Peter Hook, Manchester legend says:
“I've always loved the lake district and the opportunity to play with both my favorite acts, Hacienda Classical and The Light at Kendal Calling, coming there for the first time this year is really a dream come true. Who could possibly turn down double bubble.”

“It will be our pleasure to bring the FLC style to the Lake District this summer alongside the real Kings of New York; Run DMC!”

“Absolutely buzzing to be returning to Kendal Calling! Bring it on, it’s going to be special!”

No Tomorrow Festival Review 2015

Following a successful first year, No Tomorrow festival returned to Nottingham for a two-day spectacle, showcasing some of the biggest names in EDM and other chart-topping artists such as John Newman and Jessie Ware.

Not your typical large-scale music festival with tens of thousands of party-goers, No Tomorrow was comparatively much smaller; but this made the experience thoroughly more enjoyable.

With the usually unreliable British weather holding up throughout the course of the weekend, punters were able to lie on the grass and soak up the rays whilst listening to their favourite artists. Three well-staffed bars also ensured revellers did not wait long for drinks in the summer heat.

Dominating the park was the main stage which featured a brightly coloured ‘No Tomorrow’ banner with the Stealth stage occupying a gigantic tent in a sub-section of the park.

Stealth was not to be out done by its larger counterpart. A set list consisting of Garage and House well-known names such as DJ EZ, Hannah Wants and Gorgon City arguably made it the highlight of the festival.

Saturday's bill did not disappoint, Hannah Wants well and truly got the proceedings of the weekend underway and set the tone for what was to come with her one and a half hour set.

Fans packed the Stealth stage for DJ EZ and despite technical sound issues he still managed to get the crowd buzzing with a trademark mix of old school Garage anthems, rounding off what was a hugely successful first day.

Sunday built on the success of the previous day, with performances from Justin Martin on Stealth stage and Milky Chance on the main stage meaning that wherever you were there was music worth listening to.

Milky Chance’s hit ‘Stolen Dance’ was met with a great reception as fans joined in singing along with the feel good music. Whilst over on Stealth stage, Gorgon City followed Justin Martin and carried on the upbeat vibe with some well-known House tunes as the sun slowly slipped behind the clouds.

Perhaps the most notable performance of the entire weekend was My Nu Leng who closed the Stealth stage with a combination of Deep House, Grime and Rap beats working to get the crowd hyped, and ending the festival in style.

Leaving the festival to John Newman’s popular anthem ‘Love Me Again’ echoing from the main stage, party-goers were able to travel back to the city centre from the gates of Woollaton Park for £2 thanks to festival organisers.

Overall a perfect way to start the summer, a well-balanced mixture of intense and laid-back music combining to create a memorable weekend, definitely a festival SFG would recommend for the future.

We Are Rockstars announce massive Ibiza summer lineup

The world famous open-air Rocks stage will proudly welcome back three acts that have blown up since being championed by W.A.R! and booked on last years’ bill.

Exclusive shows will also come courtesy of Boy Better KnowDavid Rodigan MBE, Rinse FM and Thump.  Foundation grime crew Boy Better Know, fronted by brothers Skepta & JME and favourited by Kanye West who handpicked them to perform with him at The BRITs will be supported by veteran grime/dubstep producer & DJPlastician in June.
 
It will be a seminal moment as the legendary David Rodigan MBE takes to the stage for the first time ever in Ibiza to present ‘Ram Jam’, with support from SHY FXToddla T and Ms Dynamite in September. David Rodigan MBE said: “Very excited to be bringing Ram Jam to the Island for the very first time with my good pals Shy FX & Toddla T in tow! Sunshine and reggae, the killer combination!” 
 
For the third year running, the incredible and influential crew at Rinse FM takeover W.A.R! for a  standout show featuring grime’s ultimate pioneer Skepta, genre-crushing DJ and tastemaker Oneman, BBC Sound of 2015 nominee Novelist and Black Butter Records’ hot property Sinead Harnett.
 
