For 2019 our main music stage in Tanner Street Park is supported by Sellar and we are very pleased to welcome The Underdog Gallery on Crucifix Lane who have curated the line up.

Underdog London was first established back in 2007 on the Old Kent Road SE1, as an art gallery and live music studio. The ethos was to promote up and coming artists and creatives of all types and genres but mostly in the graphic art and rock music scenes, gig poster design, graffiti / street and outsider art.

The Underdog has since evolved in its current surroundings since 2011 as part of The Bermondsey Street vibe, while remaining true to its ethos of championing the outsider, but working and growing alongside some amazing, up and coming and well established artists and musicians.

As an eclectic arts and music bar with a welcoming environment for everyone to enjoy we’re really pleased to be given this opportunity to curate the Sellar Stage for Festival 2019.

London based singer, multi-instrumentalist, and producer 1403 (fourteen-o-three) has been something of an enigma over the past few years.

An early introduction at age 5 to Sgt Pepper, Tom sights as the moment ‘my world changed forever’.
During his early teens he immersed himself into the Underground Rave and Electronic music scene that emerged in the UK before self-learning guitar and forming his first band at aged 16.
Since then he has popped up in various guises including UK Rock Trio ‘Crystal Head’ writing and collaborating with artists such as House Music legend Sasha, Disturbing London’s G-FrSH and Cypress Hill to name a few and he has also contributed to various film scores and advertising campaigns across a wide range of genres and styles.
