Spank Rock will be collaborating Amanda Blank brings an urban edge to Liverpool; from her baile-funk roots to a more recent punkier sound. Mancunian indie-poppers Dutch Uncles bring their distinctly northern verve to Liverpool whilst Trophy Wife debut with their melancholy disco beats.

Full line up Here
