What a band we have here to headline our intimate festival.... 'Dodgy' rose to prominence during the Britpop era of the 1990s. They are best known for their hits "Staying Out for the Summer", "If You're Thinking of Me", and "Good Enough".Good Enough was their biggest hit, reaching No. 4 on the UK Singles Chart.
A solid festival favourite, Dodgy have performed at Glastonbury, Lakeside Fest, Guilfest, Leestock and many other big stages, and now here they are putting on a show for you guys, up close & personal at Waters Edge Fest!
Texas-raised Londoner Rodney Branigan learned to play in Austin, perform in Los Angeles, craft songs in Nashville, and put it all together in London.
Artists are often described as having “a unique talent”; few epitomise this more than multi instrumentalist Rodney Branigan. In fact, Texan-born Rodney’s talents as a musician are as plentiful as the many instruments he expertly plays side by side.
He masterfully combines extraordinary multi instrumentalist skills with heartfelt lyrics and a rich soulful voice;(often compared to Jeff Buckley)
Rodney graces many large festival stages every year including regular performances at Glastonbury & Cardiff to name a couple.
Cable Street Collective
London-based seven-piece Cable Street Collective have spent the last year writing and recording new material whilst they get ready for festival season to return. Recent releases showcase the direction of the new album. Their first new release, Speaking in Tongues, features friend of the band Gregg Kofi Brown, of the legendary Afro-rock group Osibisa.
Cable Street Collective initially broke through onto the festival circuit with the release of their first EP, The Best of Times, in 2014, and have since built up a stellar reputation as a live band. Their latest recordings are songs that have been road-tested extensively, with back-to-back summers tearing up the likes of Boomtown, Bestival, Secret Garden Party, The Isle of Wight Festival, and the Lake of Stars Festival (Malawi), as well as those mentioned below.
In 2019, building on the critical hype and radio play (on the likes of BBC Radio 6Music, Radio X and Amazing Radio, among others) generated by their second EP, they toured extensively – playing at Glastonbury, and Shambala as well as a whole host of smaller festivals and venues up and down the country.
Their sound mixes African-influenced guitars and beats with soulful female vocals, socially conscious lyrics and western melodies, creating an idiosyncratic alt-pop sound that’s all their own. Their sets are guaranteed to get everyone to their feet.
Local band, The Endings.' are a five piece Celtic Folk Rock band playing upbeat original material. They also cover songs from the Pogues, Dropkick Murphys, Rumjacks eand others ..... A Superb upbeat session is promised, full of interaction, Irish Jigs and so much more.... Do not miss this one!!
