INSTILL, the band that doesn’t fit…

Once described by KERRANG as a band with no genre, pretty much sums INSTILL up. A band that don’t fit into any Rock, Metal or Alternative bracket, and never will. Have you ever heard a band write a song about a Chainsaw Accident or riding Pedalos and make it work with the whole crowd singing?

Since their early formation in 2005 rehearing relentlessly in an Army Barracks and since touring all over the UK several times with the like of Thunder, Skindred, Hayseed Dixie and (Hed)pe, even as support to Radio 1’s Huw Stephens! INSTILL continue to define themselves as one of the strongest and fun live acts around.

After some time out 2016 sees the band back on stage, fresh from the release of ‘Live at SW19’...

Ferocious Dog confirmed to headline 2016

Ferocious Dog

Ferocious Dog offer a full-on six-piece sound that encompasses folk infused with rock, reggae and Celtic vibrations. The combination of instruments creates a palette of sound that offers infinite variations: going in hard to get people up and moving, or slipping into melodic passages and dub-like fusions.

With their unique, aggressive yet feel-good music they tear up venues across the country often bringing their faithful Hell Hounds along for the ride.

Having played on the same billing as the Levellers, Oysterband and Wonderstuff, Ferocious Dog are carrying on the tradition of folk rock the way it was meant to be done.

For many years Ferocious Dog have appeared at small venues and pubs, until in 2009 where the band were given the opportunity to play at Bearded Theory Festival, they w...
