MODSTOCK – A CELEBRATION of five decades of Mod since the watershed year of 1964 – will hit London on Easter Bank Holiday weekend. The bash will feature acts ranging from Motown legends Brenda Holloway and The Velvelettes through to Small Faces’ rhythm ace Kenney Jones And Friends via ’79 Mods Secret Affair and latter day groups The Apemen and Les Cappuccino (see below for full line-up details).
As you start dandifying yourself for the weekend, MOJO invites you to dig into this bespoke 30-track Mod-ermost playlist, compiled for your dancing pleasure by Modstock’s Dr Robert, the medicine man who makes the whole world swing…
The full finely-tuned Modstock bill looks like this:
Thursday, April 17: Secret Affair, The Apemen and Squire.

The MOJO-approved four-day freak-out takes place at The Venue (229 Great Portland Street, London W1) between April 17 and 20 and will also celebrate Mod culture in its wider sense with a fashion show, a record fair, an indoor market, a scooter run and a Sunday daytime riverboat party all set to take place over the weekend.
