Featuring

Frank Turner

Frank Turner appearing at this event

Former singer for hardcore outfit Million Dead turned folk troubadour, Frank Turner has seen his fame flourish through, essentially, the old fashioned route - hard work, continuous gigging and word of mouth. His singer-songwriter solo career steadily grew from cult status to an arena filler, eventually playing London's O2 and Wembley Stadium. It has been an eventful decade for the troubadour from Winchester who now resides in Holloway, North London. Turner released his debut album, “Sleep is For The Week”, in 2007 and has been on a stunning upward curve ever since. He is now one of the country’s most cherished songwriters, a man who plays the biggest venues in the land and whose records reach the higher echelons of the charts but who has never lost sight of his original MO: write, record, tour, repeat. His blend of folk-punk-rock and powerful lyrics has seen him continue playing to an already devoted fanbase, but he picks up new fans with every festival appearance and tour.

Beans on Toast

Beans on Toast appearing at this event

He’s a hippy, a punk, a poet, a drunk, a die-hard romantic and an eternal optimist. Singing simple songs that tackle big issues: Political protest songs for the modern day, honest and open Love songs. Songs that will make you laugh, but also make you think with no holds barred honest lyrics and quick wit.

Holy Moly & The Crackers

Holy Moly & The Crackers appearing at this event

Holy Moly & The Crackers make riotous party music for the masses. Their upcoming third album, ‘Take A Bite’ (released April 5th 2019 on the band’s own Pink Lane Records), is concise, passionate take on folk, blues and indie rock. The sound of a band who have been searching and experimenting for several years; arriving at a place where they can say “this who we are and this is where we want to go”.

Seán McGowan

Seán McGowan appearing at this event

Raised on a diet of The Clash, The Jam, Specials, Billy Bragg and other such politically-charged, punk-ignited British pop, Southampton-born troubadour Seán McGowan had been playing up and down the UK for over five years, and DIY released two EPs (given away/sold on a “pay what you want” basis at shows), before catching the ears of the music industry at 2013’s Great Escape festival. An appearance on Billy Bragg’s Left Field stage at Glastonbury that year saw Seán exposed to his biggest audience yet, and he went on to tour and play shows with artists like Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly, The Rifles, Beans On Toast and Frank Turner. His debut album 'Son of the Smith' eventually followed in 2018 to great acclaim.
