Now we are putting the icing on the cake with livewire, force of nature Fatman Scoop and some cracking indie action from the likes of The Magic Gang and Blaenavon. That’s as well as some of the best local acts we could find including the winners of our I Want to Play at Common People competition, so let’s be havin’ ya… See you down the front!”
