Headliners

James

James appearing at this event

Champions of the Madchester era, and famous for anthems such as Sit Down and She's A Star, James are one of the classic bands of the British music scene. They reformed in 2007 after a five year hiatus and have continued going strong ever since. In fact, James are now better than ever. You won't want to sit down to their anthems, they deserve a standing ovation.

Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds

Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds appearing at this event

Needing no introduction, Noel is best known as the guitarist, occasional singer and songwriting backbone of Oasis. Since Oasis split, Noel has carved out a successful solo career under the guise of the High Flying Birds, taking the name from the song 'High Flying Bird' by Jefferson Airplane and as a homage to Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac. Noel released a highly successful debut eponymous album in 2011 which became the second biggest-selling rock album of that year in the UK, just behind Coldplay's 'Mylo Xyloto'. Several critics felt it was his best work since '(What's The Story) Morning Glory?' His second release, 'Chasing Yesterday' in 2015, reached no.1 on the UK album chart and the success story contined with 2017's 3rd album 'Who Built The Moon?', also reaching no.1.

Leftfield

Leftfield appearing at this event

Spinning deep roots and dark drum'n'bass, fusing organic sounds and music technology to create a unique vibe, Neil Barnes and Paul Daley led the dance music charge of the early '90s. Since 2010, Barnes has toured and recorded under the moniker Leftfield without the involvement of Daley. Their major breakthrough came with the single 'Open Up' featuring PiL's John Lydon on vocals, followed by the 1995 Mercury Music Prize nominated album 'Leftism'. The UK no.1 album 'Rhythm And Stealth' followed in '99, then after a lengthy hiatus, 2015 finally brought third album 'Alternative Light Source', as Leftfield continues to produce some of the most vibrant and innovative electronic music around.
