CRAIG DAVID SET TO BRING ‘TS5’ TO DEBUT EDITION OF SOUTHERN SUNSET FESTIVAL

Welcoming party people to the idyllic setting of Hastings beachside, Southern Sunset are proud to reveal none other than Craig David as the first artist set to perform at the festival’s inaugural edition this coming summer.
Taking place at The Oval in East Sussex on 5th September, the arrival of Craig David will see the R&B & Garage legend bring his hugely popular TS5 concept to the coastal venue, following a series of huge residencies at Ibiza Rocks in recent years, where Craig’s weekly pool parties have proved the most in-demand ticket on the island.
Widely recognised as a pioneer of the UK garage scene, Craig David’s double-decade career has seen the ‘Fill Me In’ star rack up a whopping 14 BRIT Award & 2 GRAMMY nominations, in addition to a record haul of 5 x victories at the MOBO Awards, with the iconic vocalist scoring a mammoth run of 15 x Top 10 singles in the official UK Charts thanks to timeless tracks such as ‘7 Days’ and ‘Walking Away’.
Lighting up Southern Sunset with his TS5 party – where Craig amalgamates his live vocals with a sizzling DJ performance as he produces live mash-ups and edits of his biggest hits – the eagerly anticipated September event is the latest brainchild of Jorge Meehan & Brian Murphy, founders of UK mega-brand, JBM Music. Booking 328 artists over the course of 64 huge music events and festivals in 2019, JBM Music is rapidly garnering a reputation as a true behemoth of the events scene. Bringing over 53,000 attendees to their previous events, 2020 promises to be an even bigger year for JBM – who were recently nominated as ‘Best Large Club Promoter’ at the annual Skiddle Awards.
Following a sold-out run of shows on his UK tour, fans are urged to act fast to secure tickets for this simply unmissable Craig David performance, with Southern Sunset passes available here

UNUM Festival Returns to the Albanian Riviera for Second Edition w/ Raresh, Seth Troxler, tINI, Sonja Moonear, Dyed Soundorom, John Dimas, Priku, Praslea, Digby, Cap and more

After making a huge impression in its first year, the magical UNUM Festival returns to the Albanian Riviera from May 28th to June 1st 2020. The first wave of names for this sun soaked, naturalistic getaway include Raresh, Seth Troxler, tINI, Sonja Moonear, Dyed Soundorom, John Dimas, Priku, Praslea, Cap, Digby, Cesar Merveille with many more to be announced.
In 2019, UNUM made an immediate mark with its debut edition, that played out on the stunning Albanian Riviera with a world class line-up. The festival really shined a spotlight on the last untapped corner of Europe: Rana e Hedhun, in the town of Shengjin, on the idyllic Albanian coastline.
Now running even longer by starting Thursday and continuing non-stop until Monday, music plays both the day and night, so you can expect blissful sunrise and sunset parties, as well as a wealth of water sports, local culture, rich food and drink offerings and a music loving crowd from all corners of the world. There are also isolated bays and golden sand beaches to explore, and all with the stunning Albanian Alps as the backdrop. UNUM is the type of blissful and dreamy, organic and natural place, that feels undiscovered and hidden away from the rest of the world.
In 2020, there are once more three stages: The Beach Stage, which runs from sunrise until sunset, will be more experimental and chilled during the daytime, to give people a place to enjoy the surroundings. The Main Stage, which runs from sunset until dawn, and finally the Into the Pines Stage, which runs 24 hours a day and mixes world renowned names, regional artists and a mix of alternative and experimental musical styles, all in the shade of lush pine trees which infuse the air with their scent.
 
More than 50 international and local artists from across the house and techno spectrum will perform, such as Raresh, Seth Troxler, tINI, Sonja Moonear, Dyed Soundorom, John Dimas, Priku, Praslea, Cap, Digby, and Cesar Merveille.

 

This is a boutique event that offers the chance to experience a brand new and lesser known corner of Europe with a world class soundtrack. There are also pre-parties lined up from now until the festival in Berlin, Zurich, Geneva, Istanbul, Tirana, Skopje, and Belgrade.

Element I. FIRE Stage

On Friday night, against a sublime, tree-lined vista, GRAMMY Award-winning producer Diplo will lead an inaugural US “Higher Ground” festival takeover on the Fire Stage, where he’ll introduce fans to his fresh, house-leaning catalogue with a little help from Lakewood veterans, Walker & Royce.

On the hunt for fresh talent? Dozens of local artists can be found blasting tunes on five additional secret stages – the result is an auditory scavenger hunt where everyone wins!

The extensive roster of health and wellness programming expands to include diverse forms of yoga, Didjeridu massages, as well as the return of popular offerings such as meditative sound baths and sunset vinyasa.
