Unmissable is our new feature where we scour festival lineups and give you a selection of bands you need to see. Our first festival of the 2019 summer is Isle of Wight Festival.
Coventry based Feet are one of the most exciting emerging bands of 2019. With a distinctive style which is a sort of fidgety/wonky britpop with psych tones, they are a band like no other. They also deliver a killer live show and with their debut album on the way, you need to see them sooner rather than later.
When? Sunday, 14:15 on The Big Top
Delivering theatrical, energetic and eccentric live performances, Walt Disco have been making a name for themselves with their dark synths and frontman James Potter's distinctive vocals. Potter produces a captivating performance on his own but with the rest of the band, their live shows are true spectacles.
When? Friday, 21:05 on the This Feeling Stage
The Dead Freights
The Dead Freights produce bluesy rock n roll music that will make you want to dance from the first note of the set. They have been playing around Southampton since 2015, but with the release of debut single 'Reasons and Walls' they found themselves being named in This Feeling's "Big in 2019" and now have made the This Feeling lineup for their first outing at the prestigious festival.
When? Saturday, 11:55 on the This Feeling Stage
Ever since we saw Lauran Hibberd for the first time at Isle of Wight 2018, we knew big things were coming up for the Isle of Wight local. Her storytelling style of indie rock with her fuzzy style of indie rock is infectious and you will have her songs stuck in your head for days after. She has just supported Hippo Campus across the UK and Europe and played her first UK headline tour so she is a name to keep an eye on.
When? Sunday, 12:15 on The Big Top
Djuno formed when they all met at Southampton Solent University. Ever since they have been gigging across Southampton and the south coast and they have gained a bit of a following. Their indie-rock style with driving guitar riffs, pounding drum beats and exceptional vocals. You will not find a better vocal performance than Courtney Gray's across the weekend.
When? Friday, 21:00 on the Kashmir Cafe Stage
