OnBlackheath Festival Announces Further Acts for 2017 Event
OnBlackheath Festival has announced several top acts to play their stages during the two-dayer in London, across the weekend of 9th – 10th September.
Headlining the Saturday of the autumn event are 90’s/00’s indie band, Travis, who are more than likely going to be performing their well-known tracks – Driftwood, Turn, and Happy to name but a few. In addition, you can also catch performances from electronic act, Metronomy, hip-hop royalty De la Soul will be welcomed to the stage, former Beta Band lead singer, Steve Mason, and Craig Charles will be bringing his Funk & Soul Club to the festival too.
Headlining the Sunday night are garage-rock band The Libertines, who received critical acclaim for their hit singles Don’t Look Back into the Sun and Up the Bracket. Pete, Carl & co have been in incredible form since their reunion in 2015, and with only a handful of shows scheduled over the summer, this really is one not to miss.
Also on the list are Jake Bugg, blues musician Seasick Steve, eclectic funksters the Fun Lovin’ Criminals. Marc Almond will also be appearing as part of the Chris Holland All Stars.
Added to the Saturday night line-up is grime MC/beat-poet and all-round lyrical genius, Kate Tempest. Tempest’s dystopian take on life, love, society and the wider world truly set her apart from her contemporaries and you’d be a fool to miss out on her performance. Her vocal delivery is breath-taking, flitting between poetry and rapping in a heartbeat, with the latter accompanied by some excellent electronic exhibitionism courtesy of her backing band.
You can also enjoy some really quite delicious ales courtesy of the Meantime Craft Brewery bar, who will be serving a range of Meantime’s thirstquenchers, and there is an entire area devoted to street food which will includes some food demos from top chefs, and popup restaurants will be dotted about too so you can sample a range of delightful cuisines when hunger gets the better of you.
OnBlackheath Festival takes place 9 – 10 September at Blackheath Common, Blackheath, London. Weekend tickets are available for £99.
