Catfish and the Bottlemen

Catfish and the Bottlemen appearing at this event

One of the most exciting guitar bands to burst through in the UK in recent times, Catfish and the Bottlemen formed in 2007 in North Wales. Their debut album, The Balcony, reached number 10 in the UK Albums Chart and they won their first Brit Award for British Breakthrough act in February 2016. This was followed by the release of their second album, The Ride, in May 2016. Since then the band have shown no signs of slowing with numerous tours and festival headlining slots under their belts, with third album, The Balance, being released in April 2019.

Run DMC

Run DMC appearing at this event

From Hollis, New York, Run DMC are the fathers of hip hop and the biggest wearers of Adidas! They came to worldwide notoriety in 1986 with their hip hop and metal crossover, teaming up with Aerosmith on 'Walk This Way'. They also scored their first UK no.1 in 1998 when teaming up with Jason Nevins for the smash hit 'It's Like That'. Eminem inducted them into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, making them only the second hip hop group in history to do so (the first being Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five).

The Libertines

The Libertines appearing at this event

In the early Noughties, you could not escape the sight or sounds of these infectious modern-day punks. Whether dancing at Indie clubs, reading the NME or tuning into Radio 1, The Libertines were everywhere. Top 20 hits like 'Time For Heroes' and 'Can't Stand Me Now' were on heavy rotation and they gained a somewhat obsessive fan base. But after just two short 'n' sweet albums (2002's 'Up The Bracket' and 2004's eponymous 'The Libertines', both produced by The Clash's Mick Jones) it was all over. So what became of the likely lads? Personal problems and battling demons saw Peter Doherty and Carl Barat split up and go their seperate ways with various solo projects and forming new bands. But time is a great healer and they patched up their differences to reform in 2010.
