Eden Sessions 2017
This June see Bastille, Madness, Royal Blood and Blondie kick off the 2017 Eden Sessions!
With its magical Biomes backdrop, Eden truly is a unique venue – described by the Evening Standard as ‘The nearest you can get to watching a gig on the moon’.
London indie superstars Bastille released their second studio album Wild World in September 2016 to critical acclaim and a number one spot in the UK album charts, following their acclaimed debut Bad Blood, which also hit the top of the UK charts and was certified double platinum. With support act being the acclaimed London-based producer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Rationale.
Madness are here on Friday 16 June but tickets are SOLD OUT. Taking the stage before Madness will be Backbeat Soundsystem, the much-loved eight-piece reggae band from St Austell.
Royal Blood bring their heavy, hard-edged sound to rock the Eden Sessions on Thursday 22 June!
The Brighton pair caused a major splash with their self-titled, Mercury-nominated, debut album in 2014, with many critics and fans lauding them as the saviours of British rock music. In 2015, Royal Blood won Best British Group at the BRIT Awards, Best Live Band and Best New Band at the NME Awards, Best Live Act at the Q Awards and Best British Newcomer at the Kerrang! Awards. They will be supported by renowned Bristolian riff-ragers Turbowolf, bringing to the Sessions their signature brand of patchouli-drenched punk rock fury.
The following evening sees new wave pop legends Blondie play in Cornwall for the first time since 1999. Best known for their late 1970s hits that bridged punk and disco, the band have just released their eleventh studio album 'Pollinator', featuring tracks written by Sia and Nick Valensi of The Strokes, Charlie XCX and Johnny Marr as well as material written by founder members Debbie Harry and Chris Stein. There will be special guests Dodgy who will be supporting they shot to fame in 1990s with hits including Staying Out For The Summer and In A Room.
