The 2018 emergence of Kitt Philippa with new single ‘Human’ and follow up single 'Grace' has been championed by Mary Anne Hobbs (BBC 6 Music), Phil Taggart (BBC Radio 1) and RTE 2FM amongst others. Throughout 2018, KP showcased their new material to festival audiences across Ireland and the UK including support slots with SOAK, Villagers, Lisa Hannigan and Hilary Woods. They closed out 2018 by winning 'Single of the Year' at the Northern Ireland Music Prize for their single 'Human'. 

Belfast dream-pop trio Beauty Sleep have just launched their highly anticipated new album, Be Kind, featuring singles ‘The Dark’, ‘Rainbow Ballroom’ and ‘The Feeling Back’. With subtle, indie-tinged pop hooks, soaring guitar driven choruses and a sound fueled by a unique, vibrant spirit, the captivating debut record showcases a young group clearly in love with the process of creating music together. Expect to hear golden vocal harmonies, dazzling synths and earworm hooks from a band with a well-deserved reputation for their frenetic live performances when they take to the Big Top stage.

Supported by Sonja Sleator & Gemma Bradley.
