Beans On Toast
Jess Morgan + Benjamin Folke Thomas
Cult folk legend Beans on Toast is coming to town to promote his new album A Bird in The Hand and he’s bringing a full band with him. His 10th studio album, out 1 December, was produced by Mumford & Sons’ Ben Lovett at the legendary Church Studios (Bob Dylan/Radiohead/Adele) and is quite possibly his finest, most accomplished work to date.
Tickets are nearly sold out, so act fast to get one before they go.
This extensive UK tour will see the unique live performer, on stage in his element playing songs from the new record alongside crowd favourites from his varied and extensive back catalogue. Over the course of his huge career Beans has become something of a cult national treasure. What seemed like a throwaway festival act has evolved into something much more important, a voice of truth and honesty, cutting through the bullshit. A consistent and reliable modern-day troubadour, not afraid to speak his mind; always touring, always writing, recording and releasing music. Playing every festival under the sun and always, always, telling it like it is.
Support comes from the gutsy modern folk songwriter Jess Morgan and Swedish fingerpicking legend Benjamin Folke Thomas.

Priestgate + The Feens
Since forming SIGHTMARES mid 2018; Bryn (bass/vocals), Hugo (guitar) and Ryan (drums)’s sole focus has been writing and performing down-to-earth music.

Having released their recent debut & self titled EP alongside a repertoire of original tracks for the collectively disillusioned – their message is simple, ‘Rock and Fucking Roll.’
Forming in April of 2018, PRIESTGATE soon made a name for themselves with their own brand of warm jangly indie and infamous live shows. Releasing there debut single ‘Skism’ in early October in great response been featured on BBC Humberside, shortly after in novemeber they made there first ‘this feeling’ appearance. this young band certainly have a lot more to offer

Pink Handkerchiefs Label Takeover
Live music from
An Orange Conspiracy
Wild Fruit Art Collective + Foolish Atoms
Unassuming Perth siblings AN ORANGE CONSPIRACY’s brand of immersive grunge / psyche / blues. has led to comparisons with mainstream crossovers Black Keys and Nirvana. Listener-friendly dystopian angst, confessional and observational tales of hopelessness layered on hope.
Liverpool outliers the WILD FRUIT ART COLLECTIVE are a ragtag gang of musicians delivering their musical bile with a precise quantity of the unplanned and unexpected.
“Their Live Show is tremendous… by all accounts masterful” – The Quietus
“Wild Fruit Art Collective are a loose, musically anarchic band from Liverpool playing dark, slightly chaotic music. The band fill the venue they play with all encompassing sound. It is an immersive experience” – Louder Than War
Hull based FOOLISH ATOMS dreams up droning acoustic swamps in his sleep. Creating music so delusional and pain numbing, audiences peacefully drown in the sweet rustic guitar tones and his strained vocals.
Pink Handkerchiefs is a collective who love music with a passion. They have a vision to give artists a platform to express themselves and succeed – and share their discoveries with you. PHP events are carefully crafted by hand picking, bribing, and sometimes begging favourite performers, exhibitors, film makers, and artists to come do what they do best

+ Reardon Love
Fantastic hooks and melodies, a staggering live show and a healthy dose of organised chaos gives you just a glimpse into the world of REDFACES.
RedFaces are a gang of lifelong friends from Sheffield who have immersed themselves in the classics, drawing influence from the ’60s, the ’90s and occasionally the noughties – they are quickly winning fans, friends and plaudits across the UK and becoming one of the most talked about unsigned bands in the country.
RedFaces are (and always will be) indie rock n roll.
“Another brilliant band from Sheffield” – Huw Stephens
“These are songs built to stand out on large festival stages” – Gigslutz
“Fuzzed out psychedelia matched to crunching rock riffs, the faint traces of Britpop in RedFaces’ sound makes for something extremely addictive” – Clash
Doors 8 pm
Huw Stephens of Radio 1 said “Ming City Rockers are the best rock ‘n’ roll band ever to come out of Immingham” and he could well be right.
There’s 4 of them. They listen to Stooges, Eddie Cochran, Gene Vincent and nothing else. They like 3 chords. 2 they like better.
What’s wrong with this world can be put right with Ming City Rockers.
It’s a revolution, it’s a revultion of what we’ve become , it’s all it takes to make things right.
Ming City Rockers Riot Rock Ruination.
