It’s Sunrise in Two Weeks!
Sunrise Celebration, 29th May – 1st June, is only two weeks away and for the first time it will take place in Wales, on the beautiful Piercefield Park beside Chepstow Racecourse.
Sunrise best known for its sustainably powered ‘good vibes’ and it’s eclectic mix of groundbreaking music adds the best of old hats and up and coming acts to it’s line up.
Latest acts include, legendary reggae star Little Roy, who has recorded with Bob Marley and Lee Scratch Perry, recently famed for his covers of Nirvana classics and celestial Welsh songstress and lead singer of Kosheen, Sian Evans. She is taking time out from her European tour for a special guest acoustic set on the Spit and Sawdust stage.
Another hidden gem is Andy Barlow, from Lamb and his DJ set on the Cats Cradle stage on Saturday night. This will be followed by Eat Static’s 25th Anniversary performance- and they’ve got something very special planned!
Will and the People, up and coming indie/ reggae rock band soon to take the mainstream by storm with their catchy harmonious funky tunes will be the star of the Chai Wallahs main stage on Sunday afternoon.
Dan Bradley of Will and the People said:
“We are over the moon to be returning to Sunrise this year- beautiful festival full of beautiful people! If you like real music this is the place to be!”
Madeline Bell, US soul singer, who had a string of UK hits in the 60s includingMelting Pot ,will also be joining the festival on Sunday for a legendary set of classic songs that everyone can sing along to. She will then join Jonathan Cainer, The Daily Mail’s astrologer and champion of the free festival movement, for a discussion on ‘The Meaning of Melting Pot as a Cultural Reference Point’.
Katherine Ritchie, festival organiser said:
“Sunrise is all about the experience of discovering bands and genres that you’ve not happened on before. Like everything else in the festival, the music is about opening your mind, going on a journey of discovery, finding and losing yourself on the way and returning to the world slightly more of something than before.”
With such a fantastic mixed bag of genres and generations, The Orb, who created the genre of ambient house back in the 80s, will close the festival on Sunday night. They are the epitome of what Sunrise music is all about- the very best of progressive music by the founders of an entire genre.
