Bristol's most manic free-wheeling noisepop collective. On Record Munch Munch are at once Delightfully DIY and fearless polyrhythmic. Live they are Instrument Swapping, Shambollic genius.
ICE SEA DEAD PEOPLE

renowned for their live shows which have been described as an insuppressible blur of energy. Venice Ahoy Blend intricate guitar lines, boisterous gang chants, afro-beat rhythms and sound like Foals if they a sense of fun.
Rising from the ashes of Birmingham noise rock legends Distophia. Calories take the power and passion of their predecessors and distil it into a stripped down and pop sound. Joyous and uplifting, they're one of the best bands in Birmingham.
GREAT ESKIMO HOAX
More local talent comes in the form of the oustanding Great Eskimo Hoax. Expect grandiose atmospherics from Birmingham's finest purveyors of folktronica and sparkling space odysseys.
Also just added are the devastatingly dancable Mirror! Mirror! Anyone who's seen them before know that they always kick up a storm of twisted disco rhythms, contorted limps, skewed guitar lines and topless action.
Rounding off this amazing line up are Punk-Step heroes Scarlet Harlots. Fusing together elements of Indie, Dub and Grime the Harlots have a wonderfully threatening charm and sound like a street smart Larrikin Love.
In addition this amazing line up we'll also have exclusive DJ Sets, BBQ, cheap cocktails, cake stalls and a mini flea market.... All at The Rainbow, Digbeth
