What's On

Stereo MC's
Stereo MC's
One of the most successful hip-hop acts to emerge from Great Britain, Stereo MC's formed in London in 1985, when rapper Rob Birch and DJ/producer Nick Hallam formed the Gee Street label as a means of promoting their music. Following the release of the album Supernatural, Stereo MC's toured with the Happy Mondays and EMF before entering the studio to record their 1992 breakthrough Connected, a sample-free album recorded completely with live instruments which spawned major hits like 'Step It Up,' 'Creation,' 'Ground Level,' and the title track. One of the UK’s most exciting live acts, they will bring their unique atmosphere to the Graze headlining slot.
Republica
Republica
As Brit-pop remained popular in England during the mid-'90s, Republica hit the charts with a sound closer in feel to '80s indie-dance groups such as the Pet Shop Boys and New Order. Vocalist Saffron, born in Nigeria, began writing songs, and after recruiting guitarist Johnny Male and drummer Dave Barborossa, Republica debuted with the single ``Out of the Darkness.`` U.K. indie-dance label Deconstruction signed the group and released its self-titled debut. Their most noted tracks, ``Ready to Go`` and “Drop Dead Gorgeous” became hits both in England and in the States.
The Agency
The Agency
The Agency is probably the most popular band ever to play in Twyford. Their soul-dance nights at the Parish Hall in the nineties and early 2000s are legendary. Originally from Bournemouth, the band officially split in 2015 but have agreed to re-form for this one-off appearance especially for Graze Festival. Expect bold brass, serious funk and James Brown workouts.
Benjamin Folke Thomas
Benjamin Folke Thomas
Hailing from Gothenburg, Sweden, Ben has been described by Q Magazine as ”One of the best guitar players you’re ever likely to hear”. He’s played over a thousand gigs around bars and clubs around London and has become one of the most exciting and explosive live acts on the quickly growing Americana scene.
Rews
Rews
Poised on the cusp of a major chart breakthrough, we are proud that REWS have accepted our invitation to return to Graze after their sensational opening slot in 2016. The due is now signed to the Marshall label (home of Marshall amplifiers) and have recorded their latest tracks in Abbey Road Studios.
Mutter Slater Band
Mutter Slater Band
Fondly remembered as the front man of the much-loved Seventies West Country prog-rockers Stackridge, Mutter now specialises in souful, bluesy grooves with his band, which includes ex PJ Harvey bassist Ian Olliver.
Noble Jacks
Noble Jacks
Noble Jacks are a rip-roaring Alt-Folk band with roof-raising energy and whose warm electro-acoustic interactions fuse together with a mixture of upbeat folky footstompin' rhythms and engaging lyricism. The band encompasses heartfelt, yet uptempo songs showcasing fiddle, blues harmonica and big anthem toplines.
Polly Paulusma
Polly Paulusma
When Bjork’s label One Little Indian signed Polly up, it catapulted her round the world for six years, supporting Bob Dylan, Jamie Cullum, Joseph Arthur, Coldplay and many others. Uncut Magazine called her “the finest young female British singer-songwriter to emerge over the last 12 months” (in a year that saw Amy Winehouse and Joss Stone step into the limelight).
Ryan O'Reilly
Ryan O'Reilly
Now resident in Berlin, Ryan is one of Winchester’s most successful musical exports. His debut album The Northern Line showcases his captivating and atmospheric music.
Jonas & Jane
Jonas & Jane
