17:45 - 18:30
mighty Sasquatch
Band
Venue: Marquee

Once upon a time we were LSS or otherwise know as LiveSexShow. We had a Naked Dave and lots of hilarity ensued. Then we grew up (a little) and decided to become teenagers aged 30-40. We love to play 90's rock, love to jump around and we love to see people dancing to all the rock tunes they grew up listening too. We're going to play all the classic tunes that other bands are too scared to play ! We'll swear (sometimes) and Sam will throw himself around like a loon, the rest of us will keep the band tight, the tunes loud and give you the best gig you've seen in years. We don't play every week as we need our rest, but when we play, boy do we play. Come and say - only Jay bites. Matt - Rhythm Guitar - the Posh One, Sam - Vocalist - The Jumpy One, Jay - Lead Guitar - The Left Handed One, Nick - Bass Guitar - The Musical one, Mark - Drums - The Noisiest one

19:00 - 19:45
Sunset Sunday
Pop punk/alternative rock - band
Venue: Marquee

So good we had to have them back. Sunset Sunday are a young pop punk & alternative rock band from the surrounding area of Taunton. With the likes of bands such as Jesus Jones and Ashestoangels, these four teenagers have come very far since their beginnings as a 3-piece in 2014. Sunset Sunday kicked off 2015 with a bang, releasing their debut studio album, Independent Sensitivity live on 10Radio, followed by summer full of over 20 shows to play. The band's music is similar to that of Green Day, Nirvana, Foo Fighters, NOFX, Sum 41, Gnarwolves and others. The name Sunset Sunday comes from that time (Sunday evening) being the last few hours of the weekend, knowing that you have to get up for another week of school early the next morning. The band are currently in the studio working on their second album, Not Just A Phase.

20:15 - 21.00
Palooka 5
60's surf garage music - Band

Palooka 5 play 1960s surf/garage music using original vintage equipment. Their sound puts raw twist on surf/garage classics by Dick Dale, Link Wray, The Ventures and The Sonics and with a few originals tunes for good measure.

Rock n Roll - Cut to the Bone #the Surfer’s Choice Their line up is… Tim Baigent: Vocal - Guitar Bethan Baigent: Vocal - Percussion Alex McCallum: Hammond Organ Henry Payne: Vocal - Bass Steven Bide: Drums

Crinkle Cuts
Tantric funk - Band
Venue: Marquee

These guys deserve the headline slot this year. Fresh with a capital PH, Crinkle Cuts deliver you a blasting of tantric funk, smooth reggae and new-wave latin ska woven together in a bombastic psychedelic tapestry of good vibes for an eccentric, exotic and eargasmic live performance.

The Experimental
- band
Venue: Marquee

The Experimental are a three piece indie-rock band from the musical hotbed that is South Devon. Soaring vocals and beautiful rock harmonies, underpinned by Joe Billingham's driving bass lines and Chris Firrell's tom-laden drums are at the heart of their songs, which burst with energy almost as much as their scary-eyed (ex Vitriolic/Stephenson’s Rocket) front man and guitarist Darren Curnow does! Fresh off the back of their debut EP launch, the boys are delighted to be back at Wigfest for the second time.
