Time Artist About The Artist Music Style Links
13:30 - 14:10 The Flaming Keys The Flaming Keys are a Oxfordshire 5-piece guitar band, playing the best Indie & Rock covers from the 90’s & 00’s. Their show brings in some of your old favourites, and delivers some surprises along the way too. They love to play live and will rock every venue they play! Pop / Rock
14:25 - 15:05 Steve Winch and The Inception Steve Winch & The Inception are a retro-tinged, high-octane shot of adrenaline inspired by mod fashion, punk attitude & 1960s melody. A powerful combination of crunch, punch & killer tunes in the tradition of The Jam, The Stranglers, Elvis Costello. Debut album "Down At The Soul Dispensary" is available now on digital platforms and on vinyl. These boys are truly at home both on the stage and in the studio. Pop / Rock
15:20 - 16:00 Cutwater Classic line-up of electric guitars, bass and drums playing original songs with influences ranging from shuffling 70s boogie, through Americana and to country rock. Cutwater is a band who loves the sound of their instruments: the Gibson 335 through the Lazy J, the vintage Tele through a Cornell, The '82 Precision Bass through an Ampeg, the Ludwig drums. Playing together in a room, when recording, using minimal overdubs and striving to capture the sound they make, Cutwater thrives on what happens when they play together: the intuitive performance that creates the alchemy of harmonics and overtones with which the songs are adorned. Have a listen. Indie
16:15 - 17:00 Wilswood Buoys Wilswood buoys Josh and Joe are an acoustic duo from Mersea Island who formed in summer 2017, starting out as just a couple of mates having a jam things quickly turned into writing music. Both of the 'buoys' had a completely different upbringing in terms of musical styles. This led them down a path of intertwining many genres into one, to form a raw and fresh alt / folk island sound, with catchy riffs and big choruses. Folk
17:15 - 18:00 Nineteenth Hour Influenced by Nothing But Thieves, Oasis, Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes and Arctic Monkeys, Nineteenth Hour combine nuanced guitar layers and calescent vocals to build tension and elation. Expect to hear songs of heartache, heart breaks and headaches! Pop / Rock
18:15 - 19:00 Red Hot Chili Peppers Experience With more than 100 gigs in the bag since their debut at BrightFest in 2015, the band pays tribute to the Red Hot Chili Peppers, the world's ultimate funk rock quartet. As the UK’s Funky Monks with their love of that instantly recognisable RHCP sound, they provide a unique and high energy live music experience. They have performed at festivals with 1,000s of spectators across the country and even travelled to Bahrain in the Middle East to play in front of an audience of 6,000 expats. Funk / Alt-Rock
19:15 - 20:00 San Raquel Punk with funk twist. Punk / Funk
20:15 - 21:00 Grohlercoaster Grohlercoaster will take you on a trip down memory lane blistering through Dave Grohl’s impressive back catalogue including songs from Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stone Age, Tenacious D - faithfully mastering those signature sounds and grooves. Rock
21:15 - 22:00 The Steve Summers Band Steve Summers Band plays Blues-Rock music “out of the top drawer”. Formed in 2010, the band has released 2 critically acclaimed albums, 2012’s Looking Back, Moving On, and more recently Rainmaker. Blues
