After seeing British rock band Yonaka at Sea Sessions, we can't recommend them enough. With a badass lead singer and an album full of bangers, they're ones to watch.

Alt-rock band Inhaler are also on the rise, featuring Bono's son as the lead singer of the indie four-some.

Irish-English rapper Maverick Sabre also adds another level of Irish musicianship to the billing, what a talented man.

Born in Hackney, his family moved to Wexford when he was a youngster and grew up following singer-songwriter rappers like Plan B.
