Shiiine On launch a new one-day festival at the Genting Arena, Birmingham, on Saturday 8th September 2018, a celebration of Indie and Dance from the late 80s, 90s and beyond on 4 stages both indoor & outdoor, with more than 20 bands, plus after-parties included in the price.
Lining up on the Main Stage will be Orbital performing their 'full festival show', Shed Seven, Happy Mondays, Embrace, performing a special anniversary show of the release of their first album ten years ago are Glasvegas, Black Grape, and Cast. This will be the first time that Shawn Ryder has supported himself with his two bands, Happy Mondays, and Black Grape, sharing the bill. Good luck with the voice, Shaun.
Ticket prices include entry to two after-show parties. In the Main Arena will be an 'official Hacienda aftershow' with Todd Terry, Marshall Jefferson, and Jon Dasilva, while the other afterparty in Forum Live is a Britpop disco featuring Steve Cradock (Ocean Colour Scene), who will be playing "the best of his vast Northern Soul & Motown collection" (which isn't Britpop; yes, I'm confused too).
There's also Steve Lamacq, on the 'In conversation' stage, performing his 'Going Deaf For A Living' show, and Steve "Adj" Atherton relaying tales of his time with the Stone Roses. Somewhere on the bill are also Thousand Yard Stare, Clint Boon (Inspiral Carpets), and Uke2.
