Dance like an Egyptian at Southlands
TICKETS go on sale this week for the garden party turned mini festival known locally and colloquially as SouthlandsLIVE.
Set annually amid the idyllic grounds of Southlands Art Centre, The Green, West Drayton, this now popular diary date (Saturday July 21) is in its sixth year and although its kudos has snowballed it has remained decidedly cosy and rather quaint as well as remaining very entertaining.
Showcasing musical talents from in and around the Hillingdon Borough over the years has been its purpose as well as raising awareness of the facilities of the art centre itself.
As usual there will be both main stage bands and an acoustic stage for those inclined for the gentler tones as well as the diverse array of stalls in the mini market dotted between the two stages.
The entire lineup for the day is as yet unconfirmed, but those definitely down to play are as follows:
A Hillingdon indie dance four piece called Egyptians (pictured) featuring ace songwriter Ethan Beer and backed by ex Harlings and 10 Pound members; ethereal and psychedelic folk instrumentalist maestros Flutatious with their flutes, violins and keyboard flavoured stompers; a soulful, pop, jazz and rock tinged foursome from Hemel Hempstead known as April Blue; plus an opera singer from Moldova called Claudia Anghel.
So as you can see it’s quite a diverse afternoon – and that’s just a taster of the multitude of acts planned for the day ahead.
