Tonight is the relaunch event featuring three heavyweights of cider-fuelled musical mayhem.
The Skimmity Hitchers – if you don’t know about these badger-botherin’ buggers already then where have you been hiding? Scrumpy & Western with a punk edge and outrageous audience interaction.
The Inbredz – They come from Peasedown and there ain’t no cure! Forget Goldie Lookin’ Chain – these 3 dirty boyz tell us how it is down Somerset way with hip-hop tales of STDs, adult breast feeding and the joy of mushrooms. If that sounds like your kind of thing then come join the freakshow!
Palooka 5 – Taunton’s very own apocalyptic surf-psych-garage explosion. Grab a pint, put on your tin helmet and get groovin’ on that dancefloor!
Doors 7.30pm, first band 8pm.
Advance tickets available from the Winch and online for £10.
£12 on the door.
There will also be a small amount of £8 ‘early bird specials’ online if you get in quickly enough!
When we started up Outcider Festival in 2014 there was one band we dreamed of booking. A band who headlined the first ever sold-out Fuelled By Cider event in Bristol and who represented so much of what we are all about. Many obstacles were placed in the way of our dream, but we continued undeterred. We knew we must have them.
A band that talks the talk AND walks the walk. A band that helps its brothers and sisters in times of need and gets shit done. A band that plays punk rock with the skill of master craftsmen, while downing cider like demented pirates. A band that lives thousands of miles away but resides spiritually in the heart of the West Country.
Put aside your playthings and make way for the real deal.
Ladies and Gentlemen, please give a massive Outcider welcome to The Dreadnoughts – our Saturday night headliner for 2017!!!!
We are very excited to release Palooka 5’s debut 4 track EP. Recorded and mixed at FBC HQ by James Pagella.
Dishing up a keg load of fuzzy organ surf psych – with an ‘Apocalpyse Now’ twist – some of you will have been lucky enough to catch them at our events last summer. We have already booked them to play at events in 2017 so get in quick and bag a CD while you still can at…
Mad Dog Mcrea blend a unique mixture of folk rock, pop, gypsy jazz, bluegrass and ‘shake your ass’ music. From self-penned songs of adventure, drinking, love and life, to traditional songs of gypsies, fairies, legless pirates and black flies – Mad Dog never fail to capture their audience with their infectious songs.
In constant demand and having played just about every festival and two-bit, jibe-arsed dive in Christendom, Mad Dog Mcrea are, in every sense of the word, a live, band. Their latest album ALMOST HOME encapsulates that, and so much more.
The famous purple happy bus is fired up and ready for action, and there’s room for you – jump aboard!
Southcider returns for the second year in 2017 on 30th June – 2nd July.
This festival is built upon the premise that people love simple, beautiful things. SouthCider invites you to enjoy the highest quality, original live music in an unpretentious, beautiful working farm environment.
No frills and no cheap thrills necessary. Relax, enjoy the surroundings and become the festival.
Southcider welcomes everyone from near and far to enjoy an eclectic mix of music from established national acts, upcoming talent and the best local artists. Full details of the line-up can be found very soon at www.southciderfestival.com
A range of tickets are available from full weekend (Fri-Sun) to single day tickets, with early bird offers and discounts for under 18s. Our austerity-busting ticket prices mean that you can relax and enjoy the event without selling the family silver! From first-timers to festival veterans, we think that you’ll love the simple, laid-back ethos of this event.
Food and drink are largely locally-sourced, some from the farm itself including Talbot Harris Cider!
Families, well behaved dogs, groups, couples and solo travellers all welcome! Pitch a tent or bring your caravan or camper van.
