Will and the People – 9:30pm
A distinctive voice in the varied panorama of the Brighton music scene, Will and The People play with folk sounds with a tinge of reggae and ska, and a clear ability to put together a very catchy tune.

With a headline tour scheduled for late 2020, they have most recently released their new single Started On Love, last February.
Jack Conman – 9:00pm
With a style mixing together energy and melancholy, Hull-based singer-songwriter and virtuoso guitarist Jack Conman puts his skills as a multi-instrumentalist in the service of a dreamily introspective indie-pop with electric suggestions. After founding Axolotl Records together with producer Kev La Kat, he released EP “Heddison” in 2018, followed by a series of successful singles the latest of which, “Sweet Julia”, was released in April 2020. His first long player, “Seventh Sense Libido”, is forthcoming later this year.

Autralian-born singer-songwriter Harry Marshall has been writing his own music and performing on public house stages since age 13.

Sunflower Thieves – 8:00pm

Her latest single, “This Birthday Sucks”, was recently released in May 2020.
