IT'S fair to say, after the amazing reception part 1 of Festevol had not only on The Music Manual but from the avid music fans who ran down to catch last Saturday's festivities, now, part two is here and my oh my what another feast we have here for you!

Again, one of our contributors, Jake Marley, joined creator, Lauren Jones in providing the final instalment of previews for the last FESTEVOL in The Kazimier.

So sit back and read on, we have chosen a few belters for you...


Coming to our attention this time two years ago, Liverpool quartet, Sugarmen have had an exciting 2015, from being picked as the cream of the crop by Clash's Mick Jones to releasing latest track, Dirt upon Poor Old Soul Records, we're really experiencing just what these four lads can accomplish with sheer dedication, not only to the music, but to each-other.


Recently recording at London Road Studios, Moats are a foursome predominantly based in Liverpool but have members from all around the UK, providing the best scope for their music on the home-front. Their last trip to Liverpool saw them smash up Sound City, now their set may mark their last at The Kazimier. Check out tracks such as Hungry for more insight.

Lying Bastards

Brainchild of local muso, Henry Pulp, Lying Bastards have only recently cropped up in Liverpool, playing gigs with the likes of Clean Cut Kid in London and taking to Leaf for The Music Manual's third birthday celebrations. Their week off will have them well-prepared for their juicy set at The Kaz.


Not much is out there about Liverpool based, AJHD, except the fact they have played extensive gigs for EVOL therefore it seems apt that this spaced-out project says their goodbye to the venue's charismatic persona, in the most fitting way. Tracks such as I'm Alright and Bugarach Blues will prepare you for their futuristic set.#

All We Are

2015 GIT Award winners All We Are take to the stage as one of the star attractions for FestEvol part two, with the gracious dance rhythms radiating from their self-titled debut record. Pleasing your senses collectively whilst sticking in your brain like glue, All We Are are certainly going to provide a set out of this world. Chirpy guitar elements, funky basslines and luscious vocals, quite the cocktail for a synthy, vibrant live performance you won't want to miss.


Getting quite a name for themselves on both the regional and national spectrum with psych-plunged tracks like Tell Me Again and alternative-disco floor-filler, Ocean. This local fivesome are that versatile, many cannot help but gravitate towards their sets. I mean Secret Garden Party, Tramlines and Latitude can't be wrong can they?!


Fronted by Liverpool songstress, Jessie Robinson, Scarlet have been busy gigging away whilst putting the last final pieces together for a debut record. With gigs over the last few months offering snippets of a new-sounding material we've been greeted with past previous EP releases such as, Fishes, which offers more inclination to the likes of The Cranberries.

Natalie McCool

Leading lady, Natalie McCool will be welcomed with open arms to provoke her dark and atmospheric alt-pop rhythms to the forefront for her set at FestEvol. 2015 releases, Oh Danger and PINS have showcased McCool's natural ability to layer pop with an easy listening instrumental, all the while inducing a powerful vocalism within her work.
