A truly unique blend of deep green philosophy, underground and emergent ideas, a heart felt friendly vibe and cutting edge creative content makes Sunrise Celebration the multi-award winning festival that it is. Now in its tenth year 2015 is billed as:
“A four day extravaganza of non stop trance, dance, hip hop and reggae, jungle beats and urban street, cabaret, circus, Sherpas and divine healers all to delight, amaze and transfix your senses”.
With these new names added to the line up it’s sure not to disappoint!
Omar Perry is the son of legendary reggae star Lee Scratch Perry and is a rising star in his own right who is more than ready to match the genius of his father. His new album ‘Be Cool’ is produced and released by Jamaican production legends Sly & Robbie (whose credits include Grace Jones, The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan to name just a few). Omar’s sound fuses conscious firecracker lyrics with roots reggae, dub step and hip hop flavours. Omar is an up and coming international star and we are delighted that he will be making his debut UK performance at Sunrise Celebration backed by the awesome and respected reggae all stars The Homegrown band.
A well known celebrity in the UK but still holding fast to his New York roots is Huey Morgan, lead singer of the epic Fun Lovin’ Criminals, who shot to stardom in the late nineties with their eclectic blend of hip hop, rock and funk. Whilst still the bands front man and proud to be celebrating their 20th anniversary this year, Huey now lives in the UK and has gained acclaim as a BBC radio host, much loved for his Sony Award-winning The Huey Show on 6 Music and Radio 2’s Huey After Midnight show. He’ll be joining the Sunrise line up for a much-anticipated DJ set and will be sure to funk up the main stage for a great night of dance and disco.
Will and the People have been Sunrise regulars over the last three years and each year they have grown in stature and reputation. Young and revolutionary with music that has rock, indie, ska, reggae and pop influences they have forged their own road through the rocky music industry without any help from a record label, determined to stay true to the music they want to make. The audience love them! Fun and inspiring with catchy, foot stomping tunes, big anthems and star stage presence. Watch out for these boys- they’re going to be big and make sure you catch them first at this years Sunrise.
Another up and coming star to discover on Sunrise’s main stage this year is John Fairhurst, heading up the new wave of blues artists he is gaining international acclaim for his unique sound and stunning vocals. His music will feature on two unreleased films including a performance in Martin Scorsese’s latest production “Tomorrow”, premiering at Cannes Film Festival 2015.
One of the hottest live electro-swing acts in the UK will be getting the Saturday night Swing Club off to a roaring start, The Electric Swing Circus have a powerful combination of vintage samples, electro beats, gypsy-jazz guitar, electric double bass, keys, live drums and dirty synths- these guys put on a dazzling show!
Legendary dance act The Egg with their live fusion of house, rocktronic, funk and ambient influenced dance creations will be on board to create their ultimate live dance show, a firm festival favourite and one not to be missed!
