Ipswich Music Day

Line Up


Gasoline Green are a four-piece all-original alternative and experimental indie rock outfit based in Colchester. They released their second album in March 2024 and consist of Tyler Baker on guitar and vocals, Oliver Waller on keys, Olly Hall on bass aand Zeb Wiseman on drums.


Fusing folk poetry with pop hooks and a heavy rock punch, Gabrielle Ornate embodies female empowerment and deep introspection. Always with an enchanting message for the subconscious, Gabrielle’s unearthly vocal takes command of the maximalist soundscape.

13:30  |  RUDE & RECKLESS

Energetic 6-piece local band playing ska and reggae tunes we all know and love. Rude and Reckless are well known locally and afar, having played many festivals and events.

14:30  |  BRIDGET

Essex’s grunge powerhouse Bridget effortlessly commands audiences with her electric stage presence. Her distinctive vocal growl and punk-fuelled singles have featured on BBC Radio 1’s Introducing Rock & Total Rock.

15:30  |  RAD PITT

Hailing from Britain’s oldest city, Colchester’s Rad Pitt have stayed true to their founding ethos since 2015: play fat riffs and keep it DIY. Throughout their time together, they’ve churned out three albums and played shows each individual member only dreamed of playing before the band began.


Elephant Jane formed from the sleepy town of Harwich and woke with a start in 2016! Known for riff driven, satire given, drum thumping tunes! Elephant Jane are energy incarnate when live and engage with their audiences on a social and personal level.


A rising name in the alternative scene, Ipswich-based trio Back to the Point bring energy and a feel-good factor to their shows. In 2023, their single ‘Tattooed Minds’ received air play on BBC Introducing Suffolk.


welcome to dinnerladyyy. we are losers. we were lost. you don’t know us but we invite you. born from the cold recesses of a disused Co-op warehouse and baptised at Beyond the Music Festival 2023. we clawed our way out from the primordial sound to make groove coated electric punk pop. We are still discontented.
