Haircut 100

Platinum-selling 80s chart mainstays Haircut 100 will join the music line-up of the Haslemere Fringe on Saturday 6th July.

Formed in Beckenham, London and featuring vocalist and guitarist Nick Heyward, the band is best known for their top ten singles ‘Fantastic Day’, ‘Favourite Shirts (Boy Meets Girl)’ and ‘Love Plus One’.

In the early 80s, Haircut 100 went from being London underground darlings to chart sensations in less than six months. Then, within a year, they had disappeared into pop’s ether, leaving behind one truly memorable album ‘Pelican West’.

Over 40 years on, they performed at the BBC Radio 2 Piano Room in 2023 and released a bonus version of that iconic Pelican West album. To bring the album to life, the band performed a one-off live reunion show at the O2 Shepherds Bush Empire. It was sell-out, prompting a full UK tour.

Festival Coordinator, Paul Ashton says, “I’m sure that music geeks like me, and anyone who remembers Haircut 100 from the eighties will be super excited to see them back performing. We’re delighted to be able to welcome them to the Haslemere Fringe.”
