Big Shakeout 2017 Live Music

Big Shakeout 2017

If music is what life sounds like, then life is going to be pretty darn good at this year's Big Shakeout.

Our talent scouts have been busy seeking the exciting performers from around the UK to delight our ears, get our heads bobbing, and our feet moving. Although we're not giving away all of our secrets quite yet (you'll have to wait a little longer for the headliners), but here's a little taster of what you'll be listening to at the Big Shakeout...

LILA J band promo shot  

Soulful, quirky, and enchantingly honest "Underground Niceness", imported from Gloucestershire to get even the most reluctant of toes tapping.

Kentucky Cow Tippers EP cover  

The Kentucky Cow Tippers
The Bluegrass kings of the North bestowing everything from country-tinged harmonies to progressive "Newgrass" on our appreciative ears, complete with corduroy jackets.

The Ale Marys Folk Band  

The Ale Marys
Brightening up even the dampest of days with jolly, guitar-led folky pop and a jingly-jangly, sunny, 'major key' outlook. .

Cascadia Fault Line Music  

Cascadia Fault Line
Liverpool-based dreampop/shoegaze four piece, their uplifting harmonies and poetic lyrics will captivate and hynotise you from start to finish.


Matlock's hottest export: a Nu-Disco trio that takes the neon roots of funk and disco and embellishes it with a dose of Derbyshire cheekiness.

Johanna Alba  

Johanna Alba
Powerful melodies with a jazzy, poppy feel from an award-winning, up-and-coming singer-songerwriter.
