The Cinematic Orchestra, Pumarosa, Tom Grennan And More Join Blissfields 2017!
22 Feb 2017
They join previously announced headliner Metronomy, plus Lady Leshurr, Sundara Karma and more
Blissfields have announced the second wave of acts for this year's “The Bizarre”-themed outing and it's a big one.
Bidding to programme a line-up unlike any other festival this summer The Cinematic Orchestra are now confirmed, as is DJ Yoda performing his “Stranger Things” mixtape as a multi screen audio-visual experience, Tom Grennan, Pumarosa, garage legends DJ Luck & MC Neat and over twenty more additions to the line-up.
Friday night headline duties on the main stage will rest with the hugely influential The Cinematic Orchestra. Usually reserved for the likes of the Sydney Opera House and London’s Barbican, Roundhouse and Royal Albert Hall venues, their live sound has been described as “unyieldingly classy” by Pitchfork and “entirely different - something original and pure in its artistic intention” by CLASH, to name a few. They’ll provide the ultimate soundscape to Friday night - an epic, heart-achingly sad, but beautiful and uplifting show - unlike any other event this summer.
They nod to Blissfields’ dedication to curate a festival line-up that is never afraid to be different. In the same vein, “The Bizarre” theme continues with DJ Yoda who will be performing his Stranger Things Mixtape live with a multi screen audio-visual experience as the show’s Thursday night headline act on the newly expanded and conceptualised Larch Stage.
Fresh arrivals into “The Bizarre” now include the stylish guitar pop Pumarosa, mesmerizingly psychedelic Flamingods, and Tom Grennan – who just featured as lead vocalist on Chase & Status’ huge ‘All Goes Wrong’ track - and The Japanese House who took the #4 spot on NME’s essential new music for 2017 poll, comparing her hugely melodic sound to “Tame Impala’s chilled moments crossed with Jamie xx’s magical rhythms.”
They join previously announced big hitters Lady Leshurr and Sundara Karma, alongside hugely exciting rising talents including Black Honey, Bonzai, Fil Bo Riva and more.
Tickets are priced at £100 for the weekend and are on sale now.
