Wychwood Festival, held at Cheltenham Racecourse, announce that The Strypes will be taking to their main-stage. The four-piece Irish rock band started playing together before they were even teenagers, relentlessly gigging around Ireland and quickly becoming the hottest ticket in any town. Taking inspiration from the likes of Elvis Costello, The Stones, The Jam and many more, The Strypes will be debuting their no-nonsense blues repertoire to festival-goers. 

Joining them will be ‘Ones to Watch’ InHeaven echoing the sounds of 90’s grunge as well as debuting tracks such as ‘Regeneration’ and ‘Treats’. BBC Radio 6 Music’s resident poet Murray Lachlan Young will also be on-site with loaded with poem’s on hugely diverse subject matters. The Rajasthan Heritage Brass Band also join the main stage with a spectacular celebration taking to the main stage with vibrant, colourful lifestyle and enchanting beats.
