Compère and Special Guest Band TBC
Formed over a packet of sweet chilli Kettle Chips in one of east London’s dankest basements in 2013, thanks to a clutch of sell-out shows 7-piece digi-soul outfit Cl!ve are now celebrated for their punchy live set. Fronted by the frighteningly synergetic Graham sisters on vocals, and featuring the mysteriously besuited Ajay Ratan and his Whammy Pedal on sax, expect Cl!ve to bewitch you into an unmitigated kinetic trance.
Heman Sheman are a gritty glam funk rock outfit from Manchester as featured in NME, The Guardian and on BBC 6music.
Making her Dalston debut, Louise Ellaway will render Hive an intimate space with her uniquely individual folk-punk-infused warbling
