With Parklife festival fast approaching, we caught up with some of the key food stalls that will locate themselves on the various big UK festival sites this Summer. Starting with Parklife, from the 6th-7th of June... What did we ask them? Their favourite musicians from their respective lineups, of course!
Read on to find out more...
Burger & Lobster for Parklife
This guy’s a legend – you have to be to make a video with Christopher Walken doing a psychedelic dance – and you can tell he’s having a better time than anyone up on the stage while he plays some absolute classic tunes. His sets are always really spot on and get the crowd going.
Is one of our absolute favourites. She is so lovely when she pops into the restaurants and has one of the best voices around. Absolutely kills it with Rudimental so really looking forward to her performing
We are hugeeee fans of Funk and Soul (with a bit of Disco mixed in) and this is what we love to play in our restaurants so Craig Charles is an absolute must as we will be totally at home with an live version of the Craig Charles Funk & Soul Show. Maybe we can swap a lobster roll for a special edition playlist for B&L….
Haven’t yet seen these guys live but am sure they will live up to the hype. Bit more of a chilled vibe with some classy techno layered with great vocals = perfect combination
Todd Terje is a house music magician and anything he plays instantly conjures up a summer disco in your mind so could you find a better match for a festival of sunshine up in Manchester? We don’t think so.
Burger & Lobster will be at Parklife 2015, 6-7th June
Voodoo Rays for We Are FSTVL
Voodoo Ray¹s and Seth go way back. For the recent fabric birthday party we rocked up, van in tow and served pulled pork pizza with meat from Seth¹s Smokey Tails joint.
Masters At Work
We love a good classic and MAW has been a classic forever! Dance to them with a regular slice in one hand and a frozen marg in the other.
Claude Von Stroke
How can you not love this big bear of a DJ, producer and all-round legend. The Dirty Bird records boss is a fave from us.
Seeing as Voodoo Ray¹s sits above acclaimed nightclub Dance Tunnel, Scottish DJ Jackmaster is no strangerŠ. We can hear him playing bangers through the floor!
Have you heard his pitched down version of Mariah Carey? Over at our sister venue Dalston Superstore we cannot get enough Mariah. Get your prance on to this.
Voodoo Rays will be at We Are FSTVL, 30-31st May
Digbeth Dining Club for MADE Birmingham
The man has an MBE for a reason. THE best DJ in the business in my opinion. My hero
Subb-An & Adam Shelton
Birmingham's finest. If you were at the last Below, you will understand, their set will be second to none
Massive fan of these breakbeat warriors. Started raving to these boys back in Manchester and they never disappointed!
Got into the Eton Messy sound a couple of years ago. brilliant to see them go from strength to strength.
Nightmares On Wax
Really exciting to see them on the line up. A warp record label institution. This will be very special!
Digbeth Dining Club will be at MADE Birmingham 25th July
Brixton Night Market for Found Festival
Will be great to catch these guys' incredible live set that pairs intense, moody house sounds with atmospheric and eerie live vocals.
George collaborated with Found last Halloween and put an amazing line-up together so it's great to see him back with his own stage at the festival, that's full of really cutting edge techno inspired talent from across Europe.
The man oozes style (we hear he's tight with Marcello Burlon), a resident at Circo Loco and we're keen to see him bring a taste of Ibiza over to the festival.
We may make the NTS VIP stage our second home for the day, especially with ice cold acts like Mosca on the bill. Find us at the front for 'Bax'. And at the back for Burger & Lobster eats!
The Black Madonna
We've heard her described as a technician behind the decks. She's one of the fastest rising acts of the year and we're hyped to hear her fresh take on the Chicago sound.
Brixton Night Market will be at Found Festival 13th June
