So far Dummy have invited 17 acts to their AGM (Artist General Meeting) and most of them are playing live. Saturday acts include Warp / Hyperdub wonder boys Darkstar, which if you haven’t listened to their album ‘News From Nowhere‘ released earlier this year, we strongly recommend you do.
On Saturday expect a live set from free-wheeling West Londoner Only Real, who will be bringing his hazy guitar anthems and half-raps to the party (see his latest single Get It On for a fine example), while NTS DJ Nadia Ksaiba brings her faultless selection skills.
Meanwhile, a more laid-back Sunday event sees the addition of icy London-based pop duo San Zhi and the even icier electronic trio Eaux, heaping extra doses of synth-washed, piercing futuristic pop onto a day already featuring live appearances from CFCF, Amateur Best, Rainer and the excellent San Francisco producer oOoOO.
Food on both days will be provided by Tommi’s Burger Joint and Thank Cluck. Plus – in case this is a deciding factor for you – there will be beer.
