On The Main Stage

Hands Off Gretel

Hands Off Gretel are a sassy alt rock/grunge pop band from South Yorkshire, who have built themselves a solid live reputation, for shows that are as visually compelling as they are musically. As one reviewer wrote “If you’re a fan of Gwen Stefani style swagger or Nirvana-esque grunge, then you are going love Hands Off Gretel.”

The band have completed 4 headline UK Tours and played major festivals including Download, Isle of Wight, Rebellion main stage, Camden Rocks Festival, Great British Alternative Festival and headlined Loud Women Festival in London. The band has also toured Germany and the Netherlands.

With a new album on the horizon for 2019, the band have recently released 2 DIY video singles, with both of them winning ‘Track of the Week’ with Classic Rock Magazine. Both tracks also received airplay with Kerrang, Planet Rock, BBC Sheffield Introducing and Sirius FM (US)

“Great Band and a great Track ” Wyatt Wendells Planet Rock

“Energy, chaos, nihilism and debauchery abound, a trip with Hands Off Gretel will leave you spent. A beautifully polished ballet of chaos, costume and drama presenting lyrics that echoes the angst and vulnerability of growing up in 21st century Britain.” Northern Exposure
