Fat Out Til You Pass Out announce A-Bound Festival, a national collaboration of unorthodox music and interactive art. Running for 5 days from Wednesday 23 to Sunday 27 March A-Bound Festival brings a diverse line-up of promoters, musicians, DJs and artists working against the edges of their field from across the UK to Salford, Greater Manchester.

A-Bound festival is a platform for Fat Out to bring national audiences to our Burrow and to solidify our establishing relationships with promoters, labels, and artists from around the UK. Since Fat Out Fest 2014 collaboration has become the heart of Fat Out and has supported and enabled our mission to produce genre defying programs. A-Bound Festival takes this collaborative spirit and turns it into a rowdy and intense five-day series of mysterious music with the aim to bring future collaboration with and for everyone involved, as well as an ace Easter weekend party of course.
