BoomTown Fair Release First Major Lineup Announcement!

Madness / Damian ‘Jr Gong’ Marley / Fat Freddy’s Drop / Leftfield / Parov Stelar / Fun Lovin’ Criminals / Morgan Heritage / Imelda May / Beardyman/ Tanya Stephens/ Mad Caddies / Levellers / Inner Circle 

BoomTown Fair has announced the first batch of headline artists for Chapter 8 of the fully immersive, genre-spanning festival. The headliners include three acts who have been at the top of the BoomTown wish list since day one and represent the musical foundations of the trailblazing independent festival: UK ska powerhouse MADNESS, reggae royalty DAMIAN ‘JR GONG’ MARLEY and New Zealand 7-piece dub specialists FAT FREDDY’S DROP.

Over the 11-14th August, 50,000 citizens will descend on the Matterley Estate, Winchester amid a theatrical narrative of revolution, across nine individually themed city districts with a soundtrack covering all bases of the musical spectrum. Joining Madness in the Town Centre, prepare for Fun Lovin’ Criminals’ block-rocking fusion of hip-hop, funk and punk, British electronic luminaries Leftfield and festival outlaws the Levellers delivering their political brand of folk-rock. Back by popular demand are 2-tone ska heroes Bad Manners and California ska-punk legends Mad Caddies, keeping energy levels high alongside 10-piece French ska rockers Babylon Circus, Austrian electro-swing pioneer Parov Stelar and the superhuman mouth-driven music of Beardyman.

The Lion’s Den has cemented its reputation as the UK’s biggest reggae stage, and its Chapter 8 lineup features a suitably all-star cast of reggae, dub and dancehall VIPs. Entering the Den alongside Damian ‘Jr Gong’ Marley and Fat Freddy’s Drop is another of BoomTown’s most requested acts and one of the first ladies of dancehall; welcomed back to the festival with arms wide open, Tanya Stephens. Straight out of Jamaica, we proudly host prominent reggae artists and committed Rastafarian vocalists Junior Kelly and Tarrus Riley, plus Inner Circle and Morgan Heritage, iconic bands whose sounds resonate as strongly in 2016 as they have throughout their extensive careers.

Now firmly settled in its new location, The Old Mines stage will be showcasing the best in folk, world and roots music, headed up by the unique rockabilly-blues sounds of Irish vocalist Imelda May, UK folk favourite and 2005 Mercury Music Prize nominee Seth Lakeman and one of the most respected world fusion bands on the planet, Afro Celt Soundsystem. Reunited nine-piece Catalan collective Ojos de Brujo are guaranteed to turn the Mines inside out with their hip-hop tinged take on flamenco, and off the back of a number of sold out shows across the UK and Europe, US group Nahko And Medicine For The People bring their alchemy of folk, reggae and hip-hop.

BoomTown’s Latin district Barrio Loco will be in full-on carnival mode as ever, with the Poco Loco stage rocking to the sounds of New York hip-hop giant Pharaoh Monche and British genre-benders Foreign Beggars, back after smashing the BoomTown Winter Gathering to bits. The all-new Mi Casa stage caters for the house and techno heads, welcoming Detroit pioneers Derrick May and Octave One (live) and UK DJs du jour Jackmaster, Skream and Shadow Child.

With the towering Bang Hai Palace on its frontline, DSTRKT 5 will blow minds even further in 2016. Causing mayhem on the Bang Hai stage are takeovers from some of the biggest brands in drum and bass; Critical Music and Ram Records, plus Full Cycle celebrating 20 years in the game with Roni Size and DJ Krust reuniting on the decks. More drum and bass legends feature in the form of DJ Hype b2b DJ Hazard, with Calyx and Teebee bringing their brain-melting six deck show.  Representing the cream of the bass music crop on Bang Hai is Bristol boys-done-good My Nu Leng & Dread MC, and garage super-group TQD (Royal T, DJ Q and Flava D).

