Riff-heavy alt-rock duo Mike Kerr and Ben Thatcher are Royal Blood from Brighton. Their explosive guitar and drums sound has inevitably likened them to the White Stripes, along with Queens of the Stone Age. The boys have picked up a slew of awards, perhaps most notably winning 'Best British Group' at the 2015 Brit Awards, along with winning both 'Best Live Act' from Q Magazine and 'Best Live Band' from the NME.

With no hype machine, no radio play and no record label backing, Gerry Cinnamon has achieved record breaking success and cemented his status as Scotland’s most successful independent artist.

Unsigned and unmatched in his ability to operate outside of the mainstream Gerry has become a cult hero and force to be reckoned with.

Very little has stood in the way of young North Shields artist Sam Fender and his rapid ascent since 2018. Having toured the UK and Europe relentlessly, building himself a loyal, passionate army of fans, Sam writes honestly and candidly about subjects of social and generational significance, broadly drawn from his experiences growing up in the North East of England. Sam wraps his pertinent words in rousing, propulsive, arena-sized guitar anthems and delivers them directly with a cavernous, powerful vocal.
