With curators this year including artists like Everything Everything, trendsetters like Huw Stephens and festivals like Kendal Calling, there's no doubting that the event will maintain the high standards set by the previous two years.
Here are our five key picks for this year's event:
Peaness - Hailing from Chester, this pop-rock trio may not even have reached the stage of releasing an album just yet, but they've already got more anthems in their arsenal than most bands manage come the death rattle of a successful career.
Paris Youth Foundation - Not quite the Parisian artists that their name promises, Paris Youth Foundation actually hail from the musical nirvana of Liverpool. They've been gigging relentlessly across the North West and you can be sure that their Off The Record set will be one of the most well-attended offerings of the night.
Fizzy Blood - They haven't unleashed an album yet, but Fizzy Blood are already gearing up to release a third EP, the intriguingly titled 'Pink Magic'. Theirs is an eclectic catalogue which veers with schizophrenic volatility between disparate genres. If nothing else, they'll prove wrong those media naysayers who keep insisting that guitar music is dead.
Babe Punch - Describing themselves as frenzied pop punk, Nottingham five piece Babe Punch have spent the past few years touring relentlessly. Among traditional shows, they've also made their way onto innumerable festival bills. Their debut single, 'CONTROL', is an explosive slice of exactly where the band are heading as they work on pulling together a more substantial piece of recorded work.
Childcare - 'Made Simple' is a short but sweet EP which immediately thrust Childcare into the curious glare of the mainstream media. Even before their debut album has seen the light of day, Childcare have managed to sell out headline shows at iconic venues like London's The Lexington and they're a quartet who have bright futures lay ahead of them.
