Never miss another 'The Bronze Medal' show
Formed after a 6 week back-packing trip through Southern Europe and Scandinavia during the summer of 2009 - vocalists Chris Hillier and Robin Southwell funded their way round by busking. Describing themselves as a ‘loud folk enthused rock band, without a lot of drones and emphasis on vocal harmonies’, Hillier and Southwell's harmonies craft The Bronze Medal's sound and help drive the tracks beautifully. Consistently warm guitar sounds and textures also contribute to their signature ‘slow indie build’ - echoing shades of Explosions In The Sky colliding with the melancholic melodies of Death Cab For Cutie.

The Minke Whales are a five-piece based in Bristol. Wrapped up in sweet melodies, dark lyrics and so much banjo laden stomping stompingness that when live and loud they seem to have recklessly formed the habit of encouraging even the most wizened gig scrooge to throw caution and beer to the wind and behave like they were at a village hoedown.

Like all the interesting things in life, The Cadbury Sisters come with a secret – their great great grandfather was William Cadbury, the man behind the world famous chocolate company. Jessica (vocals and percussion), Mary (vocals and electric guitar) and Lucy Cadbury (vocals and acoustic guitar) are his direct descendants and yes, they are all sisters. Their goal is simple; to take the spirit of traditional English Folk music, infuse its DNA with contemporary influences such as Bat For Lashes, Daughter and First Aid Kit before disseminating it into the world.