From new friends to old friends, W.A.R! will welcome back BBC 1Xtra’s Mista Jam and Redlight plus Example & DJ Wire with their special ’10 Years of Ibiza’ set.  Pioneering garage selector DJ EZ heads up an enviable bill as part of the Thump takeover in June and will be joined on the line up by a selection of the best of the new breed including  bassline hit-maker Chris Lorenzo – responsible for co-producing Hannah Wants’ top 10 single ‘Rhymes’ – as well as garage-grime starlet Preditah and younger brother C4. Other hot new sets will come courtesy of breakthrough MC Stormzy plus Mella Dee, My Nu Leng and Fono who boasts a mini residency this year with four shows.   A thoroughly impressive line up that’s testament to the fluid mix of styles and sounds that W.A.R! will represent in 2015.

Bestival bring the Black Butter Soundsystem with Rudimental and more

Smashing it out of the park on the greatest opening night Bestival has ever seen, The Big Top is where you’re gonna want to be. With a headline set from techno lords Underworld and the unique talents of Jamie xx topping the bill, The Big Top will be bouncing to Black Butter Soundsystem action from special guests Rudimental who will be rocking the decks with big tunes, plus there will be garage duo Gorgon City, dubstep don Kidnap Kid,Onemangoing back to back with My Nu Leng and bass bad boy Karma Kid.

Milky Chance, Gorgon City and more added to No Tomorrow Festival

Added to the already captivating line-up are electronic-infused pop duo Milky Chance, Mercury Music Prize-nominee Nick Mulvey and Black Butter Records’ dancefloor heroes Gorgon City, plus many more. For further information and to buy tickets visit the No Tomorrow website.

Milky Chance’s unique style of electronic-infused pop tracks such as ‘Stolen Dance’ and ‘Down By The River’ have clocked up over 170 million views on YouTube. The duo consisting of Clemens Rehbein and Philipp Dausch have previously sold out two successive nights at Shepherd’s Bush Empire and scored number one singles in several European countries, an impressive feat for relative newcomers. They are being championed by the likes of Radio 1 and this summer is primed for their appearance at Nottingham’s No Tomorrow.
 
North London producers Gorgon City have racked up a top 10 album and two top 10 singles in the UK charts including ‘Ready For Your Love’, a track featuring fellow No Tomorrow performer MNEK. Their sound channels British warehouse vibes however, with SXSW showcases on the horizon, Gorgon City are headed for the global stage via their infectious club tunes and chart infiltrating hits.

Schooled in Havana, Cuba, Nick Mulvey brings a worldly mindset to his music. With two Mercury Music Prize nominations under his belt, one for his part in Portico Quartet and another as a solo artist in his own right, Mulvey is steadily ascending the scale of critically acclaimed singer-songwriters on home-ground here in the UK. His set at No Tomorrow in June will be an especially blissed-out moment of the weekend featuring tracks from his top 10 album, ‘First Mind’.
 
Continuing the thread of up and coming talent is SOAK, the 18-year-old singer-songwriter from Ireland who has been on multiple ‘ones-to-watch’ lists over the past couple of years including the BBC Sound of 2015. Now fully breaking through into the charts with melancholic hits such as ‘B a noBody’ and the Radio 1 A-listed track ‘Sea Creatures’, SOAK will surely be a highlight for No Tomorrow.
 
Another act to have collaborated with the prolific MNEK and confirmed to appear at No Tomorrow is Karen Harding. Her track ‘Say Something’ has been certified as Silver by the BPI, selling over 200,000 copies since its release in January, making the tune one of 2015’s biggest singles so far. 
 
Further breaking talent showcasing at the festival comes in the form of Manchester soul man JP Cooper. Cooper is a recent signing to the legendary Island Records, he has toured with Angie Stone and collaborated with George The Poet. Dubbed ‘Hot for 2015’ by BBC Radio 1Xtra the next addition, Zak Abel, has been building quite a reputation for his strong, distinctive vocals as featured on ‘Unmissable’, the Top 20 track by fellow No Tomorrow act Gorgon City. The festival keeps things in the family with label mates to Gorgon City, My Nu Leng. The Bristol-based My Nu Leng come highly recommended by taste-makers at Rinse, Radio 1, 1Xtra and more.
 
Finally in keeping with the electronic theme, Dirtybird co-founder Justin Martin will no doubt get the crowds dancing with his signature jacking beats.  Meanwhile chief remixer, Kiss FM stalwart and Bastille-collaborator Grades will bring his hits such as ‘Crocodile Tears’ to the No Tomorrow airwaves.
