Afro Celt Sound System appearing at this event

Twenty years since they were formed by Grammy-nominated musician and record producer Simon Emmerson, Afro Celt Sound System have become one of world music's top acts, with sales of over one and a half million albums and two Grammy nominations to date. Their modern electronic dance rhythms are fused with traditional Irish and West African music. They deliver exhilarating live shows that range from full-on club energy to moments of intimacy, taking their cross-cultural collaboration and acclaimed live performances to another level. 2016 saw the release of ''The Source', undoubtedly their most ambitious album yet.

The Dhol Foundation

The Dhol Foundation appearing at this event

Emerging from leader Johnny Kalsi's massively popular drum classes, the Dhol Foundation (the dhol is a large North Indian drum) perform a wonderful blend of classic Indian music with global rhythms and thumping contemporary beats. This ferociously original fusion should be no surprise as Kalsi has been instrumental in some of the most groundbreaking groups on the Asian and world music scene including bhangra pioneers Alaap, Fun Da Mental, Asian Dub Foundation and Transglobal Underground.
