Hospital Records have just announced that their upcoming drum and bass one-dayer Hospitality in the Park has sold out of their 10,000 tickets. The festival will take place in Finsbury Park, North London and boasts acts from all over the UK and global music scene.
If you happen to be making your way there next weekend, here’s our pick of the acts that are guaranteed blow you away…
London Elektricity Big Band
A world debut (and possibly only performance) of Tony Colman’s London Elektricity Big Band is definitely something not to miss. Colman, along with former founder Chris Gross are the parents of the Hospitality label. Colman continues to make high-tempo, feel good drum and bass, and has collected a large ensemble of big band musicians for this very special one-off performance.
Edward ‘Woody’ Allen’s euphoric and feel-good drum and bass sounds are simply wonderful. With astonishingly haunting vocals and an infectious upbeat sound, Etherwood is certainly one to watch at Hospitality In The Park.
He’s not a child of Hospitality, but Rockwell’s unusual, experimental sound fits in well to an already eclectic line-up. Not slotting into any particular genre, Rockwell mixes classic and glitchy samples with a fast-paced beat which never fails to get a crowd moving.
The Mouse Outfit
Stepping away from the all the drum and bass craziness, we have the Dub Phizik and Statergy hosted stage. The Mouse Outfit are a jazz/hip-hop collective hailing from all around the country. Featuring a huge collaboration of UK rappers and muscians, their funky, grooving music is certainly not something to be missed.
Funtcase and Cookie Monster
On the Rampage Stage we have the ambassadors for Circus Records, Funtcase and Cookie Monster. The two acts are coming together for a dub-step back to back and promises to keep the energy high and the bass low.
We’ll see you there.
