YHA Road Trip kicks off in London with exciting new band The Intermission Project

Youth hostelling first took root in Germany in the early years of the 20th century but it took a further twenty years to establish its market in the UK. The Youth Hostels Association’s new project The YHA Road Trip marks an exciting new development in the charity’s 80-year history and serves to remind us why youth hostelling in the UK is still the best way for students and young people to travel cheaply and stay in central locations. The Intermission Project, one of the UK’s most exciting unsigned bands, formed in 2011, will be accompanying The YHA as they go cross-country, spreading the word in a VW campervan. The band’s recent sets at packed London venues and festival sports at Green Man, Beach Break Live and The Great Escape has meant that the band has not passed unnoticed under the radar of The BBC: ‘Sorry’ has been played across the country on local BBC radio and on Tom Robinson’s BBC 6 Show. The week-long tour will wind through St Pauls, Danywenallt, Bristoland to Treyarnon before looping back up to London. The talented young performers will be debuting soulful tracks such as ‘Sorry’, ‘Winter Snow’ and ‘Empty Promises’ in settings as diverse as a campfire in Wales, a bay in Cornwall and a rooftop in London. Meanwhile The Mahogany Sessions will capture YHA’s new venture through the vibrant and varied locations that their hostels boast, in a series of videos and sessions. The full schedule is as follows: Tuesday 6th August – intimate acoustic gig on the grounds of YHA Danywenallt (Talybont-on-Usk, Brecon, Powys, LD3 7YS)
