Reverend And The Makers – Heavyweight Champion Of The World

“This is one of the best singles of the last decade and never fails to get a crowd pogo-ing. From the opening bassline this song just drives its groove straight through you.”

The Struts – Could Have Been Me

“The first time we heard this tune we wanted to book the band. Six months later they support The Rolling Stones – enough said.”

Catfish And The Bottlemen – Fallout

“What an incredible year for CATB. Zane Lowe’s Hottest Record four times and quite rightly so. Fallout is remarkably lo fi and just underlines this bands ability to deliver incredible tunes from any mindset.”

Dodgy – Good Enough

“Can you believe Britpop is 20 years old? Good Enough still stands the test of time and just sums up what’s special about British festivals.”

Eugene McGuinness – Godiva (pictured)

“This is cool, urgent and swaggers along like Kula Shaker playing Daytripper. Eugene McGuinness is the real deal and you’re in for a treat.”

Dexters – Start To Run

“If Buzzcocks were to emerge in 2014 I’d have expected them to sound something like this. Brash, melodic and balls out rock n roll. Arguably the hardest working band in the UK.”

High Hazels – Summer Rain

“First time I was introduced to this band by Chris Hawkins I was gob smacked. With Summer Rain the band have managed to mix raw emotion with 60s summer vibes. Ones to watch.”

JAWS – Stay In

“The opening of this track just instantly grabs you and is a real statement. It reminds me of Stone Roses I Wanna Be Adored and that’s some compliment.”

Goldie Lookin’ Chain – Guns Don’t Kill People, Rappers Do

“When the band play the festival it’ll be exactly ten years since this song reached Number Three on the official charts. Love them or hate them they’ll not be too many at the festival that don’t know this tune.”

Ocean Colour Scene – Riverboat Song

“Simon and Oscar will be performing the greatest hits on the main stage and quite frankly this is their greatest hit. Timeless tune that no ones 90s would be complete without.”
