Setting the scene for the headline performance will be Minnesota four piece Poliça who’s bass and rhythm heavy, electronic pop is unique and hugely captivating and their dynamic live show is anchored by two drummers, a melodic bass player and lead singer Channy Leaneagh’s ethereal vocals.  They will be performing tracks from their 2012 debut album ‘Give You The Ghost’, the track ‘Dark Star’ is a well known stand out track which has been used on many advertisements and TV shows to date. Nik Colk Void is the guitarist / electronicist / vocalist of post-industrial artists Factory Floor and she showcases her own particular brand of beautiful noise, her 2012 single ‘Gold-E’ on Tim Burgess’ OGenesis records received rave reviews.

The final support act is Daughter, their sound and architecture masterfully blends fluttering, heart on the sleeve, acoustic ballads with brooding ambient soundscapes and their debut album ‘If You Leave’ is a thing of great majesty and their track ‘Human’ has this week been named Zane Lowe’s Hottest Record in the World. Their debut album is released this Monday, 18th March and has already been named Album of the Week by Annie Mac.
