It’s beginning to hot right up down at Love Summer HQ, if you had told us a few years ago we would be booking performers at all the different levels we are, we never would have believed you. Here’s some of the Headline Acts we have on our stages at Love Summer Festival 2018.
A great example of a Band that really delivered for us in 2017 is Suburban Symphony, they made a 600 round mile trip to make their debut in the Devon fields at Love Summer Festival 17. Tony Edwards ex front man of Torquay band Pipeline brought his new band Giz,Sam,Tom and Lewis down from there Lancashire base to play on the SuperSonics main stage on Saturday night. The Penultimate band on the bill took to the stage at 10pm and did not disappoint. Their support who traveled with the band to the festival were leading the charge at the front, even in the sound check the band and crowd were bouncing off each other. Local super fan Gladys was overcome with emotion and invaded the stage, it most of took her back to her Bay City Rollers days. The 40 minute set seemed to be over very quickly finishing up with their new release ‘Stepping Stones’ out now on Hilltown records #upthesymphony We really cannot thank you enough, what a gig!. Here’s a few “snaps” our Photographer James Hitchcock took.

After only a few months of writing and rehearsing, Sitting Pretty were offered their debut Live Gig in April 2014.. Supporting Ocean Colour Scene and Paul Weller Guitarist, Steve Cradock, as part of his Solo Tour .. Followed promptly by a handful of Festival appearances across The South West, Including The Cider Festival at Plymouth’s Largest Music Venue, Plymouth Pavilions, all with amazing feedback. 2014 was wrapped up perfectly, by supporting John Power (Cast/The La’s) as part of his acoustic tour.
2015 seen Sitting Pretty become a regular fixture on the local music scene, a great achievement for an Original Band (as the local scene is predominantly made up of cover bands). As well as returning, by request, to a number of Festivals played the previous year.
The Experimental are a three piece indie-rock band from the musical hotbed that is South Devon.
Soaring vocals and beautiful rock harmonies, underpinned by Joe Billingham’s driving bass lines and Chris Firrell’s tom-laden drums are at the heart of their songs, which burst with energy almost as much as their scary-eyed (ex Vitriolic/Stephenson’s Rocket) front man and guitarist Darren Curnow does!
The band released their debut EP ‘Control’ on April 3rd 2017.
