Eight years, five albums, thousands of gigs, Glastonbury, Leeds Arena, and many a pub and front room up and down the country – Hope & Social do the things every band does. But then so much more. A peoples’ band at heart, they involve their audiences in as many ways as possible; singing on their records, appearing in their videos and by always making their shows life-affirming experiences.Described as “one of the UK’s top five live bands” ~ The Independent
With their energetic, joyful, dance-along music and impeccable showmanship, Hope & Social create a truly unmissable experience.
Don’t believe us? (and fair enough if so)
