Oscar released his debut album ‘Cut & Paste’ earlier this year, before heading off on a tour of Europe, including dates in the UK.

Review: Oscar – ‘Cut And Paste’

Brighton newcomers Black Honey’s frontwoman Izzy B Phillips recently said of touring to NME: “Imagine being locked inside your house for six years, then you’re suddenly allowed to go out, and you’re like, ‘Oh my God! What is the world? Where are we?!’ That’s what we’re like about just getting out on the road.”

Self described as “quintessentially a British rock band,” they are influenced by The Beatles and Lou Reed.

Last year’s event saw appearances from The Bohicas and Vant. In previous years Superfood, Wolf Alice and Peace have all performed at the event.

Film director Michael Winterbottom recently made Wolf Alice the subject of his new movie.

On The Road followed the band on tour and is described as a “refreshingly unusual” tour film.

Winterbottom’s previous films include 24 Hour Party People about Factory Records boss Tony Wilson, and he also directs Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon’s mock travelogue series The Trip.

The description for On The Road says: “Michael Winterbottom joined the band on the road, capturing 16 different gigs and daily life backstage. Winterbottom’s resulting tour film – which records the tour from the point of view of a new member of their crew – is a refreshingly unusual one with unexpected twists; it reveals the relentless, sometimes unglamorous graft of playing live, night after night. But the film also mesmerises, offering a structure that reveals more, at every stop on the road.”
