Kosheen (Unplugged), Sam and the Womp, Holotronica (Live 3D Show), System 7, Lazy Habits, Laid Blak, King Porter Stomp, Kalakuta Millionaires, Mezzowave ft. Alison David, Rodney Branigan, Johnny Cage and the Voodoo Groove and Charlie Miller & the Soul Agents.
Heading the bill is enchanting Welsh songstress Sian Evans (of Kosheen), whose melodic voice and stunning Celtic power vocals are said to weaken the hardest of hearts.
Loyal Sunrise fans who have returned year after year will be pleased to see the return of System 7, the headline act from the first Sunrise festival back in 2006. System 7 pioneered techno, ambient and electronica – and still puts on a phenomenal show today.
System 7 will precede Holotronica, a ground-breaking new 3D AV project from Stuart Warren-Hill of Ninja Tune/Hexstatic fame. It’s the first time this immersive light and music show will be seen at a UK music festival, and organisers promise it will spellbind all who watch it. 3D glasses will be provided on the night.
Saturday night is party night at Sunrise, thanks to the Electro Swing Club. Presented by DJs Chris Tofu and Tall Tim, and with some of the best big show bands, live dancers and cabaret, the lineup promises to raise the roof on the Sunrise main stage tent for the festival’s big 10th Anniversary party night.
The first Electro Swing Club band to be announced is Sam and the Womp. The act, which shot to fame in 2012 when ‘Bom Bom’ reached number 1, fuses swing, brass band samples, hip hop and sweeping sub basses. It’s a must-see live festival band.
Sunrise wouldn’t be complete without its favourite hip hop groups – and this year the festival has three of the best live underground acts the UK has to offer: Lazy Habits, Laid Blak and King Porter Stomp.
New additions to the Sunrise experience include the soulful global Afro-funk rhythms of critically acclaimed 10-piece Kalakuta Millionaires, plus the groove-infused electronica of their Big Chill Label mates Mezzowave ft. Alison.
More incredible artists, craft workshops, poets, speakers and brilliant bands and performers will be announced soon – visit the Sunrise Celebration website for tickets and all the latest updates.
