Chagstock Festival already boasts an impressive line up and have already secured KT TUNSTALL, ALABAMA 3 and SETH LAKEMAN for festival goers this summer along with a great supporting line up! If that wasn’t enough, Chagstock Festival excited to announce that the main headliners for Chagstock 2012 will be Fun Lovin’ Criminals.
They are, still, the world’s finest and only purveyors of cinematic hobo hip-hop rock ‘n’ roll blues-jazz soul-review vibes. The planet’s best-loved “cousins from New York” who, through the mid-late 90s, chronicled life in their native city while bending the global ear to the sonic possibilities of exuberant hip-hop gangster-rock merged with lounge music, funk, Mariachi trumpets and bassomatic Barry White. While possibly smoking a cheroot, in a sweat-dripped Puerto Rican nightclub, somewhere on the Lower East Side.
Like The Killers and Kings of Leon today, the UK loved them first, the most; whip-smart story-tellers in smarter Savile Row suits, who told vibrant, satirical, comically tall tales of living large in the neon metropolis via music, crime and existential ennui.
Peppermint witnessed the Criminals from our Bar at Bingley Live last year and they made for a very entertaining set, the crowd loved it. Chagstock Festival is also supporting WaterAid, one of Peppermint’s favourite organisations who we continue to work closely with.
