THE UNMISSABLES: CLOCKENFLAP’S MUST-SEE LEGENDS

Sunday night will see the legendary MASSIVE ATTACK closing the festival with their dazzling full live show – featuring Mercury Prize-winning Hip-hop act Young Fathers. Also in the not-to-be-missed category are record-breaking Fab Four tribute act THE BOOTLEG BEATLES, who will lead what’s sure to be the biggest singalong of the weekend on Saturday afternoon.

 

INDIE & ALT-ROCK MAVERICKS: PUT YOUR FAITH IN A LOUD GUITAR

As well as indie-pop goddess and sometime vocalist for alternative-rock super-group Broken Social Scene FEIST and Portland alt-rock survivors THE DANDY WARHOLS, the band responsible for the global smashes Bohemian Like You and Not If You Were the Last Junkie on Earth, this year’s stellar lineup features UK punk provocateurs SLAVES, infectious Manchester indie-rockers BLOSSOMS and offbeat French quartet TOTORRO. Psychedelic rock fans, meanwhile, will be salivating over the chance to see Australian space rock maestros POND and UK mindbenders TEMPLES.

 

LORDS OF HIP-HOP: TURNTABLE MASTERS & RAZOR-SHARP MCS

Hip-hop fans are spoiled for choice this year, with a lineup featuring London grime sensation STORMZY, Edinburgh-based alternative Hip-hoppers YOUNG FATHERS and breakout LA rapper KID INK, while French producer ONRA and Californian DJ TOKIMONSTA will be serving up the freshest cuts from behind the decks.
