ISFEST 2017 Lineup

The Skarlettos

The Skarlettos

An energizing cocktail of rock, pop, post punk and ska based in Sussex, The Skarlettos are regulars on the local festival scene with a very loyal and enthusiastic fan base. Making their Isfest debut this year, we're looking forward to seeing these notorious purveyors of good times vibes close the festival with their headline slot.

Dethonator

Dethonator

"Bombastic, raucous and infectious, 'Monuments To Dead Gods' is an awesome display of traditional British heavy metal” - Frenzy Fire

Dethonator are an exciting, four-piece Heavy Metal band, with guitarist Henry Brooks also known to many Isfield locals from his weekly appearances at The Laughing Fish. Dethonator have honed their craft over a decade and a half of gigs and tours, demos and self-releases, line-up and even name changes to become what they are today. Having earned a formidable reputation for their hi-octane, exhilarating live performances and their immediate, anthemic songs, Dethonator's fan base has been steadily growing.

Psycho Babble

Psycho Babble

Psycho Babble is a five-piece local Sussex band playing a blend of rock, punk, and indie. They have supported signed bands like Inspiral Carpets, The Bluetones, and Shed Seven on tour at Concorde2 in Brighton so they know their stuff and have played live on air on Juice FM in Brighton, Eagle FM in Guildford, and Meridian FM in East Grinstead. They have also played small outdoor festivals such as The Horsham Rock and Blues Festival and The Gig In The Garden in Hampshire and so are perfect for the vibe of Isfest.

Straw Dogs

Straw Dogs

Irish folk band that regularly play around Sussex and in particular at the Con Club in Lewes, where they were first “scouted” by the Isfest organising team! Foot tapping, traditional music that you just can’t sit still for.

Rack and Ruin

Rack 'n' Ruin

Rack n Ruin are a four-piece band - two guitars, bass and drums, that have been together (as a four piece) for five months. They play a wide choice of classic rock covers, with a couple of surprises! They are not afraid to cut loose and a good time is guaranteed for all. Another Isfield local is a mainstay of the band – Brian Potter.
