+ Askers Dodge
Giant Peach are a four-piece indie band from Brighton. Meeting at Sussex University through various music projects, they formed Giant Peach earlier this year, exploring sounds that merge psychedelic grooves over canorous melodies and tightly packed harmonies, creating an indie-pop blend of fuzz-driven guitars and levitating 80s synths. They released their debut single ‘Melatonin’ in June via Beth Shalom Records. In October 2018, they were shortlisted out of 600 applicants for the Firestone Road to the MainStage competition. “As a unit, Giant Peach are incredibly tight live. They all stand out very well as individuals and work seamlessly as a team. They don’t focus on stage antics and don’t exchange much with the crowd. They let the music speak for itself… Giant Peach are very much a band worth your attention and worth getting excited about.” Brightons Finest
Klae are a female fronted five piece band hailing from Brighton. Consisting of driven riffs and thrashing guitars one moment and atmospheric soundscapes the next, Klae effortlessly combine harmonising styles to provide a gritty edge to their catchy pop melodies.
Askers Dodge is a blistering indie 4 piece international band based in Berlin, kindling shades of Queens of the Stone Age, Arctic Monkeys and Black Sabbath. Shows are frequent and energetic, full of witty lyrics, thick guitar, and emotional theatre. All held up by a dancey rhythmic engine room which is capable of turning every night into a Saturday night. Be careful that their retro daydreams don’t turn you into the screaming teenagers of the 50’s. The group have a history on the local Berlin rock scene, a favourite of the concert series Basement Bash, they’ve played notable shows all over the city. Now their sights are set higher with new music releases planned.

+ Ryan Weeks
To celebrate Ronnie’s debut single release, Ronnie has asked a few very talented friends to join her for a gig which celebrates the release of her first single ‘Loving You’. A night of pop, soul and a little rock n roll – you are guaranteed a great start to the weekend.
Drawing influence from neo-soul, jazz and pop – Ronnie blends melismatic melodies with dreamy chords progressions to tell stories of love and personal growth. After graduating from the Brit School in 2015, Ronnie moved from her home town of North London to Brighton where she has developed her songwriting and now has a talented group of musicians to play alongside her.
Sugar Town, taking influence from bands such as the Beach Boys and the Beatles, use soaring melodies and three part harmony combined with contemporary guitar and songwriting to create their sound.
A fun and lighthearted energy sure to get you up and dancing like you’re back in the swinging 60’s.
After buying his first guitar at 21, Ryan Weeks hasn’t stopped playing gigs up and down Kent and Sussex with headline shows and multiple BBC Kent appearances under his belt. Taking influence from Otis Redding, James Taylor with a touch of The Hives and indie rock mixed in for good measure.

First or last, somewhere you’ve ashed the cigarette that’s gonna take you down.
cleopatrick are a heavy alt-rock duo from the tiny town of Cobourg, Ontario – yup, the ‘c’ is lowercase.
Best friends since the first day of kindergarten, frontman Luke Gruntz and drummer Ian Fraser translate their lifelong connection into a powerful unification of sound. With a bastardized bass amp and split signal, Gruntz simultaneously commands the range of bass and guitar topped with provocative blues grooves and take-down breakdowns.
In early 2016, the pair recorded their first EP 14 in its entirety in a single studio session and was later dubbed one of the most promising acts of 2017 by 94.9 The Rock’s “Generation Next”. Now piling all of the torment and rhetoric that comes with chasing big ideas within the limits of a small town, cleopatrick is on a mission to reverse the stigma against modern rock bands, backed by the style, sound, and stats to prove it.
Upon releasing “hometown”, the first single off their upcoming sophomore EP the boys, cleopatrick amassed over 7 million Spotify streams in 6 months and have been featured on the front cover of “Rock This”, the world’s largest rock playlist. Now in the global spotlight, the band is hitting the road with one and only one message: fuck whatever you think rock is.
Quote from Luke:
50 years ago, the term “Rock” was a frenzied, varying, and passionate kind of music that carried honest messages to its audiences by whatever means necessary — Rock was for people that had something to say.
In 2018, it’s really obvious that somewhere along the line, the term really lost its meaning. Every time someone refers to cleopatrick as a “Rock” band, it sounds immediately nostalgic, unsurprising, and passé.
That really pisses us off. There’s nothing more discouraging than being put in a box…all because you’re holding a Les Paul. That’s why we admire hip hop so deeply – because in so many ways it truly is the new rock. It’s constantly evolving, it’s raw, aggressive, and pure. It’s everything rock used to be.
So in our juvenile frustration, we bluntly say: fuck whatever you think rock is, because we’re about to change it all. Us and anyone who wants to come along, that is.
The band’s latest single, “youth”, was released worldwide June 29 in anticipation of a full summer/fall touring schedule across Canada, UK, and USA.

‘The Luck’ is the London-born brother and sister duo of Max & Esmay Luck. Their music is influenced by childhood heroes Fleetwood Mac, The Cranberries, Tom Petty and The Eagles. The band began touring the U.K. and Europe before setting off for the US to develop their sound in California, playing iconic venues such as ‘The Troubadour’ in LA. Paul Broucke, President of Music at Warner Brothers Pictures, was in the audience at one of their shows and shortly after approached to work with them to produce their debut album. Together in LA the album was recorded, collaborating with three-time Grammy Award-winning engineer/mixer Ed Cherney (The Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, Bonnie Raitt) and three-time Grammy Award winning musician/engineer/mixer Paul Hicks to mix the tracks.
The Luck’s songs have been featured on U.K. television shows such as ‘Country File’ and ‘Hollyoaks’ as well as gaining radio play in the US and Europe. Their song ‘Muscles and Bones’, also won a first place prize in the Nashville-based International Songwriting Competition.
The band are now back in London, hosting the California-inspired monthly Americana club night ‘Ventura Nights’ in Soho whilst preparing to release their debut album to the world. The Luck are playing various festivals this summer including Chagstock, Cambridge Folk Festival, CarFest South, Folk on the Dock in Liverpool and have been chosen by the AMA UK to perform on their stage at The Long Road in September. With over two million Spotify streams they are ready to hit the UK hard!
This summer the band at festivals such as Cambridge Folk, The Long Road and Car Fest.
“Brother/sister duo Max and Esmay Luck know one another inside out. It’s this telepathic link that makes The Luck so enticing, with their crisp indie-folk soaring up to the heavens”
– CLASH MAGAZINE
“The dual singing of Max and Esmay together is meticulous and it sparkles like a Roman candle”
