Southern Californian band Rival Sons, who have drawn similarities to the likes of Led Zepplin and The Animals ,cross the Atlantic to headline the Hothouse stage in August. A review of the band noted; “Genres themselves cannot and do not do justice to the brand of music that these guys play.” Emertainment Review adds “It’s hard, fast, melodic, and raw, and it never lets up.”

Following the release of their third album ‘Darling Arithmetic’ in April, Villagers will bring proceeding to an end at the Black Isle Brewery Grassroots Stage on the Saturday night. Also added to the bill are Drenge who grabbed brothers Eoin and Rory Loveless a nine out of ten review from NME for recent album release, ‘Undertow’.

Neon Waltz showed no sign of easing up the growing momentum of support for the band who recently played Brew at the Bog, and of course signed that contract with Atlantic. Finishing off them most recent acts are a couple of singer song writers in Adam French and Jamie Lawson.

Thursday night tickets and various upgrades are available.
