Doves’ success saw them soar without showy antics or bombastic interviews, instead letting their swooping, bittersweet anthems speak on their behalf, conquering festival stages and the charts with four hit albums and a string of classic singles, including There Goes The Fear and Black and White Town.  

Jimi Goodwin, Andy and Jez Williams have been playing together since their school days, and that easy-going camaraderie, coupled with a knack for timeless melodies, transformed heartache into panoramic sing-alongs.

Given the rapturous response to the announcement that the band’s open-ended hiatus has come to an end, it’s clear that music fans can’t believe their luck and has set an optimistic course for what lies ahead. 

Savour Doves’ cherished songs as they make their welcome return to the Summer Series stage.

Doves, There Goes The Fear


Founder of influential duo Factory Floor, Gabe Gurnsey has been a key part of the alternative and electronic underground for over a decade.

Following time spent living and recording in London and Los Angeles, Gurnsey released his debut album Physical this year on Erol Alkan's label Phantasy. Produced in conjunction with Alkan himself, it’s a sensational, futurist dance pop record and seamlessly shifts his sound away from the stripped back aesthetic of Factory Floor.
