The Tennents are November’s headliners at 229, a four piece all the way from Hull. Drawing influences from bands such as Peace and Foals, they’ve been moving towards a bigger sound recently, which hasn’t gone unnoticed by their local BBC Introducing, who have picked up several of their tunes. Their first single ‘Belgium’ has also received airplay on Amazing radio. They have a new EP on the way out too, this is a band who undoubtedly have some big things to look forward to in the next year.
Among others, In Between Echoes will be joining them. Another band from the Northern end of the country, this Leeds quartet have also been favoured by the BBC, gaining them airplay on their local BBC stations as well as being featured artists on BBC Introducing. They have a raw and edgy blues sound all of their own and promise to add a bit of soul to the evening.
Of course we will also have plenty more emerging talent from around the U.K. for your pleasure.
