Don’t Forget Rupert

Indie rockers Don’t Forget Rupert hits you with catchy hooks and feel good vibes that nod towards Panic! at the Disco. They opened the festival in 2018.

An alternative rock band hailing from Nottingham with infectious energy and catchy hooks that have every crowd dancing and singing along from the first song, known for their eccentric almost theatrical shows.

Don’t Forget Rupert have had an explosive few years making their mark in a very short space of time. With features on BBC Radio 1, sold out shows at some of Nottingham’s most prolific venues such as Rock City, Rescue Rooms and Bodega as well as festival appearances at Splendour, Dot to Dot and Beat the Streets.

Throughout 2019, they continued to grow at an exponential rate.

In April they headed out on their first UK tour hitting 5 major cities, building new fans along the way whilst giving some existing fans an opportunity to see them live for the first time! It saw the release of 3 new singles and their most recent EP ‘Bloom’.

Whether you’ve followed them from the beginning, or you’ve just discovered them, sit tight, 2020 is going to be a BIG year.
