Hope & Social

Hope and Social are a band... but not just a band. As well as the proper bandy type things like gigging, touring, playing festivals, making and releasing records, they also like to involve people in most everything they do. Whether that's teaching 1200 people their songs in 8 weeks - to play with them on their Tour of Infinite Possibility, embarking upon a magical-mystery-open-top-bus-trip with their fans for a secret gig on a beach, or turning their studio into a bistro and conducting a 70 strong wine-bottle orchestra on their records... Hope and Social like to have a lot of fun, and make art.

Oh, and they wear blue jackets and aim to die with their hearts out in bloom.

Hope and Social create events to remember – they really do.
