Gracing the Orchard Stage this year, feisty Imelda May will get you Nozstockers swaying to her jazzy, rockabilly melodies.
Imelda’s rise has been unstoppable since the release of her first studio album Love Tattoo in 2009, with a non-stop tour seeing her perform classic tracks to baying crowds. At the ripe old age of 9, she had fallen in love with rockabilly and the blues – singing along at home and recording herself with a plastic Fisher Price tape recorder! Imelda has true star quality and we can’t wait to hear ‘Johnny Got A Boom Boom’, ‘Inside Out’ and ‘Mayhem’ right here in our very own Orchard!
Ska-reggae powerhouse The Skints have been fusing reggae, ska, grime and hip hop since 2007 to create an incomparable sound and they loved 2013’s festival so much they have had to make a reappearance. Get your bounciest boots on – the beats are going to get dangerously infectious.
Imelda and the Skints join an already bulging line up of top talent led by Jurassic 5, Gentleman’s Dub Club, Foreign Beggars, Slamboree, Hot 8 Brass Band, Professor Elemental, Friction ft. Linguistics, Dub Phizix + Strategy, DJ Marky & MC GQ, Dimension, Rene LaVice + Stapleton, and The Prototypes.
