Info provided by the Event Organiser
Flutatious are a feisty, celtic, psy-folk band. In demand on the festival circuit they have gained a reputation for dragging folk music into the 21st century. Blending soaring melodic flute, flying fiddle, Hawkwind guitars and groovy beats, this band's unique style defies any standard definition.
Flutatious tour dates
The original all-female rockers still on the road, now celebrating their 30th anniversary with three original members on board - Enid Williams rejoins Kim McAuliffe and Denise Dufort, with Jackie Chambers completing the quartet.
Girlschool tour dates
Originally formed by Robert Calvert and Dave Brock (of Hawkwind) from the ashes of The Sonic Assassins in 1978, The Hawklords re-emerged in 2009 with a memorial concert in London for legendary British artist, the late Barney Bubbles, graphic designer for many of Hawkwind's early 1970s albums.
The band's critically acclaimed 2015 album release, 'R:Evolution' reached number 15 on the Official UK Top 30 Progressive Rock Chart and was in the top 75 for over 2 months. A “Full-blown sonic slab of classic British space-rock”, it has been nominated for best rock album of 2015 by One World Music Awards.

Hawklords tour dates
Centered around the creative powerhouse of Steve Hillage and Miquette Giraudy, this group has been making superbly uplifting psychedelic techno and ambient music since their inception in 1990. Collaborations include The Orb and Eat Static and they are also one of the few techno groups to widely embrace the sound of the good old GEETAR.
Their live show is Floydesque in its scope complete with lights, strobes, and backdrops - but no flying beds or pigs. Essentially deep and stimulating psychedelic party music, for those who know how to have a good time.
System 7 tour dates
The Little Big Band are a bunch of musicians from Harlow who knew each other, and played together, before they met John Otway - they have been playing with him since the early '90s. The Big Band are Richard Holgarth (lead guitar), Seymour (bass guitar), Murray Torkildsen (guitar, songwriter), Adam Batterbee (drums).
John Otway & The Little Big Band tour dates
Sonic terrorists of the Hawkwind persuasion but heavier and harder. Powerful bass, layers of psych rock guitars and plenty of space noise of course.
Pre-Med tour dates
Biker-style 60s and 70s heavy rock boogie and blues rock from one of the hardest touring metal bands around.
Dumpy's Rusty Nuts tour dates
