Yes it’s true…’s the bands that the Keswick Beer Festival rejects that end up at Glastonbury and Carfest’s North and South!

Understandably, Elton John, Stone Roses, Coldplay, Billy Ocean and Bryan Adams were all very upset not to be headlining at the “Skiddaw Stage” at Keswick Beer Festival for our forthcoming 2017 Festival, however, as ever we don’t like to let our KBF Fans down so we do have some great bands to announce this year including our first ever act at the Sponsors Preview night on Thursday night (1st June).

So who are the Skiddaw Stage Headline acts for 2018? Well the line up has yet to be completed SO WATCH THIS SPACE…

Just announced…

The lineup for the 2018 Beer Festival has just been made available and here it is:

The Gas Lighters – Friday Middle Band

What should you expect from a Gaslighters gig? A fine nights’ entertainment, from five lads who enjoy what they do with a smile on their face, because they are so glad to be ‘out of the house’. They are not precious about their music, performing with humour, as they love nothing better than to laugh at themselves which creates an infectious chemistry with their audiences.

The Understudies – Friday Headline Band

Four Gadgies from South Shields playing a load of tunes you don’t usually hear in pubs, with the kind of infectious energy and enthusiasm which has gained excellent reviews. The band play a mix of Rock, Indie, Punk and new wave which hopes to find that elusive combination of songs you don’t hear but that you know and love.

Loads of proper mint songs by such bands and artists as…….Bruce Springsteen, The Eagles, Steely Dan, The Police, David Bowie, The Who, ELO, The Faces, Wings, Talking Heads, Prince, The Jam, and a few more. Mint!

Soul Street – Saturday Middle Band

Four words to describe Soul Street – “Professional, Energetic, Fun and Dedicated.”

Soul Street have been established since 1993, in that time we have gone from strength to strength playing at hundreds of prestigious venues the length and breadth of the UK – but mainly serving the North East’s wedding market. We boast some of the finest musicians on the circuit and we strive to give 100% commitment and enthusiasm at every show.

The Moobs – Saturday Headline Band

The mOObs are a 6 piece cover band, playing in packed pubs and clubs, and playing the kind of music you want to hear. Covering the best tracks from today’s charts, such as The Killers, Kings of Leon and Snow Patrol and reaching back through the years to the 80’s and the likes of The Jam, The Police, The Stranglers and U2, you really should see, hear and FEEL the mOObs at work. It’s music to make you want to beat your chest, roar along to or even dance to (including on tables)! And, as ever, our thanks to you “The mOObs Massive” for your amazing support. Up the mOObs!
