Line Up

Line Up Update

  • February 17, 2016


We have added even more bands to our Line Up, including the fabulous REVEREND AND THE MAKERS who will headline on Saturday night at the Festival.  Here are the some of the just as fabulous, but possibly less well known, bands and musicians who will complete the rest of the Line up at the Festival.


Wet Desert

Another band that is going to grace the main stage at Livestock this year is Wet desert, described by BBC Introducing as ‘thunderingly good indie-rock’ after a sell-out EP launch in 2015, Wet Desert are set to release their new EP within the next year. With the backing of their label, Shredder Live Lounge Records, their newest tracks ‘Just Alive’ and ‘What’s in a heart’ look to be their finest yet. Like and follow them on Facebook for updates and track releases – it’s going to be a busy year!’  

Of Kings and Captains

Of Kings and Captains are a pop-rock outfit from the Midlands who are rapidly gaining a loyal following.  The band have been heavily involved in the Midlands music scene since they started gigging in March ’12 and have played an extensive amount of well received gigs resulting in attention from press and local radio. Of Kings And Captains supported Bon Jovi on their UK “Because We Can” tour at venues including Birmingham’s Villa Park, Manchester’s Etihad, Cardiff city stadium, Sunderland stadium of light and Scotland’s national stadium Hampden park. The band has played along side artist’s including; The Enemy, Kids in Glasshouse’s, The Future heads and have received airplay on BBC radio, Absolute radio and Kerrang. The band has also been invited to perform at various Kerrang events throughout the year. We look forward to having them on the Main Stage at Livestock this year.

Rupert Stroud

Rupert Stroud is another established and hard working act that we have at Livestock this year.  Dermot O’Leary has championed his new song, by saying, “Morning light is a great song from new lad from Yorkshire, Rupert Stroud!”.  Rupert has also had his last 4 singles played on Radio 2, 6 Music, BBC Introducing, BBC Scotland and BFBS Radio Worldwide. Rupert and his band have opened shows for Texas, James Blunt and our own Reverend and the Makers, who will headline on Saturday night at Livestock this year!  Rupert Stroud is definitely one to watch and you can get up to speed with his music below.

Wake Up Leo

When a Band emails describing themselves as “Brooding Alternative Rock” and as “having been raised on a diet of great American songwiters” you take a listen.  And believe me, with Wake Up Leo you will not be disappointed.  They are a five piece band and brain child of, you guessed it, Leo. They  perform regularly around London and the South East and will travel West this summer for a performance at livestock, with their self described “Massive choruses, satire on modern life and love and a sound somewhere between The Cure and Arcade Fire with a hint of The Killers thrown in.

Sid Harvey

Sid Harvey is another act who will grace our New Acoustic Stage.  An experienced performer with years of playing in Blues and Rock bands around Gloucestershire, Sid has now, in his own words “decided to plough his own field”! He recently  released his first solo album and has been playing around Gloucestershire, with a great reception.  Essentially an Acoustic English Roots sound, we are excited to have Sid as a great addition to our new stage for 2016.


Siracuse are another local band from Cheltenham.  The 3 piece guitar band have been together, gigging, for over 3 years now and write their own alternative/ indie driven guitar music  with a nod to early 90’s guitar bands.  Having just finished recording their first EP, including their new single, “New Waters”, Siracuse are gearing up for a summer of touring and of course visiting Livestock!

Fuzzy Jones

Fuzzy Jones is another female artist to take to the stage in 2016 (we decided 2015 had been a bit boy heavy!) and we are really excited to have her along. Fuzzy describes her own music as “a tea party with Joni Mitchell and David Bowie, where Burt Bacharach occasionally pops by for a coffee” and cites influences from The Beatles to Billie Holiday. She has been featured on BBC Introducing, BBC 6 Music and BBC Leeds amongst others and even won “Best Song” at the prestigous London Screenwriters Guild in 2014. 

More exciting acts to come, including the Sunday Night Headliner!
