As one of the most influential hip hop bands ever, how do you describe a group that were were pioneers of a completely new type of music? How about “Legends”. Listed in Rolling Stone magazine as top 2 of all time greatest hip hop tunes, their timeless classic “Rappers Delight” has sold millions of copies globally. The Sugar Hill Gang continue to perform to this day, exciting festival crowds with their energetic live performances. With Master Gee and Wonder Mike at the helm, The Sugar Hill Gang will bring their natural talent to Cardiff as they headline our brand new festival DEPOT IN THE PARK 2017.
Described as “one of the greatest live band this country has”, the The Hackney Colliery Band recently headlined the AVALON stage at GLASTONBURY. With a big, modern brass sound, these are guys reinventing their genre. From playing at the closing ceremony of the LONDON 2012 OLYMPICS, sets at the MOBO, BRIT and MERCURY AWARDS, to collaborations with the likes of AMY WINEHOUSE and JAMIE CULLUM, this London group hasn’t stopped and are having a phenomenal few years.
GREG WILSON is a legendary DJ that has become one of the most important figures in the dance scene. One of the first “dance-music” specialists from the Haçienda days in Manchester, Greg was instrumental in breaking the new electronic, post-disco records coming out of New York – a sound he dubbed as ‘Electro-Funk’. One of DJ MAGAZINES TOP 20 DJ’S OF ALL TIME, he continues to produce & mix casting and brings a funky summer vibe to DEPOT IN THE PARK.
Supporting new and emerging talent, THE LIMITED are an up-and-coming five-piece band with sweeping pop melodies and catchy hooks. Currently residing in London, but with links to Cardiff, their latest track “ALRIGHT”, from their EP “MONEY”, is a testimony to how they continue to refine their sound and turn peoples heads with perfect vocals from Aled and wonderful, crafted live performances.
THE MARIACHIS are the fun loving guys regularly seen on TV screens across the UK in the Doritos ads. With their versions of pop classics with a Mexican twist that include the Human League’s ‘Don’t You Want Me’, East 17′s ‘Stay Another Day’ and Joan Jett’s ‘I Love Rock & Roll’, they have the whole country singing and partying. Having performed at GLASTONBURY and WIRELESS, we expect more fun and energy from these guys!
