Tony Allen no longer performing at the event
Farmfest have announced Roots Manuva for the headline slot which will see a full band performing tracks from classic albums such as Run Come Save Me and Slime & Reason, the show will also feature plenty from latest album, 2015’s Bleeds – a darker, more brooding affair.
Roots Manuva has been described as one of the most influential artists in British musical history and that’s a fair reflection of a man that’s remains at the pinnacle of the UK hip hop scene some 18 years after debut album Brand New Second Hand.
Roots Manuva joins previously announced headliners Shobaleader One, Squarepusher’s Live band performing Jazz Funk versions of Squarepusher Classics, plus This Is The Kit, Nightmares on Wax, Greg Wilson, Actress (DJ Set) and more.
Due to an unforeseen European booking error – a circumstance that’s out of the festival’s hands – Farmfest have announced that Tony Allen will no longer be performing at this year’s festival.
Farmfest will take place from the 28th to the 29th July 2017 at Gilcombe Farm, Bruton, Somerset.
