Pop/rock band The Lightyears grew up in Goring, and played their earliest gigs in the village hall, the Morrell Rooms and St Thomas’ Church. Since then, they have gone on to tour the world, performing at Wembley Stadium and Glastonbury Festival, releasing a record with Sting’s producer and sharing a stage with members of Queen and The Who. They have also appeared in a T-Mobile advert and been named Best Pop/Rock Act at the UK Indy Awards.
The Lightyears will be supported by Haize, one of Reading’s hottest new bands.
Haize’s name has been coming up a lot lately in discussions about Reading’s emerging music scene and for good reason – the band formerly known as Laguna are snapping at the toes of Sundara Karma and The Amazons and we expect big things from them in 2016.
Haize have been backing up their effortlessly cool sound with fantastic live shows in 2015. Their premiere track, Solar, received plenty of attention and airplay and the band’s closeness with the Thirsty Network and Two Step has helped them find a good platform for their sound.
Definitely expect these guys to continue to find success in 2016.
