Last year’s event was a huge success and the event organisers are building on their promise to deliver another outstanding line up of contemporary musical talent.
Professor Green will perform before Dizzee Rascal in Stanmer Park. His debut album, ‘Alive Till I’m Dead’ crashed into the charts and went double-Gold, spawning four hit singles with ‘I Need You Tonight’, ‘Just Be Good To Green’, ‘Monster’ and 'Jungle' amassing over 500,000 sales. His second album ‘At Your Inconvenience’ produced the number 1 single ‘Read All About It’ and the size of his army of Facebook friends – 1.5 million – tells it like it is; Professor Green is a genuine super star!
Girl about town and queen of the underground Katy B enjoyed huge success with her debut album ‘On A Mission’. The Brit Award winner combines dub step, funky, house, garage and r n’ b to mesmerising effect and the London songstress has teamed up with uber producer Mark Ronson to record a track for the
Olympics. The much anticipated second album is due out this summer and her set is sure to be a Shakedown highlight.
Stooshe raise eyebrows, turn heads and set tongues wagging wherever they perform and their brash, bolshy and infectiously catchy brand of urban pop marks them out as the ultimate modern pop band.
South London MC Clement Marfo and his genre-splitting band The Frontline are a fusion of grime and hip hop with an endless supply of gargantuan pop hooks and sweet neo-soul vocals. Their music is based around positivity and inspiration, the sound of an aspirational youth and they are tipped for big things in 2012
These acts will support the irrepressible Dizzee Rascal who headlines the main stage. The ultimate showman, Dizzee Rascal ensures rapturous responses from audiences and arrives with a sack load of number 1 hits including ‘Dance Wiv Me’, ‘Bonkers’, ‘Holiday’ and ‘Dirtee Disco’.
"Been a while since I last played in Brighton”, said Dizzee. “Looking forward to Shakedown, it's gonna be massive this year!" Shakedown promoter Steve Jones comments, "Pro Green and Katy B are the perfect way to build up to Dizzee on the main stage and I cannot wait to see them getting thousands of people worked up into a frenzy. Once you see who we have playing in the dance tent you are going to be blown away."
The line up for the dance stage will be revealed shortly and Brighton will be jumping to the beats, bass and electronic rhythms of the most cutting edge musical artists at the last festival of the summer.
Union are hosting the main stage and will also be playing to get the crowd warmed up in the afternoon and Shakedown will also be showcasing one up and coming band and DJ on the main stage, who will be decided through a huge competition over the summer months.
