Colorado River

An energetic country acoustic trio, Colorado River have already played at many local events. They embraced the new age of country music by performing unique takes on different songs. Their inspiration comes from other country artists such as Colter Wall and Chris Stapleton.


Ellie Chadwick

Ellie is a 19-year-old singer and pianist from Newbury, currently studying music at university. In her spare time she teaches and gigs, but would like to pursue a full-time music career once her studies are complete.


DJ Mzouri

Adam Mzouri is a half English, half Moroccan DJ from Newbury, who performs under the artist name of MZOURI. Hosting the official Afterparty, he really got the crowd going after a great day of racing!
