The London leg of the Star Shaped Festival in 2017 was an absolutely joyous experience. The line up was amazing and Sleeper’s return to a London stage for the first time in nineteen years almost took the roof off. In under an hour, My Life Story’s Jake Shillingford turned an almost full venue from casual indifference to a feeling of unity; Space’s Tommy Scott and The Bluetones’ Mark Morriss were on form with great humour. Yes, that was a day to be treasured forever.
Just under a week ago, it was announced that the guys at StarShaped would make a big announcement on Tuesday 13th February. Here at Real Gone, we had a couple of serious hunches with regards to this year’s festival line-up, so we offered those for discussion, alongside a couple of less likely contenders in an ultimate Britpop festival wish-list.
