Underage Festival 2012 cancelled

 

Update: Cancelled 27 July 2012

Underage Festival, the world’s first and only strictly 13–18s festival, is returning to London for a sixth year this August Bank Holiday.

Heading to the new location of Shoreditch Park will be one of 2012’s most exciting acts, Brixton born songstress Jessie Ware – who has recently collaborated with artists including Sampha and SBTRKT – and fellow collaborators, the production duo Disclosure, who have enjoyed a stratospheric rise to fame over the past year for their innovative remixes and irresistibly catchy own brand two-step tinged house.

Also confirmed for 2012 are dance-punk outfit Hadouken!, and the soul singer Lianne La Havas, who is widely tipped as one of the most exciting vocalists to emerge from the UK and counts everyone from Prince to Stevie Wonder amongst her high profile fans.

Thirteen-year-old singer/songwriter Mahalia will also be entertaining her Underage contemporaries with her deeply affecting voice and beautiful songs, all of which are self-written.

Willy Moon will be educating Underage festival goers in rockabilly swing and rock’n’roll whilst teaching a thing or two about snappy dressing, while Camden rock four-piece Tribes and fellow Londoners and relative newcomers Zulu Winter, who have been favourably compared to everyone from Foals to stadium rockers Coldplay.

Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs whose recent LP ‘Trouble’ has received widespread critical acclaim, join the line up alongside Brooklyn based boy/girl group Friends, whose debut album ‘Manifest!’ was recently given Rough Trade East’s Album Of The Month accolade.

Also onboard is Devlin, the Dagenham-born, sharp-tongued rapper and MC, who will be closing the festival on Friday 31st August. Having broken through to the forefront of the Urban British scene with his innovative lyrics and talent for delivering complex bars delivered at breakneck speed, Devlin returns this summer with a new album following his hugely successful debut Bud, Sweat and Beers, and promises to deliver a truly memorable closing set.

Full lineup:

BIGkids, Cashtastic, Citizens!, Deap Vally, Dear Prudence, Devlin, Disclosure (Live), Dog Is Dead, Dry the River, Eugene McGuinness, Fixers, Foals DJ, Friends, Hadouken!, Iceage, Jessie Ware, Lianne La Havas, Mahalia, Maverick Sabre, Misha B, Outfit, Palma Violets, Pulled Apart By Horses, Rustie, Savages, Scru Fizzer, Skepta, Spector, Summer Camp, Theme Park, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, Tribes, Willy Moon, Zulu Winter
