Headliners

Catfish and the Bottlemen

Catfish and the Bottlemen appearing at this event

One of the most exciting guitar bands to burst through in the UK in recent times, Catfish and the Bottlemen formed in 2007 in North Wales. Their debut album, The Balcony, reached number 10 in the UK Albums Chart and they won their first Brit Award for British Breakthrough act in February 2016. This was followed by the release of their second album, The Ride, in May 2016. Since then the band have shown no signs of slowing with numerous tours and festival headlining slots under their belts, with third album, The Balance, being released in April 2019.

George Ezra

George Ezra appearing at this event

Young singer/songwriter folk-blues balladeer George Ezra first came to attention when BBC Introducing in his adopted home of Bristol picked up on a handful of tracks posted online. That led to a live session at the legendary Maida Vale studios and an oversubscribed performance on their stage at the 2013 Glastonbury Festival. The singer/songwriter possesses a deep, resonant, and emotionally weathered voice that belies his considerable youth. Influenced by similarly precocious troubadours like Dylan and Hank Williams, Ezra was just 19 when he issued his debut single 'Budapest', a warm, amiable, and soulful slice of classy folk-pop that invoked names like Willy Mason, Ben Howard, Ray Lamontagne and Tom Odell.
