Reverend and the Makers to Headline Saturday Night

  • February 19, 2016

Reverend and the Makers will follow in the footsteps of Scouting for Girls at Livestock 2016, headlining the main stage on Saturday night.  The outspoken frontman Jon McClure, known as “The Reverend” formed the incredibly successful but occasionally controversial band in 2005.  After a couple of not so successful bands, John and co songwriter Ed Cosens, hit the main stream after being picked up by Wall of Sound Records with their Album “The State of Things in 2007.


After several more very successful singles and albums the band are now famous on the Festival circuit for their incredible festival shows, described by McClure himself as “unbelievable” and Reverend and the Makers have developed their own cult following with the “Rev Army”.  They say as their records were played less on the Radio, their following at gigs went through the roof.

McClure says that he is happy with the success he has achieved over the past 10 years, happy to still be making a living out of doing what he loves.  He describes it as the band “existing in this twilight zone between moderate success and being an irrelevance to most people within the M25”. Out in Gloucestershire, we think that is a pretty good place to be in the world!

The band come to the Main Stage at Livestock in 2016, on the back of releasing their new album, Mirrors, probably the best work they have done to date. We cannot wait for this show and if you don’t want to miss it, get your tickets here:
