The sun is shining and we’ve just received the latest line-up addictions for OnBlackheath Festival 2016 in partnership with John Lewis.
Heavenly Recordings returns to the heath to curate the Heavenly Stage on Sunday and have announced the return of Saint Etienne and a special appearance from Edwyn Collins. The London independent label has discovered and released records by iconic and influential artists such as The Vines, Beth Orton and Stealing Sheep. Saint Etienne will be headlining the Heavenly Stage and playing a career spanning set.
Also confirmed is the legendary Edwyn Collins, Texan psychedelic garage band Night Beats, Australian singer-songwriter M Craft, and Dutch songstress Amber Arcades.
Heavenly label founder Jeff Barrett said: “It’s great to be back at OnBlackheath Festival which we’ve been delighted to be part of since it began. In September it’ll be 25 years since we released Saint Etienne’s first album – Foxbase Alpha – so it’s great to be celebrating this anniversary at the Festival with them. We’ve got a killer line-up, showcasing the best of Heavenly; from our beginnings to where we are now.”
With the likes of Primal Scream, Hot Chip, Belle & Sebastian, Roisin Murphy, James and Squeeze already announced, it’s shaping up to be another unforgettable year for OnBlackheath. Plus, there will be a host of culinary delights for festival revellers to gorge on.
