Founded by then-Pixies bassist Kim Deal in the late '80s, along with Tanya Donnelly from Throwing Muses, American alt-rock band The Breeders signed to the 4AD label and in 1990 released their debut album, 'Pod'.
Following Tanya's departure, the new line-up of Kim, her sister Kelley, Josephine Wiggs and Jim Macpherson went on to worldwide success with the 1993 single 'Cannonball' and accompanying album 'Last Splash'. This classic line-up returned to touring in 2013 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the release of 'Last Splash', playing together again for the first time since 1994.
The Breeders tour dates
Formed in the 1980's by Kristin Hersh and her half-sister Tanya Donnelly, Throwing Muses became the first American band to be signed to the 4AD label in 1986. Probably their best-known album, The Real Ramona was released in 1991, spawning two minor hit singles, Counting Backwards and Not Too Soon, which characterised their moody, acoustic-ambient sound. Shortly afterwards Tanya left to join The Breeders and then Belly, but Kristin continues the Muses with her new line-up.
Throwing Muses tour dates
Bon Iver is the stage name of Wisconsin singer-songwriter Justin Vernon, formerly of Mount Vernon and DeYarmond Edison fame.
Vernon released Bon Iver's debut album, For Emma, Forever Ago independently in July 2007, the majority of which was recorded while Vernon spent three months in a cabin in northwestern Wisconsin.
Bon Iver won the 2012 Grammy Award for Best New Artist and Best Alternative Music Album for their album Bon Iver, Bon Iver.
Bon Iver tour dates
A trailblazer in the Bristol trip-hop scene of the early 1990s, Tricky helped define 'The Bristol Sound'. His seminal album 'Maxinquaye' was a critical and commercial success, ranked number 1 on NME & Melody Maker's Top Albums of 1995 and shortlisted for the 1995 Mercury Prize. In addition, it was placed highly in Q's 100 Greatest British albums, Mojo's 100 Modern Classics and Rolling Stone's Essential Recordings of the '90s, amongst others. Tricky would later go on to collaborate with musical dignitaries such as Bjork, PJ Harvey, Mos Def, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Tool, Grace Jones and Yoko Ono and is now one of the most wanted men in music. Innovative, eclectic and much in demand!
Tricky tour dates
Foals formed in Oxford in 2005. The band's musical influences are varied, with members citing minimal techno, Arthur Russell, the Irish based math rock band The Redneck Manifesto, Krautrock bands such as Harmonia, and Talking Heads as their main sources of inspiration. Their musical style, however, can be more directly linked to various genres such as math rock, indie Rock or New rave.
After forming in 2005, Foals quickly made a name for themselves as one of the hottest live bands in the UK. With debut album Antidotes incurring chaotic living room gigs, follow-up Total Life Forever saw the band exploring a heavier sound, and stadiums beckoned by the time the critically-acclaimed album Holy Fire arrived in 2013.
Their most recent body of work, 2015’s What Went Down, has only served to cement the band’s reputation as a force to be reckoned with. Routinely earning five star reviews and accolades for their live shows, Foals were named as Best Live Act by Q in 2013, then, simply, Best Act In The World 2015.
Foals tour dates
Since they burst onto the music scene in 1990, the alt-rockers from Bellshill have made a huge impact on music with their Byrds-esque guitars and harmony vocals. Although pigeonholed as an alternative band, they are known for incorporating a wide variety of elements from various music styles in their songs.
Teenage Fanclub tour dates
Holy F*ck started with a simple concept, to mimic modern, electronic music without using modern fail-safes like laptops and programmed backing tracks so they armed themselves with a drum set, a bass guitar, a myriad of toy keyboards, guitar peddles, mixers and even a 35mm film synchronizer and hit the stage. NME named them as one of their top three performances when they appeared at Glastonbury.
Holy F*** tour dates
Kimya Dawson is an American singer-songwriter and a prominent part of the anti-folk movement. Dawson first came to prominence as the female counterpart to Adam Green in the band The Moldy Peaches.

Dawson has appearing on songs by Ben Kweller, They Might Be Giants, The Mountain Goats,Third Eye Blind and Regina Spektor collaborated with Dawson on the song 'Fire' on the Hidden Vagenda album.

Pit Er Pat tour dates
Deerhunter, from Atlanta, Georgia, make music which, although electro to the core, is a darker, sleazier version of the genre, borrowing influences from rock, industrial, psyche and punk, for a live act that is truly mesmerising.
Deerhunter tour dates
One of the most radically inventive of the original New Wave bands, Gang Of Four were formed in 1977 by four Leeds University students. They quickly began marking out a territory of their own, fusing politics, musical experimentation and sheer rock 'n' roll energy. The band split in 1982, but have been reforming ever since. Their shows are always popular, both with fans who saw them the first time round, and with a new audience attracted by the huge number of bands the Gang have influenced.
Gang Of Four tour dates
Shellac Of North America are an alternative rock band, fronted by legendary indie-rock producer Steve Albini, with Bob Weston and Todd Trainer.
Shellac tour dates
This San Diego- raised, LA-based quartet play a refreshingly stripped-down, revved-up, no-frills brand of raucous rock and roll.
The Soft Pack tour dates
Brazilian band CSS were one of the first groups to make weird, lof-fi electro cool. Their energetic live shows, off-the wall dress sense and the sheer presence of lead singer LoveFoxxx, have all added up to make them one of the hottest bands on the planet. Singles include Off The Hook, Music Is My Hot Hot Sex and Let's Make Love And Listen To Death From Above.
CSS tour dates
A hard-biting, roach-sucking pack of drop-outs who claim to be the world’s greatest rock'n'roll band. Formed in 1988, SuperSuckers have been at the centre of the crossover between rock and country music having worked with everyone from Willie Nelson to The Ramones. "If you've ever had the chance to experience the SuperSuckers live, you'll know the energy and sweat this band produces...' (Hybrid)
Supersuckers tour dates
Multi-instrumentalist performer and composer. Yann is the mastermind behind the soundtracks for the acclaimed movies Goodbye Lenin and Amelie. A massive star in his native France, Yann's live shows are electrifying as he leaps from instrument to instrument playing violin, accordion, piano and others more unusual - often playing more than one at a time.
Yann Tiersen tour dates
