Underground dance master who stunned the UK garage scene with his debut album 'Boy In Da Corner' in 2003 which warped the sound into something dark, disturbing and deliciously innovative. Considered the most popular and influential Grime artist in the world, and also recognised as an innovator with his production style, Dizzee continues to innovate and surprise.
Dizzee Rascal tour dates
London Indie four-piece named after a (now defunct) chain of Indian restaurants, Bombay Bicycle Club have spiced up the music scene since their arrival in 2005. Their profile and success has grown with every release, notching up three top 10 albums including 2014's no.1 'So Long, See You Tomorrow'. The boys were also chosen to play at the BT London Live concert in Hyde Park at the end of the 2012 London Olympics. They are full proof that Indie guitar bands are not over yet and are still very much hot (Bombay) potatoes.
Bombay Bicycle Club tour dates
British punk-rock band making hardcore screamo and punk-led noise. Fans of Bullet For My Valentine, As I Lay Dying and Senses Fail are sure to enjoy, as will anyone who likes their music hard, fast and passionate as hell.
Line-up: Wade MacNeil (vocals), Laurent Barnard (guitars/keys/vocals), Stu Gili-Ross (bass), Lee Barratt (drums)
Gallows tour dates
'Perfectly formed pop' (Bugbear). A band who manage to do something new with the rock sound. Their music is unusual and boundary pushing, but luckily they have the technical prowess to pull it off, sometimes mastering kitchen utensils as well as more standard instruments.
Mystery Jets tour dates
From their initial somewhat shambolic goth-garage-punk beginnings, covering Screaming Lord Sutch's 'Jack The Ripper' and having an admiration for The Sonics, Faris Badwan and friends have matured considerably over the course of their career, becoming a respected name and stadium-level stars. Their dark gothic sounds now lean more towards Nick Cave and Joy Division than their original garage-rock roots.
The not-so-difficult second album 'Primary Colours' was awarded NME's best album of 2009 and received a Mercury Prize nomination, while 2011's 'Skying' and 2014's 'Luminous' both met with great critical acclaim, the latter entering the UK Official Album Chart at no.6. while 2017 sees the release of 'V', their 5th album.
The Horrors tour dates
Brighton's Maccabees have gone from strength to strength since the release of their debut top 30 album 'Colour It In' in 2007. Their brand of slightly off-kilter British art-rock has seen them compared to the likes of Wire, Blur, Magazine, Futureheads and XTC. Their frenzied live shows have generated stage invasions and riotous crowds buzzing to the sounds of already classic anthems like 'About Your Dress' and 'Toothpaste Kisses'. After 14 years together, in 2016 the guys announced they had decided to call it a day, and will play their farewell shows in 2017.
