Vigsy’s Festival Tip: Hospitality In The Park

Roni Size

Hospital Records presents the second edition of its definitive London drum n bass festival in Finsbury Park this weekend.

The main draw for me is that Roni​ ​Size​ will perform his 1997 Mercury Award winning album ‘New Forms’ – which celebrates its two decades this year – live on the main stage. The full potential of a live version of that album was on show when I saw them at Tribal Gathering all the way back in 1997 in a rather pokey dnb tent. I think we are in for a full-on live offering of this awesome seminal album this time around.

Also taking to the main stage will be the London​ ​Elektricity​ ​Big Band​, fronted by Hospital Records founder Tony Colman, with vocals from Liane​ ​Carroll and Dynamite​ ​MC​. There will also be DJ sets from Alix​ ​Perez​​,​ ​Danny​ ​Byrd,​ ​Sir​ ​Spyro,​ ​Fred​ ​V​ ​and Grafix.

Over seven more stages are a whole host of movers and groovers, including Calyx and Teebee, Kenny Ken, Randall, LTJ Bukem, ST Files, Chris Goss, Dom Servini, Clipz, DRS and Calibre doing a Marcus Intalex tribute set.

A big old line-up!

Saturday 23 Sep, Finsbury Park, London, N4, 11am-12.30pm, £50. More info here.
