12:55pm  Pearl Natasha

Pearl Natasha, a Zimbabwean-Irish singer, with her debut EP ‘glory’ out this year, is a soulful, passionate mainstage performer with anthemic lyrics, and Diva energy. Sharing her original songs, she takes you on a world wide trip; from the heavy rhythms of sub-Saharan Africa in “Mberi”, to the streets of Nashville with her husky vibrato and bringing you right back home to the streets of Ireland through her folksy lyricism.

With 3 music videos released in the last 12 months and airplay on BBC Introducing Manchester with latest collaboration, “Wanna Do” by Weezy Jefferson, this summer is going to be very exciting for Pearl Natasha.

3:00pm  Lence

Lence is a Rap & Spoken Word artist from Leeds, merging a passionate fast-paced delivery with insightful social commentary. His creative work has taken him up and down the country, performing at BBC 1Xtra Words First and hosting poetry & music event Blur the Lines, which has appeared at Leeds Lit Fest, producing a night in association with Come Play With Me as well as a sold out show at Leeds Playhouse for the Furnace Festival. Lence edits and directs his own music videos releasing them regularly on his YouTube Channel Lence Music. One of his latest tracks ‘Sorry I’m Like This’ premiered on BBC 6 Music.

Matthew Bradshaw, Jumbo Records said: “To me, Lence is at the absolute peak of the self produced U.K. Hiphop scene…frank introspection to keen observation all with the great production that screams out that this guy CARES about what he puts out. It’s all with a genuine working class voice that offers not only a way out and hope but also a way in. It’s inspirational stuff but it’s not afraid to touch on the darkness too. Political, powerful and fresh…I expect big things for Lence…Recommended! 6music take note!”
