Featuring

Benin City

Benin City appearing at this event

Named after a Nigerian state capital, Benin City is Theo Buckingham on drums, Tom Leaper on tenor sax, and Joshua Idehen on rhymes. Joshua met Theo Buckingham at a squat party. They struck up a loud friendship and decided to make more organised noises together. They drafted in Tom to arrange their babble into music. Voila! As a band, they've been played and championed by Jon Kennedy, Jon Hillcock, Scroobius Pip and Eddy Temple Morris (XFM) Edith Bowman and Tom Robinson (BBC6). They have gained accolades and fans for their energetic live performances, having supported Soweto Kinch, VV Brown, Moko and Youngblood Brass band.

Du Blonde

Du Blonde appearing at this event

Like if Nico sang about milk bottles or 'a Joni Mitchell for the anti-folk generation' (NME), Newcastle's Du Blonde has been bubbling under since 2008 with sporadic singles and EPs, until 2012 finally saw the release of her debut album on Mute, 'Yours Truly, Cellophane Nose', joined by her merry band of men known as The Hooves Of Destiny. An eclectic blend of folk, soprano warbles and quirky art-pop songs.
