The Hillbilly Troupe are a band that spans five generations, which encompasses many genres from these periods and more.
A blend of Trad. Folk, Irish, Ska and Punk with a strong sense of history and tradition.
Serial Chiller have a DIY attitude that resonates through the pencil-scratched, paint-splatted artwork, through to the no-messing song writing. If you doused Pavement and Parquet Courts in paint stripper, peel away the remains, you’d find something a little like these guys. With short catchy riffs and cutting lyrics, Serial Chiller have created their own brand of slacker punk.
Taking their name from a Kings of Leon B-side ‘Frontier City’, indie rock lads Fronteers have truly been making a name for themselves over the past few years.

Describing their sound as ‘honey-dipped rock & roll’, the band are looking to bring old and new school together. They promise to deliver original, well thought riffs and thundering drum beats, that can only be labeled as the ‘Black Lime’ sound.
Unique, soulful and northerly vocals drench stories with alluring melodies and bring to life the underbelly of his native Yorkshire. ‘Elwhaeko’ is the solo project of singer / songwriter, Lee Atkinson (formerly Making Dens / JSMG). A modern take on folk and indie guitar music, the hooks are classic and the words offbeat, woven into intricate, beautiful and original melodies.
Waste of Paint
The subtle sound of brilliance.
The Quicksilver Kings
Original 60’s inspired country blues-pop, fronted by singer, songwriter and poet, Keith Hagger. After appearing on Channel 4’s The Secret Millionaire in 2009, Keith cut his first demos at the Warren and went on to play the main stage at Freedom Festival.

The Froot ’67

The band are racking up an impressive list of support slots in their home county and have so far played with the likes of Black Honey, The Mirror Trap, Dinosaur Pile-Up, Heck and Clean Cut Kid; a list that’s almost as varied as their own many-faceted influences. Citing the likes of Nirvana, The Pixies, Kendrick Lamar, Reggie Snow, Deap Valley, The Smashing Pumpkins, Pulled Apart by Horses and Interpol, their taste is nothing if not eclectic. The pair are also big horror film fans which they feel is where their darker, doom-influenced material stems from.
Formed in 2012, Young Jack is a 4 piece Indie/Rock/funk band from Hull, East Yorkshire. They play an exciting upbeat style of indie pop with catchy sing along choruses, funky rhythm section and driving guitar tones.
FALSE ADVERTISING are a three-piece noise-pop trio who specialise in drenching the catchiest of hooks in the fizziest of guitar-fuzz. Fusing the best of 90’s alternative rock from both sides of the atlantic and embidying all that is still so vital about raw, energetic live music.
“Crooked Weather are out on a limb, where few bands go but Led Zeppelins, Concrete Blondes, Iron Butterflies and Newspaper taxis appear with stunning regularity. They sound interesting, pretty, intelligent, and thoughtful. Think a contemporary Incredible String Band with a 21st century mindset.” – SID GRIFFIN (Bob Dylan biographer/ The Coal Porters)
