Shiiine On are delighted to announce the latest acts to play the 2019 Weekender this November. The 3 day indoor festival which takes place at Butlin’s Minehead Arena is a celebration of Indie and Dance Music from the sub cultures which brought together the masses in the 80’s, 90’s and beyond.
All packages for the Weekender include 3 nights’ accommodation on site at the resort.
Leading the way are Scottish Indie cult hero’s Idlewild who play the Weekender on the back of the release of their 8th studio album ‘Interview Music’.
Famously described in their early days by the NME as sounding like ‘a flight of stairs falling down a flight of stairs’, Idlewild’s marriage of punk rock, poetry and Highland spirit saw them grow from a raucous cult curiosity into chart-bothering national treasures with their huge hits ‘You Held The World In Your Arms’, ‘Rosability’, ‘American English’ and ‘A Modern Way Of Letting Go’.
They will play the Main Stage Saturday alongside Embrace, Steve Mason and Turin Brakes.
Also joining the bill is the one and only Jim Bob. Having recently played a sold out show at Shepherd’s Bush Empire, the Carter (USM) frontman will be performing an EXCLUSIVE ‘30 Something’ set followed by an encore of Carter classics. This is not one to miss…
Supergroup ShadowParty will also be heading to Minehead also. Boasting members of New Order, Devo, Marion and Bad Lieutenant in their ranks the band released their debut album in 2018 to critical acclaim.
There will also be a performance from Cold Water Swimmers, the new group formed by former Dub Sex and The G-O-D front man Chris Bridgett. One of the finest up and coming bands in the country, Ivory Wave also join the bill following recent support slots with DMA’s whilst Babyshambles man Adam Ficek and up and coming Liverpool artiste Tracky are also confirmed.
Back by popular demand are The Clone Roses. Undoubtedly the best Stone Roses tribute band about, their electric live show is as good as the real thing.
A host of club nights are also announced including Absolute Radio’s Andy Bush’s Indie Disco, the legendary Birmingham night Menangarie, Spinout Review and Northern Soul Rave Patrol.
With a whole host of new acts still in the pipeline to be announced this is lining up to be the best Shiiine On Weekender yet. Over the coming weeks we will also be announcing more live acts, cinema screenings, pool parties, club nights and exhibitions .
With the Shiiine On Weekender selling out in each previous year, you are advised not to wait too long to reserve your place. Our deposit scheme remains open where you can reserve your place for just £25pp.
