PUSSY RIOT SENTENCING COMMEMORATION FESTIVAL...

SUNDAY 18 AUG 3-11.30pm SOPHIE DELILA: Sophie is our Sunday 18 August headliner. The high-energy London-based French performer boasts a successful music career, having performed as a member of French electro pop collective Nouvelle Vague, collaborated with the likes of Plan B and Nouvelle Star (French Pop Idol) winner Christophe Willem, and written for Duffy, and now she’s on the verge of releasing her third solo album. Expect a bit of jazz, funk, electro, pop and disco and get your dance shoes on! WITCH HUNT: This Leeds-based duo of Louisa Osborn and Chris Mulligan have been gathering buzz with their recent standout sets at Liverpool Sound City and Live at Leeds, and are now due to impress at Sheffield’s Tramlines festival. Self-produced track and second single “Crawl” is hauntingly beautiful, with Louisa’s angelic voice melding with swirling guitars and sinister lyrics. Think black magic, dreamlike and captivating – if you like lilting guitar sounds that wash over you with sensuality, this is the band for you. In Chris’ own words: “We’re a bit like the Dead Weather, The Kills, PJ Harvey and Queens of the Stone Age put together” – YES. ROUGHNECK RIOT: This stunning 6-piece from Warrington have everything a great band needs. Their contemporary hardcore folk-punk sound will blow the stage as they “generate a steam-rolling wall of melodic noise that hits you like a right hook” (R2/Rock’n’Reel Magazine). Often compared to The Pogues and The Levellers, with a dash of The Clash and Johnny Cash, not only will they blow your musical socks off, but they’ll put a smile on your face and fill the venue with the kind of powerful raw energy that the north of England is famous for. MINUTE TAKER: Manchester-based songwriter/producer Ben McGarvey’s 2008 debut solo album...
