Electro.  Metal.  Punk.  Dance.  Goth.  Pop.  Rock.  Glam.  These are just selection of the genres that have been thrown together and bandied around in a variation of confused combinations, each attempting to venture a fitting definition of My Passion.  That’s all very well, except My Passion is not a band that can easily be described in one handy introductory sentence.  With an eclectic mishmash of musical styles being showcased in their music, this is undoubtedly a band that is best experienced live to be completely understood.  Yet there are those out there that think they’ve got My Passion figured out and pigeon-holed into a genre that their music far surpasses.   Never has the age old idiom ‘don’t judge a book by its cover’ been more appropriate… read more

For a band famed for their boundless energy and enthused live performances, An Acoustic Evening with Jaret & Erik is quite a stripped-down affair for Bowling For Soup. With a stage set consisting of living-room furniture and support from equally unplugged acts (two of which featured Jaret and Erik themselves), this feels more like a night with friends passing around a guitar than a show…Read More.

Introducing stage will feature Blitz Kids, Lower Than Atlantis, Don Broco, Rio, Basement, Summerlin, Lost Boys and The Famous Class. Like last year, the opening slot for the Kerrang!
