Powerful and contagious Spanish garage that feeds on the elegance of dandyism, seasoned with the rogue touch of Rock’n’Roll.
Punk rock 77 style, simple, fast, raw and direct. These kids from the south of France know exactly what to do with 3 chords, catchy hooks and plenty of style! They’ve earned their stripes in bands like Les Grys-Grys, Flying Over or The Suzards.

THE JUNGLE DEVIANTS
(introduce the Costume Parade!)
“… yeah yeah we are Chrome Reverse. ” This wild bunch mixes rock’n’roll, surf, garage and r’n’b to maximum effect, producing a 100% kick ass, wild rock’n’roll party!
Hailing from Rennes, the mother city of French garage rock, The Madcaps play smart r’n’b and wild rock’n’roll with catchy melodies and timeless grooves.
The Schizophonics are, in one word, EXPLOSIVE. Their frenzied live performances tap into the same unstoppable combination of rock ‘n’ roll energy and showmanship that fueled the MC5 in their heyday. When they hit the stage, they grab your attention and don’t let go.
THE ELECTRIC MESS
A rip-roaring combination of 60’s Brit band song-craft mixed with the snot-nosed arrogance and too-cool-for-school attitude of U.S. punk!
SUNDAY – ‘PUNK IN THE JUNGLE!
12pm till 6pm
EDWEENA and the BASKERVILLES
Ed Banger formally of The Nosebleeds and Slaughter and the Dogs, a true character of Manchester’s early punk scene, who now goes by the name Edweena, having fully embraced his feminine side, delivers scuzzy, slammed up, budget punk rock backed by the Baskervilles.
Hard rockin’ garage punk mixed with dirty primitive sounds of 60s rock’n’roll makes The No-Things a unique force of nature!
They’re naked, they’re loud, they’re riotous and they want your soul. They are The Parkinsons and they are here to shoot you up with the passion that has been missing from your life for so long and inject the current music scene with a long overdue kick up its saggy arse.
NEIL SICK & CHRIS SICK (Stay Sick Brighton UK)
Chris and Neil Sick are the degenerate Cramps obsessed dynamic duo that make Brighton rock’n’roll with their monthly STAY SICK club nite. These two fully fledged Weird Ohs are guaranteed to get you dancing with their spins, expect to hear sleazy and greasy rock’n’roll from the fifties & sicksties including surf, boppin rockabilly, swingin rhythm and blues and twistin’ tittyshakers, not forgetting a generous serving of primitive garage punk for all you black leather wearing weird-ohs!
DIDDY WAH & FRITZ BUZZSAW (HEAVY SUGAR UK)
DJs Diddy Wah and Fritz Buzzsaw teamed up in 2012 to bring London its wildest new Rock’n’Roll and R&B club night, HEAVY SUGAR.
Diddy Wah is deep into blues, surf, rockabilly, R&B, gospel, garage, soul and rock’n’roll from the 1950s and ‘60s. Just spend a short while listening to his NTS radio show or reading his 45rpm record blog and you will feel his passion for top quality music in its original vinyl form. He has a knack for finding unique tunes that drive dancers wild.
Fritz Buzzsaw runs the Buzzsaw Joint club nights, where you’ll hear an explosive mix of high octane rock’n’roll, trashy surf, tittyshakers, ’60s beats, stompin’ rockabilly and jumpin’ rhythm & blues, all from the wide grooves of 45rpm records. He also curates the dangerously good Buzzsaw Joint Mixcloud site, which features savage mixes created by record fiends around the globe.
CARL COMBOVER (Go-Go Cage UK)
Merseyside maestro Carl is a DJ who has been there and done it! When Carl‘s not promoting his own Liverpool clubnight The Go-Go Cage he can be found behind the kit laying down the beat in one of the best Las Vegas Grind bands around DOKTOR COMBOVER, and if that isn’t enough Carl also delivers the driving beat for THE SHOOK UPS! As for his DJ’n Carl has taken his amazing collection of tunes all around the world including DJ slots at Glastonbury, Born Bad Festival (Paris), Blast-Off Festival (Nottingham) as well as a tour of all the cool haunts in Australia. Carl loves to spin Twangy Surf, Greasy R’n’B, Fuzzy Garage, Soul Shouters, Tough Doo Wop but closest to his heart is blasting out a Titty Twistin’ Stripper Instro and who can blame him!!
JOHNNY ALPHA (UK)
Johnny Alpha is a purveyor of all things trashy, sleazy and raw. Playing a heady mix of greasy instrumentals, balls out rock n roll, fuzz drenched garage, soul r&b and breakbeat. He’s the host of the Killer Diller Radio Show and the man behind both of the outrageously wild and wonky “Blunderbuss” compilations. He started up the infamous Rendez-vous club in his home town of Wigan before going on the join the Go-Go cage team in Liverpool. A veteran of the 60’s scene this man has djed at some of the best festivals in Europe bringing his box of 45 killers to the Ballroom Bash, the Boiler Club, the Funtastic Dracula Carnival, Heavy Sugar, Loud Mufflers, Micca Club and Mojo Work out. He spends way too much time fingering through dusty boxes of records, searching for that elusive sound that only exists in his own mind.
