AND MANY MORE…
SATURDAY 21ST & SUNDAY 22ND AUGUST
OLD TOWN BOWL, SWINDON
Swindon Invincible is upping the ante for 2010 expanding for the first time into a two-day festival. Held in association with Dolby a name synonymous with quality audio, the festival has gone from strength to strength, gradually increasing its support amongst ardent fans keen to put their town on the festival map. After two successful, sell-out years at the Old Town Bowl, Swindon can now look forward to twice as much music and twice as much time to party as Invincible blossoms into a fully fledged weekender festival on Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd August 2010.
This year the festival will see a welcome appearance from Radio DJ Zane Lowe to headline the Saturday night party. The superstar DJ will be bringing his eclectic and influential taste to Swindon once again.
Vince Mancari co-organiser said on having secured Zane Lowe: “Getting someone like Zane Lowe to headline Swindon Invincible, to us is a massive coup. We are proud of what we have built in the last two years and this year to bring a line-up with artists of Zane’s calibre hopefully will get Swindon as excited as we are.”
Zane’s unique mash up set needs to be seen to be believed; he mixes, drum & bass, dubstep, dance, electro, indie, rock, and hiphop to create unbelievable crowd reactions and high energy that will get the bowl jumping.
Headlining the Sunday night and closing the weekend’s activities will be The Stanton Warriors. Dom and Mark have grown into one of the most prolific DJ acts in the world, burgeoning label bosses, and major producers on the global dance scene. The Stanton Warriors have succeeded in not only bucking musical definition but have picked it up by the collar and kicked it’s ass out of the music world. They will be bringing a brand new live show to this year’s Invincible.
This year the respective headliners will be joined by the cream-of-the-crop in upbeat dance acts including none other than Scratch Perverts a staple favourite amongst those who like to shake their booty and those who like to gawp at their other worldly turntablist skills. The almighty duo is renowned globally for their unique blend of all things bass and beats mixed in the true hip-hop style. Dub Pistols have spent the best part of a decade at the forefront of Beats culture adding a much needed Rock n Roll swagger to the UK’s dance scene. Chewing up hip-hop, dub, techno, ska and punk and spitting them out in a renegade futuristic skank they have consistently defied categorisation and exceeded the highest of expectations. Festival mavericks and entertainers to the masses (as well as the stars) The Cuban Brothers will be bringing their show stopping spectacle to Invincible this year promising a feast for the eyes, ears and souls of the fervent Invincible crowd.
There will also be appearances from the UK Beatbox Champion twice in a row, Best MC / Vocalist at the world-renowned breakbeat awards ceremony Breakspoll and one of the most talented people you will find period: Beardyman is coming to Invincible and bringing his unrivalled show with him. Local heroes Beatbullyz have gone from strength to strength after recording a session for Huw Stephens’ BBC Introducing. Their recent highlights include going on tour with Example and N Dubz, taking their energetic live show around Europe and even Channel 4’s Hollyoaks.
“Swindon Invincible this year is all about establishing the festival as the ultimate weekend in the town. We work incredibly hard on the programme, marketing and working with local partners to deliver a spectacular event that this year is all abut the whole weekend. From the pre party at Longs Bar on Saturday and Sunday, the two day festival itself and then the after parties local night clubs, we are putting on the biggest party Swindon will see this year!” commented co-organiser Steve Causer.
