Cosmic Ninja are pushing boundaries with their unique and fresh blend of rock electronica. The band is on a genre bending mis sion, fusing catchy melodies, massive riffs, dance breaks and synth mayhem that demands your attention. With their diverse sound, high energy levels and a dynamic stage presence, Cosmic Ninja delivers memorable tracks and feel good performances across intimate venues and festival stages alike. Inspired by acts such as Pendulum, Muse, The Prodigy and Chvrches, their versatile catalogue of material works well on any alternative, popular rock and live electronic/dance line ups. Cosmic Ninja was born out of their mutual love, and desire to combine the best elements of electronic and rock music, harness ing the positive energy and emotion present in both genres to create an original and varied sound. After playing in rock bands through the years they were brought together by a passion to push boundaries in how they write music, overcoming previous limitations and encouraging each other to draw on the diverse and eclectic range of influences they all have, with as little restrictions as possible. Creating something different and unique is really important to them, it is the challenge of this fusion that is the driving force behind the band. Cosmic Ninja is a project where you can experiment and break the mould. The band have been appeared on BBC Introducing in the West and made several festival appearances in the summer, they are set to release their debut EP in early 2017. www.facebook.com/cosmicninjaband www.youtube.com/channel/UCdaDtk-G9vusoXMsp8uDvlA soundcloud.com/cosmicninjaband

Blending hectic electronic instrumentation with hard-hitting guitar riffs, Cardiff's electro punks, Nightlives, have quickly cemented themselves as part of the UK rock music scene. Turning heads with their explosive live shows and an enormous sound that eclipses the small club stages they have frequented, the band have recently shared the stage with heavyweights such as Holding Absence, Dream State, VUKOVI and more.

Dead Audio Saints
Bolstering gritty garage punk rock vibes with contemporary loops, Dead Audio Saints have already been revered by BBC Introducing as a bright hope for the future. Blurring standard genre lines with an explosive live show many a hardcore band would be proud of, Dead Audio Saints are brutally honest.
