Dave’s Stage (Main Stage), Friday 2023
Republica are back and have been very active recently. They released their highly acclaimed new EP Christiana Obey and promoted it with a sold out UK tour and selected European festival appearances including the prestigious Isle Of Wight Festival, Norway’s Midnattsrocken Festival, The Welsh GB Rally and Hanover’s Ferryman Festival in Germany.
Republica dominated the charts in the Nineties – the band’s iconic and fiery front woman, Saffron, Tim Dorney (keyboard) and Johnny Male (guitar) rode the Britpop wave of female-fronted rock bands like Sleeper, Elastica, Garbage and Lush, injecting it with their self-dubbed
techno-pop, punk rock sound.
