Tarantula - www.facebook.com/TarantulaEurope
Hailing straight from the boot of Italy, Tarantula is a Mediterranean Gypsy-Folk band that brings "Taranta", the traditional music of Salento to the British music scene. 5 energetic musicians who come from different corners of the world including Italy and Switzerland who share their diverse musical influences with captivating circus performances exclusive for their upcoming album entitled "Rogue Rouge Circus", containing 9 singles. Each song is an episode of an intriguing and provocative story about all the mysteries, relationships and adventures behind the circus curtains.
You’ll hear authentic tambourine rhythms grooving with enchanting whistles and violins, reminiscent of the circus, the sea, the tradition, the legend and the mysticism belonging to "brown skin people" of the Mediterranean lands.
San Blas - www.facebook.com/sanblasmusic
Transforming the traditional tones of the ukulele and infusing it with the energy of British rock, it has taken over 6 years to develop a concept first thought of under a palm tree whilst watching a hut burn down. Now releasing their debut EP, San Blas would like to take you for a drive, a dance, and to reminisce about the colourful moments in life as they attempt something genuinely new with the little island instrument.

Alt-Indie-Rock. Bengal Lancers write music about those nights out that you never remember and the days you'll never forget.
RIPLEY - www.facebook.com/ripleybanduk
We are a three piece indie/punk trio from Tring, Hertfordshire; inspired by the likes of Red Hot Chili Peppers, Slavesand Queens of the Stone Age. Our live performances are packed with energy and boldness.
Katie MF - www.facebook.com/KMFLDN
Katie MF has been described as "the female Frank Turner I didn't know I needed in my life". Combining that folk-punk energy with the visceral guitars of The Clash and the observational lyrics of Conor Oberst, Katie and her band have a fast-growing reputation for must-see live shows that will take you to surprising places.
She sings about things that matter - society, the human condition, love, loss and the misdemeanours of certain politicians. Foot-stomping rhythms, catchy melodies and lyrics that make you think, laugh, then think some more - Katie has a unique, wry, warm approach.
Or, in the words of one recent convert: "Definitely worth the six quid".
