American hip–hop legends De La Soul bring its snappy brand of ‘old–skool cool’ to the Festival Big Top. More recently known for their collaborations with Gorillaz, (including the Grammy Award winning Feel Good Inc.), De La Soul made their name with their eclectic sampling and quirky lyrics. With a string of critically acclaimed albums from Stakes is High to the cult classic De La Soul is Dead, hip–hop has rarely sounded as uplifting.
De La Soul are joined by Hypnotic Brass Ensemble who take their stylistic cues from jazz, funk, hip–hop, and various strains of world music to deliver a powerful live experience.
Support from The Kanyu Tree and Daithí, De La Soul will be playing at the Festival Big Top on Saturday 23 July at 19:00.
