The event follows two previous successful No More Heroes events promoted by Nigel Martin. The two day 2016 bash included Xtraverts, Pussycat and The Dirty Johnsons, East Town Pirates, Dragster, Rage DC and Healthy Junkies.

The 2017 event saw The Xtraverts take the stage at about 1.30pm (yes, in the afternoon!). After a short rendition of ‘Happy Birthday’ by the other band members, Nigel took to the stage as the band crashed through four numbers – old favourite, ‘Police State’, plus both sides of their new single (’21st Century Motorbike’ and ‘Wild Boys, Wild Youth’), before finishing with their classic, ‘Speed’.
