LOTF SECOND ANNOUNCEMENT
2nd August 2014
Lounge on the Farm is pleased to announce its second set of acts playing this summer’s event. These additions to the lineup will be joining the likes of Fun Lovin’ Criminals, Peter Hook and the Light and DJ Yoda, to name but a few.
LOTF is proud to announce that The Subways will be playing for the first time this August. Billy, Charlotte, and Josh will be bringing their raucous riffs and catchy hooks to Canterbury this summer, ahead of a string of European dates. Some of you may remember the last time The Subways played LOTF was at the old venue, The Farmhouse. It was one of the biggest shows put on here, and we expect their performance at this year’s LOTF to be just as big.
Congo Natty Dubs
Jungle icon Mikail Tafarihas has gone by many names before, such as Rebel MC, Conquering Lion, Blackstar. This year, LOTF is proud to announce that he will be playing at the festival under his latest guise Congo Natty. Congo Natty has been at the forefront of jungle production since the late eighties and is still a huge name on the scene today, with his recent show at Koko a huge success. His last album came out on infamous label Ninja Tunes to critical acclaim.
He’ll be joined by special-guest vocalists, Nanci and Phoebe, who have been setting the underground urban scene alight as of late.
Fresh off of a US tour, which featured a high-profile slot at Coachella, LOTF is pleased to welcome back local favourite, Syd Arthur. Drawing from a range of influences from the world of progressive, jazz, funk and psychedelia, Syd Arthur has been described as the natural successors to the ‘Canterbury sound’, which became famous in the ’70s. With a very contemporary nod towards Canterbury-legends Caravan, it’s easy to see why.
LOTF is proud to say that they’ve seen Syd Arthur grow from a local band to international recognition, having played at every Lounge on the Farm to date.
Lounge on the Farm is pleased to welcome back one of Canterbury’s homegrown rising stars, Sam Sure. Now based in London, Sam Sure’s minimal electronic sound and heartfelt lyrics bring depth and honesty to a mash of musical genres. Working closely with Black Butter Records, and with a pending single feature with Chase and Status’s label MTA, he is set to cause a stir in 2014.
Having played at Lounge on the Farm several times before with Giacomo, this will be his first solo show and is one not to be missed.
Tickets are on sale now for £55, and can be reserved for £15. A limited number of camping is available for an extra £10 per person.
