Performing Friday 2 September on the Main Stage

Idle Noise are an indie rock quartet from Coventry. The band take influence from a range of artists including The Strokes, The Vaccines and The Enemy. With infectious hooks, stomping choruses and huge stage presence, their performances capture the audience of every show they play.

The last few years have seen them play alongside the likes of Inhaler and The Charlatans, as well as support a range of other artists on shows across the UK. In 2019, they supported Coventry’s own Tom Clarke (The Enemy) at a sold-out hometown show, followed by the band’s own sold-out headline gig at Manchester’s iconic Deaf Institute in January 2020.

Since forming, every track the foursome has released has been championed on BBC Introducing radio and a number of other stations globally, with most also receiving regular airplay on Amazing Radio, resulting in the indie rockers being branded ‘One of the tightest outfits in the midlands right now’.

Idle Noise made a return to live performances in July 2021, following the reopening of the live music industry, with a sold-out hometown headline show before embarking on other dates throughout the second half of the year in promotion of their latest singles ‘Death to Modern Life’ and ‘All Your Love’; the former being immediately added to Spotify’s ‘New Noise’ editorial playlist in the USA upon release.

The band are set to release their next single in May, with more new material due for release throughout 2022, and will play a number of shows across the UK in support of the year’s singles. This run of shows includes their biggest headline to date at Coventry's HMV Empire in June.
