16:00 - Bad Grammar

Slack syntax and gargantuan riffs unite in Manchester’s riff rock duo, Bad Grammar. Following in the footsteps of their northern pioneers before them, Bad Grammar channel the same grunge snarls as Pulled Apart By Horses & Drenge.

Recent EP ‘Forced Fun’ fell into the hands of party punk king Andrew WK, who selected the band to perform as part of 2014’s Y Not Festival. With lead single ‘Temper Temper’ clocking over 25,000 Vevo views, it’s not surprising the pair have already picked up coverage from XFM, 6Music and Radio 1, along with recent new music features in NME, Clash and Artrocker.

18:00 - FlashFires

Friends from school, FlashFires have a unique bond that shines through in their song writing and their live shows. Despite only just being out of their teens, they are writing tunes that their older peers can only dream of, a bold statement perhaps, but one that is fully justified. Sitting somewhere on the indie/rock spectrum, their own self-proclaimed brand of Fire Indie Disco, FlashFires are here to have a good time and everyone is invited.

19:00 - The Push

The Push is the collective work of producers Elliot Harrison and Richard Tugwell. The duo focus on making bass driven breaks that span a mixture of genres from booty shaking breaks to Drum and Bass.

With the recent success of their new garage single ‘I just Don’t’ and breakbeat remixes of B.E’s ‘Naked’ as well as their jungle remix of Freestylers album title track ‘The Coming Storm’, ‘The Push’ are starting to make their mark on the scene.

Having focused for the past few years on delivering an action packed live show with a full band and live vocals from their resident vocalists Verushka George and MC Delzie. The Push are now hard at work in the studio, creating a stream of new releases for 2015.

20:00 - Sister Gracie

Sister Gracie is the electronic project of musician/ producer Max Walker. Rough Trade Records described the sound as "The perfect blend of whirring synths, funk rhythms, hand claps and super catchy melodies come together to create the perfect backdrop for Walker's unique and rich baritone vocal reminiscent of Ian Curtis or Scott Walker."

An interesting and eventful act who should not be missed.

21:00 - Vienna Ditto
Vienna Ditto got together at the beginning of 2009, bonded by a love of dirty Chicago blues, dark psychedelia and the BBC Radiophonic Workshop. A hastily-recorded demo from their second rehearsal was picked by Linda Serck on BBC Berks and ended up being played on Huw Stephen’s Radio One show, earning the band an appearance on the BBC Introducing stage at Glastonbury 2009 (the band’s second ever gig). They have since been given a Maida Vale session for Tom Robinson on BBC6, and have appeared on Channel 4’s excruciating Hollyoaks Music Show.
