Main Stage

Friday

Unknown Era

Reggae, Hiphop, Ska, Balkan, Blues, Funk & More!
Music for Misfits, the forgotten, the misunderstood. High energy music to dance and rebel to. We believe in freedom of expression.

Def Goldblum

Not even a little bit Indie Pop. Very metal, very rap. Def Goldblum have made history in that they have achieved the otherwise inconceivable and never-before attempted fusion of hip-hop and rock. They’re just that good.

Pretty Babs

Rising from the ashes of the band ‘The Local Folk’, Sam, Liam and Brad went through a series of practices and name changes before settling on ‘Pretty Babs’ (a reference to Liam’s dad, whose nickname is for some reason Babs’). Rhythm guitarist Craig joined in April to add a fuller, crisper sound; just in time for the sell-out launch of our debut album ‘Graffiti Lights’, recorded at The Lofthouse in Nottingham and produced by Phil Taylor and Luca Martello.

Del Scott Miller

Del Scott Miller is a guitarist, songwriter, poet and writer from Barnsley, South Yorkshire. A mainstay of political events and fundraisers, he has most recently shared a stage with socialist poet laureate Matt Abbott and Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell.

Jess Silk

Jess Silk is a singer songwriter from Dudley who has been penning songs since her early teens. A guitarist, singer and songwriter from the Black Country. Her shouty but melodic brand of folk/punk music often has her being likened to a female Frank Turner or Billy Bragg, and it gets people sitting up and listening. Armed only with an increasingly sticker-covered acoustic guitar and a distinctive, gravely voice that many don’t expect, Jess plays to audiences up and down the country and has shared stages with many well known names among the folk/punk scene.

Saturday

Doggen All Stars

Tony “Doggen” Foster is a musician and recording artist.

Seas of Mirth

Nautical rockers Seas Of Mirth have been causing quite the ruckus at shows and festivals across UK and Europe for the last five years or so. A nine-strong crew with a varying sound, their new album “Hark, The Headland Approacheth” is out this summer on Nottingham’s I’m Not From London label. Think folk instrumentation, prog-rock silliness, worldly rhythms and bizarre sea-based song concepts. Seas of Mirth have played Glastonbury Festival, Secret Garden Party, Boomtown Fair, the main stage at Beat Herder Festival, Bearded Theory, Alchemy Festival, Edinburgh Fringe and a barrel-full of other summer shindigs.

Fahran

Fahran are: Matt Black, Jake Graham, Joshua Ballantyne, Chris Byrne, JR Fahran. They have appeared at prestigious festivals including, Bloodstock, Download Festival, Hard Rock Hell, Isle of Mann TT races and toured with Heaven’s Basement, Kamelot, The Answer, UFO and many more. With 2 successful albums, this is a band that has worked for all they have achieved, leaving them with a seasoned gravitas. Fahran continue to forge a sound far greater than the sum of their parts that is redolent of no one and is entirely their own.

Rise of the Tomahawk

British Indie Band from Newark/Nottm. Members: Gary Bullet, Bobby Peters, Tommo, Mick and Wako. RISE OF THE TOMAHAWK Nottingham’s premiere originals mod band – playing their unique brand of 60s inspired songs which take you back to a sunny bank holiday weekend, sat astride your vintage scooter behind a spread of chrome mirrors, surrounded by a swarm of fishtail parkas. If you could bottle a summers day it would come in a Rise of the Tomahawk shaped bottle.

Superhooch

Are a psychedelic rock n’ roll band from Coventry, U.K. We like fuzz, feedback and beefy riffs.

Clonk 

We’re a band from Nottingham in the UK.

Alex Bradford

Alex Bradford is 13 yrs old. He is singer songwritter.

Holly Fallon

Her vocal style sits in between the typically impossible to toe line of unapologetic attitude and a sweet personality. Which makes it all too easy to want to lose yourself in the narrative which she is painting with her sensual, striking vocals. Along with carrying some Rock sensibilities through the use of acoustic instrument arrangements, the electronic effects allowed Blonde to the flirt with Hip Hop, and that’s a mash up I can guarantee you’ll want to hear.

Sunday

Transglobal Underground

Transglobal Underground goes for a highly adventurous and quirky blend of club and world music on the rhythmic Rejoice, Rejoice. Underground has a very East-meets-West outlook — dance music, reggae, electronica, funk, and hip-hop are combined with elements of Indian, Middle Eastern, and African music. Synthesizers and keyboards are prominent, but the high-tech element is combined with everything from Indian tabla drums and sitar to the saz, a string instrument associated with traditional Turkish music.

Flat Cap Carnival

Flatcap Carnival are a Latin-infused Skanival band from York. Dancing is compulsory.
Created in late 2016, Flatcap Carnival was spawned from the minds of lead singer, Lee Richardson and trumpeter, George Green, who wanted to create a new style of Ska and Latin music to get people dancing. After hearing such bands as The Cat Empire from Australia and Hoffmaestro from Sweden, Flatcap Carnival aspires to be the UK’s answer to those up-beat bands. Since its creation, Flatcap Carnival has played alongside and supported many great artists, such as: Too Many ZoosHot 8 Brass BandElvana and many others.

CHAI

Nottingham based funk, soul, jazz band. Ayup!

The Amber Herd

The amber herd are a different category from the norm, blending folk, rock, indie & post-punk a hint of prog and a liberal scattering of psychedelic lucidity they produce a wall of sound with great passion and an eye for drama.

Talking to Frank

Three Piece Alternative Rock band from Arnold, Nottingham. In it for the live music, obviously. The band is made up of Joe Davies on lead vocals and guitar singing in an unmistakable Notts accent. His older brother, Sam Davies, a self taught, uniquely styled drummer who backs up vocals to. Sam Murden looks after bass duties and band security (we think).

Major Oak Chorus

The Major Oak Chorus is an A Capella male chorus. We are members of the British Association of Barbershop Singers. Based in Nottingham, we are comprised of around 50 ordinary men from all walks of life who are united in our love of music and singing.
