Mik Artistik's Ego Trip

"The best live band I have seen all summer" ~ BBC 6Music Presenter Gideon Coe

"As mad as a wasp trapped under a pint glass" ~ BBC 6Music Presenter Shaun Keaveny

Glastonbury favourites return with their madcap mix of music, comedy, and straws!

Come along to see what all the fuss is about...and for the uninitiated how would you compare and describe them...simply, you don't...as there is no one else quite like them.

Three very different individuals just doing "what we do", it's a joyous experience which will make you sing, dance, laugh, cry, and very possibly toss drinking straws all over the place!

It's an incredibly daft, joyful, and sometimes poignant affair, as Mik tumbles around the stage, spluttering lyric's, occasionally tripping over leads, and sprinkling the audience with straws, whilst the elegant engine room of Benson Walker & Jonny Flockton hold down the melodies.

The boys draw wild and enthusiastic crowds at all the major festivals they attend, and this summer their white label promo single 'Plastic Fox' was as good as 'Single of the Week' on BBC 6Music after presenter Gideon Coe, who described the band as the "best live act he has seen all summer" chose it as his 'Recommends' track.

Come along and see for yourselves.... you won't be disappointed!

The BelleFleurs

Bath based trio who take songs from Pop, Metal, Rock and Punk, give them a good spanking and make into completely new arrangements. Performing everywhere from Glastonbury to Harvey Nicks, with fairly tight corsets and very tight harmonies, this is no Vintage tribute act. They are slowly re-writing The Andrews Sisters Songbook!

"One of the most arresting, amusing and just plain likeable acts to come out of the subculture of the women's movement since feminist cabaret in 80s London" - Andrew Gibson, Professor of Modern Literature, University of London

"l so loved your performance...look forward to seeing you again hugs x People, go see !!" - Lorraine Chase