TURISTA BANG BANG (Spain)
The chosen one. This is one’s first thought that comes to mind after entering Barcelona’s A Wamba Buluba Club and seeing him behind the decks. In old times people would’ve said the kid was born for it, but in truth it was the world that put him in his place. Risky promoter, resident DJ and brilliant PR, his sessions are a mix of Rock & Roll, Rhythm & Blues, Soul, Garage, Rockabilly, Exotica and all 50’s and 60’s dance music. During little more than one year he was also the head honcho at the Balambambú Club at Sidecar Factory in Barcelona and was also DJing at the Gonzo Club (Zurich), Bassy Club (Berlin), Heavy Sugar (London), Bootleg Bar and Botanica (NYC). Cutting it short, he’s the son-in-law we all wanted for our daughters. At the Hipsville he won’t be playing at home ground but he’s out to win!
IVAN LE TERRIBLE (France)
Ivan Le Terrible is a stalwart of the French garage and punk scene, running BORN BAD RETRO CLOTHING in Paris, co-owner of the now defunct WILD WILD RECORDS, bass player in 60′s Ye Ye band LES TERRIBLES, snotty French punkers THE NO TALENTS and his latest garage punk band CHROME REVERSE.

DOTTIE GOOSEBERRY A GO GO!
Dottie is a french burlesque performer and 60’s Go Go dancer from Lyon since 2012. She’s inspired by the sounds of French yé yé, surf music, freakbeat, garage punk and all things Go! Go! Since she was a child Dottie loved old horror movies, vintage baby dolls and Russ Meyer’s movies!! These discoveries were enough for Dottie to launch herself into the wild world of burlesque and Go Go dancing. Watch out though as on stage she has the innocence of Lolita, and the savage hunger of a Black Widow!
WANDA DE LULLABIES A GO GO!
Long before The Creature from the Black Lagoon captured and held Wanda captive in his subterranean cave Wanda lived near Grenoble in the French Alps, this is where she first started her dancin’ as a tityshaker! driving the crowd wild on stage at the ‘Beat’n’Burlesque I’ with her scintillating moves and then moving on to shakin’ her hips on stage with the likes of Les Grys Grys and The Sonics. Her love for all things weird’n’wild led her to create her very own exotica stage performances in tribute to the B Movies of 50’s ‘n’ 60’s. Wanda’s passion for surf and trash means there’s plenty of shakin’ and grindin’ to savage rhythms going on in Wanda’s performances. Visit Wanda De Lullabies website here
ALEXANDRA BEAT GIRL A GO GO!
Alexandra Beatgirl is my favourite hip shaker at HIPSVILLE (it goes without saying, Mr A x).
Belgium’s premier Beatgirl Alexandra is a scooter riding, bass playing 60’s chick who loves to Go! Go!
When she’s not speeding around on her Lambretta Alexandra adds the feminine touch playing the bass in her surf instrumental band SPEEDBALL JR or organising the monthly Weirdsville Club Night in London.
When she’s not on stage playing the bass the Beat in this Girl doesn’t stop as she loves to Go! Go! And Alexandra has shaken’ it with the best on stage at top weekends such as The Wild Weekend and Suicide Twist as well as adding some Beatgirl moves on stage for bands such as The Apemen and The Mighty Gordinis. Don’t miss Alexandra the twistin’ Beat Girl at HIPSVILLE.
CÉLIA ALOHA A GO GO!
Célia Aloha will be bringing a taste of the exotic to HIPSVILLE, all the way from Hawaii via Oh la la! Paris, and Oh la la we’re sure you’ll say too as Célia Aloha promises to dazzle you with her exotic wild contortions and amaze you with her passion and ability to shake it all night long! From an early age Célia‘s moves proved too much even for the hip shakin’ Hawaiians, so the South Sea’s loss was Europe’s gain as Célia brought her Pacific passion for shakin’n’shimmin’ to Paris. Since then Célia‘s Go-Go boots have graced many stages and shook it with some of THEE best including The Trashmen, The Staggers, King Salami and The Sonics, as you can see her love for Go-Go has certainly travelled!!
MISS DIABOLIK A GO GO!
A member of The Actionettes, London’s original all-female 60’s dance troupe, Miss Diabolik has shaken and shimmied all over the place from London to Rome, including at the Wild Weekend, Le Beat Bespoke, Blow Up, Da Doo Ron Ron, Ladyfest, Duckie, Gay Shame and Mods vs Rockers, and has shared the stage with the likes of Arthur Lee, Kim Fowley, The Nuns and Holly Golightly. Her love of wild sounds and dynamic dancing is equalled by her passion for bizarro films of the horrific kind. Expect to see her jerking and frugging like a wild caged vixen at Hipsville Seaside A Go Go!
TINA TUNA A GO GO!
Tina Tuna escaped the nets of Norwegian deep sea fisherman and hoisted her way to dry land after overhearing Chuck Berry’s ‘Reelin and a Rockin’ on the ships radio. Once on dry land, there was no tin strong enough to contain her fishy business and her cold blooded gogo moves. There is no descaling this one – a fish out of water and ready to drown herself in music for you at Hipsville!
