Jersey Live Festival with JT celebrates its 10th anniversary:
31st August – 1st September at the Royal Jersey Showground, Jersey
SUBJECT TO ORGANISERS GAINING THE BAILIFF'S PERMISSION
Jersey Live Festival returns this summer, supported for the 8th year by headline sponsors JT, for its 10th anniversary event. Following the recent announcements that Bastille and Gabrielle Aplin will join the Sunday (1st September) Main Stage bill, they announce the latest wave of artists that complete the Main Stage line up for that day.
First up are Coventry indie rockers The Enemy, who return to Jersey Live after having first appeared here at the 2007 event. The trio return as seasoned indie stars, with three UK Top 10 albums under their belt (2007’s We’ll Live and Die in These Towns, 2009’s Music for the People and last year’s Streets in the Sky) and more than their fair share of sell out tours, unforgettable festival performances and tours alongside British rock legends to speak of. Fronted by Tom Clarke, The Enemy’s Jam, Oasis and Rolling Stones-influenced brand of rock n’ roll has rightly gained them a reputation as one of the most ferociously exciting and honest bands plying their trade in the UK today.
Completing Sunday’s Main Stage line up are Los Angeles guitar n’ drums duo Deap Vally aka Lindsey Troy and Julie Edwards, whose blistering brand of scuzzy, in-your-face garage rock has drawn comparisons with The White Stripes and Led Zeppelin. Since exploding on to the UK scene in 2012, Deap Vally have gone on to perform at the Reading and Latitude festivals, support The Vaccines on tour and in December the band opened for Muse on several dates of their European tour. Their debut single ‘End of the World’ was selected as Zane Lowe’s ‘Hottest Record in the World’ on his Radio One show, and their debut album Sistrionix is released on Island Records on June 24th.
With the Sunday Main Stage line up now complete, we can also announce the latest addition to the Hospitality Stage line up. Joining John Cooper Clarke, Craig Charles and many more is comedian Simon Evans. A mainstay on the UK standup circuit, his appearances on Mock the Week, Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow and Live at the Apollo have made him a household name in recent years, and a cynical, sarcastic style has seen him lauded by influential comedy review site Chortle for his ‘sharp, acidic barb’ and as ‘a rich delight’.
