Two Door Cinema Club
The Irish Indie-electro-pop three-piece formed in 2007, when founding members Alex Trimble and Sam Halliday met at Bangor Grammar school and subsequently teamed up with Kevin Baird. Characterised by the band's short, sharp songs with punky overtones and indie sensibilities, the County Down boys achieved a UK no.1 album in 2012 with their 2nd release 'Beacon' on French independent label Kitsuné. Their success led them to signing with Parlophone for their 2016 3rd album 'Gameshow'. Their 4th release; 'False Alarm', follows in June 2019.

Coventry's The Specials are without doubt the definitive 2Tone band of their generation. In the late '70s and early '80s they pioneered the new British ska sound and racked up seven Top 10 hits whilst exerting an influence on the fledgling genre that is beyond measure. The band reformed to celebrate their 30th anniversary in 2009 and have since travelled all over the world and sold out hundreds of concerts.

Rising from the ashes of Joy Division, the enigmatic New Order triumphed over tragedy to emerge as one of the most influential and acclaimed bands of all time. While their debut album Movement (1981) was shadowed by the legacy of Joy Division, going forward the band combined their original post-punk sound with influences from New York’s club scene. The result was Power, Corruption & Lies (1983), released on Factory Records. From this album came the single “Blue Monday”, which has since become the best-selling 12-inch single of all time. They went on to release a string of albums; Low-Life (1985), Brotherhood (1986) Substance (1987) and Technique (1989). Republic (1993) Get Ready (2001) and Waiting for the Sirens’ Call (2005) before Peter Hook’s departure in 2007. In 2015, the band released their critically acclaimed album Music Complete, reaching #2 in the UK album chart. The album's title seems to shine a hue on New Order's new manifesto: new line-up, newly eclectic sound, reinvigorated in their fourth decade as a unit. New Order performed as part of Manchester International Festival 2017 for a series of unique shows in collaboration with Liam Gillick. These shows were such a success, they were taken to Turin and Vienna in May 2018 to further great acclaim.
