Featuring

DJ Shadow

DJ Shadow appearing at this event

DJ Shadow's presence in the world of hiphop - and music in general - is hardly disputed these days. His work as a soloist is as well-recognised as his extensive collaborative efforts which range from the close-to-home Cut Chemist to a surprisingly chilling duet with Radiohead's Thom Yorke. In addition, Shadow has been widely recognised for his work in the severely abstract and psychedelic group U.N.K.L.E, whose debut album 'Psyence Fiction' caused an international stir. The Jimi Hendrix of sampling and a true pioneer in modern hip-hop and dance music.

Public Enemy

Public Enemy appearing at this event

The legendary and most controversial hip-hop outfit and pioneers of a radically new musical style. Using the music as a platform to voice the problems plaguing Black America, their angry, militant stance expressed the injustices and vented the frustrations of an entire community. With Chuck D's forcefully enlightening rhymes, the chaotic and comic Flavor Flav's cuts and oversize clocks, a truly revolutionary experience.

Astroid Boys

Astroid Boys appearing at this event

'Rising out of Cardiff’s unlikely CF10 area code, Astroid Boys have cultivated a movement that transcends multiple sub-cultures – a growth that defines them less as a band, and more as voice for the youth. With a DIY ethos rooted in the punk and hardcore scene, mixed with the raw, narrative approach of grime culture – their sound fuses together multiple perspectives, channeling their aggressions and woes into a platform for creative expression and escapism. Bringing everything to a climax through their high-energy live shows, the combination of attacking vocals, crushing guitars and Dellux’ signature production never fails to get a crowd bouncing, both cult followers and innocent bystanders alike.'
