Lily Allen

Lily Allen appearing at this event

For a London girl who kick-started her career on the now almost forgotten social networking site myspace, Lily Allen became a sensation. Her cheeky songs, down-to-earth lyrics and dramatic sense of fashion soon saw her climb out of Internet-based cultdom into mainstream commercial success, emerging with her iconic debut No 1 single ‘Smile’. Her 2006 debut album 'Alright, Still' combined pure pop with ska, reggae and hip hop influences and to date has sold over 2.5 million copies worldwide. Her follow-up 'It's Not Me, It's You' took in electropop, country and even jazz, scoring memorable hits including 'Not Fair' and the no.1 single 'The Fear'. Allen then took a music hiatus, launching her own clothes shop and raising a family, before returning to music with third album 'Sheezus', taking her in a more R&B and urban direction, and the critically acclaimed fourth album 'Shame' which earned her a Mercury nomination.

The Black Keys

The Black Keys appearing at this event

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.

Mogwai appearing at this event

Glasgow's critically acclaimed post-rock band, led by Stuart Braithwaite. Loved by the late John Peel, Mogwai put an emphasis on epic big scale music with an orchestral feel. Rich and luscious in its atmosphere and texture, here's a group that really will take you on a trip to somewhere else. Who needs vocals when instrumentals can be this powerful?

Royksopp appearing at this event

Norweigan electronica outfit whose enormously successful Melody A.M. album (released in 2002) introduced us to their brand of luscious, chilled upbeat ambience with deep, dubby beats and enormous electronic soundscapes. Stunning.

Alison Moyet

Alison Moyet appearing at this event

Following her mainstream 80's chart success, Alison Moyet felt somewhat shackled by the demands of major record labels and finally decided to go her own way, releasing exactly the material she wanted and setting her own agenda. Her determination paid off and she released new albums through independent label Cooking Vinyl, yet still maintaining album chart success. Moyet's music now harks back to her electronic roots, taking a nod to her former Yazoo days, whilst still maintaining a fresh and contemporary sound.

Ibibio Sound Machine

Ibibio Sound Machine appearing at this event

Fronted by London-born Nigerian singer Eno Williams, Ibibio Sound Machine is a clash of African and electronic elements inspired in equal measure by the golden era of West-African funk and disco and modern post-punk and electro. Weird and wonderful folk stories, recounted to Eno by her family as a child in her mother's Ibibio tongue, form the creative fabric from which the band's unique musical tapestry is woven. Evocative Nigerian poetic imagery set against an edgy Afro-Electro soundscape by producers Max Grunhard, Leon Brichard and Benji Bouton give the band a unique space within the current wave of modern Afrocentric sounds sweeping across the globe.

Editors appearing at this event

Marrying dark angular rock with a sharp pop sense, English band Editors emerged in the early 2000s as part of the post-punk revival that also included contemporaries Interpol, White Lies, and the Cinematics. Following their 2005 debut, The Back Room, they scored a pair of U.K. chart-toppers, including In This Light and on This Evening, which found the band incorporating more synth pop elements. They furthered that digital push on 2015's In Dream, before striking a balance between rock and electronic with 2018's Violence.

Crystal Fighters

Crystal Fighters appearing at this event

Combining Basque folk instruments with drum loops, heavy synths, and lilting vocals, Spain's Crystal Fighters formed after singer Laure Stockley recovered a diary of her deceased reclusive grandfather's while visiting his Basque country home. Inside his notebook was the skeleton of an incomplete opera, with what would become the future band's name as its title. Intent on completing the work and honoring her grandfather's legacy, she returned to London and enlisted the aid of friends Gilbert Vierich, Graham Dickson, Sebastian Pringle and Mimi Borelli, and together they worked to finish his opera. Along the way, they became inspired by the dark, folksy sounds of the Spanish instruments and, combining them with booming basslines, the band was born.
