Natural Tendency - Strummerville DIY

Born in the heart of the vibrant bristol music scene, euphoric rock five-piece Natural Tendency explore a new direction in rock music and bring it to life in a unique way.

Natural Tendency formed when vocalist/songwriter Ed Taylor began studying at the Bristol Institute of Modern Music alongside other musicians such as Steve Sparrow of Morning Parade. Their recent self-titled mini-album, with production & engineering provided by Adam “Nolly” Getgood of US djent rockers Periphery, showcases their maturity and diversity in songwriting. Further to that, the band soon made a name for themselves on the live circuit, completing gigs in Bristol and all around the South West. These include recent support slots with legendary British band InMe at the Swindon Furnace and grime star Tinchy Stryder at this year’s Youth For Youth Festival in Bristol, and a sell-out release show for the mini-album at the Bristol Cooler.

Outside of Natural Tendency its members have found other musical successes, with Bec Jevons (synth/guitar) joining The Blue Aeroplanes, who’s recent ventures have included a live session on BBC 6Music & UK tour.

Natural Tendency completed their first UK tour earlier this year, which began with a main support slot for Spin Doctors at a sold-out Bristol Fleece. The band were featured in Kerrang! Magazine to promote this.


ARCHIVE 45 – a four piece old school punk band from Portsmouth – this band ooze the punk rock ethic – all original material written from the soul the only way they know – finally release there first single – Your Not the Man & Brixton Riots – available at the festival from the campfire Stage.

Happy Birthday Joe

Gone but not forgotten.

Your flags we keep flying,

And your legacy of hope and freedom

Your wise words – we try to heed them,

In campfires and concerts and in the hearts of those who need them.
