Born and Bred Festival: Ones to Watch
We have scoured the acts to pick our top artists and DJs to go see this weekend, and believe me these were some hard choices. Whoever you end up seeing this weekend, just keep these few in mind while you’re waved around Haggerston Park.
At 21 years old this soulful South London singer has managed to sell out her first London show. Her song 50/50 will have you mesmerised. She is a great alternative to the hard hitting Born and Bred grime line up.
Wiley + Slimzee
One of the founder fathers of grime is back at it again with DJ Slimzee. Expect banger after banger, mixed with a lot of grime throw backs.
Arguable one of the best DJ’s in London right now. Complexion always delivers an fire set, if you haven’t seen his Boiler Room with Lil Simz then check it out, it’ll set the tone for the weekend.
I like to call Siobhan Bell fashion’s favourite DJ, though she’s a lot more than that. Expect new school, old school and everything in-between. If you’re a swayer be prepared to actually move.
Livin’ Proof DJs
So Solid Crew
Live out the 12-year-old you dream, of screaming 21 seconds at the top of your lungs in front of Romeo and Lisa Mafia.. (or is that just me?). Obviously I recommend going to see So Solid Crew, they are practically a part of UK music history and it would just be disrespectful not too do so.
Being one of the headline acts, Novelist has made waves this year and is soon becoming one of the UK’s favourite artist. If you haven’t got him on Snapchat I recommend you do so ASAP (spoiler alert: he’s hilarious). Novelist is one of the best new wave grime musicians of the moment and it would be a shame to miss him perform.
