Confirmed acts so far include:

The Shapes

www.shapesoxford.co.uk

The Shapes have recorded a number of albums and EPs and have played at practically every music venue in Oxford and county including the prestigious Common People, Truck festival (2013,2014 and 2015… and 2016) and the annual Kid’s are alright charity event (2013,2014,2015 and 2016). Each of the band members brings a wealth of experience in folk, country, rock, soul and pop bands but now concentrate on the unique upbeat indie sound that has received wide acclaim in the media. Often compared to REM, Crowded House, the Shapes like to surprise with their eclectic range of hummable songs which tell stories of lives dedicated to good music


Beware this Boy

www.bewarethisboy.co.uk

Beware This Boy made its first appearance in Oxford in January 2014. The band consists:

· Stewart Manley - drums, vocals

· Sue Mallett - Fiddle

· Chris Pritchard - bass guitar, vocals

· Simon Meakin - guitar and vocals

The set list consists of all original music, written in the last four years. The music being likened to a mixture of 'Fairport convention' and the 'Clash'

'It is obvious that Beware This Boy love to play live - their sets are full of energy and commitment.' a promoter recently concluding - 'It is great to see a band that is truly original and that really means it!'

Beware this Boy released their first album in 2016 and since then released two singles


Peerless Pirates

www.peerlesspirates.com

Peerless Pirates hail from middle England – the pastures of Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Berkshire serving as their stamping ground.

Their sound is a rollicking, roustabout mix of classic 80s energetic indie, sea shanties, rockabilly, surf-rock and spaghetti western soundtracks. “Rum-soaked fun” is a phrase often – and justifiably – bandied about. If you’ve forgotten the time when indie sounded fun, here’s your chance to get re-acquainted.
