Check out the acts...

CIRCU5… imagine rock and prog poured into a blender, mixed with a dash of 60s vocal harmonies and lashings of hard-driving rhythms. But while certain influences spring to mind, CIRCU5 exists in its own world of adrenalin-rush anthems, addictive choruses and goose-bump melodies. CIRCU5 is the project of Steve Tilling – multi-instrumentalist and guitarist/vocalist for TC&I (the band of Colin Moulding and Terry Chambers from XTC). Check out CIRCU5 at


I Am The Manic Whale are unashamedly a progressive rock band. While evoking many of the great progressive artists like Genesis, Big Big Train, Spock’s Beard and Neal Morse, the band brings something new to the table. Their intelligent lyrics touch on unusual and interesting subjects – from science fiction to the history of printing, the decay of a derelict swimming pool, and the artistic creations of Dutch artist Theo Jansen (Strandbeests). Check out the band at


Spiral Key is a melodic, symphonic, rock band specialising in thoughtful, complex and heavy music, diverse themes and often a dark sense of humour. The band features the distinctive voice and intricate guitarwork of David McCabe and the thunderous bass of Ken Wynne. Spiral Key burst onto the stage in 2016 performing with leading bands from the prog and metal scene, including Kingcrow, Votum and Reign Of Fury. Check out the band at
