Natural Rhythm Festival: Line-up announcement and DJ Competition
Set over two days in the lush fields and woodlands of East Anglia, Natural Rhythm promises extraordinary encounters, entertainment and an inspiring world of creativity and adventure. Expect interactive art; a live acoustic camp-fire; alternative Olympic games; a live street art exhibition and charity auction; hair, make up and dress up stalls; and a traditional ferris wheel and helter skelter.
At the height of the festival there will be four arenas powered by Funktion One and playing something for everyone. The eclectic first year line up has been announced including DJ Marky, Krafty Kuts, Clive Henry, and Mungo’s Hi Fi.
Line up confirmed so far:
Playing host to four arenas, Natural Rhythm’s aim is to cover every aspect of the Electronic music spectrum. First up, set amongst the mysterious woodland they have the aptly named Tree House, which will feature Crosstown Rebel’s and DC10 leading man Clive Henry, and Hot Creations very own rising star Richy Ahmed. There will also be DJ showcases from East London favourites Lo*kee and Spilt Milk.
Next up, the Labyrinth – a haven for Dubstep, Drum & Bass and Reggae. With Stink Like Sock and Audio Danger Records at the realm, they’ve invited special guests DJ Marky, MC LowQui, Serum, Bladerunner, Mungo’s Hi Fi, Killawatt, Sleeper and Thelem to help complete the bill.
The Rubik’s is their third arena and is a collective of the most happening parties in the region. Krafty Kuts and A-Skillz are the two main headliners who will be delivering just this, with support from Ghetto Funk’s Will Streetwise, as well as the Pow! Party Boys, Get Low Cartel, and White Noise DJ’s to name but a few!
And finally they have the Tipi, which will feature East Anglia’s top up and coming unsigned bands. The Colour Movement lead the way, with Ursa Minor, The Brass Funkeys, and The Soft also playing too. Legendary Fat Poppadaddys / Let’s Kill Disco DJ Pete Moore will be hosting in between, alongside the 1930’s Turntablist DJ Lord Fothersgill of Kent.
