About our 2022 line up
Local top-talent from Marlborough School, Woodstock, The Kokroachez have continued to develop their sound to offer a unique and authentic pop, rock and punk set. Their performance is a mix of their own songs and carefully selected covers.
Alternative dance / indie pop, drawing inspiration from 90’s Big Beat, but with as much live instrumentation as 3 people can manage. Never mind the apocalypse, the Pandapopalypse is here and everything is going to be absolutely bloody great!
3.00 Jen Berkova
Jen's music combines elements of R&B, Soul and heartfelt lyrics delivered with edge, creating her own unique sound and leaving audiences with a sense of nostalgia. A newly established Oxford talent with Truck Fest and Towersey already under her belt!
4.00 Gods of Groove
Flares and funk... think Chic, Earth, Wind and Fire etc with the amazing Nina Jade on vocals! Gods Of Groove were a massive hit at Woodstock Live 2019 and return this year... because they're awesome!
5.00 Wednesday's Wolves
Regulars at Woodstock's own Acoustic Club and returning to Woodstock Live again this year, Wednesday's Wolves are one of Oxfordshire's finest! Their songs use simple guitar riffs and vocal harmonies, combined with percussive instruments, to create emotive and evocative music, usually with a melancholic edge.
6.00 The Publicans
"What started out with a drinking song lamenting the closing of our favourite pub, somehow grew into a writhing mass of songs and stories about ourselves and our friends and the nonsense in our lives." An original mix of Irish folk and English indie with reckless enthusiasm and honesty!
7.00 The Lost Notes
As heard on BBC Introducing, The Lost Notes are a 5-piece Originals Americana Roots band whose songs celebrate the ups and downs of journeymen, despots, sleazeballs, fools, the planet and the consciously idle all delivered in glorious 3-part harmony!
8.00 Jazmine Flowers
Woodstock's very own up-and-coming alternative R&B superstar, signed to Island Records and making waves across the UK! Get behind Jazz this year so that you can say you saw her here first!
9.00 2 Tone All Skas
Local legends, The 2 Tone All Ska’s are a 6 piece Ska band covering Madness, The Specials, Bad Manners and Trojan. They have built a great following over the last 7 years and have been fortunate enough to play some amazing Festivals including opening the main stage at Cornbury Festival this year!
1.00 Luke Jones
Beautiful guitar playing with alternative techniques + spacious and emotive vocals. Something unique and beautiful to enjoy on on the town square.
1.30 London Graffiti
A sound that is introspective and emotional and at times, anthemic and expansive. Notable musical influences are Joy Division, Doves, Editors, The National or War on drugs.
2.10 tp & woodman
Chilled and original guitar soundscapes featuring the legendary 12 string specialist Tony Poole and the soaring Strat of woodman (aka Chris Baylis). Premiering tunes from the forthcoming album 'Farewell to Venice' by Chris Baylis. Shades of the Floyd with a nod towards Hank Marvin (on acid!).
3.00 Odd Child
Fun floor fillers for all the family! Get ready to dance the afternoon away!
A new sensation from the city - ska and reggae influenced tunes from some truly charismatic Oxford boys!
A potent mix of folk, blues, country and pop with their individual interpretations of the obscure and the familiar. Woodstock legends and former Woodstock Live headliners!
6.00 Bankside Blues Band
Bringing blues and blues-adjacent sounds from across the decades, Bankside Blues Band are shedding pub-band clichés and giving new energy to the Oxford Scene.
7.00 Split The Dealer
Walking the wire between 90s influence and modern pop, Split The Dealer's sound is fundamentally honest. A young band on the rise with big melodies and a powerful, memorable sound.
8.00 The People Versus
An up-and-coming band head-hunted by the Woodstock Live committee - original alt/folk with a new sound. A real must hear act for the 2022 festival
9.00 Ran Kan Kan
Ran Kan Kan is Oxford's Cuban Big Band! Led by singers with a dazzling array of horns, flutes, guitars, piano and percussion, this passionate music will win your heart and move your feet.
