Suede appearing at this event

Suede kick-started the Brit pop revolution of the '90s, bringing English indie pop/rock music away from the swirling layers of shoegazing and dance-pop fusions of Madchester, and reinstating such conventions of British pop as mystique and the three-minute single. Nearly three decades later, during which they had a 7 year hiatus, Suede are as formdiable as ever in spite of their advancing years.

Editors appearing at this event

Marrying dark angular rock with a sharp pop sense, English band Editors emerged in the early 2000s as part of the post-punk revival that also included contemporaries Interpol, White Lies, and the Cinematics. Following their 2005 debut, The Back Room, they scored a pair of U.K. chart-toppers, including In This Light and on This Evening, which found the band incorporating more synth pop elements. They furthered that digital push on 2015's In Dream, before striking a balance between rock and electronic with 2018's Violence.

The Cult

The Cult appearing at this event

A band who've truly lived up to their name with their constant esotericism, existing just outside the mainstream since the '80s, when the band was conceived as Death Cult by Ian Astbury and Billy Duffy. Their loyal following has largely been to do with the marriage of goth-rock and heavy metal, combining emotion and spirituality with complex, unpredictable and driving guitar lines.
