Star Shaped Festival 2018: Official line-up announced

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.

We were right about Echobelly – a well deserved place for Sonya Madan and company on this year’s bill – and also The Supernaturals [check out our ramblings and theories here].   That said, we would have never thought Black Grape would be a fixture.  That’s something bound to cause some very mixed feelings…  Ocean Colour Scene, on the other hand, are a perfect fit for the festival, especially if the friendly vibe of the London 2017 event is anything to go by.

This year’s London event will be at Brixton Academy (rather than the arguably more comfortable Kentish Town Forum) on September 29th.   The full line up is revealed in the poster below.
