The Big Chill Goers To LOL With Lee Nelson

Festival Crowd Header

The Big Chill have announced comedy act Lee Nelson to bring laughter to your lives and even more live music!

Comedy is generally shadowed by the music at festival.  However with the addition of Lee Nelson (star of "Well Good Show" on BBC Three) and his cheeky humour its going to be difficult to say no!  With a special cocktail of fun and games best described by the man himself:

“When the boss of The Big Chill festival asked me if I’d do a couple of lines to help promote my WELL GOOD PARTY, this isn’t what I had in mind... LEE NELSON’S WELL GOOD PARTY is a brand new idea that festivals have been crying out for. It’s a non-stop 2 hour party of jokes, games, beat-boxing, relay crowd-surfing, sing-alongs and sound clashes all hosted by me! With one aim only: to put a big festival smile on people’s faces. EVERYONE welcome!”

Music acts are also being added to thick and fast evolving into the festival we love!  Amongst the latest additions to the musical offering at The Big Chill are Dutch duo Kraak and Smaak. The electronica pair are set to rock The Revellers Stage on Saturday. Also joining proceedings that day will be a live set from Kormac’s Big Band, a weighty 11-piece band combining a mix of live turntables with samplers, drums, double bass, barbershop quartet, trumpet, clarinet, banjo and live visuals.

Joining the Friday bill at The People’s Ear Stage are Lazy Habits, another performance on a grand scale with nine members commanding jazz-inspired beats, brass and bass. Jehst, the alias of YNR label founder William G. Shields, will be bringing some distinctly hip-hop sounds to the line up.

Sunday’s armoury of all things dance gets ever stronger at The People’s Ear stage as Sepalcure, a collaboration between DJs Machinedrum and Praveen, and Manchester-based producer Star Slinger also sign up to spin The Big Chill decks.
