One of the biggest innovators in commercial dance music since 1990, musical genius Liam Howlett and his colleagues were at the forefront of the rave explosion ('Experience'), early techno/trance/dance crossovers ('Jilted Generation') and rap/punk,techno fusion ('Fat Of the Land'). The Prodigy always cut a solitary path through the noise-scapes of electronic dance music, releasing epoch defining studio albums and delivering unforgettable live performances that have taken electronic beats into unchartered territories. Throughout this time they remained resolutely focused on their own vision, inspiring legions of artists along the way. Frontman, Keith Flint, sadly died in March 2019 at the age of 49.

The Black Keys
The Black Keys are an alternative rock duo from that Mecca of weirdness, Akron Ohio. Dan Auerbach (guitar/vocals) and Patrick Carney (drums) mix nearby Detroit punk rock with not-as-near North Mississippi juke-joint rollickingness to produce startlingly raw slabs of music that challenge the ears and pummel the psyche.

One of rock’s most enduring, beloved and successful bands of all time. The success of 1977's Rumours album established them as a legendary phenomenon with one of the biggest-selling albums ever made.

While they have not released a new album since 2003's Say You Will, they 'don't stop' wowing crowds with their live shows.

Land of the Giants
Since 2009, Land of the Giants have been pulling crowds to tents to groove until they sweat with their foot-stomping beats and contagious enthusiasm. A brass section that will make you grin from ear to ear, heavy toe-tapping basslines and Andy Quick’s sensuous, soaring vocals will make you wonder why you’ve never danced your ass off to The Giants before. At the end of 2015, the Plymouth-based boys brought a brand new, funk-inspired EP to the table in the name of “Surrender”. A collection of high-energy summer sounds, with just a lick of calypso, that absolutely demand to be blasted out those boomboxes at full volume. The last three years have seen The Giants unrelentingly tour the length and breadth of the UK, spreading their fresh and accessible sounds to venues and festivals alike. From packed out stages at Glastonbury, Boomtown and Beautiful Days to rocking venues from Ireland to India; LOTG are well on their way to global domination. Fresh additions to the lineup have already proven themselves beyond worth, pumping out fat new tunes and reworking previous arrangements to blow even existing fans minds. The six-piece collective scooped Best Band in the most recent Southwest Music Awards and have been tipped by many as one of the best emerging live bands in the country. So put your hands up, surrender, and get those dancing shoes on.
