RED RUM CLUB
The Library stage is headlined by one the fastest growing acts in the country, scouse Americana’s Red Rum Club – a band who should be at the top of your must-see list. After releasing their debut album Matador on Modern Sky UK back in January, the Liverpudlian six-piece have gone from strength to strength with their anthemic, cinematic soundscapes and ‘Tarantino-esque’ wild western vibes. The band have had extensive national radio exposure, played multiple festivals including the Isle Of Wight Festival and have sold out venues up and down to the country. Their next hometown show at Liverpool’s O2 Academy in September sold out months in advance. Catch them on the smaller stages while you can and hear the uniquely identifiable sound that is Red Rum Club.

One of Northern Exposures favourite tracks ‘Thank God, im Not You’ has amazingly been streamed over three million times! With their heavy guitar lines, dual vocals and huge anthemic hooks the band are set to take the Library stage by storm.

Fast-gaining momentum, Sydney quartet Planet are currently on their first headline tour of the UK.

Their sound is laced with deep harmonies, huge melodies and is undeniably a brilliant force of rock’n’roll. Not to be missed.

Fast, full of vitality with gritty vocals and punchy drums, The Estevan’s are making quite an impact on the guitar scene. After seeing the band at the Isle Of Wight Festival the band certainly know how to work up a crowd with songs that have massive energy. Banger after banger, this band quite easily sits alongside Catfish and the Bottlemen and an early Arctic Monkeys, the band have an insatiable energy and their potential is massive. The track ‘Gotta Know You’ is fast becoming quite the anthem, you can watch the band play it below at This Feeling TV.

Sheffield four-piece The Rosadocs sold out their first ever headline show in one day!
