On the 13th May, Shadow will provide a unique insight into his work to date, and explain how the Shadowsphere was both conceived and realised. From his record-breaking debut album ‘Endtroducing…..’ via the first UNKLE record, the Quannum Projects label, the ‘4-Track Era’ project and his involvement in the ‘DJ Hero’ franchise, Shadow will step out of the sphere to lift the lid on his inspirational career.
Sufjan Stevens headlines The Dome on Saturday 14th May – again a co-promotion with The Brighton Festival. Hailing from Detroit, Sufjan’s beautiful lo-fi, alt-folk pop has been the soundtrack of the summer for many in recent years. His seminal and critically acclaimed album of 2005, Illinois, and its standout track Chicago put Sufjan firmly on the map, finding him fans across the UK. Earlier this year and to much acclaim Sufjan took his new production out on tour throughout the US. The hyper coloured, visual elements solidified the futuristic feel of 2010’s ‘THE AGE OF ADZ’. You will be in store for a real audio-visual treat.
As previously announced Friendly Fires are also headliners at the Dome with their sparkling modern pop which has ignited many dancefloors and dominated radiowaves with both their albums of off-kilter, pulsating electronica.
