“Worth supporting if you live locally, these emerge nights” – Steve Lamacq, BBC Radio 6 Music

Anna’s Bones

“A very intriguing piece of dimly lit lo-fi crooning” – Steve Lamacq





Lost Movies

Lost Movies feature former members of long-time Essex bands Absent Kid and Warm Winters, reuniting with an expanded line-up, new songs, re-worked favourites and a darker and revitalised sound. Influences include The Cure, Manic Street Preachers and Pavement.

“Contagiously awesome stage presence and intricate tunes – not to be missed” – Underground Sound.





Anorak are a 4 piece indie band based in Cambridgeshire. At just 16 years old Susanna (lead vocals), Theo (guitar), James (bass) and Ned (drums) have taken the local music scene by storm only making their live debut in March 2022.

Collective music influences include Two Door Cinema Club, Pink Floyd, Velvet Underground and Amy Winehouse.

In just a few short months the band have already performed at some of the region’s best known outdoor events and venues including Strawberry Fair, the Big Weekend in Cambridge and the Cambridge Junction.

The bands self-produced EP titled ‘Make Up Your Mind’ has received generous support from local and international radio including the New Music Generator and Amazing Radio as well as BBC Introducing who invited the band to record a special ‘At Home’ session which was broadcast on BBC Radio Cambridgeshire.



Suns of Icarus

Suns Of Icarus are a new upcoming band on their musical voyage of discovering their sound together as a tight-knit Rock Band. Their origin goes back earlier to when the band members met listening to a variety of musical genres at college that has played an influential role in shaping their paths as musicians and ultimately led them to join forces. Suns Of Icarus are collectively finding their signature sound and will offer something different and unique to their fans by creating and sharing original music that is unmistakably thrilling.
