Line up 2019

Saturday 27th July


YES!  They’re back, HEADLINING for 2019!!

StopStop is an energy-fuelled “Metal & Roll” band, categorized as one of the most exciting and entertaining live bands nowadays.

After touring the dirtiest rock clubs, playing the coolest festivals and three albums, StopStop return to Lapstock with a brand new album to keep the craziness going!

Notching up international festivals like Rocklahoma, Ice Rock, SleazeFest, Heat, Godney Gathering, Hard Rock Hell & Legends of Rock, StopStop release their 4th album “Get Selfied“, just to confirm how crazy and far these guys can get!

Pure, raw Rock & Roll is what they do so catch the band at Lapstock on their 2019 European Tour!


The fastest moving ska band in the West is hitting the stage harder than ever before and there’s no
holding them back.

The unstoppable explosion of ska madness that is Skata Tones will have you skanking and jumping
with every beat. Front-man Robbie presents an infectious brand of energetic, original songs that
blend ska & reggae beats, driving bass-lines and blistering guitar chops with crazy brass antics.

Their latest release on CD and Vinyl, A Day At The Fair, captures all the fun of the festival and
throws it at you with gusto!

It’s all about the party, the weekend, the music and the fun.

Skata Tones have a good time ALL the time!

After Party

Euphoric, northern goth-pop trio Twist Helix have been booked to play the Lapstock After Party, kicking off straight after the headliners on Saturday night with a set of high-energy, pop-synths over a  backbone of dance beats!

Twist Helix make accessible poignant, lyrical themes exploring loss of community and urban renewal. The band’s 2018 album Ouseburn (out via Paul Back Music, Spain) has won praise for its joyous and widescreen synth-pop take on the English North.

Their live show is delivered with a compelling urgency by front-woman and lead synth player Bea Garcia as the band dramatically re-imagine the cityscape of their home Newcastle-upon-Tyne, blurring the boundaries between creation and destruction, decline and redemption, hope and despair.

Releases taken from the album have premiered in PRS for Music’s M Magazine, The, Get in Her Ears and Little Indie Blogs. The band have been championed by Amazing Radio Worldwide, BBC Introducing and Spanish National Radio 3.

The band has supported acts such as PINS, Samaris, Avec Sans and Outlya and begin 2019 with tours of the UK and Spain in support of their latest release.


Tuesday Syndicate

Sam Mayo, lead vocals/lead guitar, Kristian Thompson-winn on keyboard/guitar/backing vocals and Nathan Leyland on bass. brought together through a shared passion for surfing and outdoor coastal life. The indie/rock four-piece have been likened to Sherlocks, Mumford and Sons (‘Wilder Mind’ sound), Catfish and the Bottlemen and more.
There is a fervent urgency and determination in their music that not only reflects the emotional potency of their lyrical output, but is also an indication of their desire to be heard by a far wider audience in larger venues.


With over 800 live shows under their belt, sponsorship from international guitar manufacturer FAITH GUITARS and ethical clothing giants THTC Clothing, N.U.M.B. have been support for acts such as Arrested Development, Mica Paris, Peter Andre, Finley Quaye, Frank Turner, The Beat, The Reason, Stooshe, The Dub Pistols, Dreadzone, Transglobal Underground, The Correspondents, Zion Train, Natty, and Akala.
With a catalogue of undiscovered hits, they're Hip Hop cross Reggae, infused with Soul and Ska with a sprinkling of Folk. Think stadium anthem songs, fuelled with countless infectious hooks, beautiful harmonies, fat beats and bass, finished off with conscious raps and an unforgettable live performance...
The name says it all - Never Underestimate Musical Belief.
