7.00pm The New Twenty’s
The New Twentys are an independent band from London who write, record and produce all their music themselves. This real-talk, infectious song-writing is delivered with passion from start to finish. Undeniably catchy and downright likeable from the get-go, the uplifting vocal harmonies are built upon the festival-worthy foundations, weaving intricate guitar work and bass licks.
7.50pm Vega Rally
Solo artist Vega Rally is a multi instrumentalist/Producer who merges the beats and energy of electronic dance music with the guitar and vocal melodies of the 90s indie greats. Having signed to independent Manchester based label Spirit of Spike Island records in 2021, he has gone on to play at the Isle of Wight Festival as well as numerous U.K. tours. With a debut EP vinyl release due this summer, it is clear this is just the beginning for this young multi faceted artist.
8.35pm Emma and the Fragments
Emma and the Fragments are a dynamic indie rock band hailing from the vibrant music scene of East London. They create a sound that’s both powerful and nuanced, blending elements of indie rock, punk, and pop to create something truly special – this was recognised in 2021 when the band won the WigWam Radio Best Indie Rock Act Award against fierce competition.
9.20pm Born Healer
Born Healer are based in south west London. Helen Turner and Iain Black are both past British Blues Award nominees, and had an album voted one of the top albums of 2013 by Classic Rock: The Blues magazine. Marek Funkas is an in-demand London musician who has played major venues with top international touring artists, and performs and records with Polish band Laba. Steve Weaver, based in West Sussex, has toured nationally as drummer in original, tribute and function bands, plays congas in electric duo Tote Perello, and is lead singer in AC/DC tribute band, Bad Boy Boogie!
Niches is a young, exciting female-fronted band from Brighton. This fresh driven quartet writes fun, captivating music. Within a short time, Niches has already played the stages of the O2 Academy Islington, The Dublin Castle, The Brunswick, The Hope and Ruin and countless more! Playing shows ranging from striped back acoustic sets to full on bells and whistles performances. Also with airtime on BBC Sussex, Surrey and RadioReverb.
11.00pm Cameron Hayes
British artist Cameron Hayes is not your average pop singer/songwriter. At only 22, but with the ferocity and confidence of someone twice her age, she expertly crafts genre-crossing dark and brooding music that exists entirely on a plane of its own.
With writing and performing having always been a passion, Cameron has been working on perfecting her new live set up now that gigging has eventually returned. Incorporating guitar, keys and loops, she’s debuted at prestigious venues such as Notting Hill Arts Club and The Bedford in Balham, with her most recent performance supporting the incredible Upsahl in London.
Cameron Hayes is at the beginning of a thrilling career. A bold young voice to be heard and a veritable force to be reckoned with, hers is a name you’ll be hearing more about!
