When Steve the singer out of the hardcore punk band Gout/Lager Louts became ill with throat problems he had to stop singing live. During that time Steve started making his own music from sounds he liked; tractors, angle grinders, drills and anything you can hit like barrels, buckets, scaffold tubes and diesel tanks. Once Steve’s voice improved he set about starting up a live band and was joined by guitarist Jason Sanders, and didgeridoo player Dave Croughan. The end result is a mix of hoe down punk crossed with industrial folk blues that shouldn’t work but somehow does.
Since then Jesus Hooligan have added more and more people to the band, including four extra Burrell Bashers (Adam Smith, Carol Walker, Lester Rouge and Paul Geddes), a drummer (Arup) and Rick Pistol on Darbuka. As a result of this, and their fun, energetic live performances, Jesus Hooligan continue to go from strength to strength.

Josh Island’s sound has been likened to a melting pot of John Mayer, Ben Howard, and Jason Mraz. Combining intimate singer-songwriter melodies with story-driven folk, a touch of jazz, and warm soul-blues. Josh’s debut EP ONE was released in March 2018.
We’re a new band from Essex. A mix of dark indie, shoegaze, post-punk and whatever else we decide to sound like in our new songs…

Essex based singer-songwriter/producer Josh Tom makes folk orientated indie music, that touches upon pop & rock influences.
Inspired by artists such as Bob Dylan & David Bowie, he found his love of the guitar at an early age, through none other than Guitar Hero. Deciding to ditch the controller for a real life Fender, at 15 Josh developed his craft & soon began writing his own material.
These Guitar Hero Bangers were in the style of heavy metal & were presented under the extremely angst-y moniker Silent Voices Kill. Josh then ditched the eyeliner for drama, and at 19, the young musician attended Canterbury University to train as an Actor. Recently graduating with first class honours, Josh was drawn to the world of music once more, creating his debut album Homemade, which was recorded in its entirety in the dining room of his Chelmsford home. Packaged in Josh’s DIY artwork, Homemade tells tales of student life, camping trips & political songs that really speak to a generation.
There’s something funny taking place on The Breaking Out Stage late in the evening.
When the last strains of new-found music have faded away and the imposing images of future rock gods are already a waning memory, the day is not over. For Mischievous Merchants of Mirth steal into the abandoned marquee and hawk their wares to any fun junkies and chuckle addicts searching for a hit of hilarity. The Fiasco Comedy Lounge is not for the humourless, the humdrum, the prudish or the prudent – it’s a place for the foolish, the fearless, the facetious and the frenzied.
Two nights of garrulous gags, senseless capers and whimsical ruminations from Adam Joyce, Phil Osborn, Andy Andozka, Kahn Johnson, The Unmistakable Scent of Leopard Rob Saunders, Thom Barret, Liam Sullivan, Carl Denham and special guests, will shake your beliefs and question your sanity.
Check the board at the Breaking Out stage for times and line-up for Saturday and Sunday evenings only.

We are Children of the Fuzz, a quartet from Essex with big ideas and bigger riffs. Could be described as alternative/psychedelic but we take influences from all walks of life and mash them together with some loud stuff for entertainment.
Lynchwood are a 3-piece indie/hardcore outfit from Essex known for pumped up stage antics, in your face vocals and a crashing wall of sound. It’s hard to forget with a rope around your neck.
