Mik Artistik’s Ego Trip are genuinely delightful, funny, frightening, and indefinable. Northern rock and roll stand-up comes close.

Mik fixes the audience with his compelling stare, hypnotising and charming them with stories, songs, and poems. Every show is unique as Mik finds a new train ofthought to ride. He connects, chats, breaks the wall between audience and band,creates chaos, plays air-crook lock (!?), and is complimented by exquisite layers of rock, soul, funk, and punk created by Jonny Flockton on electric guitar.

The band are regular Glastonbury favourites since their first appearance in 2007. Many fans don’t consider Glastonbury has started until they’ve attended either Mik’s gig onthe Wednesday afternoon at the Croissant Neuf Bandstand, or the chaos that reigns at Thursday evening’s Rocket Lounge gig. Both are now Glastonbury traditions for many fans.

They have achieved an enviable reputation at many of the major UK festivals, including Latitude, Bearded Theory, Beat Herder, Wilderness,and Beautiful Days. BBC Radio 6 Music have long been playing Mik’s music with Gideon Coe, Chris Hawkins, Shaun Keaveny and Tom Robinson all big fans of the band.

In early 2020 no-less than rock icon and 6 Music presenter Iggy Pop endorsed Mik’s anthem of hope ‘Sweet Leaf of the North’ as his favourite song of the last DECADE!…In his words”…because it’s human, it’s real and it has soul
