Raleigh Ritchie, Lonely the Brave, Eliza and the Bear and DZ Deathrays are just a few of the rising stars announced to perform at Underground Festival 2014.
The hugely popular event returns to Gloucester Guildhall for the fifth year running on Saturday September 27 and Sunday September 28 with doors opening at 4.30pm each day.
Underground has become renowned for featuring the 'next big things' in music, with alumni including Bastille, George Ezra, Pulled Apart by Horses, The Joy Formidable and Mallory Knox who have all gone on to make serious waves in the music industry.
Topping Saturday's exciting lineup this year is Raleigh Ritchie. Fans of the phenomenal Game of Thrones will recognise Raleigh, who plays Grey Worm, the leader of the unsullied army. However, it's music where the RnB sees his future heading and you will have already heard his songs all over Radio 1. Catch him at the Guildhall before he goes stratospheric.
Sunday's bill is headlined by the incredible Lonely the Brave. They burst onto the scene at the start of the year with their single Trick of the Light and have recently signed an international record deal with Columbia Records (home to the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan and Kasabian). Their first album drops on September 1 and you can be sure their number one fan Zane Lowe will be all over it.
Dan Charles , Programming and Marketing Manager at Gloucester Guildhall ,said: "We are so excited about the lineup for this year's festival. Booking Raleigh Ritchie and Lonely the Brave as headliners is a real coup and we're delighted to have them at Underground.

"There is literally something for everyone this year, regardless of your music tastes."
Elsewhere on the lineup we have the likes of Eliza and the Bear, whose anthem Friends featured on a Sky Movies advert, and the lads are heading out on a UK headline tour in September and October. Aussie duo DZ Deathrays have been busy this year with festival appearances aplenty including Reading and Leeds. Instrumentalists Brontide return having just released their second album, while Scottish synth pop band Prides are currently touring across the Atlantic before heading back for a summer of fun on the European festival circuit.
Bands Fickle Friends, As Elephants Are and The People the Poet have all been predicted huge futures and have already made great strides in the industry.
If acoustic music is more your flavour, we have Saturday's second stage headliner Sivu, who has notched up thousands of hits on Youtube, and rising star Fred Page whose vocal talents are sure to be a highlight. However, if you prefer you music raw and heavy why not check out God Damn and Brawlers? If folk floats your boat, The Bronze Medal and Dancing Years should be etched in your schedule.
