- LAUNDROMAT -
"He’s cracked the ability to get a laid-back riff stuck in your head" DORK

Brighton’s Tony Hayes AKA Laundromat first came to people's attention as the singer of Meet me in St. Louis. Laundromat is a very different beast - Fuzzy, yet relaxed vocals, unrelenting rhythms coupled with repetitive guitar riffs provide a slow, simple hook.

- THE LOUNGE SOCIETY -
"Yorkshire teens making political punk for the dancefloor" NME

Speedy Wunderground (Black Midi, Squid, Georgia) signed The Lounge Society are much hyped and channeling their rural circumstance into impulsive, energetic punk. A band that are worthy of the hype!

- YOUTH SECTOR -
" Youth Sector bringing a revamped and refreshing sound along with them." THE LINE OF BEST FIT

Previous Jack Saunders Next Wave Radio1 spotlight art-rock quintet Youth Sector join the bill. Taking inspiration from late 70s/80s-era funk, most notably in the joyful interaction of the guitars and the bass, you will move your feet.

- NICOLE ALLAN -

Country and blues inspired performer Nicole Allan.

- TAMARA -
“Armed with a voice that would make angels and demons weep” - NIGHTSHIFT

Tamara wailed as a child. Luckily this soon turned into singing, although at times she can still be heard wailing in her songs (or when she laughs). Tamara writes songs that make you feel something.

Tamara also fronts baroque-pop group 'Death of the Maiden', and is 1/3 of sea shanty folk outfit 'The Jolly Grogsters'. She is also the Creative Director of 'All Tamara’s Parties'.

- THE AMAZING TIGER BAND -

Anarchic and exhilarating, The Amazing Tiger Band are a whirlwind of loops, samples and lyrics that you simply won’t believe are coming from just one man. But they are. Packing witty and unconventional lyrics and mixing punk, hip hop and indie, The Amazing Tiger Band show flashes of Gorillaz, Jimi Hendrix and Scroobius Pip, sometimes all at the same time.

- THE PINK DIAMOND REVUE -

Reading duo infuse film soundtracks and sampladelic acid house.
