Today we can reveal the second wave of acts joining us at Farr Festival 2017. First up we are delighted to welcome one of the freshest and most gifted artists in R&B to Farr Festival for her eagerly-awaited debut appearance. Having been nominated for Best British Female Artist at the Brit Awards 2017 we cannot wait for Nao to take control of our live stage with her unique strand of funky, high-gloss vocals.
Through a unique live set, Leeds-based outfit Submotion Orchestra will bring their kaleidoscopic mashup of electronic bass, entrancing vox elements, ambient, jazz and dub tropes along for a truly magical performance. In addition to this, PMR Records affiliate SG Lewis will share his emotive and nocturnally-flecked soul to the live stage.
Next in line is Panorama Bar resident Tama Sumo who will join us for her second appearance, sure to heat up the woods with her brightly-hued, funky, feel-good selections. Acclaimed French selector Ivan Smagghe and Disco Halal head honcho Moscoman are also both set to unleash some heavy damage under the canopy of Bygrave Woods.
A new addition to this year's edition is our ambient stage, curated and hosted by London-based electronic music magazine Inverted Audio. “Campfire Headphase” will see the finest of otherworldly musicians come through to deliver some deeply-immersive late night moments. Expect live sets from Huerco S. and Giegling mainstay Leafar Legov alongside Glasgow’s Sad City and French enigmatic figure Basses Terres. German duo Wolf Müller & Cass. will also share the bill for what promises to be a string of unforgettable communions.
Set to take over the decks, Inverted Audio's in-house vinyl slinger Antepop will spin wax alongside Smallville’s Jacques Bon, Italian DJ John Swing, Berlin breakbeat wizard Rising Sun, L.I.E.S. very own Terekke and Firecracker label head Lindsay Todd aka House Of Traps.
Shining light on dancehall, reggae, R&B and dubwise rhythms we welcome Becca D, Jordan Rakei, Bonzai, Shanty and General Levy to Farr.
