The Deltas 6.30 to 7.30pm

The Deltas - Allan, Mike, Steve and Tony - swing like a ‘mother’, groove ‘til the herd returns, improvise at the drop of a hi-hat, and play all the songs that you loved, danced, and sang along to, but, for some reason, you rarely hear on the radio.


They say …. “It's what Creedence would have sounded like if they'd recorded Animals' songs for Stax and been produced by the Rolling Stones”.


We say … “If you love blues, soul, & r’n’b, with a hint of rock for good measure, and would rather chew your arm off at the elbow than listen to yet another cover of Sex On Fire, well it’s your lucky day!”

Écouté 3.45pm to 4.30pm

Long ago, back in a time Myspace was cool and You Tube and Spotify didn't even exist - 5 youthful musicians (see picture) had a dream of starting a band and conquering the world (or at very least the local music scene). For 4 years, melodic pop/rock band Écoutè were a staple attraction on the flourishing Reading rock scene of the early to mid 2000's, regularly playing the top local events to full houses.


Fast forward 13 years, and after 'exploring other musical opportunities' the original 5 members are back together, with their first reunion performance at The Wokingham Festival!


Blue Touch 2.30pm to 3.15pm

Never shy to break away from the formulaic or cliché, Blue Touch are less about a Texas shuffle or waking up this morning and more about getting out, having a good time and enjoying what you do. They have been in existence in a number of guises since 2001 but this line up the one that brings together all the elements needed to ensure they maintain their reputation as one of the top live acts on the blues circuit playing at many festivals and clubs over the years.
