Rock Oyster today unveiled the legendary Sugababes and Bombay Bicycle Club as the first two headliners of next summer's 2024 edition.


Sugababes are firmly cemented as one of the most successful British girl-bands of the 21st Century with six Number One singles including Round Round and Push The Button, millions of global sales and multiple multi-platinum albums. Along the way they told one of the most spectacular stories of the modern pop era. Fast forward two decades, the original line up of Mutya Buena, Keisha Buchanan and Siobhan Donaghy have reunited in full force to the delight of fans, and Rock Oyster is super excited to welcome Mutya, Keisha and Siobhan as this year's Saturday night headliners.

Hailing from North London, Bombay Bicycle Club burst onto the scene with their 2009 debut, I Had The Blues But I Shook Them Loose. Comprised of singer/ guitarist Jack Steadman, guitarist Jamie MacColl, drummer Suren de Saram, and bassist Ed Nash, the band initially formed while at University before becoming one of the biggest British guitar bands of the past decade. Fresh off their brand new top ten record with features from Chaka Khan, Damon Albarn, Holly Humberstone and more, we're delighted to welcome them to Cornwall.

Fresh from her appearance on Graham Norton last Friday, get set to welcome rising Irish star Ciara Mary-Alice Thompson (aka CMAT) to Rock Oyster next Summer. CMAT has already scored two number one albums in Ireland and with huge things expected over the next year, she's not to be missed.

Also joining next year's spectacular bill is Billie Marten who first came to prominence at the age of twelve, before signing with Sony at just fifteen years old. A decade on, Billie is still forging her own incredible musical path, releasing her beautiful top ten album Drop Cherries earlier this year.

Making a warm return to the Camel Estuary next year is London via Leeds 8 piece Gentleman's Dub Club. Elsewhere on the bill, Rock Oyster have announced A.Skillz and blues rockers Wille and the Bandits.
