The Heritage Orchestra

The Heritage Orchestra appearing at this event

Heritage Orchestra rocks out arenas, messes with other peoples music, and keeps orchestral tradition in the cellar. Since 2004 this renegade ensemble has written it's own music, veered wildly between genres, and collaborated with a diverse and high profile array of artists. HO has embraced sound, visual, and adaptive music technology in ways that make other orchestras recoil in fear, and revels in challenging the idea of what live music can be…

Sharon Van Etten

Sharon Van Etten appearing at this event

Indie-folk singer-songwriter Sharon Van Etten performs beautiful and powerful heartfelt songs. The Brookyln, New York artist's rise has seen her gain regular support from BBC 6Music and receive glowing reviews. "Etten and her band display a hypnotic, off-kilter shimmer like that which Throwing Muses once brought to the alternative rock of the late 80s" - The Observer.

Serpentwithfeet appearing at this event

Serpentwithfeet, a project name that touches on prelapsarian notions of innocence and sin as deftly as Serpent's songs bridge R&B, gospel, classical, and electronic music. Serpent grew up in a religious family in Baltimore, listening to classical music and gospel before moving to Philadelphia to study classical vocal training at the city's University of the Arts. After a few years in Philly's music scene, he moved to New York City.

Hercules & Love Affair

Hercules & Love Affair appearing at this event

One of dance music’s finest live acts, the collaborative rotating door of personalities that makes up Hercules and Love Affair has always been a broad church. Ringmaster Andy Butler says he has only one consideration when assembling a new line-up for a pristine phase of his epic musical journey through the dynamics of past, present and future night-life. “The key to the Hercules project is that I don’t want people coming to the table with nothing to say.”