Elsewhere in DSTRKT 5, three brand new stages will be firing out signals from across the electronic music continuum. The dystopian android vibes of the Robotica stage will be soundtracked by supersonic beats and bass from Koan Sound and old skool forefathers Shades of Rhythm, while the revolution HQ stage Sector 6, hosts innovators from both sides of the pond;DJ Craze and Derrick Carter fly in from the USA, and So Solid Crew, Newham Generals and a Deep Medi takeover fly the flag for UK homegrown sounds. Those craving harder and faster BPMs will find sanctuary in Muuti’s Scrapyard, where the likes of Angerfist, Dr. Peacock and Radium will unleash hardcore rave carnage.

After the huge success of the Psychedelic Forest in Chapter 7, the area returns with a lineup of scene-leading artists, with the likes of Gaudi, Neelix, Shpongle, Skazi and Hallucinogen showcasing the finest in psychedelic trance, techno, breakbeat and ambient.

This is just the first wave of headliners for BoomTown Chapter 8. The full district lineups will be announced at 1pm on Tuesdays and Fridays from February 9th.

Sunfall 2016

Welcome to Sunfall, not just another London festival*

Launching this summer, a celebration of the underground is brought to you as Brockwell Park is taken over on Saturday 9th July 2016.

As revealed previously Sunfall are taking a new approach: each Sunfall ticket will be a joint ticket. One ticket will give you entry to our outdoor day festival as well as a night-session of your choice. Buy your ticket based on your chosen night-session; go day-to-night-to dawn with Sunfall.

Reflecting London’s eclectic beat, the daytime line-up is as follows:


Curated by a group of people who live and breath this music everyday, we wanted to build something for those who are part of this city; who revel in its far-reaching scenes and sounds. This one’s for us.

This is only the beginning as the night session billings are announced later this week with more names to follow. Know you’re in safe hands though, as enlisted are the likes of Benji B’s Deviation, Goldie’s MetalheadzDimensions FestivalPhonox presents From Glasgow to DetroitStudio 89Outlook Festival x Just Jam, Mister Saturday Night x Rhythm Section and A Taste of Afrobeat Vibration as nighttime hosts.

The night sessions aren’t an afterthought; they’re intrinsic to the workings of Sunfall who support London’s incredible nightlife setting.

Festival programmer Andy Peyton says: “Our background is in London clubbing, we understand the importance of great sound and longer sets. With Sunfall we wanted to bring that attention to detail to the British summer festival we know and love. Our day-to-night concept allows us to marry these two cultures.” 

Attention will also be paid to the festival’s production, something Sunfall’s co-founders have a wealth of experience with. Fellow programmer Noah Ball of Dimensions and Outlook festival: “We committed to this project as we knew we could deliver the same quality of production to London as we do in Croatia, we can’t wait to get going.”

They join Dixon, MCDE, Ben UFO, Gerd Janson, Craig Richards, Joy Orbison, Midland, Horse Meat Disco, Prosumer, Hunee, Tama Sumo, Job Jobse, Fort Romeau, Red Axes, Lord Of The Isles and Khruangbin

Croatia’s latest chapter begins 29th June – Weds 6th July 2016
Love International is the spiritual successor to The Garden Festival

Boat and club parties will be announced soon

Go to www.loveinternationalfestival.com for full information

In 2016 Love International continues the legacy left by The Garden Festival in Croatia, the region’s founding event and the one which inspired the now burgeoning scene of electronic music along the country’s stunning coast.

Harnessing a unique sense of intimacy and inspiration, Love International launches this summer in the picture-postcard town of Tisno, surrounded by verdant pine forests and the glittering waters of the Adriatic Sea, hidden away with its own secluded beach and bay. By day a beatific chill-out under the sizzling sun, then as the evenings gather pace the stars come out and the enchanting site transforms; as night closes in it becomes a pulsating festival which looks out across the sea, the action culminating at the stunning fully outdoor club, Barbarella’s, to see the sun’s rise. This tiny strip of true paradise draws music lovers and adventure seekers from across the world to Croatia for a mesmerising holiday and festival odyssey.

Making its debut on June 29th, Love International’s ethos might already feel a little familiar, curated by Dave Harvey and Tom Paine who have many years of experience working with The Garden Festival’s crew and shaping its artist bookings. Now they are realising their full vision, bringing back some old friends who have graced Tisno over the years and also introducing many of the world’s most revered DJs and producers for the first time to Tisno.

