CocteauFest 2018!

Friday 9.21.18 join Dancing Ghosts, SF’s Darkwave Danceparty, for COCTEAUFEST 2018!

CocteauFest is an annual gathering of Cocteau Twins fans. The band will not be in attendance, but fans from all over the world will gather, meet, talk, and dance.

CocteauFest has been in existence since 2003, so come to our 15th gathering in San Francisco this year!

Feel free to use the Facebook pages to communicate with us and other fans and arrange travel plans. We hope to see you there!

In the frontroom DJs Xander and Sage will spin exclusively Cocteau Twins, both well-loved favorites and deeper cuts from the nearly 20-year catalogue, plus side projects and covers. Five Hours, Non-Stop – No Repeats!

The backroom – DARKWAVE to DREAMPOP. DJs Joe Radio and Nako will spin 80s/90s shoegaze, ethereal, darkwave and dreampop from “brethren” artists including My Bloody Valentine, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Ride, Lush, Cranes, Dead Can Dance, Slowdive, Catherine Wheel, Curve, and many others!

Enter to win vinyl represses of classic Cocteau Twins albums “Treasure” and “Head Over Heels” courtesy of 4AD!
