Dizzee Rascal, Chase and Status, Friendly Fires, Nero, Labrinth and more set for Beach Break Live 2012

February 21, 2012

 
Beach Break Live, the much loved UK student festival, announce their biggest ever line-up with Chase and Status [live], Dizzee Rascal, Friendly Fires, Nero, Maverick Sabre, Labrinth, Wretch 32 and many more.

DJ Fresh will be performing live as well as Ben Howard, Delilah, Ghostpoet, Skream, Benga [live] Mistajam, The Whip, Scroobius Pip, Toddla T, The Milk, Clement Marfo & The Frontline and the legendary Hostpitality will be bringing their artists to Beach Break Live 2012
 

Beach Break Live has today announced its biggest, best and boldest line-up to date, which features some of music’s brightest stars and hottest new talent. Taking place from 14th – 18th June in Pembrey Country Park the four-day extravaganza will welcome the mighty Chase and Status, who will be performing live on Friday, grime maestro Dizzee Rascal who will be topping Saturday’s bill and Friendly Fires, who will raise the roof on Sunday, closing what is without doubt the most exciting festival line-up of the summer. With tickets priced from just £109, Beach Break Live will be buzzing with festival goers enjoying the epic line-up and four fun-filled days in the sun which will see everything from Roller Disco’s to The Celtic Games.


After Beach Break Live gave Chase and Status their first ever headline show in 2010, the duo have risen to global stardom pioneering drum and bass in the UK singles chart and bringing the genre to the forefront of the music industry. They will be joined by multi-talented producer and artist in his own right Labrinth, who shot to fame in 2011 with his numerous collaborations and hugely successful singles ‘Let The Sun Shine’ and ‘Earthquake’. BRITs Critics Choice-nominated Maverick Sabre will stun the crowds with his beautiful voice while hotly tipped London band Clement Marfo & The Frontline will be skanking down in their uniquely urban style. The coveted Delilah will no doubt be performing her single ‘GO’ which has received huge critical acclaim and resonated with fans across the UK. Dubstep chart toppers Nero will bring hits such as ‘Me And You’ and ‘Promises’ to the Beach Break Live Dance Stage.

As with Chase & Status, Beach Break Live is hugely excited to be welcoming the return of another festival favourite, BRITs awards winner Dizzee Rascal who will headline The Dell Main Stage on Saturday. Having stuck with Beach Break through the infamous 2009 site move to perform his first ever headline festival show, Dizzee returns as the notorious icon of the UK grime and urban scene to blow the minds of 20,000 festival goers in Wales. Festival goers will be going ‘Bonkers’ for everything Beach Break this year, from Zorbing down the 8-mile beach to horseriding through the waves, this festival offers everything fun in one place.

DJ Fresh, who has just reached No. 1 in the UK singles chart, will be showcasing his new live tour, which includes a full band and a tonne of technology as a back drop to his hard hitting bass lines. Since 2010 Wretch 32 has been steadily rising up the charts thanks to breakthrough singles from his hugely successful album ‘Black and White’. 2012 is set to continue that trend, if not garner even more success for the grime MC when he performs at this year’s Beach Break Live 2012. Embarking on UK tours this February, Beach Break is delighted to be welcoming both Manchester indie rockers The Whip and lyrical genius Ghostpoet to the festival for the first time while the newly appointed BBC Radio 1 contingent Benga [live] and Skream will be offering up the kind of cutting edge drum ‘n’ bass that has seen them become two of the most talked about DJs and producers in the business.

The infamous Ghetto Blaster stage is returning yet again to Beach Break Live, true to form artists will be keeping festival goers up into the small hours with a mash up of unique dubstep from Toddla T, Rinse FM’s very own Oneman and Glasgows champian DJ and Numbers label founder, Jackmaster, will be spinning the decks with a frenzy of electronic bass and beats. Blawan will also be joining the boys on the Ghetto Blaster stage, hotly tipped producer of 2011 will no doubt be bringing even more to the dance table in 2012. Festival circuit pros DJ Parker, DJ Cheeba and DJ Moneyshot will be spinning the decks in Chai Wallah whilst rising talents Mystery, SDM, MTD and Dutty Dan will also be performing around the site. Propaganda will be starting the post main stage party in the ActionAid tent every night, with some secret DJ sets to top it off!

With the highly anticipated second album from Friendly Fires tantalisingly close to being released, there’s little doubt that the St. Albans trio will be a festival highlight for many a Beach Breaker in 2012 when the boys close proceedings on the Dell Main Stage on Sunday. They will be joined by Beach Break regular and rapidly rising singer songwriter Ben Howard while Merlin’s Forest is set for the ultimate drum ‘n’ bass takeover when the one-and-only Hospitality unleash their collective on Sunday. High Contrast, Netsky, Camo & Krooked, Danny Byrd and more will take to the decks for what promises to be a unforgettable show.

