THE MONSTER HITS
ON A MISSION TO BRING THE REAL HITS BACK!
Everyone remembers different things about the 80’s. From perms to shoulder pads, Dallas to Bros, there’s a lot to be embarrassed about. But in amongst all the hairspray and spandex there were tunes – real tunes, killer tunes – tunes played by real bands and sung by awesome singers!
This band plays nothing but those stone-cold classics and went down a storm in 2017, we cannot welcome them back to celebrate our 10th anniversary!
Electric Umbrella will be back on our main stage to help us celebrate our 10th anniversary!
Electric Umbrella is a collaboration of professional musicians and adults with learning disabilities; writing, experiencing and performing music at small pubs, big festivals, live radio and everything in between.
They believe in a world where there is no ‘us and them’, and are on a mission to challenge people to think differently about learning disabilities, and we cannot wait to welcome them back to M Fest!!
CHARLOTTE AND THE GLOVERS
Charlotte and the Glovers are a new five piece band from Hertfordshire in the UK, featuring the sublime vocal talents of Charlotte Glover. They blend gentle pop tunes with hints of country and jazz, writing original, sometimes melancholy, always memorable songs with a laid-back, chilled feel.
With their debut single being released late 2018 and their first live performances receiving a rapturous reception, 2019 is set to be a busy year for the band. They have a string of dates booked in local venues and will be bringing out new music that is sure to grow their already flourishing fan base.
INDI AND THE VEGAS
We are looking forward to welcoming this talented original band back to celebrate 10 years of M Festival as they perform in the afternoon on our Main Stage.
Their summer vibe (and dedication) has carried them as far as the shores of west coast USA, Los Angeles, where they networked and hustled their way to the door of Zaro Vega, an upcoming producer in California. Splicing the vintage sensibilities of their musical heritage (from Queen to MJ) with Zaro’s current Billboard production finesse (think Post Malone and the Wkend), an extremely commercial yet critically viable product has been the end result.
Revellers Steelband are a fantastic group from Luton who have come together to learn, teach and perform fantastic steelpan music! You will definitely want to revel in their joyous music as we welcome them back in 2019 to play you in upon your arrival to M Festival!
Headlining our second stage in 2019 will be ARC. One part acoustic guitar, two part female vocals and three part family, our headline local band is a family group based in St Albans. Arc Trio is formed of siblings Anya and Cara Rodford (Granddaughters of local legend Jim Rodford) and their uncle Russell. Their style of layered harmonies and country guitar riffs are sure to please this year’s festival goers!
When young London-based singer/songwriter Hope sings her songs, you hear a wealth of life experience far beyond her years.
Accumulating over 15 million hits and 70k subscribers on her Youtube channel, Hope’s voice is heard by people all over the world and her songs pull on your heart strings. Her acoustic cover of Dusty Springfield’s ‘I Only Want To Be With You’ was used for the 2016 Dog’s Trust #SpecialSomeone ad campaign, aired on prime time ITV throughout the year. She has released 2 highly successful acoustic EPs in both 2014 & 15, ‘Optimist EP’ reaching #8 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter Charts.
Amelia Lappert is a fresh and exciting new talent to emerge on the singer/songwriter scene. Her writing contains elements of country and folk conveyed soulfully yet with a commercial vibe. The lyrics and melodies resonate deep into the hearts of her audiences, her beautiful tone reaching exquisite heights with clarity and ease. Born and raised in Hertfordshire, she has been gigging in St Albans and around London since graduating in June 2015. Studying music/popular music at Liverpool University gradually helped to bring her out of her shell having been too shy beforehand to really go for the music career she so desperately wanted.
GRACE GEORGE is a British female vocalist based in Hertfordshire who accompanies herself with Guitar, Piano and Loop Station.
