Sleeper

With music characterised by astute, observational lyrics and big, hook driven melodies, Britpop favourites Sleeper enjoyed huge critical and commercial success in the 90’s with well over a million sales and eight UK Top 40 hit singles including ‘Inbetweener’, ‘Nice Guy Eddie’ and ‘Sale Of The Century’.

Fronted by one of Britpop’s biggest female stars, Louise Wener, the band also had two tracks featured on the era defining movie ‘Trainspotting’ and has played the main stages of Reading, Glastonbury, V and Shepherd’s Bush Empire. The band reunited in 2017, completed a sell-out tour in 2019, and co-headlined a UK tour with The Bluetones in 2021.

The Feeling

Iconic rock/pop band The Feeling, whose hits include ‘Fill My Little World’, ‘Sewn’ and ‘Never Be Lonely’ have performed all over the world, as well as the Glastonbury Festival Pyramid Stage and Wembley.

This award-winning group is fronted by lead singer Dan Gillespie-Sells whose West End musical hit ‘Everybody’s Talking About Jamie’ was released as a Hollywood Movie in 2021. The band are set to release a new album ‘Loss. Hope. Love’ in Spring 2022 which will be followed by a major UK tour.

Sophie Ellis-Bextor

Kitchen Disco legend Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s fame rocketed during the Covid-19 lockdown when her weekly live Instagram streams provided a means of virtual escapism for everyone tuning in.

Sophie went on to release a greatest hits album ‘Songs from the Kitchen Disco’ which includes her previous Top 10 hits, ‘Groovejet’, ‘Murder On The Dancefloor’ and ‘Take Me Home’ as well as a cover version of the Alcazar song ‘Crying at the Discoteque’.

Festival Coordinator Paul Ashton said “we’re delighted that Sophie Ellis-Bextor has re-signed to close this year’s festival. 2022 is set to be the best party yet”.
