Besides the obvious mega headliners such as Peace, Fickle Friends and Marika Hackman, with still one more wave of acts to be announced, these are the hidden gems that 110 Above Festival has to offer this summer, in no particular order.
Blaenavon are a 3-piece band from Hampshire who have recently been killing the indie music scene with sellout UK tours, travelling around Europe with Sundara Karma and playing big festivals such as Reading and Leeds Festival and Kendal Calling, Blaenavon have taken the music world by storm. Due to play last year but unfortunately couldn’t make it, the 110 Above fans are itching to see what they will bring to Gopsall Farm this summer.
One of our go-to Blaenavon songs is Take Care, thrilling yet laid-back it will leave you wondering what else they have on the table.
Flyte are a London-based quartet who have worked with the likes of Courtney Barnett and have supported Bombay Bicycle Club and The Lemon Twigs, this bands are slowly but surely making a name for themselves in the indie music world. With catchy beats and dreamy vocals, this band are one to watch in 2018 and mustn’t be missed at this years 110 Above festival.
Victoria Falls is currently our favourite Flyte song down here at Turtle Tempo and we can’t wait to hear their irresistible tunes at 110.
HAUS played last year’s 110 Above festival and amassed great feedback from the audience on the sunny afternoon. With a captivating set and great lighting to further enhance their show, the HAUS boys are one to watch at this year’s festival. Recently finishing their tour with Friendly Fires, the London-based band are catching the attention of all the right people. Their upbeat drums and raspy vocals, match perfectly with the well-crafted lyrics and synth-fuelled songs that will be stuck in your head for days, offering nothing but a feeling of mystery in each tune.
HAUS’ latest single released in January 2018, Shameless, is a personal favourite of ours and is one we can’t wait to see live this summer.
Originating from Chester, the quartet have recently announced a UK tour and their latest single, Talk About You. Playing the Commune Stage last year, they were welcomed with sunshine and a brilliant atmosphere (and even treated us to an impromptu set once again!). With some powerful vocals and unique sounds, we can’t wait to be greeted by these guys again this summer.
Always Comes Back to Me is one tune we can’t get out of our head by the Idle Frets guys.
A band showing feistiness, angst and loudness. Hey Charlie is a group of three girls giving you exactly that. The international trio are coming to 110 Above festival with some of the best grunginess and harmonic vocals the upcoming music scene has to offer. Turn them up and listen to the three blondes give you guitar riffs and harmonies for days.
Hey Charlie released their latest single, Love Machine, in early March and is the perfect song to sing loud too.
Scottish band Rascalton are the new grungy band that you don’t want to miss out on. Touring in May and releasing their new single, Told You So in January, the boys are doing bits and accumulating a great listening platform with their sharp yet punky attitude grabbing everyone’s attention.
Down at Turtle Tempo, we’re ready for Rascalton to play Alone down on the Commune Stage at this year’s 110 Above Festival.
High Tyde are really earning their recognition in the music scene lately, justfinishing their UK tour and being announced for Live at Leeds and Truck Festival, whilst also supporting big names such as Peace, Bad Suns and Little Comets. These guys are ready to show 110 Above exactly what they’ve got.
We’ve been listening to Glow, by High Tyde lately, but check out their latest album released in February, 8978-202545.
Jade Bird has been supporting the likes of Jake Bugg and Blaenavon last year and her beautiful voice and skilful guitar playing has got us very excited to see her at 110 Above this year on the Old Town Hall Stage.
Something American by Jade Bird is really showing a different indie take on modern country/folk music that we are loving.
Seafret played 110 Above last year and the crowd was absolutely captivated by what they were giving. They’re meaningful lyrics and raw vocals really bring a sweet and surreal atmosphere when playing to us festival-goers. We’re excited to catch them again this year with the hopes of some new songs being revealed, as they’ve teased on their social media.
Be There by Seafret is one of our favourite and powerful songs to listen to by the duo.
Jordan Mackampa soul-filled rhythms are some not to be missed this year at 110 Above Festival. Playing last year, we know exactly what to expect from this ever-so-talented guy and we’re more than sure that it will be beautiful, of songs filled with real experiences and some sensational melodies, we’re sure we won’t be disappointed.
Walk On The Wild Side is one we’re excited to hear on the Old Town Hall Stage this year.
