Gorilla Tactic Productions

Back by popular demand, this DJ collective plays all your favourite dance tunes including a seventies vibe to celebrate the festival’s 40 years.



Brought together by a love of the classic Britpop anthem, The Shout are an awesomely talented set of musicians who are filling a 90s shape hole in the local music scene. The Shout will have any venue singing massive Britpop crowd pleasing tunes.


The Raggedy Men play classic punk rock from 1976-79… done different. Although an ‘acoustic’ band, they have all of the energy and vitality that gave the scene its style and verve. Don’t expect punk rock as you knew it, these are songs that people know and love. Songs made famous by The Stranglers, The Clash, Sex Pistols, Ramones, Ian Dury, Tenpole Tudor, The Ruts and many more. Songs that have survived over 40 years – as relevant now as they were in their heyday – delivered with energy, by a band that ‘play ‘em because they love ‘em’.

1...2....3....4.....hey ho, lets go!



What do you get if you cross two music loving, primary teaching, singer songwriting music lovers? Rocktopus!

An interactive, live music experience for children which will entertain, educate and inspire.

There’s no bland in this band - quality tunes to be enjoyed by adults and children alike.

Rocktopus formed in 2015 when Andy Hawkings and Tom Veck discovered their shared passion for rock music, performance, teaching and songwriting with children.

Tom and Andy knew that children deserved more than just sickly sweet nursery rhymes - children deserved to be able to ROCK OUT!
