Odyssey

Odyssey's UK top 10 classic hits include "Native New Yorker", "Use It Up And Wear It Out", "Looking For A Way Out", "Inside Out" and "Going Back To My Roots" as well as the rare groove soul anthem "Don't Tell Me Tell Her". Their fusion of soul, pop, dance, jazz, funk and latin-caribbean rhythms continue to make them popular around the world. In the great tradition that has made them famous, Odyssey's new releases carry their classic sound forward as "old school meets new school meets old school".

808 State

808 State appearing at this event

Manchester's legendary dance outfit and bringers of ambient techno to the early 90s masses, the 808 boys are still an integral part of the UK dance scene today. If you want further proof, how many other dance outfits have a back catalogue of seminal tunes that include Pacific, In Yer Face, The Only Rhyme That Bytes, Lopez and Cubik

Dawn Penn

Dawn Penn gave the reggae world a pleasant surprise when she returned to the charts in the early 1990s with a dancehall-influenced remake of her signature song "You Don't Love Me (No, No, No)" and continues to perform live today.

Too Many T's

Too Many T's appearing at this event

A unique funky style of full fat beats, stirred in with two heaps of sugary fresh raps, comical swagger and the distinct fragrance of golden era hip hop. And your favourite biscuit too.

Senser

Senser appearing at this event

Senser (fronted by co-vocalists Heitham Al-Sayed and Kerstin Haigh) have been a force to be reckoned with ever since their debut album 'Stacked Up' crashed into the UK Charts at number 4, giving the band a platinum selling smash in 1995. With cover features in NME and Melody Maker, and a touring schedule that saw them hit the road with the likes of Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rage Against The Machine, The Levellers, Tool and Moby - not to mention SIX slots at Glastonbury - the band soon honed and sharpened their live assault and song writing chops and are back on the road again with new material.

The Members

The Members appearing at this event

Formed in 1977 The Members are not a hardcore band - they play UK 1977 style punk, post punk and Reggae and they were one of the first punk groups to successfully incorporate Reggae into their set. Their biggest hit, the million selling, 'Sound of the Suburbs', has appeared on TV commercials and movies all over the world and is an instantly recognisable punk anthem. Their single 'Offshore Banking Business' is as pertinent today as it was 30 years ago.

The Final Clause Of Tacitus

The Final Clause Of Tacitus appearing at this event

The Final Clause Of Tacitus are another great band to come off the conveyor belt of the Berkshire metal scene that has produced bands such as Sylosis and Exit Ten in the past. Offering a blend of rap, funk and metal, The Final Clause Of Tacitus have got a lot to say for themselves. They proudly wear their influences, such as Rage Against The Machine and Red Hot Chili Peppers, on their sleeve, combining elements of multiple sounds into something fresh and relevant.