Editors Notes

Beach Break Live has become the destination for thousands of Students over the last five years, now in its sixth successful year the team are still striving to make it bigger and better than ever. A brief foray in TV stardom on the Dragons Den to the near miss of the infamous ‘Zoo Break Live’ has lead to a sell-out 20,000 student celebration of the end of exams and the beginning of the summer.

The announcement of Madonna’s 2012 World Tour follows an extraordinary week which along with Madonna’s Bridgestone Super Bowl halftime performance saw the release of Madonna’s new single, “Give Me All Your Luvin” from her highly anticipated new album MDNA on Live Nation/Interscope Records – scheduled to be released on March 26th. MDNA is already No. 1 on iTunes in many countries including the US, UK, Germany, France, Spain, Canada, Italy, Sweden and the Netherlands.

The single’s video which stars Nicki Minaj and MIA previewed last Friday on her YouTube channel. The Madonna directed Golden Globe Award winning film “W.E.” is on general release.

Madonna’s phenomenally successful “Sticky & Sweet” Tour reaffirmed her status as one of the most successful touring artists of all time. The historic tour included such incredible touring feats as a 70,000 seat sell-out in Werchter, Belgium, a 76,000 seat sell-out in Helsinki (the largest show ever in Finland by a solo artist), 40,000 tickets sell-out in Oslo, Norway, and 72,000 tickets sold out in one day in Tallinn Estonia.

“Madonna’s track record as a world class entertainer and touring artist speaks for itself. Her artistry, talent and creative productions get bigger and better with each tour and Madonna 2012 will be no exception. We are thrilled to have her back on the road and know her fans feel the same,” commented Arthur Fogel, CEO Live Nation Entertainment Global Touring and Madonna tour promoter.

In the course of her phenomenal career, Madonna has a record breaking 37 Top 10 hits on Billboard’s Hot 100 Singles Chart along with a record breaking 40 Number 1’s on Billboard’s Dance/Club Play Song Charts. No other act has more Top 10’s on the Hot 100 or Number 1’s on the Club Chart. Madonna has sold over 300 million albums and holds the record for the most successful tour by a solo artist in history. She is a seven time Grammy winning singer, songwriter, producer and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee. Her last CD “Hard Candy,” debuted at Number 1 in 37 countries including US, UK, Canada, France and Australia. Madonna 2012 World Tour is the Material Girl’s 9th Tour. Her first tour was the 1985 Virgin Tour.

Red Hot Chili Peppers return to the UK in 2012

November 1, 2011

Red Hot Chili Peppers return to the UK in 2012 for two massive shows next summer

Multi-platinum American rock band to perform at Knebworth and Stadium of Light Sunderland in June 2012
Knebworth Park, Stevenage – Saturday 23rd June 2012

Stadium of Light, Sunderland – Sunday 24th June 2012

General sale tickets available from November 4th 2011
http://www.kililive.com

Following the recent release of their tenth studio album I’m With You earlier this year and a sold out UK arena tour, Kilimanjaro Live is proud to announce that Red Hot Chili Peppers will return to Britain in June to perform two massive open-air shows – their only UK dates of 2012. Red Hot Chili Peppers will take to the stage at Knebworth Park, Stevenage on Saturday 23rd June and Stadium of Light, Sunderland on Sunday 24th June 2012. Tickets go on sale from Friday 4th November 2011 from See Tickets http://www.seetickets.com

Set to occur just weeks before the launch of the 2012 Olympic Games in London these two very special shows will be the only opportunity for UK fans to see Red Hot Chili Peppers live in concert in 2012. Not only will the band play its first-ever major show in the North East of England (their only previous appearance being the 400 capacity Newcastle Riverside gig in 1990), Red Hot Chili Peppers will also join a list of such luminaries as Led Zeppelin, Queen, Robbie Williams and Genesis as headliners of the iconic Knebworth Park

Back in 2005, the band’s three-night headlining stint at London’s famous Hyde Park became the highest-grossing concerts at a single venue in history. These shows were bookended by the release of 2002’s By The Way and 2006’s Stadium Arcadium, which found Red Hot Chili Peppers at the height of its fame in the UK. Their current album I’m With You debuted at #1 on the UK album chart and has been critically acclaimed by British media.

One of the most successful acts in rock history, Red Hot Chili Peppers have sold more than 60 million albums, including five multi-platinum LPs and won six Grammy Awards, including ‘Best Rock Album’ for Stadium Arcadium, ‘Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group’ for Dani California, ‘Best Rock Song’ for Scar Tissue and ‘Best Hard Rock Performance with Vocal’ for Give It Away.

When asked if they’re looking forward to these headline shows, Red Hot Chili Peppers front man Anthony Keidis commented: “Our philosophy is we’ll play any day, any time and we’re coming to do Knebworth and Sunderland”. Outspoken bass player Flea also added “Hell yeah! I just wanna explode.”

Special guests joining Red Hot Chili Peppers at these two dates are to be announced in due course.
