NO HOT ASHES and THE WHOLLS will headline DPP Festival 2018 – with CARNIVAL CLUB, ODDITY ROAD, REQS and many more also appearing.
Closing the Sunday of the festival, THE WHOLLS’ energetic and edgy live performances have gained them a reputation as electrifying. The band signed licensing deal with Sony last year, and released their self-titled debut album in May to rave reviews.
Summer 2017 saw the band support Kaiser Chiefs and take in major festivals, including Isle of Wight, Reading and TRSNMT. They embarked on a UK headline tour in September, and are currently preparing for a range of major support tours in discussions with their agent.
There is a reason everyone is talking about The Wholls – they are quite simply a hard-working bunch of mates with bags of charisma, boundless energy and their sights set firmly on the world’s stadiums. Their headline performance at DPP Festival 2018 will be unmissable.
Headlining Saturday are Stockport disco-funk four piece NO HOT ASHES. They go from strength to strength, with over 750,000 Spotify streams on their irresistible tracks, a deal with Modern Sky Records, and a 650 capacity gig at Club Academy Manchester that sold out two months in advance.
Their band’s music will also feature on the second series of hit BBC One drama ‘The A Word’ in November. As the band finalise very exciting plans for 2018, DPP Festival will be one of the very last chances to experience No Hot Ashes’ live set in an intimate venue.
Also high up the bill are CARNIVAL CLUB, fresh from supporting Courteeners frontman Liam Fray on his sold out national tour; popular indie rock four piece ODDITY ROAD, whose autumn tour took in big headline gigs after they played to 4,000 people at Y Not? Festival; and Derby’s own REQS, who are currently recording their first EP after gigs with Dantevilles, Judas and Mint.
Completing the line-up are Mancunian bands THE CLAREMONTS and THE COVASETTES, rising Wakefield quintet THE GALLERY, and local acts THE HONEYMOON SUITE, AYRES, HITFACED and NIAMH MELTON.
After the success of its first year, which featured Judas and Misfires, DPP Festival 2018 will be even bigger and better. Day and weekend tickets are on sale now – do not miss out on a huge line up.
