The Blockheads & The Blackout added to line up!

Traditional English eccentricity at its very best, punk-pop outfit The Blockheads will be performing on the Main Stage, also on Sunday 18th July.  Since releasing their platinum selling album “New Boots and Panties” back in 1977 with the late Ian Drury, The Blockheads have been a regular feature of the UK charts with their own unique brand of satirical ska punk.  A legendary live show that's sure not to disappoint, The Blockheads will be performing some of their greatest tunes such as “Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick”, “Reasons to be Cheerful pt3” and seminal rock and roll anthem “Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll”.  Having recorded with such legends as Sir Paul McCartney, Robbie Williams and Sinead O'Connor, and cited as a major influence by Jamie T and Lily Allen, the band have a true pedigree as a one of the greatest live bands the UK has ever produced. Don't miss them this year at GuilFest 2010.

The Blackout return to GuilFest to headline the ROCKSOUND Cave on Saturday 17th July 2010.  The Post-hardcore rockers have toured the world since their their last appearance at the festival back in 2008, becoming one of only three unsigned bands ever to sell out the London Astoria and winning best Unsigned Band in the Kerrang Readers Polls of the same year.  Since then, the band have signed to rock label Epitaph and achieved 2 number 1 singles in the UK rock and UK indie charts, with “Children of the Night” and “Save Our Selves”.  This band are guaranteed to have the ROCKSOUND cave going nuts on Saturday night at GuilFest.
