Third Lung – We are very lucky to have these guys on band. Well known in the Reading + London area. Not to be missed!


Circus 66 – Circus 66 are a rock band bursting with funk infused blues & shaken up with a dose of classic rock overtones. Looking forward to seeing these guys rock out!


Rila’s Edge – Great up and coming band from Guildford that play sounds of gritty rock and melodic psychedelia. Influences include The Cribs, Tame Impala to name a few. Check out their website below:


Iago – We had these guys on last year as the opening act. They were so good that we thought we’d get them again and have em a later slot!

Very lucky to have these guys on board. Just before they set off on their USA tour in New Orleans & Arkansas!

Check out their great website for clips – proper authentic blues!
