 2023 Line Up 


The Colas

Exciting 6-piece covers band playing hits by Pink Floyd, T.Rex, Jocelyn Brown, CHIC! Formed at Red Lion’s open mic night, they are now all great friends and can’t wait to kick off the day with an epic set that gets everyone dancing!


Vangelis Loulis

Versatile and seasoned singer/songwriter with global experience, performing from the bars of Athens to the land down under. Don’t miss his highly anticipated act which promises to bring a unique mix of gypsy swing and rock!


Kimberley Brinny

With an electrifying mix of Motown, Soul, Rock, 80’s, 90’s Pop, and Ska. She’s refreshingly honest about her look and we can’t wait to see her on stage! Don’t miss her appearance in Crawley Down before she zooms off to her next gig!


Waking the Neighbours

They began streaming from their living room during lockdown, but Tara and Gibby now bring popular pop and rock to various venues throughout the South East. Please accept our apologies if they end up Waking the Neighbours!


Lucy Alice

Since last year, Alice has released her single ‘Adrenaline’ and returns to our stage for her debut performance as a four piece indie rock band! Bringing songs from across the ages, this act will suit all audiences.


Ollie Patterson

A firm favourite in the local gigging scene. Ollie brings a selection of hits from the 60s to today. He has played from the smallest pub to music festivals, and we cannot wait for him to welcome in the sunset in Crawley Down!
