We are delighted to announce that It Bites have been selected as the second headliner for the Summers End Festival at the Robin, Bilston on 15th and 16th September


The band were formed in the early 80s, and are best known in the UK for the 1986 hit single “Calling All the Heroes” from their debut album “Big Lad in the Windmill”.  Two further studio albums and a live album followed, cleverly mixing pop with prog and hard rock, before the band called it a day in 1990. They reformed in 2006 to a rapturous reception, with guitarist / vocalist John Mitchell (Arena / Kino) replacing founder member Francis Dunnery.


We are pleased to welcome the band as our Sunday night headliner, after a superb acoustic set from keyboard player John Beck and John Mitchell at the festival in 2006.


Other bands playing so far:


Pain of Salvation  (Sweden) Saturday Night Headliner

Solstice (UK)

Also Eden (UK)

Yesterdays (Hungary)

Abarax (Germany)

Tinyfish (UK)

Whimwise (UK)


3 further performers remain to be announced.


Further details including a pre-show event, and the festival schedule will be announced shortly.  Ticket sales are expected to commence in the next few days.
