Mr B The Gentleman Rhymer, Shlomo, Thrill Collins and KSH and the Going Goods announced!

We are delighted to announce our first selection of acts performing at the festival. Our Friday headliner will be the fantastically polite Mr B The Gentleman Rhymer and our Saturday closing act will be beatbox sensation Shlomo. We also welcome local favourites Thrill Collins and KSH and the Going Goods.

Gaining the reputation of an eloquent and entertaining live performer, Mr B The Gentleman Rhymer has played recitals across the UK and Europe, from performing at Glastonbury Festival to the NME club in Paris. He has been described as a ‘man on a mission to introduce the Queen’s English to hip-hop, creating ‘Chap-hop’. Mr. B likes to take to the stage with his Banjolele and perform pieces on high society, pipe-smoking and cricket, as well as more well-known music, re-worked in his own fashion. The Sunday Times said “there has never been a rapper like Mr. B”. http://www.gentlemanrhymer.com
After becoming the champion at the King of the Jam beatboxing competition in London, Guinness World Record holder, Shlomo, became well recognised for his original beatboxing techniques and talent. In 2004, Shlomo collaborated with Björk on her song ‘Oceania’, which was later performed at the opening ceremony of the Summer Olympics in Athens. This performance reached an estimated 3.9 billion people around the world and was nominated for a Grammy Award. Being a favourite on the UK Festival Scene, he’s performed at festivals including Latitude, Bestival, Glastonbury and Lovebox, and has collaborated with global stars such as Ed Sheeran, James Morrison, Jason Mraz, Jarvis Cocker, DJ Yoda and Martha Wainwright. The Guardian said “the kid’s good. Jaw-droppingly good”. http://www.shlo.co.uk

Supporting Shlomo on Saturday night are hip-hop heroes KSH & the Going Goods. The world of hip hop is a desolate one... With gangsters, players, pimps and g-thangs dominating the scene, the beauty of the genre is being lost. Thats where KSH and The Going Goods step in. An alternative acoustic band, coming straight out of the “ghettos” of Cheltenham. A fresh a lively feel filled with laughter and banter, this new band is already taking the scene by storm.


Opening the festival on our newly added Thursday night of programming are local legends Thrill Collins. Probably the most successful covers band that you’ve never heard of - let’s just say they have a habit of rearranging some of the most epic pop songs of all time, with surprising results. The band have toured endlessly around the UK, US, Europe and Scandinavia, playing over 500 shows in the last three years. This Summer they spent yet another Summer on the festival circuit taking in Glastonbury, Truck, 2000 Trees, Y-Not, Wychwood, countless jazz and folk festivals as well as several European trips.

Festival goers can either purchase tickets for individual days, or purchase tickets for the whole weekend. This year’s venues will include The Frog & Fiddle, The Quaich and The Beehive.

Walk the Line Festival has been nominated for several years as a contender for the Best Metropolitan Festival Award by the UK Festivals Awards. The award is for “using the existing infrastructure of a town’s venues, this sector is growing thanks to no need for camping, very little threat from the weather and the ability to take place at any time of the year.

Thrill Collins

Thrill Collins is probably the most successful covers band that you’ve never heard of - let’s just say they have a habit of rearranging some of the most epic pop songs of all time, with surprising results.
The band have toured endlessly around the UK, US, Europe and Scandinavia, playing over 500 shows in the last three years. In 2013 they spent yet another summer on the festival circuit taking in Glastonbury, Truck, 2000 Trees, Y-Not, Wychwood, countless jazz and folk festivals as well as two small European tours.
Thrill Collins has recently released their new EP “Our Souls” - a collection of band favourites produced by the legendary George Shilling (James Brown, Blur, Oasis, Frank Turner). This year shows no signs of letting up for the acoustic trio with an almost continuous run of gigs in the calendar ruining the possibility of holiday for anyone in the band.
I love your sound” – Dave Benson Phillips



KSH and the Going Goods

The world of hip hop is a desolate one... With gangsters, players, pimps and g-thangs dominating the scene, the beauty of the genre is being lost. Thats where KSH and The Going Goods step in.


An alternative acoustic band from across the country, coming straight out of the “ghettos” of Cheltenham. KSHnTGG are a five man troupe consisting of string-men Jack Carroll and Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou, vocalists Mikey Doherty and Kishi Allebone, rounded off with a unique drum machine, Beatboxer Kush Cushion.


A fresh a lively feel filled with laughter and banter, this new band is already taking the scene by storm.


KSH & The Going Goods can be considered as the festivals curveball, an acoustic band with a fresh twist. Imagine a mix between Plan B, The Streets and Ed Sheeran. These gents brought the funk, the groove and most importantly the good times!”
