What more do you want?

These East Midland lads are a four-piece indie-folk band. As well as enjoying a good hyphen, they have developed a unique and exciting brand of pop music, combining folk lyricism, funky grooves and shimmering vocal harmonies to form an irresistibly fresh sound.

Currently on their UK headline tour, The Tin Pigeons have entertained at Reading & Leeds, Secret Garden Party, Boardmasters, Lost Village, and Barn On The Farm  Festival.


East Midlands rapper aiming to provide an alternative to the current hip-hop narrative; in terms of subject matter, sound and presentation. Through his music he describes the harsh realities of growing up on a deprived estate and how he has been able to use this experience as a positive to progress in life.


Scribble Victory are a dynamic acoustic-pop duo from Derby, Formed in November 2013, they were featured in the top 120 ‘long-list’ for Glastonbury’s Emerging Talent competition 2015 and were listed as one of the top 50 acts to look out for in 2015 by Louder Than War magazine. The duo consists of Jamie Thompson (acoustic guitar and vocals) and Tomas Ward (drums and vocals).



Alex Blood & The Diggers are a genre mashing band with a plot under their belt, and not just one for growing veg in. Their unique blend of punk, rock, rap and reggae, has forged a sound described as “impossible to pigeonhole”

This band is gaining national exposure, rave reviews and an allegiance of fans. The uprising is growing stronger, question is though; can you dig it?


From the sleepy market town of Matlock comes one of Derbyshire's finest music producers. Combining genres and sound experimentation is at the heart of Dopla's work. You may have already caught his tracks on Radio 1 and Spotify's 'The Sound You Need' playlist. One things for sure, at the tender age of 19 this lad  has got big things ahead of him. Oh, and he'll be brining the dance tracks to get you moving in the summer sun!


Two bearded men  who play 90's dance tracks on guitar, that will get you big fish, little fish , cardboard boxing!

 Daz handles the guitar, loop pedals and vocals. 

Gaz takes care of lead guitar and bass.



With a mosaic of high quality musicians and an award winning songwriter under their belt, The Rogue Embers are burning brightly in the current music scene. This is Country Folk with attitude; expect a foot stompin’, hand clappin’ experience.


Who needs genres? This Derbyshire quartet play to the magic formula of folk, rock, blues and a generous dashing of funk. With an eclectic repertoire of originals and covers these guys always get the crowd going!


We all know Derbyshire has a lot going for it and now we can add a whole lotta soul to the mix. Derby's own smooth operator, Jamie Joseph, will be bringing the R&B vibes to WILDSIDE FESTIVAL for your listening pleasure.


Somebody, at some time, in some place probably said you can change the world with just a voice and an acoustic guitar. If that's true it's a good job Charlotte Evans is here as these are the tools she has mastered. A singer songwriter that will make you stop, listen and dream of a better world!
