Headliners:

Ben Yellowitz

@benjaminyellowitz

Born in the industrial city of Birmingham, he lives and creates in a warehouse in London. Benjamin Yellowitz fuses gritty, bluesy vocals, energetic guitar-percussion and dark production – he paints a wonderfully hedonistic picture of his life.

Yellowitz featured on several BBC Introducing Sessions, as well as achieving considerable critical acclaim in the press with BBC Radio describing his performances as: ‘Compelling, emotive and energetic’.

Rosie Holloway

@rosieholloway_

“Music has always been my language.” Rosie Holloway left school at 15 and began sweeping up hair in salons until she was old enough to work in bars. And it wasn’t long before she was the headline act in pubs and bars across London. She has already played at Glastonbury - despite no previous releases - an experience she says she will never forget, held down a residency at Ronnie Scott’s and has successfully held her own feminist music nights in Hoxton, aptly named Wild Women Do.

Openers:

Sloane Monroe

@sloanemonro

Sloane Monroe is a violinist and vocalist based in London, UK.  Her unique performances are influenced by blues, classical, folk and jazz styles, in which she combines live looping with electronic violin and voice.  Most notably she has headlined the PHILLTER Festival and has opened for Crystal Palace feat. Boyd Tinsley of the Dave Matthews Band.

King Tides 

King Tides are an East London band who bring with them a heavy Rhythm & Blues influence, accompanied by the ethereal and Lo-Fi wailing of guitar, saxophone, and vocals throughout.

Nonsuch Park

This rock band describes themselves on their Facebook page only as "A band" so expect exactly the sort of East London vibe that implies.
