Meet The Acts

3 daft monkeys play glastonbury fringe 2017 launch event

With their quirky and original approach to music, and their passion, intensity and sheer joy of life, 3 Daft Monkeys have gained themselves a large and loyal cult following, which is still growing rapidly due to their intense touring schedule. Their music is hard to pigeon-hole, mixing and crossing many musical genres from Celtic, Klezmer, Gypsy, Balkan, Latin, Ska, Dub Reggae, Indie, Rock and even a hint of Shostakovich.

tankus the henge

Tankus the Henge are a six piece powerhouse of a band drawing visual and musical influences from old time Fairgrounds to modern day Circus; The Beatles to Tom Waits and Gogol Bordello to Radiohead, they embody a look and a sound that lies somewhere between their South East London home and the carnival town of New Orleans.

King Artisan Glastonbury

Epic multi-dimensional rock with soft and deeply held subtleties.

Channelling qualities of Pink Floyd, CSNY, Muse, Tinariwen, Jimi Hendrix, Hiatus Kaiyote, Stevie Wonder, Indian folk music and their own unique flavour of exciting, compelling tightly woven, intricately arranged songs with juicy harmonies.

Lazy Daze

Glastonbury band performing their own unique genre of ‘heavy folk’. At times both poignant and uplifting, Lazy Daze are the perfect opener to our Launch event.
