MU­SIC FES­TI­VAL Craig David to get inside out at city fes­ti­val

South Wales Echo - - MUSIC FESTIVAL -

CRAIG David is per­form­ing at a fes­ti­val in Cardiff this week­end along with some other big-name singers and DJs.

The Seven Days singer, who re­cently can­celled an open-air show in Merthyr Tyd­fil, is bring­ing his TS5 set to the stage at the cap­i­tal’s Inside Out Fes­ti­val, which is back for its sec­ond year.

And this year, join­ing Craig David in the line-up, is DJ An­nie Mac, who will be tak­ing to the decks as the head­line act.

Re­turn­ing to Bute Park fol­low­ing its in­au­gu­ral event last sum­mer, the Ra­dio One DJ will head­line the dance event, which will take place tomorrow.

Inside Out or­gan­is­ers say this year’s fes­ti­val-go­ers can ex­pect “an ex­plo­sive line-up packed with DJs”.

They added: “Add into the mix ex­tra stages, plenty of bars, street food stands and a huge fun­fair, Inside Out Fes­ti­val 2017 will be like no other event in the city.”

The fes­ti­val is one of the lim­ited chances to see Craig David’s set, which is in­spired by his Mi­ami house par­ties, as well as a rare chance to see An­nie Mac’s DJ set live this year.

Dublin-born An­nie has spent the last decade carv­ing out a ca­reer as a broad­caster, tastemaker, in­ter­na­tional DJ.

She’s been de­scribed as “Ra­dio One’s cham­pion of new mu­sic” and “the suc­ces­sor to Zane Lowe and John Peel”.

Other acts this year in­clude Lethal Biz­zle, Si­gala, Clap­tone, P Money, Jasper James, and The Stick­men.

Cli­max Pro­mo­tions and SWG Pro­duc­tions are team­ing up with Cardiff-based Orchard En­ter­tain­ment to bring the fes­ti­val back af­ter a suc­cess­ful first year which saw per­for­mances from Tinie Tem­pah, Chase and Sta­tus, Wi­ley and Red­light at­tract thou­sands of mu­sic lovers to the dance arena.

Pablo Janczur, from Orchard En­ter­tain­ment, said: “I’m re­ally happy to be join­ing forces with Cli­max and SWG to de­liver what will be the ul­ti­mate sum­mer clos­ing event in the spec­tac­u­lar sur­round­ings of Cardiff’s Bute Park.

“We aim for this to be an an­nual must at­tend for lovers of un­der­ground dance mu­sic.”
