Music Festival



Main Stage | Saturday | TBA

Since coming together in 2017, the pair have proved that determined dedication through their infectious live show and a series of singles and EPs, including early releases ‘Daughters Of Daughters EP’ (2018) and ‘Wrong Girl, Honey EP’ (2019). Along the way, the duo have gained praise from NME, DIY, The Forty-Five, BBC Radio 1 and more, and risen through the ranks of the touring circuit bolstered by support slots with the likes of The Big Moon, Dream Wife and Pillow Queens. 

ARXX’s success was never a given, though – not least because both Hanni and drummer Clara Townsend were reckoning with their futures in music before they joined forces. Hanni’s old drummer had moved to Australia, and she was struggling to recruit someone who would take the project seriously. Clara, meanwhile, was also finding it hard to find someone else to be as “all in” on music as she was. 

Although they weren’t friends before Clara turned up to “audition” (although Hanni later revealed she was the only candidate), they had played shows together in their respective old bands and knew of and respected each other’s musicianship. That first proper meeting saw them click immediately and a great partnership blossom. “Once I’d met Hanni and we’d played a few shows together, I was like, ‘This is the funnest thing ever’,” Clara says. “I don’t think I’d really had that [feeling before] and we just couldn’t stop saying yes to everything for, like, three years.”
