Blissfields Is Pleased To Announce It's Next Wave Of Live Acts And Dj Names For It's 2013 Summer Event. The Likes Of London Grammar, Chlow Howl, Josef Salvat, Bondax And Fammy Join Previously Announced Names Bastille, Mystery Jets, The D.O.T., Matt Corby, Theme Park, The Staves, Marika Hackman And More.
Over the past 13 years, Blissfields has grown from a family gathering in the garden of founders' Paul and Mel Bliss into one of Britain's most celebrated small festivals, claiming the BEST SMALL FESTIVAL 2007 award at the UK Festival Awards. It remains a family-run and totally independent 2,500 capacity festival that takes all of the best bits from the big festivals, and scales it down into an intimate, friendly, beautiful setting, dominated by parkland trees, just outside of Winchester.
With their most recent track 'Hey Now' scoring 400,000 plays online in a matter of weeks, London Grammar's The XX-like delicate intricacy is matched with a big female vocal akin to Florence Welch or heady 70's soul performers. They're joined by 18-year-old singer-songwriter Chloe Howl who's infectious pop has been likened to a 2013 Lily Allen with the sharp edge of I Blame Coco, described by Pitchfork as having a "wicked lyrical bite".
Josef Salvat's quirky rhythmic croon with grand, eccentric sweeps of noise has found him compared by the Guardian recently as being "this year's Gotye", with an intelligence felt best on tracks 'Hustler' and 'This Life', he makes a Blissfields debut ahead of what will surely be a well monitored summer by music fans and industry alike. He's complimented by the Mixmag-approved "feel good production" of Bondax who also join the festival this year alongside Famy, General Roots, and a Blissfields favorite under a new guise, The Listening Party, formerly known to fans as SixNationState.
With many more acts now also now confirmed to join headliners Bastille and Mystery Jets it makes for possibly the most diverse and exciting line-up the festival has ever been proud enough to present, mixing the articulate nu with a firm, fun festival atmosphere.
Under the banner 'The Director's Cut', the award-winning Hampshire festival will be celebrating all things film in its 13th year, from the early talkies to VIP Hollywood parties. Expect a weekend full of red carpets, interactive games, popcorn-throwing dance-offs, film screenings, the best soundtracks, visual treats, hidden treasures and all the usual fun that Blissfields has become synonymous with. topped by an incredible music bill.
