Labrinth, Zane Lowe, Grandmaster Flash, Nero and Doorly rocking Essex
Brownstock Music Festival, held on the Brown Family’s farm, near Chelmsford in Essex has announced that Labrinth will headline the 2012 festival which will take place on the weekend of the 31st Aug, 1st and 2nd Sept. Labrinth will headline Brownstock Festival’s mainstage on the Saturday night with his full band for a live set. Festival Director Adam Brown says: “We are very excited to welcome some huge and globally recognised acts to Brownstock Festival this year and Labrinth definitely tops this off. But we are also excited about our support bands. We give everyone that applies a hearing and we genuinely think that we have a few names there that will be ringing in your ears long after we close the festival gates. Remember you heard them here first.”
Other headline names on the 2012 bill are Nero (DJ set), Grandmaster Flash, Zane Lowe, DJ Doorly, Toddla T, The Cuban Brothers and Angelos Epithemiou.
Ibiza champion Doorly says “I’m really excited to be curating my own arena at Brownstock this year. I played at the festival 2 years ago and had an absolute blast, I loved the intimate, open-minded boutique feel the place had and originally meant to do this last year but my US tour was extended so I couldn’t make it back. The vibe of Brownstock will suit the way I want to book this stage”
The festival has however received some news which has led to a change in their 2012 line up. Booked for 2012 was a performance from A Tribe Called Quest’s Phife Dawg. Sadly Phife has had to pull out of his trip to the UK due to illness resulting from a failed kidney transplant and is unable to travel following instruction from his medical team. The Brownstock team have sent their condolences to Phife and wish him a speedy recovery.
