FRIDAY

Scouting For Girls were formed in 2005 by songwriter Roy Stride, Greg Churchouse and James Roland. Having signed to Epic Records in 2007 they went on to release their self-titled debut album which reached No.1 on the UK Albums Chart and went on to sell over 1 million copies in the UK along. Their classic chart hits include the anthemic She’s So Lovely, Heartbeat, Elvis Ain’t Dead, It’s Not About You and the huge No.1 single This Ain’t A Love Song. The band are still performing sell-out tours today and recently hit the UK singles chart again with their latest release Glow.

The Rosadocs are a five piece indie / alt rock band based in Sheffield.They formed in 2017 and within months of being together were invited to support The Sherlocks at their sold out hometown shows. Since then they have gone on to play countless shows and perform at many top festivals including Tramlines, The Weekend and The Isle of Wight. Their single "Stand Alone" is out now.

T'Pau without doubt are one of the most well remembered groups of the 1980s, having not only secured a huge UK number one with “China In Your Hand,” but also a massive number one in the USA with “Heart & Soul!” Still fronted by the wonderful Carol Decker, we can’t wait to welcome T’Pau to the WentFest Main Stage.

Planet Abba Established now for over ten years, Planet Abba continues to be the UK's leading Abba tribute band. Their professionally choreographed stage show, with many costume changes, faithfully encapsulates the sights and sounds of this legendary Swedish band and their endless stream of unforgettable hits. With a songbook like this, you know you're going to have a great party!

Stephanie Hirst After an incredible headline set at WentFest in 2023, STEPHANIE HIRST’S BELTERS LIVE is back!!! Reclaim the dance-floor as Stephanie Hirst celebrates the greatest clubbing era of all time, the 90s & Noughties. Steph will be mixing up a storm of club classics, some of it on vinyl as she truly does justice to this magical era.

SATURDAY

Blue formed in 2000 and made instant stars of Duncan James, Simon Webbe, Antony Costa and Lee Ryan. To date the group have sold 15 million albums worldwide and performed to sell-out stadiums across the globe. Their massive run of success started with the classic summer anthem All Rise, followed by huge smash hits such as Too Close, Fly By II, If You Come Back, One Love, U Make Me Wanna, Guilty and Curtain Falls as well as huge No.1 collaborations with Elton John (Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word), Stevie Wonder (Signed, Sealed, Delivered I’m Yours) and Kool & The Gang (Get Down On It!) They will bring the biggest party to WentFest and will provide the perfect way to close our amazing summer party!

DOCTOR & THE MEDICS are in that very rare category: They made Number One with a song that wasn’t theirs originally, but became more well known for the song than the original artist ever did with “Spirit In The Sky!" Not only that, they were given permission by ABBA to release a cover of their anthem “Waterloo” as their follow-up single, which also made the UK Top 10 and introduced the song to a whole new generation!  They are one of the finest and most in-demand show bands on the UK festival circuit in 2024, and they will certainly bring the party vibe to WentFest 2024! 

Soul Sensation Cris Quammie singer, songwriter, producer and recording artist began his journey as The Soul Sensation in 1991 and has been going strong ever since. From Trinidad & Tobago Cris who has performed on television for the masses, moved to the USA to pursue his musical career and has become one of the most prolific ambassadors internationally of Motown sound in the last two decades, and is humbly still pursuing his career. Now back in the UK, and a guaranteed crowd pleaser, we can't wait to have him back.

Stars You will recognise vocal powerhouse Anastasia ‘Stars’ Walker from the immensely successful band Bang Bang Romeo who are a propelling force for female-fronted bands in a male dominated industry, and a strong and open voice for the LGBT community. Stars’ “once in 20 years voice” is unrivalled and the group’s larger-than-life performances sent audiences wild up and down the country, leaving them with jaws dropped and often reduced to tears. We’re pleased to confirm that for Wentfest, Anastasia “Stars” Walker is scheduled to give us all a truly stellar solo performance! Make sure you don’t miss this one!!

BICKER are Geordie twin sisters Molly and Lucy Wilkinson who have been wowing audiences together in their native North East. After taking the crowd by storm in our New Music Stage back in 2023 we are thrilled to be inviting Bicker back to perform on our Main Stage in 2024. They are ready for this step up!

THOR: GODS OF ROCK are a band that is much more than your run of the mill, jean and black t-shirt kind of band. With an arena style show packed full of songs from some of the worlds biggest bands, combined with a huge sound and lighting set up, costume changes and even pyrotechnics, you'll be left Thunderstruck by this high energy, non-stop rock show that will be on the stage, in the crowd and just about anywhere else they can get to

They are an unstoppable duo and we cannot wait to welcome them back to WentFest for an incredible show.
