There are some absolutely cracking bookings on some of the other stages, Daedelus at Islington Mill being a highlight. Also, Bad Uncle showcasing some one off collaborations, and MCR Scenewipe hosting all their acts via skype. Check the website for more info.

We hope to see you there!

We would like to bring your attention to a great EP from Herbal Sessions’ Raikes Parade, who has been on our radar for some time, having featured on our Hear No Evil compilation last year and recently playing the MOF Records Dulcimer session. ‘Blunted in the Bedroom’ is a great taster of what Raikes is about, from dusty instrumental hip hop through to blissed out dub and electronica. Check it out and buy it below, and you can also hear the Raikes Parade tune from our Hear No Evil compilation on the Mind on Fire soundcloud page.
