Rock The Ocean’s Tortuga Music Festival has added legendary rockers DOOBIE BROTHERS to its already stellar music line‐up joining headliners KENNY CHESNEY and ZAC BROWN BAND.  Doobie Brothers’ four‐time Grammy Award winning sound has become part of America’s musical firmament, sampled on dance records, reinterpreted on “American Idol” and a fixture on radio  formats from Top 40 to classic rock. With the release of their new record Southbound, a collaboration  with the top country stars of today, including a version of their classic hit “Black Water” featuring Tortuga headliner Zac Brown Band, they are breaking new creative ground in the exploration of their musical connection with Nashville.

Starting with BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, the band that was formed in 1998 by frontman Zakk Wylde, who also played with Ozzy Osbourne!   The American Quartet Black Label Society are far from newcomers on the metal scene, during their 15 years as a band, they have received accolades from the Revolver, Kerrang!, Metal Hammer and toured all over the world.

Consisting of Felix Buxton and Simon Ratcliffe, BASEMENT JAXX are the BRIT and Grammy Award winning,  transatlantic chart-toppers, that have been at the forefront of dance music for the best part of twenty years. With a back catalogue to rival anyone, they have churned out classic after classic including ‘Fly Life’ to ‘Red Alert’, ‘Romeo’ to ‘Jus 1 Kiss’, ‘Jump N Shout’ to ‘Where’s Your Head At’, amongst others. 2014 witnessed the release of their seventh studio album and the return of their much loved live act, culminating in a triumphant homecoming show at a sold out O2 Arena.

           We are looking forward to bringing the extra dimensional, super-cosmic vibrations of the full Jaxx live show back to South London on the August Bank Holiday weekend. Come and join us on Clapham Common at South West Four - Basement Jaxx

And homecoming is the name of the game here as BASEMENT JAXX take the two mile trip from Brixton to Clapham Common for their long awaited South West Four debut on Sunday 30th August. Prepare to lose your minds as the Jaxx show SW4 why the wait has been worth it. Make sure you’re a part of it.

Following an incredibly busy year of shows in support of their debut record Hard Feelings, Major League has returned with a sophomore album that defies any pre-conceived notions and defines their next evolution as a band. With guitarist Brian Joyce now helming vocal duties, backed by Matt Chila (guitar/vocals), Kyle Bell (bass) and Luke Smartnick (drums), the band emerges with a new sense of identity, a renewed focus and an abundant amount of energy for their most personal recording to date.

The last of the 90 artists that will be playing at this year's Sweden Rock Festival have now been confirmed!

Their occult but highly accessible hard rock and strong image have quickly made GHOST one of the biggest bands in Sweden at the moment. At the time of their last Sweden Rock Festival visit, their career was in its infancy. Now they return to perform at a substantially bigger stage - and at night, naturally!
