♬ The Undercover Hippy ♬

Drum and Bass MC turned singer songwriter Billy Rowan, aka The Undercover Hippy, is definitely not your average singer songwriter. His music brings together soulful vocals, infectious reggae rhythms, and the lyrical delivery of a skilled MC.

Starting out as a solo act in 2007, he has since teamed up with some fantastic musicians and performs as a four piece, mixing guitars, keys, drums, bass, and backing vocals to create a high energy, interactive and highly entertaining live show.

Combining intelligent, provocative lyrics with dangerously catchy hooks and a feel good groove, this is music for the thinking man to shake his arse to. Think Natty meets Eminem…on a protest march…at the Edinburgh Fringe.

♬ Binbag Wisdom ♬

Binbag Wisdom make golden-era Hip Hop that is transformed into clever modern-day observations on society, simultaneously abstract and astute. Driven by the towering delivery of Mc Binbags these guys never fail to get the crowd jumping, and yet there music enters realms much deeper than purely party music.

With intelligent rhymes and a rare knack of being both self assured and self-deprecating their music is equally as powerful when kicking back in the armchair and absorbing their witty realism. Essentially BinBag wisdom achieve what so much modern rap doesn't – original, insightful, playful and banging!

Yorkshire born Captain Hotknives was a bassist in various bands from late teens to early thirties, when a gap between bands inspired a move to doing solo stuff. Unhindered by concepts such as “being able to sing”, or “making words which rhyme”, the first two albums were recorded in the top of a terraced house.

“The Pigeons Told Me to Shoplift” and “Blarneystoner” were then largely given away to random people at the back of pubs, resulting in the beginning of ‘The Longest Slowest Tour wi the most Gaps ever’, which is haphazardly continuing to this day. Tackling subjects such as begging, solvent abuse, pigeon hypnosis, skankin yr nana, the pathetic nature of petty racism and the terrible quality of muffins on trains, the lyrics are improvised stories over simple riffs.

♬ DJ Hiphoppapotamus ♬

Sunshine music for the masses! Exotic flavours, soulful melodies and party beats, DJ Hiphoppapotamus always brings the sunshine no matter what the weather.

The Hippo has created his own unique party vibe by infusing Latin, Caribbean and Afro styles into his tastefully produced selections of Breaks, House, Drum & Bass and Hiphop. His upbeat taste in music is perfect for outdoor, sunny day raving, but producing and collecting such a range of music also makes him a very versatile act. His sets can be tuned to suit all kinds of events, be it at a festival, classy cocktail bar, student event or full blown rave.

FREE before 7pm, £7 after

The venue is open from 10:30am, serving food from 12-10pm.
