Line Up

The WildViolets are a London-based disco outfit drawing inspiration from disco and funk legends like Nile Rodgers and Jamiroquai, and modern acts like Parcels and Franc Moody. The band delivers a refreshing marriage of vintage analog sounds and cutting-edge production. Their sound is an intoxicating mix of exhilarating hooks, infectious guitar riffs, and lush synths, The WildViolets have got their sights set high, continuously inspiring audiences to get on their feet and dance, the WildViolets want to be a leading live act on the circuit today.

Australian sister band GERMEIN - Georgia, Ella, & Clara Germein - grew up jamming together on their family farm in Adelaide. Raised on the records of B.B. KING, VAN MORRISON, & CAT STEVENS - their Dad played trumpet in a New Orleans rhythm & blues band, sparking the girls love for loud, feel good music they could dance to - while their Mum often led singing around the piano. Starting out busking on the main street of their local town with their younger brother, Germein soon began playing local venues while crafting their own unique brand of indie pop.

Cetty writes her own lyrics, composes her own music and in addition to her vocals plays piano and guitar. Her inspiration is very much drawn from soul music with an emphasis on a modern vibe. She has completed a BMus (honours) degree in Popular Music at Goldsmiths University.

Cetty has also composed and recorded two tracks for an Original British Movie working alongside Jools Holland.

She supported Olly Murs at Colchester with Dagny last summer. She also recently performed as part of Music Feeds in Manchester with James, The Farm, Starsailor, Chicane and many more.


Embodying the assertive DIY attitude of punk rockers, but placed in a commercial environment, Ben Kidson moves with the times. His music combines modern pop writing and production elements (think harry styles, taylor swift), with the alternative rock energy and arrangement of his heroes, Nirvana.

in 2022/23, Ben’s energetic live show earnt him a spot as a finalist at the Isle of Wight Festival’s ‘New Blood’ Competition, and at the American Express Gold Unsigned competition. If you’ve used Tiktok recently, you’ll see and hear him on an advert for Amex, which has had over 7 million views to date, and if you use Amazon Prime, you’ve likely seen him in ‘Unsigned’, a documentary about the competition itself.

Ben already has a fan in legendary singer Robert Plant, who signed him to the Wolves Records, and helped him get Radio 1 support on his first single ‘Joking’. He performed on the BBC introducing stage at Boardmasters festival in August, with his performance being chosen as one of the few to be broadcast across BBC Southwest as a highlight of the weekend.
