has made a powerful return with his first music release of 2023. Titled Lowlife, this infectious and bouncy singalong not only signifies the beginning of a new era for YUNGBLUD but also showcases his unwavering commitment to authentic self-expression.

Lowlife delves deep into YUNGBLUD’s introspection, providing listeners with a raw and unfiltered glimpse into his emotional journey. Reflecting on the inspiration behind the track, he shares, “I wrote ‘Lowlife’ because I just didn’t want to leave my house. I was sick of people, of games, of myself, my friends. Anytime I did anything, some idiot had an opinion about it. What I should do or be. The truth is I didn’t want to be anything at all sometimes, I wanted to be nothing. So I just didn’t leave bed. I was dissatisfied and craving some sort of boredom. The type of boredom where you sit in your house, in the same sheets, and watch fucking mind-numbing TV, so I wrote a song about it.”

This introspective exploration is characteristic of YUNGBLUD’s artistry, where he fearlessly confronts societal expectations and navigates the complexities of self-identity through his music. With Lowlife, he continues to forge an authentic connection with his listeners, speaking to a generation grappling with similar battles against conformity and the search for personal truth.

Prior to the release of Lowlife, YUNGBLUD engaged his dedicated fans in a thrilling teaser campaign. Hand-written notes were sent worldwide, leading fans on an exhilarating treasure hunt across cities such as London, LA, and Germany. These devoted supporters were ultimately rewarded with exclusive first listens to the track, adding to the mounting excitement surrounding YUNGBLUD’s new musical offering.

With Lowlife, YUNGBLUD proves once again his ability to infuse infectious energy and captivating lyricism into his music. The track serves as a powerful reminder of his talent for transforming personal experiences into anthems that resonate deeply with his audience.
