Jesca Hoop returns to Cloudspotting Festival

We are chuffed to bits to welcome JESCA HOOP back to Cloudspotting , her first appearance at the festival since 2013. “A boisterously declarative album that’s urgent and at times seditious” (Pitchfork) 2017 has started with a bang for Jesca.  Her new LP ‘Memories Are Now’ was released in February on the legendary Sub Pop label.  It is a wonderfully dexterous collection of songs, exhibiting her wit and songwriting power.  It is also hook-laden, powerful and at times visceral and haunting, garnering excitable reviews from across the board.  Well worth waiting for 🙂 Cloudspotting Sundays are gloriously chilled days reflected by a more acoustic edge to the music programme. With that in mind, Jesca joins a gaggle of leading female artists on top of their game.  Confirmed to star on Sunday – This is The Kit, Holly Macve, Hannah Peel, and Rioghnach Connolly of The Breath.  This stellar line-up of female talent brings our weekend of excellent music and art to a conclusion of fully satisfied proportions.

Artist submissions are now closed!

Thank you so much for every musician, every band, every agent and every believer who has sent us details of their band/act to be considered for this year’s programme.  We love the fact that there is so much talent and originality in music out there and that so many artists would love to perform at Cloudspotting. This year more than any other, we have been inundated with a huge amount and range of talent but we only have so many slots we can offer and now that we are close to finalising our final programme for the festival we must close the door on submissions for this year. Please feel free to contact us in the autumn for consideration for Cloudspotting 2018 and let us know if you have any upcoming dates close to us you think we should come and see you perform live at. Have a wonderful summer, Cloudspotting Festival Team x Like this:Like...

First look at who’s at Cloudspotting 2017

We are excited to break the news of our first line-up announcement for the 7th Cloudspotting Festival (28-30 July, 2017).  After winning last year’s ‘Audience Award’, it gives us great pleasure to elevate the music and showmanship genius that is HENGE to headline or main stage on Friday night.  A product of the planet of ‘Xylanthia’ – these mystical creators of their very own ‘Cosmic Dross’ genre, are busy recording their debut album and headlining Cloudspotting is something they are very excited by. Henge’s iconic frontman Zpor says “The human beings at Cloudspotting Festival were some of the most enlightened beings we have encountered on our Earth mission so far.  We danced together, we sang and clapped our hands.  All ages, united in one song.” We are honoured to welcome international star quality with our Saturday night headliner BALOJI  for his only northern UK festival performance.  Baloji is a poet, composer-lyricist, scriptwriter and performer, video artist and stylist. Along with his full band, Baloji is an incredible live performer. His music stands at the crossroads of African music, incorporating traditional with soul, jazz and funk influences, discovered through sampling and electronic music which has its roots in the region of Belgium where Baloji grew up. His recent EP ’64 Bits & Malachite’ reflects upon his Congolese roots and the political struggles of his people while also being a joyous celebration of black dance music culture.  Cloudspotting Sundays are gloriously chilled days reflected by a more acoustic edge to the music programme. With that in mind, we are chuffed to bits to welcome one of our favourite acts of festivals past: THIS IS THE KIT, to headline....
