Heaven 17

Heaven 17 appearing at this event

The brainchild of Martyn Ware and born from the collapse of the original Human League, 80's synth pioneers Heaven 17 have stood the test of time and been an influence on the future of modern music for over thirty years. Their debut 1981 album, 'Penthouse And Pavement', was, and remains, a modern classic. Glenn Gregory and Martyn continue to perform the hits from their overwhelming back catalogue, including 'Temptation' and '(We Don’t Need This) Fascist Groove Thang', along with unveiling their newer material.

Scritti Politti

Scritti Politti appearing at this event

The band that started life as a Sex Pistols-inspired punk act, and quickly morphed into a mainstream synth-pop duo under the same name. Green Gartside is the man behind Scritti Politti, who later took the name into the realms of hiphop, working with rapper Mos Def among others. Although their success can mainly be noted in the 1980s, Scritti Politti are now performing once again, for the first time since the early '90s.
