Heavyweight drum and bass group Pendulum known for their distinctive sound which mixes hard rock and electronic music will be back at Brownstock. They played in the Brownstock Good Shed area in 2011 and absolutely brought the house down. Expect no less from their 2014 live performance.
Deep house music producer Route 94 will also be heading to the Brownstock Good Shed Dance Tent for this year’s Festival. Hi debut single “My love” has had huge commercial success charting at number 1 in three countries during 2014.
Drum and Bass duo consisting of Cameron Edwards and Joe Lenzie will also be appearing in the Good Shed. They have been building up a catalogue of hit singles with “Nobody to Love” topping the UK singles chart earlier this year.
BBC sound of 2014 nominated singer songwriter Chloe Howl will play the main stage at Brownstock 2014. She has already been shortlisted as 2014 Brit Awards critic’s choice. Described by the Guardian as “running on turbo” it is certainly the case that her career has really started to fly. Certainly one not to miss at this year’s event.
Singer songwriter Josh Record will play the main stage. In March 2014, Josh Record released “For Your Love” on Virgin Records. Zane Lowe of BBC Radio 1 made it his “Hottest Record in The World” in February 2014. The Times stated that “Record has a sensational debut album in him”. This debut album Pillars is released in July just ahead of this year’s festival. Undoubtedly he is one to watch.
