OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE
NEWS PROVIDED BY
After the storming success of their PRS-funded livestreamed “Gig in a Box” in September, Dream Nails announce their next livestreamed show ‘Feministmas’ on 6th December. Tickets for the show are on sale today, along with the second round of their signature “Gig In A Boxes” to recreate the live gig experience at home. For their last live-streamed show, the at-home packages (which sold out in 48 hours) included wristbands, plectrums, a piece of sticky venue flooring and more. Fans can buy a livestream ticket for pay-what-you-want donation (suggested price £5) or they can purchase a Gig In A Box and livestream ticket package for £22.
Dream Nails have revealed that, in true DIY spirit, they’re using the boxes to plant 120 Christmas trees this Feministmas! Each box will contain a grow-your-own Christmas tree (which will reach maturity in 2028), some self-care treats, and a gender-neutral toilet sign, as part of Dream Nails’ commitment to make gig venues safer. Featuring many more goodies, the full contents of the Feministmas box are a closely-guarded secret until fans open them on the day of the show.
The name ‘Feministmas’ originates from an annual DIY gig Dream Nails used to put on in East London, which has previously featured bands including Big Joanie and Screaming Toenail. Live during the show, Dream Nails will be auctioning the last remaining copy of their limited run of 30 ‘Vagina Police’ vinyl to raise funds for Abortion Support Network.
To coincide with this announcement, and in-keeping with Feministmas’ ethos, Dream Nails are highlighting their latest single ‘DIY’ with its accompanying music video. ‘DIY’ is Dream Nails’ punk anthem about being self-sufficient under capitalist patriarchy and it appears on their recently released self-titled debut album.

Born Arthur Benjamin Sugarman, he began his career making shirts for other designers. It wasn’t very long before his creative flair took over and he started designing his own shirts. By 1963 Ben Sherman was ready to launch his clothing line. For over fifty-six years the iconic Ben Sherman shirt and brand has been adopted by almost every seminal youth culture and style movement, it is still revered and worn by the style leaders of today.
Now a global lifestyle brand Ben Sherman and the original Oxford shirt remains a modern icon, there is simply nothing quite like an original Ben Sherman shirt.
