The Big Chill is a multimedia festival, dedicated to transforming the spirit of our times. Not as hectic as Reading, not as crusty as Glastonbury, and much more intimate, The Big Chill offers its committed community of followers a highly evolved, all-round experience that is completely unique. *Please note that The Big Chill will now be hosting the Sunrise Celebration Festival after its cancellation in May. Sunrise Celebration ticket holders will now have free entry to The Big Chill.* See www.bigchill.net/ for further details.
The legendary performer whose poetic style of songwriting has influenced a whole generation of songwriters, making him one of the most unforgettable figures in the history of music. Made famous by songs such as Chelsea Hotel, Suzanne and the infamous Hallelujah, and with a career spanning five decades, Leonard Cohen is still one of the most respected and revered musicians around.
Leonard Cohen tour dates
Barratt and Fielding created the characters of Vince Noir and Howard Moon in the upstairs room of a North London pub back in the '90s. Their Edinburgh Festival debut in 1998 won them the much coveted Perrier Award for Best Newcomer and they have since gone on to take BBC TV by storm, whilst picking up more awards for live shows along the way. 'A big bouffant-haired corker of a show' (The Times)
The Mighty Boosh tour dates
The man behind the Good Times soundsystem used at the Notting Hill Carnival, regular DJ on London 94.9FM and co-founder KISS FM. Norman also takes his brand of deep, soulful house to Miss Moneypenny's, and is a much-respected DJ across the country. Norman was awarded the MBE in the Queen's honour's list 2002 for services to music.
Norman Jay tour dates
Portico (formerly Portico Quartet) are three young musicians from South London who sound like nothing you’ve ever heard before. Living and playing together they describe their ethos as like an Indy band that plays post-jazz, and their unique sound has won them fans from Gilles Peterson to Radio 4 and Notion to BBC Music Magazine, and made them Time Out’s Jazz, Folk and World music album of the year.
Portico tour dates
'Undisputed standard-bearers of electronic music', the aptly-titled Thievery Corporation borrow their music from all walks, from psychedelic rock to reggae, house to ambient - no vinyl is safe from the thievery. The duo have spent their time since their inception wisely founding a music empire that is truly something to behold.
Thievery Corporation tour dates
Musical deity and comedic visionary? Bath-born founder member of The Rubber Bishops and one of the top stand-up comedians in Britain today. He was winner of the Best Live Stand Up 1999 Award, and spent six years as team captain on BBC TV's Never Mind the Buzzcocks. Bill also starred in the sitcom Black Books and had his own series on BBC2 entitled Is it Bill Bailey?
Bill Bailey tour dates
There are hardly any bands performing today that genuinely deserve the adjective ‘legendary’. Buzzcocks are one of those very few. Their achievements are staggering: one of the original holy trinity of British punk (with the Sex Pistols and the Clash), innovators of the independent record scene and genuine punk rock superstars who have been cited as inspirational by bands as diverse as REM, Nirvana and Green Day. Eight studio albums, over twenty singles and EPs, a constellation of compilations, covers by other bands and songs on film soundtracks and advertisements have put Buzzcocks among the top echelons of British recording artists. A Mojo Inspiration award in 2006 is just one of the many accolades they have received for their work.
Buzzcocks tour dates
The acclaimed experimental Japanese recording artist and producer, taking his name from the Planet Of The Apes character.
Cornelius tour dates
Rare is the band that can captivate both punk rock kids and folk music fans. Rare still is a band that can do this by playing a ferocious combination of traditional blues, Appalachian folk, and ragged gospel. But The Agnostic Mountain Gospel Choir does just that.
