Tigmus is proud to bring you Yam Tam Tethera, a new Free-Entry one-day festival, with:

Bright Works A consummate non-pop quartet from Oxford playing the finest upbeat rowdy rousing tunes.

"they twist plucky tunes in clever ways, distorting catchy riffs into odd timings and cutting them up ... The anger of disco-punk dance number Sikhism and energy of closing number Houses" - Oxford Mail

Slate Hearts "Slate Hearts lead the local grunge revival charge, sounding impressively like T-Rex if they’d grown up in Nirvana’ basement in the early 90s." nightshiftmag

"Slate Hearts impress with their unashamed grunge: unashamed in that they sound" -nightshiftmag

Self Help Self Help formed in 2016 backstage at the O2 Academy Oxford when Silke and Danny first met. A shared love of punk, indie and live music lead to a practice the following week, and a gig the week after! Originally called Din Twins and making a bloody racket as a duo the pair enlisted the help of Sean on guitar and Lizzie on bass and the Self Help family was complete

"Wacky garage pop of the highest lo-fi calibre, as if Plastic Bertrand and Jilted John had a love child that was brought up by The Modern Lovers" - Nightshift Magazine, 2017

FLATLANDS - band Flatlands combine the melodic world of modern British indie with the dance punk vibes of West Coast USA. Influences include, Modern Baseball, Remo Drive, Circa Waves and Will Joseph Cook.

“The high octane rock intro brings to mind Los Campesinos … the adventurous scope of Provisional Licence bodes well for the group” - puremzine “A spellbinding first Sofar” -Sofar Sounds Winchester

Echoic ECHOIC are a young and exciting Alt-Rock quartet from Reading, UK.

"Echoic are ones to watch" - BBC Radio 1 "100% Unique, absolutely amazing" - Alex Baker, Kerrang!

Holly Redford Jones Holly will be playing a solo show - featuring songs from her recently released debut EP "The Future"!

Hazey Jane Hazey Jane are an English folk-indie quartet from London. Hackney based, harmony driven and easily confused, the band are indebted to Nick Drake, CSNY and John Prine. From such artists, Hazey Jane have derived their own bona fide craft of songmanship, exhibited most poignantly throughout their recent EP, 'Us on a Wire'. Recorded at Urchin Studios, Dalston, and produced by band confidants Mr Sander Van Laere (Michael Kiwanuka) and the right honourable Marcel Van Limbeek (Tori Amos).

“What matters in Folk music is the story and Hazey Jane deliver that in spades” - Ear To The Ground Music
