The latest addition to the Lemonfest 2017 bill is blues-influenced singer-songwriter Liam Bailey, who co-wrote and performed on Chase & Status’ single Blind Faith in 2011 (as well as having collaborated in the past with other huge names such as DJ Fresh, SHY FX and Delilah). This is not to mention his own catalogue of success across the last ten years.
Other new names are Drum‘n’Bass legends Shadow Demon Coaliton – who will be headlining this year’s Rinse-it tent on Saturday alongside Turno.
Also joining the bill are Black Foxxes, the Exeter band who have rocketed to success in the last 12 months since signing to Search & Destroy records.
The outrageous gospel ‘sin(g)ers’ Oh My God! It’s The Church are returning to Lemonfest for a 2nd year to host the official Friday night opening party, and English Disco Lovers will be hosting the brand new Funk & Soul tent, headlined by Mr Funk & Soul himself – Craig Charles.
This is the 2nd of 3 line-up announcements for the Devon festival, with a whole swathe of House & Techno DJs still to be announced in April from stages hosted by South West promoters including Apex, Souloud and Bizarre Rituals.
