London Ska-Punk, Millie Manders & The Shut-up are coming to The Forum in 2024!
With festival appearances such as Boomtown, Slam Dunk, Rebellion and Kendal Calling, this isn’t one to sleep on.
With lyricism that pokes fun, draws you in or leaves you questioning social norms teamed with incredible vocal dexterity, grinding guitars, irresistible horn hooks and a pumping rhythm section, the Millie Manders Music Machine churns out more raw punk fusion than you can shake a stick at, with a huge amount of Pop appeal. “Watch this space” is a term very much worth it’s salt when considering the hype surrounding Millie Manders. Her live shows are electric and her songs infectious.

Support from Voodoo Radio:
Cumbrian power pop-punk pair VOODOO RADIO consisting of singer/drummer Paige and guitarist Tony, unleashed their debut 10” mini-album POP PILLS – a collection of eight self-penned, and deliciously infectious two-and-a-half minute pop songs of pure relentless, raw power out on Holy Dotage Records in 2022.
The duo started rocking the tunnels of Leicester Square tube station, London in 2018, stopping commuters and tourists alike in their tracks with a mesmerising ‘summer of 76’ power-pop sound. Tony, a seasoned performer was inspired by hearing Slaves on the radio and suggested to young Paige: “get two shoe boxes, anything that’s like a drum stick – a table knife and a wooden spoon and see if you can sing and play rhythms whilst hitting a beat” – Paige certainly could and Voodoo Radio were manifested.
