Reverend & the Makers

Leaving Sheffield behind for Looe’s picturesque fishing port, Reverend and the Makers join the party at Looe Music Festival 2017.

They burst onto the scene in the early noughties with their debut single ‘Heavyweight Champion of the World’. Fronted by the outspoken Jon McClure, aka ‘The Reverend’, the band supported Oasis on their final tour and have been on the road with Arctic Monkeys. 

Their fifth studio album, ‘Mirrors’ released in 2015 received critical acclaim from the likes of NME and Noel Gallagher for being the Makers best material to date. Supporting The Jesus and Mary Chain on Friday 29th September Reverend and the Makers will be kicking off an electric weekend on the Cornish Coast.

Keeping the party going on Saturday, one third of the Fun Lovin’ Criminals, Uncle Frank is back with his own band. Made up of multi-instrumentalists Frank Benbini and Naim Cortazzi they’re ready to take the main stage by storm once again.

Festival favourites Tankus the Henge are back on the bill and ready to ruin the silence and disturb the seagulls. High on energy and deep on soul, if you’ve not seen them before their live shows are something to behold. Make sure you’re on the beach on Sunday.

Keeping the Harbour tent bouncing throughout the weekend is Balkan electro swing group, Mr Tea and the Minions and seven piece blues band Dougie Burns and the Cadilacs.

Names already announced on the stellar line-up are, Happy Mondays, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Lulu, Cast, The Membranes, The Undertones, The Correspondents, Holy Moly & the Crackers, Breaking Trad, 50 Year Storm, Mike Dennis, Oh Majester and Rose Kimberley.

For a Cornish getaway to remember, fill it with world-class entertainment, mouth-watering food and a smattering of culture. Book it for the weekend of 29th September to 1st October 2017.

Day tickets (adults) are £40 and are ideal if you can’t manage the whole weekend. Early bird 3-day tickets are currently £99 for adults, £30.00 for under 18’s and under 5’s go free. Ticket and tenting packages ensure you can book a place to stay and a festival ticket in one easy bundle.
