THE GREAT MALARKEY claim to be influenced by the likes of Tom Waits, The Pixies, The Pogues, Beirut, Nick Cave, Fanfare Ciocarlia, Manu Chao, The Dead Brothers and Toots and the Maytals (the latter of whom they supported with only their third gig). Truth is they are riotous mix of musical styles and genres delivered in a “multicultural train of fast beats and trembling slams of punk-folk spirit”. (rhythmpassport.com)
Drawing on their experience of over six years of extensive touring, with shows at Bestival (UK), the London Olympics, Boomtown (UK), Colours of Ostrava (CZ), Tønder
Festival (DK), to name but a few, and mainstream airplay in both the UK and Denmark, The Great Malarkey continue to delight audiences across the UK and Europe with their explosive, “balls to the
wall”, high energy live shows.
The Great Malarkey never disappoint. They bring their whole heart to every song, every show, every album and now to you on the LF2 stage at LF18. For a tease of what you are going to be in for click here

JEANNINE BARRY was the only British artist in a Country music line-up featuring Fort Worth's finest at this year's Texas Music Takeover Festival 2017, in London, and it takes more than just a powerful voice and a No.3 hit in the UK Country iTunes Charts to blow the boots off a sold-out crowd. It takes a sheer volume of authenticity. Something rising star Jeannine Barry carries in spades.
Jeannine's roots may lie in the UK, but the way she effortlessly tunes into the humble, raw and emotional candour of true Country onstage has allowed her to build a loyal fan base worldwide. Following a range of prestigious support slots, appearances and an invitation to headline the launch party for the UK's biggest country music festival C2C (Country 2 Country) 2017 she packed her bags for Nashville, recording and touring with Blake Shelton's guitarist, Kevin Post.
Often compared to Carrie Underwood, LeAnn Rimes and Emmylou Harris, Jeannine feels appreciative to be included in such company. Her unique blend of empowering fun-filled tinged stompers and bittersweet country ballads, will have you running to the dance floor to kick the dust off your heels.
After a hugely successful headline show in London, Jeannine has started 2018 off with her new music release 'Sweet Spot' in time for her sets at this year's Country 2 Country festival at The O2, London. Now you can catch her at LOWDE FEST in Hazeley Bottom - do not miss! For a sample of what to expect....click here
LATIMO are a group of 8 musicians whose distinctive sound – soaring vocals over contagious horn riffs – references their love of jazz, funk and soul.

Their debut album LATIMO is due for release later in 2018 at a very special album launch in Central London: sit tight for that announcement....but for now you can book to see them live on the LF2 stage.
