What’s the Festival Fringe…?

The Main Stages for 2019!

The Fontanas

Get ready for a sound that encapsulates summer, with funky Brazilian, afro latin vibes and a heap of infectious, feel-good tunes! This is a band who have trail-blazed the festival circuit, lapping it up and creating a whole carnival of fans en-route. Based in London with funk and ska influences.

‘Seriously funky’ – BBC 6 Music

Whitehall Parade

Seven piece rootsy folk rock band based in Cardiff (formerly known as The James Clode Band). They describe their music as a combination of up-beat, foot stomping tunes and softer, more folk-orientated melodies. We’re privileged to catch them here after a busy 2018 touring various events including Watchet Music Festival.

Albino Frogs

Hailing from Swindon, ‘The Frogs’ play Jazzy, Funky, Latiny, Rocky, original tunes. Although they like to think of themselves as quirky ‘one offs’, they are often told that people can hear the likes of smooth jazz rock greats such as Steely Dan, Average White Band, Tom Scott, etc. running through their arrangements. Oh and they like to get the audience involved, so grab a front of stage spot!

Hotsteppas

Hailing from Bristol, Hotsteppas are an energetic 8-piece Reggae band who always deliver an exciting live show. Originally formed by three Reggae Soundsystem crews, Hotsteppas offer a Dub infused, Funk inspired Roots Reggae sound. As well as supporting the likes of the Wailers, Hotsteppas are also a favourite on the festival circuit, playing BoomTown and Secret Garden Party.

Platform 1

If you enjoy these guys at the Friday Fringe, be sure to catch them on Saturday when they’ll be cranking up the sound with the addition of bassist, Jake. A brilliant 3-piece band originally from Wales (now in Bristol) promising modern melodic folk with a twist of electric guitar and bass. Natural storytellers who are best enjoyed live.

Hunter From Fremonte

A three-Piece indie-pop band that screams nothing but fun. Their first EP, Pavements, gained recognition from BBC Introducing, earning radio time in both the UK and California. Following the release of the single, Polaroid, the band have been working relentlessly in the studio to bring you the follow-up EP which infuses indie rock with heavy 80’s synth influences. It promises to be a new exciting venture for the band.

Splat the Rat

Traditional folk bringing a modern twist to some old classics! An entertaining 4 piece from Swindon.

Christian Punter

Christian is a talented 20-year-old singer songwriter based in the Rhondda. Living in an old Post Office inspired Christian to take an innovative approach to his debut album. He’s been inviting people to post him memories, feelings and moments to transform into dreamy music.

Monmouth Town Band