Five of the just revealed names are all amazing artists in their own right, each bringing something different to Love International. Eats Everything is quite simply one of the world’s biggest DJs and for the last three years he has blown Tisno away; for pure electric party vibes it doesn’t get any better. Bicep had a huge 2015 and the duo are all set to make this year even bigger, sculpting sublime sets across disco, house and techno, whilst Jackmaster played arguably one of the defining sets of last year with Armand Van Helden, their Boiler Room show skipping between French touch to garage and everything good inbetween. Roman Flugel is a Teutonic legend from the early 1990s crossing ambient, house, techno, electro and leftfield, and prime Swedish export Axel Boman is a bit of a young legend already; his Studio Barnhus label is a source of great material, and he has released and remixed on Permanent Vacation, Moodmusic and Hypercolour. The guys are joined by the already announced Dixon, Motor City Drum Ensemble, Ben UFO, Gerd Janson, Craig Richards, Joy Orbison, Midland, Horse Meat Disco, Prosumer, Hunee and Job Jobse.

Further guests announced include Young Marco and his gleefully genre-seguing sets which have brought him great acclaim; the Dutch DJ is one of the scene’s most creative minds, and Tisno faves Crazy P Soundsystem make their annual pilgrimage to the region. Felix Dickinson continues to add to his sublime career, from Burning Man to Glastonbury to Bad Passion resident, and to being a pivotal part of the UK house music scene, whilst Tisno regulars PBR Streetgang bring back their epic party music. Subclub duo Harri & Domenic make their debut, fresh from DJ Mag awarding them Best Small Club of 2015, and re-Rex club resident and frequent Panorama Bar guest Jennifer Cardini also joins the festival and makes her debut. Metro Area’s Darshan Jesrani is another welcome face, fusing disco and house to seamless effect, and the esteemed Maxxi Soundsystem has released on Futureboogie, Ellum Audio, Hypercolour, Wolf Music and makes a welcome return. Classic statesman and long-time DLC collaborator Luke Solomon takes to the decks too, and Dalston Superstore’s Dan Beaumont returns after last year’s boat mayhem.

Festival runs from Thursday 4th – Monday 8th August

Soundwave takes place in the beautiful and enchanting Garden Resort, a mesmerising piece of paradise hidden along the Dalmatian coastline, returning for its 8th season in August.

Sound-tracked by the some of the world’s finest exponents of broken beat, reggae, afro to acid jazz, hip-hop, soul, funk, drum and bass, vocalists, rappers and more, the festival is a harmonious and beatific odyssey which seamlessly merges a sublime holiday and musical escape like no other.

Soundwave is revered for its eclectic range of bookings and its laid back attitude, which come together in an enchanting adventure by the sea, exploring a range of music seldom heard in the Adriatic region. It’s a journey which explores a different path to many of the region’s other festivals, a little more edifying and spiritually enriching, set under the sizzling Croatian sun and star-lit skies.

The headliners for Soundwave have now been revealed. While a member of the New York City duo Organized Konfusion, Pharoahe Monch developed a reputation as one of underground hip-hop’s preeminent lyricists, crafting intricate and intelligent raps with partner Prince Poetry. He is also an incisive political and social commentator, using hip-hop as a platform for political engagement. Calibre is responsible for some of the most beautiful and sublime tracks in drum and bass. Releasing on only the most distinguished labels, including his own Signature Recordings, Calibre’s distinctive sound has progressed taking on elements of jazz, funk, dub and techno whilst losing none of its esteemed soul.

Many more great artists join the festival. Digital Mystikz’s Mala returns with a heavy dose of bass-shaking dubstep, whilst one of 6 Music’s lead presenters Craig Charles, a funk and soul DJ and prime instigator of good times, makes a very welcome return. Fatima & The Eglo Band perform live; soul star Fatima has worked with everyone from Floatings Points, Shafiq Husayn (Sa-Ra) and Dam Funk, and the band are drawn from performers from the famed Eglo label. Still on the live side, Gentleman’s Dub Club will deliver their energetic and exhilarating live show, emerging from the UK reggae and bass music scene as its prime exponents. Channel One Sound System have been at the Notting Hill Carnival for over 30 years and are the UK’s most prominent and respected reggae crew; the Red Bull Culture Clash winners are set to bring ground-shaking bass to Tisno.

