Here's our Line-Up:
JUDAS are a four piece indie rock band hailing from all corners of the UK, based in London. The band have been together for around two years and have accomplished much in this time; releasing their self titled EP, performing at major festivals including Isle of Wight, Kendal Calling, Sound City, Y Not, Truck Festival, Tramlines and have even performed on the Main Stage at Leeds festival 2016. Furthermore they have played at many nationally renowned venues such as KOKO, Wolverhampton Civic Hall, Islington Assembly Hall and the Cavern. Alongside this JUDAS have many live performances up and down the country under their belt, including a live set on Soccer AM last year with Circa Waves. Furthermore the band have had numerous airplays on BBC introducing and XFM, as well as performing live for BBC introducing.
Organically formed, South Coast Band, Wild Front, aim to pair the unrestrained emotions of music with the capricious nature of life. It came as no surprise when the band formed, as the four boys had been musically working together for years.
Although 80’s rock and alternative indie is a love they all share, their primary musical influences are so different. Jack offers his love of folk and Josh studied classical music at university, whereas Mike and Joe’s musical repertoire ranges from West Coast hip hop to indie folk. It’s this exotic mix that creates their unique and distinctive sound.
Paves are a four piece rock 'n' roll band based in London. In the space of just under two years they have gone from playing small pubs in the east end to stages at some of the biggest festivals in the UK.
2016 Saw Paves play: 3 stages at Isle of Wight Festival, Leeds Festival, Y Not? Festival, Tramlines, Hackney Wonderland, Victorious Festival & Wilkestock to name a few. They've spent any time in between touring every corner of the UK.
FRED PERRY SUBCULTURE - "One of the most exciting new bands"
CLASH - "Wah-wah flavoured guitar matched to some scorching vocals"
A modern take on a classic sound, The Second Sons draw their influences from one of the greatest eras in rock 'n’ roll, blues, soul, R&B and country, the Sons have learnt from the best of the best; the Rolling Stones, Faces, Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett, Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, Little Walter, B.B King and others whose music stands the test of time and plays on.
The Second Sons had a great summer festival season with performances at both the Isle of Wight Festival 2016 and Gibraltar Music Festival amongst others. They released their much-anticipated debut single "Best Of Me" featuring the late but never forgotten Bobby Keys in September. In November, The Sons joined the legendary Chris Kimsey at Eastcote Studios to record "Can’t You See" and "Ain’t it a Shame". They’ll be back in the studio in the New Year to produce a new album.
