Also on the main stage

Apollo Junction: are a melodic Leeds/ London based band that were formed in 2012 by former band rivals with the intention of forming a ‘super group’ to write & perform electro, Indie, guitar inspired songs infused with tuneful melodies that everyone can dance to.

They have released their new single ‘Blood on Hands’ which has been getting quite a bit of airplay and hailed by Radio 2’s Graham Norton “These Guys are handsome and their music is Tremendous”
Stop Drop Robot: are a four piece electronic alternative group, soon to drop an EP, the boys are preparing to flood the music scene with their Orgasm inducing tunes. Their music is a hard –hitting conglomeration of Indie rock, maybe with a hint of heavy rock bringing samples and synth sounds to cover the tasty cake of rock with robotic sounding Icing & a sprinkle of eerie yet hypnotic vocals.

Alvaraz Kings: story starts from their humble South Yorkshire roots, the bands popularity would see them sell out hometown shows. Their breakthrough single ‘No Resolve’ was named single of the year by BBC Radio Sheffield also gaining local awards for best band & best Ep....not to be missed.
