Headlining the Main Stage of the inaugural Neck of the Woods will be… THE KOOKS. Over the years, The Kooks have proven themselves to be pillars of the UK indie pop world. Celebrating the 15th Anniversary of their iconic debut studio album ‘Inside In/Inside Out’ this year, the band will be reminding the Neck of the Woods crowd exactly why its songs are still the soundtrack to a whole generation of young people.
Special guests across the Main Stage will see appearances from Sydney rock stalwarts DMA’S; a high-energy performance filled with jagged love songs from South London’s SEA GIRLS; a set of musically ambitious and dreamily intimate indie-pop from dodie; plus momentous guitar pop melodies and wistful lyricism aplenty from THE LOTTERY WINNERS.
Over on the Second Stage, Brighton band YONAKA will be topping the bill with their bruising brand of alt-rock. Elsewhere, KAWALA will be bringing danceable afrobeat-inspired rhythms aplenty, CRAWLERS will be demonstrating why they’re one of Liverpool’s hottest bands of the moment, plus there’ll be must-see sets from THE ROYSTON CLUB, STONE, DECO and RATS.
Offering plenty of opportunities to catch the stars of tomorrow over on Stage 3, expect to be introduced to the psych-umbrella’d rock’n’roll of THE GOA EXPRESS, the refined songcraft of BETH McCARTHY; not to mention rapidly rising artists like NOISY, DELIGHTS and more.
Neck of the Woods will also be placing the spotlight on some of East Anglia’s brightest new acts, with Norwich’s own LOZEAK confirmed to be appearing, plus a local act (TBC) will open the festival’s main stage. Further acts to be announced in due course.
In addition to the music, boutique street food stands and bars across the site will be catering to all needs from day til dusk.
Standby for further additions across the line-up including the main stage in the coming weeks.
