Formed in 2006, The Zone are a Hants (Basingstoke/Fleet) based 4-piece original rock band playing original and catchy riff-laden indie-rock. Powerful guitar riffs combined with solid bass and drums on a carpet of keyboards, The Zone are experienced musicians who have played at many venues around the Home Counties and in 2012 and 2014 they graced Guilfest’s Main Stage. Their high-energy sound borrows from across the spectrum of time and genre, always containing a twist (or two) - think of it as a strange mix of Muse and Red Hot Chili-Peppers whilst Pink Floyd and Cream look on! This year the band have recently released their new album "Foundation" and are looking to play their new material (along with some older favourites) to knock your socks off!
