It's a really well organized event, curated by people who love music” (Ian Camfield, Xfm).

TEN CITY NATION “A very exciting prospect indeed.” (Rock Sound). Intense punky live blast of brilliance with spiraling feedback. Download their entire catalogue for free fromhttp://www.tencitynation.com
NACIONAL: Hailed the “ up-beat Joy Division with Wedding Present comparisons”. Soaring riffs, punching rhythm and lovelorn, poetic diatribe. “I suggest you investigate, before they drop what promises to be an ace debut album." (BBC Radio 1 Scotland)http://www.myspace.com/wearenacional
JEAN-GENIE (Resonance FM/Kooba Radio) One woman powerhouse, presenter of Panda Power and more http://www.myspace.com/jeangeniegraham
PLAYHARD - Rock n roll events featuring the best music with a debauched party vibe.http://www.facebook.com/Heathertheminx
City Showcase has a proven record of spotting emerging talent early: Gallows, Amy Winehouse, We are the Ocean, Keane, Razorlight and Kate Tempest among them. Rocklands started with seminal My Passsion, Bloc Party, Hatcham Social, Art Brut etc. What a combination. Watch this bill go!