Back to genre-skipping delights, the Riot Jazz Brass Band bring peace-lovin’ aggro jazz, hip-hop samples, funked-up favourites and re-interpreted dubstep too, dropping drum and bass and dancefloor bangers that always have everyone dancing. Romare sublime cut ’n’ paste style blends Afrocentric beats and global inspirations, encapsulated in his brilliant Projections album; this also translates into bouncing party sets of the highest order. And the incredible voice of Harleighblu is set to enchant, the young singer and songwriter one of the UK’s brightest new names. Clap! Clap! is the project by the Italian producer C. Crisci. His focus is around sampling African tribes, bands and singers, creating tribal rhythms through drum machines and synths. And BAFTA and MOBO award winning artist Akala is a rapper with heart, soul and steel, a historian who brings a touch of lyrical grace and edge to Soundwave.

Rinse FM presenter and DJ Josey Rebelle’s house and techno spans across time and space, venturing into rare groove, soul and garage, and Eglo Record’s boss Alexander Nut brings his richly varied sounds to the festival. Henry Wu hails from 22a Records, a young label which has been causing a real stir. Their beautiful tracks are inspired by luminaries including Roy Ayers and John Coltrane to form jazzy, dubby soulful beats. Further names announced for Soundwave include Dan Shake, Jordan Rakei, Harvey Sutherland, Flo Real (Mahogani Music), Chunky, Werkha, Eva Lazarus, Bambooman, Sarah Williams White, Bobbafat, Gilla, DJ Mylz, Tehbis, Normanton Street, Chiminyo, CC Disco, Taste The Difference, So Fresh So Clean, Plates and Tuckshop.

The Garden Resort is a true slice of paradise nestled on the Dalmatian coastline. Blessed with crystal clear azure Adriatic waters, sizzling sunshine and star-lit night skies, the idyllic and intimate setting welcomes a global crowd of music lovers and adventure seekers to Tisno.

The site has the incredible water-side beach bar, where you are so close to the sea you are almost dancing in it, and cosy curl of beach which looks out over the bay. The site’s main stage is a little way behind, perfect for headline acts, and nearby nestled under the canopy of trees is the Olive Grove stage. It’s a beautiful location, everything built around nature, growing like the environment around it, rich with intimacy and a sense of wonder. And a short drive away is the incredible Barbarella’s club, a fully open air space, powered by Funkion One, redolent of Ibiza’s formative early days. As dawn breaks and the sun slowly comes up, there is no place else like it.

£125 for 5 days (club and boat parties extra)

Amy’s Mobile Kitchen’s soup-er charity tour:

We’re always delighted to see brands launch projects for a good cause, which is why Amy’s Kitchen’s latest initiative didn’t escape our attention. Not content with focusing on one place, Amy’s Mobile Kitchen will be travelling to three of the UK’s biggest cities – London, Manchester and Glasgow – to serve up bowls of soup in exchange for donations towards charity.

First stop is London from the 1st to the 14th February 2016, followed by Manchester from 16th to the 21st February. Finally the travelling kitchen will make its way to Glasgow (23rd – 28th February). Along the way, Amy’s Kitchen will team up with local bakeries The Dusty Knuckle, Trove Food and bakery47 in each of the respective cities. Their fresh, artisanal bread will be served alongside Amy’s Kitchen’s vegetarian soups – perfect if you want to grab a warming winter’s lunch!

The proceeds will go to three great causes, since Amy’s Kitchen is partnering with a different charity in each of the locations: Café from Crisis (London), Back On Track (Manchester) and End Youth Homelessness (Manchester).

The van should be hard to miss, since artist Alice Stevenson has created some eye-catching illustrations to decorate the Mobile Kitchen. But if you do want to find out about the van’s exact location, you can check Instagram or Twitter, under the handle @amyskitchenuk and the #amysmobilekitchen hashtag.
