Eden Festival have decided to unveil their first wave of headliners for the 2017 event. With over 300 acts at the event, this years star studded line up will be released in three big announcements.
Co-Director Adam Curtis said: “We are really excited to be releasing this years extra large line up in three separate releases, every consecutive Wednesday over 2 weeks (1st, 8th and 15th Feb). The buzz around this years line up is electric and we hope not to disappoint with our biggest line up to date!”
Headliners Gogol Bordello is an American Gypsy punk band from the Lower East Side of Manhattan, inspired by Gypsy music mixed with punk and dub and known for spectacular theatrical stage shows.
The legendary Alabama 3 will be bringing their blues sound and experimenting with acid house and techno. Alice Russell is a music force to be reckoned with bringing plenty of soul to the garden, with the late night party being supplied by Dub Phizix & Strategy known for their monstrous bass.
Co- Director Meredith Langley Vine “This years line up is our strongest line up yet and we are very excited to be bringing such a legendary array of both current and classic acts to the festival. We have some very interesting and quite surprising acts to follow – we think your going to like it!”
