Headliners

The Lovely Eggs

The Lovely Eggs appearing at this event

Lancaster duo David and Holly are the Lovely Eggs. They make short, sharp punk-pop songs with sweet and sour lyrics. The strange song topics range from bikes and snails to digital accordians and watermelons. Holly was previously the lead singer for late-90's girl band Angelica, loved by Steve Lamacq, while The Lovely Eggs have found fans with 6 Music's Marc Riley, Radio 1's Huw Stephens and Art Brut's Eddie Argos. Their 'Don't Look At Me' video became a YouTube sensation thanks to a guest appearance by cult comic character John Shuttleworth, while the single 'Allergies' was produced by Gruff Rhys of the Super Furry Animals, who also made a cameo in the video.

British Sea Power

British Sea Power appearing at this event

British Sea Power are Yan, Noble Hamilton, Woody and Eamon. The band began life in Cumbria, 2001, and after a few relocations gained an enormous reputation in Brighton and then Europe, as tour supports to such greats as Interpol and The Flaming Lips. By the end of 2004, they were known worldwide, receiving acclaim as 'the best band in Britain' (Sunday Times) and attaining the Time Out award for Live Band Of The Year. It's quite remarkable that in this short time, BSP have established themselves as one of Britain's most noteworthy bands.

Honeyblood

Honeyblood appearing at this event

Originally started as a two-piece in 2012, Glaswegian Honeyblood has a sound that has been described as 'slacker-grunge-garage-rock', but founding member Stina Tweeddale prefers to call it ‘crunch-pop’. Her sound has drawn comparisons to recent favourites Best Coast and Frankie Rose, along with hints of 90s female guitar heroes the Breeders and Throwing Muses. Three albums in, Stina has decided to claim the sole spotlight of the project and said that makes sense, as Honeyblood has always been Stina's voice. Before it was even a band, or a name, Stina was writing the songs that would form the backbone of the band's identity.
