We’re super excited to present our Marshfest 2022 line-up, with some very popular returners as well as a few fresh faces. Here’s who’s to look out for:
Talk in Code
Talk In Code are the South West’s finest exports. Delivering a “shimmering slab of indie pop goodness” (Amazing Radio), the band have gone from strength to strength in 2022 recently signing to London based Regent Street Records. The four piece, described as “Pet Shop Boys meets The 1975” have delicately crafted their own style of 80’s inspired, synth led uplifting and danceable indie pop.
Bottle of Dog
A Bottle of Dog are a 3 piece rock band hailing from North Wiltshire. Their sound is inspired by the classic rock music their parents played them as kids with a bit of indie thrown in for good measure.
They are looking forward to finally playing Marshfest after the dreaded Covid prevented them from doing so in 2021.
Enter Red are an Alt-Rock quartet hailing from Bristol, UK. Taking inspiration from bands such as ‘Wolf Alice’ and ‘Nothing But Thieves’, Enter Red are best known for their massive stage presence which sees raucous youthful energy mixed with tight musicianship. The band have sold out multiple headline shows and their recent single ‘motion’ was nominated as BBC Bristols ‘Big New Sound’.
A high-calibre, high-energy funk and soul band, bringing a huge sound and party vibes to Marshfest 2022. Putting their unique twist on a trunk-full of funk, soul and disco classics, this 6-piece class act are guaranteed crowd-pleasers, with floor-fillers from the likes of Chaka Khan, Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin and James Brown and tones inspired by modern-day funk heroes Scary Pockets and Vulfpeck.
After a thumping set last time around, Antalya, a hugely talented band led by James Warren, are back for another amazing set of blues-inspired brilliance.
Pipe Dream are a popular 4 piece function band renowned for covering a wide range of popular fun and lively music in and around Wiltshire.
Local boys based in Corsham will be doing a stripped down acoustic set to sit back and enjoy the weather with a cool cider.
After a stupendous DJ set last year, Jonny “bad ass” Gibbons is back with a killer sun-set session to get us all dancing
