Hidden Rooms

Founded originally in 2004 as 'Soft Machine Legacy' this band was a coalition of four long-term 'Softs'. It has since evolved through a number of incarnations, following the sad passing of founder members Elton Dean and Hugh Hopper. The current high-octane lineup tours extensively throughout the world and we are pleased and very proud to welcome them as our festival openers this year.
