Deep in the Hidden Valley, we’ve been working hard to pull together some very special additions to the line-up, giving you a shiny horizon of musical motivation as we enter spring…
Our first group needs no introduction, The Skints are legendary for their fusion of reggae, ska and hip hop. If the smooth sounds of jazz with an edge of rockabilly are more your flavour, the feisty Imelda May is going to wow you with her truly unique vocals.
To keep your feet moving as we enter the night, we present Jaguar Skills, famous for his stunning mixes of genre crossing sounds and his mysterious absence of identity. Meanwhile, icon of the London club scene, Goldie will be giving us a chance to see why his renowned label Metalheadz has recently earned him an MBE and from the not so far away land of Bristol, is My Nu Leng to mesmerise us with a blistering set and dark, smouldering vibes.
Over in Laughing Stock we’ve picked the cream of comedic talent to get your sides-a-splittin’. Henning Wehn, German comedy ambassador to the U.K and hilarious TV regular skewers the British way of life with aplomb. He’s joined by one half of Lee and Herring and star of BBC2s ‘Fist of Fun’ the stellar Richard Herring plus the outlandish and eccentric funny man Phil Kay.
Other heavy weight acts we’ve handpicked for you include Buster Shuffle, a cockney ska band with a rock and roll twist, The Lounge Kittens, a charming and cheeky trio, will a unique take on tunes that span genres from jazz to metal. We’ve also got a band known for their gorilla get up, The King Kong Company, who’ve been likened to the heavy bass sounds of Dreadzone combined with the hypnotic rhythms of The Chemical Brothers.
Plus hip-hop heavyweights SIKA studios return to The Bullpen with a tasty urban music line up topped off with the likes of Klashnekoff and Devilman, Tribe of Frog announce their headliners OOOD and Illegal Machines and The Blast return to The Bullpen bringing with them the likes of Sir Spyro and President T.
