|X-Festival :: Preview
The X-FESTIVAL is a new monthly Hip hop / breaks / funk festival.
Once a month there will be a breathtaking line up pitting the best artists in the world against each other for an all night party second to none on the London party scene. Furthermore the Coronet has recently been totally refurbished and has one of the most powerful sound-systems in the UK. Space for 2100 people to get funky. Good vibes, a mental LIVE line-up A night to remember. Really.
As you can see the line up are Scratch Perverts (live),
Mark Ronson (live), DJ Vadim and The Russian Percussian feat. Yarah Bravo,
Ty (live), The Nextmen (live). Plus Soul Jazz sound system and Black Grass supporting. Its all taking place at The Coronet in Elephant and Castle on the 6th December.
If this goes as well as it is looking like it will, the idea is to try and do a regular type affair to provide a stage to support LIVE new talent in the field of breaks/hip hop/eclecism. This will provide the opportunity for bands like the Nextmen or TY or Black Grass to play to 2000 odd people alongside the Perverts or Vadim AND to give an audience an opportunity to open their eyes to new acts on a big stage. We have plans to put the Pistachios alongside The Audio Bullies and D Nell alongside The Herbaliser hence hopefully creating a platform for new live music to breed. Plus the other motive for this is to have a lot of fun with this!
