Last Dinosaurs, Thomas Gandey, The Valentines, The Gaa Gaas and more for Jersey Live

More acts head to Jersey Live

Having previously announced headliners Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds and Chase & Status, as well as UK rap superstar Professor Green, indie icons Primal Scream and punk legends The Stranglers, the Jersey Live  announce that the line up has now been finalised.

Performing twice over the weekend (on the Main Stage and JT Stage) are Brisbane’s Last Dinosaurs. Combining the sunny afrobeat stylings of Vampire Weekend, the dance-rock percussiveness of Friendly Fires and the melodic brilliance of Bombay Bicycle Club. Completing the Main Stage line up are 12 year-old local talent competition winner, guitarist and singer Monty Taft, and Jersey Live regulars The Valentines.

The Dance Stage line up is now complete, with Schema and hip-hop/funk/breaks duo Fuzzbox.

A number of Channel Island artists complete the bill: Guernsey funk/hip-hop/soul DJ Oneofakind takes to the decks on the Hospitality Stage, while Sark-based Tom Waits-inspired folkies The Recks perform on the SoBe Stage, as do Jersey grunge outfit The Bloody Battle, acoustic singer-songwriter Rosie Barrett, garage rockers The Centeniers, rappers U.G & B-Eazy and Badlabecques, who sing entirely in the ancient language of Jerriaise (Jersey-French), before 18 year-old folk starlet Jake Bugg and New York pop-funksters Friends headline each day. The SoBe Stage will kick off on Saturday afternoon of the festival with a very special BBC Introducing show, broadcast live from the stage and featuring guest interviews and live acoustic and full band sets from Brave Yesterday, The Valentines, Janice Graham Band and Bwani Junction.

The JT Stage line up, topped by Manchester indie-ska outfit Janice Graham Band and Last Dinosaurs, is now complete with Ed Sheeran-cohort, Scottish singer-songwriter Nina Nesbitt, and Scottish indie-afrobeat band Bwani Junction, as well as Brighton-based Jersey boys The Gaa Gaas. They are joined by fellow Jersey-expats, math-punk 4-piece Pirate Video Company; power-pop act Brave Yesterday who last year opened Glastonbury’s famous John Peel Stage; local hip-hoppers Ed & BJ and Any Given Sunday, and Main Stage opener Monty Taft.

The festival boasts six stages in total: The Main Stage, where the big guns go head to head; The Dance Stage, which will host some of the world’s hottest DJs and producers. The Sobe Stage is a themed stage featuring a mix of local and international artists, as well as a fancy dress stall and games galore; The JT Stage hosts an array of local and international artists, and provides a more chilled-out area; The Hospitality Stage is available to Hospitality ticket-holders and features exclusive DJ sets throughout the weekend; The Full Flow Locale Dance Tent hosts the best of Jersey’s DJs.

You'll find plenty of bars, an entire food village, arts and crafts stalls plus a funfair.
“The line up is now complete and I’m confident it’s one of the best, if not the best line up we’ve ever had. There’s a great mix of new, up-and-coming and well-established artists, and there’s such a great mix of styles on offer. The beauty of any festival experience is getting to see your favourite bands and also getting to make some new discoveries that you might not normally go out to see at a regular gig, and I hope people savour that experience this year!”
Festival organiser Warren Le Sueur
