This event has been and gone.

Shiiine On Weekender is a celebration of Indie and Dance from the late 80s, 90s and beyond. They bring you the artists that soundtracked the golden period in popular culture when clubbers and gig goers came together in what seemed like a glorious decade long party.

Over this epic three night weekender, there will also be pool parties, film screenings, amazing DJ sets and a chance to check out the best new bands on the Cooking Soup New Act Stage. Not to be missed!

Headliners

Levellers

Levellers appearing at this event

Brighton's seminal folk-rock outfit formed by Mark Chadwick and Jeremy Cunningham in the late 80s who take their name from the 17th century radical democracy movement. Over the years they've become a staple on festival bills with their crowd pleasing blend of fiddles, guitars and biting political lyrics. Their 14 top 40 singles include the perennial anthems 'One Way', 'Hope Street' and 'What A Beautiful Day', which inspired the name for their annual curated music festival; 'Beautiful Days'.

The Wonder Stuff

The Wonder Stuff appearing at this event

This West Midlands-based band gained a significant following in the late 1980s with two critically acclaimed albums, 'The Eight Legged Groove Machine' and 'Hup'. Mainstream chart success followed with their third album in 1991, which included the hits 'The Size of a Cow', and 'Dizzy' performed with Vic Reeves. The band split in 1994, but after a seven year sabbatical, they reformed and continue to play their old numbers, along with new material.

Embrace

Embrace appearing at this event

Brothers Danny and Richard McNamara, the forces behind West Yorkshire's Embrace, once achieved Indie anthems of epic Coldplay proportions (who actually supported Embrace early in their career!). From stadium classics like the top ten hits 'All You Good Good People' and 'Come Back To What You Know' to their three number one albums, sold out arena shows and well over a million album sales behind them, Embrace were on the crest of a wave when they suddenly vanished without a trace. They returned some eight years later with the eponymous 'Embrace', offering a rawer, darker sound, whilst still maintaining their signature big anthems and huge choruses and came back in 2018 with their album; 'Love Is A Basic Need'.

Fun Lovin' Criminals

Fun Lovin' Criminals appearing at this event

From the band's eponymous 'redneck hip-hop song', to the chilled vibes of Love Unlimited, this New York trio have been rollin' their own unique blend of rap, blues and rock since 1993. The addition of some tongue-in-cheek gangsta humour from frontman Huey ensures that FLC's live shows are just as memorable as their music.

Happy Mondays

Happy Mondays appearing at this event

Originally signed to the influential Manchester label Factory Records, the Happy Mondays formed in 1980 with a sound that owed as much to northern soul and funk as it did rock and psychedelia. It was, however, the influence of the house music records beaming in from Chicago that had the most profound effect on the band. In 1990 they released the 'Pills 'n' Thrills and Bellyaches' album which collided with the acid house and rave movement that had swept the UK, firmly putting The Happy Mondays on the map as one of the most inspiring bands to come out of England in the early 1990s. And 30 years on from their debut album 'Squirrel And G-Man....', Shaun, Bez and the gang continue to be 24 hour party people.

Peter Hook

Peter Hook appearing at this event

Best known as the bassist from Joy Division and New Order. Peter decided to honour the outstanding work of his first band and the undoubted genius of the late Ian Curtis by giving people the opportunity to hear past Joy Division albums performed live and in their entirety. Backed by his band The Light, Hooky first played 'Unknown Pleasures' at the Factory club in Manchester in 2010, and has continued to tour the back catalogue ever since.
