Screech Bats — facebook.com/ScreechBats
“…we were knocked out by their fierce sound, hook-laden songwriting and baaad attitude. They played a searing session for us which sent social media wild and gained them new fans and assured them a place in our hearts forever” – Melita Dennett, BBC Introducing South
Lexi Clark and Kit Reeve from successful Surrey quartet, Hearts Under Fire, formed Screech Bats in the summer of 2015. Initially considered to be a ‘side project’ with pals Rio Hellyer and Esme Baker, Screech Bats quickly grew into something much more.

Man the Lifeboats play raucous, upbeat folk music, for those who like a drink with their tunes.
This London four-piece use an array of instruments to craft songs with big choruses that tell stories.
Formed in the wake of a blistering Skinny Lister gig back in 2016, Harvey, Rich, Sam and Dan have taken their shared love of straight-up lyrics, pounding bass-lines, lilting mandolin and fiddle melodies and stomping beats and have created a sound that would not be out of place at a party at the end of the world.

Tim Muddiman & The Strange — facebook.com/timmuddimanandthestrange
Tim Muddiman is a multi Instrumentalist, long time member of The Gary Numan band and the brains behind his own creative project “The Strange”
Fiercely independent in a world where commercialism and the mainstream dictate fortune Tim is soon to release his second album called Domino Blitz funded by the growing platform of Pledge Music.
Between an extensive touring schedule with Gary Numan, Tim and his band are playing shows in the UK in February 2018 and more later in the year globally.
Domino Blitz has been described as Alternative Indie Blues and the songs tell stories of profound romance with a twist and historic tales with a modern angst.
Clown Smash Everything — facebook.com/ClownSmashEverything
ClownSmashEverything is a 4-piece post-hardcore/punk band from Norwich, UK.
While the ethos, delivery, and energy of the band are rooted in hardcore, the hooks are sharp, and the grooves are slab-heavy.
ClownSmashEverything's debut album, released 1st Dec 2017, ‘The Bombs Are Getting Closer…’ is 10 tracks of relentless energy; a lean 30 minutes of angular and acerbic post-punk with flashes of Pumpkins-esque melody. The lyrics spit razor-sharp comments on post-millennial life and personal conflict, uniquely delivered with vitriol and pitch-black humour.
Expect a visceral live show.
