This year we’ve got an absolute stellar lineup full of fantastic up and coming Reading/Berkshire acts!


The Shelf Side – Berkshire’s premium rock ‘n’ roll function/wedding band. Rock ‘n’ roll classics from the 50’s to the present day!


Crystal Balloon – This is the Balloon’s third year here and can’t wait to see them again. Expect brilliant alt rock/americana at it’s very best!


Origami Heart – Origami Heart are a 5 piece alternative rock band originating from Farnborough, Hampshire. Just brought out a new fantastic EP entitled ‘Jester Amongst The Fools’.


JC Fenton – 4 piece indie rock band from Berkshire. Anthemic tunes, 3 part harmonies & a big sound.


Tape it Shut – This is Tape it Shut’s second time at Jimstock. Looking forward to some more classic pop punk!


Mosaic – Equally inspired by The Wombats, Franz Ferdinand, Bloc Party and The 1975, South England uni mates Mosaic, mix poppy guitar lines with the joys of youth


Oubliettes – From the Berkshire area Oubliettes are a contemporary group with folk, rock and jazz influences. They play a mixture of original songs and covers.


Gary Millard – He’s a weird one. Folking weird! A blend of acoustic rock and classic folk with a drunken twist.


Harry JonesĀ  – Replacing Nicky Booty who’s had to pull out, Harry Jones is a local Reading acoustic artist. Heard lots of good things. Check out his facebook page:


Iago – Looking to see these guys in action. The Shelf Side’s bassist Alex Clarke’s original pop fusion act. He get’s the pleasure of opening and closing the festival!
